    My friend surprised me with Disneyland Tickets for my birthday, but didn’t pick a reservation yet and bought them under her Disney account. Is there a way to get them onto my account?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Emma. Thanks for bringing this fantastic question to us. Ahhh! I can't tell you how much I love this surprise from your friend. It's going to be such a fun and special day for both of you.

    Any day at the Disneyland Resort is magical, but being there for your birthday is something I think everyone should experience at least once. Your friend sounds like an absolute gem and linking your ticket to your Disney account will be a cinch. Open the Disneyland app and tap on the "☰" to open the menu. Next, tap the tile for "Tickets and Passes" followed by the "+" in the upper right corner. Finally, you will tap "Link Tickets & Passes" and can manually type the ticket ID number or use the "Camera" feature to scan the barcode and add the ticket to your account. That's it - it's as easy as Fairy Godmother waving her magic wand and saying "bibbidi-bobbidi-boo."

    Now let's talk about your theme park reservation. If your friend purchased the tickets at the Disneyland site, they would have been prompted to select a visit date which then creates a theme park reservation. Not to worry though, you can easily modify your theme park reservations to your desired visit date. 

    Now that your tickets and reservations are settled, you can start thinking about all of the fun you will have on your special day. Make sure to stop by City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A. for a complimentary birthday button. It's so fun to wear this and have Cast Members wish you a "Happy birthday!" throughout your day. And the icing on the (birthday) cake, it looks like you will be visiting during Halloween Time at the resort. It's one of my favorite times to visit to enjoy all of the beautiful fall adornments around the resort. Make sure to stop by and snap a photo with the iconic giant Mickey pumpkin and enjoy all of the spooktacular seasonal treats. No matter what you decide to do, I know it's going to be magical.

    Emma, I hope this helps take care of your ticket for your upcoming visit. Please come back to share any other questions that we can help with. Until then, I'm wishing you a wonderful birthday visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
