    I have my Disneyland account and purchased a hotel reservation as well as the theme park reservations. Once I’ve connected the magic band + to the account, will I be able to link it to my mothers ticket that was purchased with my account?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Hocabeth!

    Thanks for stopping by with your Disneyland Resort vacation planning question. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! Oh boy - your trip to The Happiest Place on Earth is just days away. Get excited - your club of Mouseketeers is in for an incredible time! Hocabeth, I'm here to help you prepare for a magical and memorable trip.

    MagicBand+ will allow you to unlock a little extra pixie dust during your upcoming visit. From seamless hands-free theme park entry to special interactive experiences throughout the theme parks and during select nighttime spectaculars, MagicBand+ is a fantastic way to enhance your time at the Disneyland Resort! Hocabeth, when you're ready to link your mother's MagicBand+, open the Disneyland Resort mobile app and navigate to the "MagicBand+" tab. Then, select the "+" icon in the top right corner. Next, select "Open Scanner to Link" and hold the MagicBand+ up to the top of your phone. Once detected, you'll be prompted to "Link MagicBand+ to Your Disney Account," so select "Link to Account." This linking process will connect the MagicBand+ to your Disney account, but won't link the band with any specific ticket until the next step.

    After linking the MagicBand+ to your Disney account, you'll be asked to "Assign Ticket or Magic Key Pass." At this step, you'll select your mother's theme park ticket and choose "Assign." That's it! Your mother will now be able to use her MagicBand+ to enter and enjoy the theme parks. Hocabeth, if you encounter any issues with the linking process, you can always reach out to the helpful Cast Members at the Tickets phone line for assistance.

    During your trip, don't miss all of the exciting offerings available for the Disney100 Celebration at Disneyland Resort! This exciting event celebrating 100 years of Disney wonder has transformed The Happiest Place on Earth with elaborate embellishments and dazzling decorations. Disney fans will love the Celebrating Disney100 at the Disneyland Resort Guided Tour, which includes reserved viewing of "Magic Happens" Parade and a special Disney character animation experience! Guests can book this tour up to 60 days in advance, so if it interests you, I encourage you to register as soon as possible.

    Hocabeth, I hope this information helps you plan for an enchanting visit to The Happiest Place on Earth. I'm wishing you and your mother a trip filled with magic and wonder! If you have any more questions before your vacation, please feel free to stop back by planDisney again anytime. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
