    My dad was given six tickets online under his name from his work company. Can I go to Disney with my bf if he bought his own ticket and I use one of the tickets under my dads name?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Antonio. We're so glad you're here and brought this question to us. There's nothing quite like spending a magical day at the Happiest Place on Earth with the one you love. 

    How wonderful that your dad was gifted not one, but six theme park tickets. You can absolutely use one of these to visit the Disneyland Resort with your boyfriend. To visit the parks you will need both a valid ticket and a theme park reservation. You can link the ticket under your Disney account by taking the following steps. Open the Disneyland app and tap on the ☰ icon in the lower right corner to open the menu. Next, tap on the "Tickets and Passes" tile, followed by the "+" in the upper right. Next, tap "Link Tickets & Passes" to link the ticket to your account. I find using the "Camera" option to scan the barcode is quick and easy. Now that the ticket has been linked to your account, you can make a theme park reservation for the day you want to visit.

    A couple of things you'll want to keep in mind when it comes to the ticket. If it's a 1-day, one park-per-day ticket, you will need to select which park you'd like to visit. For park hoppers, you will need to select which park you'd like to start your day at before you can start hopping at 11:00 a.m. Also, if it's a multi-day ticket, any and all days must be used within 13 days after the first use. Once your ticket is scanned by a Cast Member for entrance, your picture will be taken at the gate to serve as the ticket holder identification. 

    Now, if you plan on purchasing and using Disney Genie+ Service for your best Disney day, I recommend linking your tickets together by taking the same steps I shared above. This way you'll each have access to make Lightning Lane selections for both of you throughout the day. Yay! And don't forget to also take advantage of the unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads and capture all the memories of your magical visit. You might even want to think about getting a complimentary "I'm Celebrating:" button from City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A. to mark the occasion. In fact, I did this for my last visit with my pal when we were there simply for a girls' day.

    I hope this has been helpful, Antonio. If you find yourself with other questions, please come back to share them with us - we love to help. Here's wishing you a most magical visit!
