    I planned my vacation through a third party and can not figure out how to link those reservations with the Disney site in order to get magic bands and make other meal reservations and such?

    Hi Amy!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. This is a great question because I know a lot of Guests have difficulty when booking with a third party!

    If you haven't already done so, the first thing you are going to want to do is create and login to your My Disney Experience account. This will be your one stop shop for planning your vacation! You should also download the My Disney Experience mobile app so you'll have all your information at your fingertips while on vacation. From here you'll be able to plan your dining reservations, review your hotel and tickets that you've booked, plan your FastPass+ reservations and so much more!

    To get your current reservation into your account you will need to link it to your account based on the confirmation number and the last name on the reservation. Please be aware that a majority of the time when you book through a third party, the confirmation number they give is for their internal tracking and is not the Disney confirmation number. So if you booked through a source like Expedia, the number that is in your confirmation email is for Expedia's systems, not Disney's. To get the Disney confirmation number you'll need to contact Expedia's customer service and ask for it specifically. It should be relatively easy for them to provide it for you. You may have luck with Disney being able to locate your reservation if you call 407-934-7639, but I have had some difficulties in the past so I recommend contacting them first!

    I hope you have a magical trip and please let us know if you have any other questions!
