    I saw answers for Disneyland, but I don't know if applies to Disney WORLD. My question: does the name on my pass have to match my ID? I'd rather use my preferred name for my Disney Vacation, but I understand if it's different in FL than CA

    Hiya Sky!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad you stopped by to ask us this magical question and that you are planning on visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. There is truly no better time to visit than during the World's Most Magical Celebration, so I do hope you will be able to experience the EARidescent magic before it ends in the spring of 2023.

    Now, let's talk about the name on your theme park tickets or Annual Pass. After talking to a Cast Member, I was advised that the name on your ticket or the name used when checking out should match the one on your ID. Indeed, if you ever need to get your ticket from a Vacation Planning window, or if you want to use your Annual Pass to get special rates or to receive your complimentary magnet, you will need to provide a piece of ID at those times. Therefore, for those purposes, it is preferable to make sure that your ticket's name matches the one on your ID. As for your My Disney Experience account, however, I was assured that the name in your profile would not affect this process. Therefore, you can still use your preferred name on your My Disney Experience profile, where your ticket or Annual Pass will be linked.

    Speaking of using your theme park tickets, did you see the brand new addition to the MagicBand family that came out recently? The brand new MagicBand+ is a new, exciting tool that still includes all the original features of previous MagicBands, but with brand new interactive activities that will revolutionize the way you enjoy the theme parks. Indeed, you will be able to collect and interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection, or become a bounty hunter at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, just like the Mandalorian! MagicBand+ also gives you a unique way to enjoy the nighttime spectaculars Disney Enchantment and Harmonious. Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels can purchase their MagicBand+ devices at reduced rates, but they are also available online on shopDisney or in person at select merchandise locations.

    I hope this was helpful, Sky, and that you will have the best day ever on your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any other questions or need suggestions to enjoy the theme parks as an Annual Passholder, please don't hesitate to reach back out. You and me, we're in a club now!

    Have a magical day,
