    We purchased a hotel package with park tickets and already made our reservations. Is it true that the tickets won’t show up in the purchaser’s (my MIL) account until just days prior? I want to help link up all our tickets and hotel keys in advance.

    Hello again, Whitney. Thanks for sharing another great question with us at planDisney. This is going to be the best visit to the Disneyland Resort ever! You will soon get to reap the benefits of all of your planning and thoughtfulness in just a couple of short months.

    Hooray for purchasing a Disneyland Vacation Package! If you are staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, make sure to take advantage of the Early Entry benefit that allows you to enjoy the parks 30 minutes before the official opening time. A couple of my favorite attractions to enjoy during this time are Peter Pan's Flight and Alice in Wonderland - both in Fantasyland. The lines for both of these attractions can get pretty long during the day so I like to beat the crowds and ride during early entry.

    You are indeed correct that the theme park tickets that are part of your vacation package will be sent via email four days prior to your arrival date. Not to worry, linking tickets is super quick and easy. You will open the Disneyland app and tap on the "☰" icon in the lower right to open the menu. Next, tap on the "Tickets and Passes" tile followed by the "+" in the upper right and then "Link Tickets & Passes." You can then manually enter the ticket ID numbers or scan each of the barcodes using the "Camera" option. Now you're good to go for the safekeeping of everyone's tickets. Having linked tickets is also super helpful if you're planning on using Disney Genie+ Service during your visit. You'll be able to make Lightning Lane selections for the entire group. 

    I'm so excited about your visit during Halloween Time. We talked about the nighttime shows, but there's so much more to experience throughout the resort. There will be seasonal eats (keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog for updates there), characters will don their ghoulish get-ups and the Haunted Mansion will have its holiday overlay where you see what Jack Skellington and friends have been up to. My must-do during this time of the year is visiting "Radiator Screams" at Disney California Adventure Park. The residents really go all out with their Haul-O-Ween decorations.

    I also think that all of this super planning deserves some recognition. I highly encourage you to stop by City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A. for a complimentary "I'm Celebrating:" button. You can ask the Cast Member to fill in the blank with "My magical planning" or anything else that your heart desires.

    Whitney, I hope this helps put your mind at ease as you continue planning for your upcoming visit. Come back to visit us with anything else you might want to ask. Until then, happy planning and happy haunting!
