    My family has two separate reservations. I want to purchase tickets for the Christmas party for everyone. Can I do that even though we have separate reservations? If so, how are the tickets linked to everyone's My Disney Experience app?

    Hiya, Ester! Welcome to planDisney. I love that you stopped by asking about going with your whole family to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    The key to buying tickets for family members is making sure your MyDisney accounts are all connected as Family & Friends. You can connect your accounts online or with the My Disney Experience app.

    On the app:

    1. Open the menu (the "≡" at the bottom of the screen)
    2. Scroll to "Account" and select "Profile"
    3. On the Profile screen, select the "Family & Friends List" tab
    4. Select "+ Add a Guest"
    5. Follow the prompts to add your family members with their name and e-mail or linking code
    6. If you add them with their name and email, they will need to accept your invitation through their email account
    7. If you add by linking code, they can find their code by going to the "Profile" screen on their app and selecting "Show My Linking Code"

    Once you are all connected and have purchased tickets for the most magical Christmas party, you can assign the tickets to your family members.

    To do this:

    1. Go to menu page (the"≡")
    2. Select the first tile, "My Tickets & Passes"
    3. Scroll right to left for the ticket you want to share to appear on the screen
    4. Click on "Reassign Ticket"
    5. Select the Guest from your Family & Friends list

    With that, you should all be set to use your MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile or tickets you can pick up at Guest Relations at a Walt Disney World Resort theme park to enjoy the party.

    If you are headed to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, the party starts at 7 pm, and you can enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4 pm. Disney Jollywood Nights at Disney's Hollywood Studios begins at 7:30 pm, and you start enjoying the theme park at 6 pm.

    Ester, I hope this information is easy to follow and helps you get ready for the party. Bibbidi Bobiddi Boo! Please come back to planDisney if you have any other questions as you plan for your magical vacation.

    A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes!
