    If I have a group of 3 people and I purchase the park tickets for all 3 people myself, can I link all 12 of those individual tickets to my magic band and scan for all 3 people to get entry into the parks or will each person have to present their tickets?

    Hi Bradley, welcome to planDisney!

    Donald has The Three Caballeros. Merryweather is one of the three good fairies in Sleeping Beauty. You're part of a magical Disney trio, too, and I appreciate the work you're doing to efficiently execute your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    Each person in your party requires valid admission, a theme park reservation for each park day, and a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card) to enter a theme park. Tickets are first linked to individuals in My Disney Experience. A person can either have their own My Disney Experience account or an account profile managed by another account. Individuals with their own My Disney Experience accounts can plan together as long as they are connected as Family & Friends.

    Once your tickets are linked, it's time to make a theme park reservation for each park day. You can make a theme park reservation for anyone that appears on your Family & Friends List with valid admission linked to their account or account profile. If you have tickets with the Park Hopper Option, you only need to make a theme park reservation for the first park you plan on entering each day. 

    Your method of entry is the item you will use to gain entry at theme park and Lightning Lane entrances. You tap into the magic by holding your MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card up to a touchpoint. MagicBands are linked to individuals in My Disney Experience and can only be used to access vacation entitlements (tickets, reservations, etc) for that individual. My children's tickets, for example, are not connected to my MagicBand because they have separate My Disney Experience account profiles managed by my account.

    Disney MagicMobile passes can be downloaded via the My Disney Experience mobile app to eligible iPhones, Apple Watches, and Google Pay-enabled Android phones (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Disney MagicMobile). You can download a Disney MagicMobile pass for anyone whose My Disney Experience account profile you manage. Like MagicBands, one Disney MagicMobile pass connects to all vacation entitlements linked to an individual account or account profile. I downloaded a Disney MagicMobile pass for myself and my two children. When I use my phone to tap in at park entry, my pass pops up automagically because Express Mode is turned on; I then scroll to tap my children's passes. My husband has his own My Disney Experience account, which means he's the only one that can download his Disney MagicMobile pass. If I want to scan in for all four of us, he can share his pass with me by clicking "Select Passes to Share," which is currently only available for iPhone users.

    Admission cards can be obtained at any Walt Disney World park ticket window. Current designs feature bold backgrounds and beloved Disney characters. Be prepared to show your ticket confirmation email, the payment method, and a valid photo ID.

    I hope this information helps you prepare for your first park day, Bradley. We covered a lot of ground today, please don't hesitate to reach out with any follow-up questions.
