    I made a reservation with room and tickets and then discovered I had some transferable tickets so switched to a room only. When I go to purchase tickets it says they will be paper. Can I get magic bands/fast pass if they are linked to a reservation?

    Hi Cheryl,

    I am happy to help you think about how to best connect all of the components of your Walt Disney World vacation. I was recently able to connect some older Walt Disney World tickets in my My Disney Experience account, and it worked very well. My family is now all set up for our next Walt Disney World vacation! Let me offer you some thoughts on your situation.

    I believe that the answer to your question is yes, and here is how I think that it should work. First, be sure that you have a My Disney Experience account set up. Next, be sure that you link your resort reservation in your My Disney Experience account. Be sure to be are logged into your My Disney Experience account when you purchase your Disney theme park tickets. This should help you to get them linked to your My Disney Experience account. If not, try following the instructions in My Disney Experience to link your tickets. I also believe that your My Disney Experience account should offer you the ability to customize MagicBands for the guests in your party. Also, because you have a Walt Disney World resort hotel reservation, you should be able to make Disney FastPass+ selections at 60 days before your check-in date.

    If you run into trouble with any of this, I suggest that you call the internet help desk at 407-939-7765. They will be able to speak with you about your specific situation and provide you with any additional assistance that you need.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Cheryl. Please do let us know if you have any further planning questions as you get ready for your magical vacation!
