    Heading to Disneyland in August with a friend. We would like to purchase tickets individually on the Disney app on our individual phones but then link them for virtual cues and reservations. Is that possible? Thanks!

    Hey there Betsy!

    I'm so happy to welcome you to planDisney as you prepare for a magical visit to Disneyland Resort. I've had the chance to soak up the magic with friends there recently and it's a trip I'll never forget. Let's see if we can get you ready to enjoy all the excitement together this August.

    You can absolutely purchase your tickets individually in advance of your trip and then later link them to share a day of fun together. Tickets are available for purchase 120 days in advance so you are "just around the river bend" from making that purchase. Be sure you've each downloaded the Disneyland Mobile App and then access the feature menu (≡) at the bottom right of your screen. Once there, select "Tickets and Passes" at the top left to purchase your tickets. I love buying Park Hopper Tickets so I can visit both Disneyland Park and Disneyland California Adventure Park on the same day. If you decide to stick with one park per day, you'll be directed to select your desired park for your theme park reservation. Valid admission and a theme park reservation are both required for entry into the parks each day.

    Once you've both purchased your tickets, use the "Link Tickets & Passes" link to manually enter your friend's ticket ID Number or scan their ticket barcode. Once you're connected you'll be able to make Genie+ selections, purchase Individual Lightning Lanes, and join Virtual Queues together.

    As you make your travel plans don't forget to mark your calendars for dining reservations! You'll be able to make those 60 days in advance, subject to availability. I'd recommend a visit to Lamplight Lounge for some Lobster Nachos. This is one of my absolute favorite places to dine at Disneyland Resort, but don't worry if you aren't able to make an advance reservation. Same-day walk-up seating may also be available upstairs at Lamplight Lounge - Boardwalk Dining.

    I hope this helps Betsy! Feel free to stop back and see us again with any additional questions as you prepare for your trip.
