    If I buy my resort reservation through Disney but my park tickets through a reputable third party vendor, how do I get my magic bands and how do I make my ADR's/FastPass+ reservations by the 180 day/60 Day time slot?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome BACK to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is a great question as lots of companies, membership clubs, travel agencies, and even the U.S. Military have specially priced Disney Theme Park Tickets. I have plenty of experience in this category as I buy our Disney Theme Park Tickets from our military base and connect everything together in my 'My Disney Experience' account. Here's what you'll do:

    ~ You'll link your tickets in your My Disney Experience account, either online or through the My Disney Experience Mobile App. (In the app click 'My Tickets', then click the blue plus button on the next screen.) Once uploaded, you'll receive an email reminder of when it's time to make your FastPass+ reservations.

    ~ Once you make your Disney Resort Hotel Reservation, either online or by calling the Disney Resort Reservation Line at (407) 939-1936, your reservation will appear in your My Disney Experience Profile auto-magically. You'll be able to log in to personalize everyones MagicBands as soon as a few hours after the reservation was made, all the way up until a month before your arrival. You'll receive an email about 30 days before your check-in date that your bands have shipped to the address on file in your MDE profile.

    ~ Lastly, you can make Dining Reservations up to 180 days away from today even before your theme park tickets are linked or your Disney Resort Hotel reserved has been made. This is what I do when I'm hoping to squeeze in a trip but can't confirm the rest of our reservation until closer to check-in.

    I hope this helped, Jennifer, and We'll See You Real Soon!
