    I am planning a Disney Vacation. We are looking at staying on a Disney property. However, I can get a better deal through my employer for our actual park tickets. Will I still be able to link those tickets to my Disney account and Magic Bands?

    Hello Nicole!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When booking Walt Disney World Resort vacations or purchasing Theme Park Tickets through Disney directly, your My Disney Experience App is updated directly within 24 hours.  Any tickets purchased or Walt Disney World Resort reservations made beyond Disney directly can be manually linked to the My Disney Experience App if you have official information in the form of a confirmation number or ID Number.  You just have to be sure that the tickets you purchase are official and accepted by Walt Disney World Resort.

    My employer participates in a program that allows my family to purchase discounted tickets and occasionally offers special deals at Walt Disney World Resort.  When I purchased the tickets, I was sent a receipt with a confirmation code and ID numbers for each ticket purchased.  By signing into the My Disney Experience App, I simply linked my tickets using the ID number under the "My Reservations and Tickets" Tab.  After that, I had to individually assign the tickets to the members of my party in the My Family & Friends List.

    Immediately after the tickets had be linked and assigned, I was able to book FastPass+ selections (we were within the 60-day window for selections) for my family's vacation.  We also used MagicBands that we had received during a previous vacation for our arrival at Disney's Magical Express as we are Canadian and did not have our new MagicBands shipped to our home before our trip.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
