    Hi, We have been gifted tickets to Disney by a family member in Florida. How does the process work? I have made Disney Resort reservations and I am expecting magic bands in the mail.

    Hi Sheila,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! What a fabulous gift and a sweet family member!

    If you have not done so already, you will need to create a My Disney Experience Account. In that account, you need to link your resort hotel reservation by clicking on My Reservations and Tickets and then Link Resort Reservation. Then, add everyone in your party to your account through the My Family & Friends List. Once you add them, you will need to link your theme park tickets and assign each ticket to a person in your party. To link tickets, go to My Reservations and Tickets, and then click on Link Tickets. Finally, once you get your MagicBands, you need to link those in My Disney Experience also. Just click on MagicBands and Cards and then click on Link.

    Once you have everybody added in your My Family & Friends List and all theme park tickets linked, you can make Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance! Make those Fast Pass+ selections now if your trip is coming up soon. With Fast Pass+, in advance of your trip, you can reserve ride times for up to three rides per day for days that you have valid theme park admission. Once you are in the parks and have used those Fast Pass+ selections and/or the ride time windows have expired, you can make another Fast Pass+ selection using the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    Sheila, enjoy those tickets! I trust you will have a fabulous time!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
