    Hi Gail,

    Thank you for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. A January vacation sounds like an excellent idea to escape the northeast cold.

    When you purchase Theme Park Tickets separately, you definitely want to add them to your My Disney Experience account at least 30 days in advance, in order to book FastPass+ reservations. Just visit the Link Your Reservations and Purchases page to get started. There you can enter the Theme Park Ticket number, or Will Call Confirmation number.

    If you purchased a MagicBand, you can also add it to your My Disney Experience account via the link above. But if you have one from a previous trip, you can definitely use it. Old ones will already be linked to your account. So just wear your MagicBand and head straight to the Theme Park. If the case of Will Call, a Cast Member will validate your Tickets on the spot, but be sure to have a copy of the Will Call Confirmation email and Photo ID. If you do not have any MagicBands, you will need to pick up your Tickets at Guest Relations at the entrance of any of the Theme Parks or Disney Springs.

    One last tip: be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to help you manage your day. Happy planning!
