    My daughter is visiting Disney for the first time & with large group. The ticket was purchased through a travel agent. They will be given one 3-day ticket at the start and have to keep up with it. Is there a way to save/store her ticket for backup?

    Hi Laura!

    How exciting for your daughter to experience Walt Disney World for the very first time - it's sure to be a memorable adventure, especially surrounded by her friends! Managing tickets, especially for a first-timer in a large group, can seem a bit daunting, but there are some magical solutions to help keep everything in order.

    For safekeeping and convenience, I recommend linking her 3-day ticket to a Disney account through the My Disney Experience Mobile App or the official Walt Disney World website. Here's how to make that happen:

    If you haven't already, you'll want to help her set up a Disney account and download the My Disney Experience app on her smartphone or tablet. This will be her command center for all things Disney during her visit! The app is like holding a magic wand for your trip – it lets you manage tickets, reservations, Genie+ selections, and much more.

    Once she has the ticket in hand, she can link it to her Disney account by entering the ticket ID code into the app or website. This code can usually be found on the back of the physical ticket or in the confirmation email if the ticket was sent electronically by the travel agent.

    If she decides to purchase a MagicBand, she can link it to the ticket in her account, and wear the band on her wrist for easy access to parks, Genie+ selections (if available), and more. Alternatively, she can get a free card at Guest Relations or the front desk of her Disney hotel, which can also be linked to her ticket and used in the same way.

    As an extra precaution, it's a good idea to take a clear photo of the back of her ticket (or screenshot the e-ticket) where the ID code is visible. This way, if the physical ticket is lost, she'll have the necessary information to seek assistance at Guest Relations. This is always the very first thing I had my daughter do when on school Disney trips! For added security, consider getting a lanyard with a clear pouch for her to keep the ticket safe and easily accessible throughout her visit. Oftentimes group trip organizers will provide lanyards for the group.

    By linking the ticket to the My Disney Experience app and taking these precautions, you'll ensure her ticket is safely stored and easily retrievable, letting her focus on the magic and fun of her Disney experience!

    I hope this helps, and that she has a magical first Walt Disney World visit!
