    I need to buy park tickets for my upcoming Walt Disney World trip. What is the best way to purchase tickets and link the to my vacation, travel party and magic bands.

    Matthew, thank you for coming to planDisney with your question! Buying theme park tickets and linking them to your travel party and MagicBand/MagicBand+ is another step closer to your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, how exciting! 

    Here is what I suggest:
    1. Create a Disney Account
    2. Add the guests in your party to your Family & Friend List
    3. Purchase your Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets

    Once you decide which tickets work best for your vacation plans (1 Park Per Day, Park Hopper Option, or Park Hopper Plus Option, or Water Park and Sports Option) and the quantity you need for your party, you will be taken to a check-out screen. Here you will be able to assign guests to specific tickets being purchased. If you have already paired a MagicBand/MagicBand+ to each guest when adding them to your Family & Friends list, the tickets will automatically be linked upon purchase. If you need to add the MagicBand/MagicBand+ after you have purchased the tickets, simply head back to the Walt Disney World website, hover over MyDisneyExperience, and select My MagicBands and Cards. Here you will be able to link tickets to MagicBands for all guests you are managing through your Family & Friends list.

    Matthew, if you are having any issues at all with linking your tickets to your MagicBand/MagicBand+, you can find more information in the Bands and Cards section of Disney’s Frequently Asked Questions, come back to planDisney to ask me directly, or you can speak to a Cast Member upon arrival at your resort or a Guest Relations location at the entry point of all theme parks.

    I hope this helps and I hope you have a fantastic visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
