    Can I link admission tickets purchased from a third party to my Magicband?

    Hi Kimberly!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I see your trip is just a few weeks away - how exciting!  Before you know it, you'll be walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A., and enjoying your favorite Mickey-shaped snack!

    Kimberly, I love using my MagicBand+ in the parks.  Whether you're tapping in at the entrance, accessing your Lightning Lane entrances, making food or merchandise purchases, or saving those priceless Disney PhotoPass moments, being hands-free in the park is a big advantage!  If you haven't yet linked your MagicBand+ to your My Disney Experience account, you'll want to make sure that is completed before visiting Walt Disney World Resort.  

    To link your tickets to your MagicBand+ or older MagicBands, you simply need to also link those tickets to the same My Disney Experience account.  In the My Disney Experience Mobile App, you can click on the three lines in the bottom right-hand corner and then select "My Tickets & Passes."  On the right side, choose "Link Tickets & Passes," then you'll be given options to scan a barcode or type the ID number provided with your tickets to link them.  The process is similar if you're completing via a web browser, but you'll find that you can get started by clicking on "My Plans" under your My Disney Experience account.  You can then assign tickets to others on your Family and Friends List if you're traveling with a group.  Once the tickets are linked and assigned to each person, they will be accessible with the MagicBands also linked to those same people.  

    Since you are within 60 days of your vacation, don't forget that you can be busy making those advanced dining reservations and booking any special add-ons from the Enchanting Extras Collection!  If you're planning to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios during your vacation, I'd recommend trying to grab a reservation for a Fantasmic! Dining Package.  Fantasmic! is my favorite nighttime spectacular and I love that with the dining package not only do I get a great meal, but also reserved seating for the show!  As a bonus, you can even use your Disney Dining Plan for this package if you have purchased that for your trip!  

    Kimberly, I hope this helps you to prepare for your upcoming vacation!  Please stop by and see us again here at planDisney with any other vacation planning questions in the future!
