    Hi! With 2021 ticket sales fast approaching on June 28th, what would be an easy checklist of steps to smoothly go from purchase to park reservations (link to account, link to magic band, etc....)? Thank you so much for your advice!

    Hi Wayne!

    We are delighted that you stopped by to ask a question at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Well now, I love myself a checklist, especially when it comes to planning a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! Here is what I suggest:

    *First, make sure you have a My Disney Experience account.
    *Second, make sure that everyone traveling with you is linked in your My Family & Friends List. 
    *Third, log into My Disney Experience before purchasing your tickets.
    *Fourth, make sure that your tickets are linked in My Disney Experience. If they are not linked after you purchase them, link them and assign to each member of your party.

    Once you have all tickets linked and assigned, take a few minutes to celebrate and then get to work making reservations through the Disney Park Pass system. It might be helpful to check the park availability calendar before you go in to make park pass reservations. Although I just made park pass reservations for several different trips, I did have to start over a few times to be able select a park. So, if you are unable to make a reservation, I suggest that you keep trying a few times before trying to contact website support at 407-939-7917.

    When you order your MagicBands through your My Disney Experience account, those MagicBands may automatically link to your account. If they do not, you can link them. Once your tickets and MagicBands are linked, you are ready to return to a world of magic in the parks! 

    Wayne, if you have not done so already, be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Keep an eye on all operational updates, attractions and entertainment information, and the Know Before You Go hub. As we try to make sure we are ready for our upcoming trip, I feel a little like Frozone frantically searching for my Supersuit. Sending lots of pixie dust your way trusting that you will have an Incredible next Disney Day!

    Magic and Memories,
