    My wife and I are going to be arriving a different day than the other 2 members of our party staying in the same room. They are arriving 4 days after us. What is the best way to book the room and buy park tickets so they can sync magic bands etc.?

    Hello, Christopher, and welcome back to planDisney!

    Booking a stay at Walt Disney World Resort is the best way to visit this magical destination! You are welcome to book your Disney Resorts Collection Guest Room now by calling Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Reservations or wait a little longer to book a vacation package using your Disney account. When you book, do so for all who will be in your travel party staying in your Guest Room regardless of their arrival date to ensure they are on the reservation. Whether you book a Disney Resort hotel Guest Room-only and then include theme park tickets as a separate purchase, or whether you book a vacation package, please ensure you link all your reservations to your My Disney Experience account, and download the My Disney Experience App to manage your plans before and during your visit.

    If you book a Disney Resort hotel Guest Room only, you can modify that reservation later to add Guests and theme park tickets online. If you wait to book a vacation package, it's all so much easier and adding tickets for purchase will be offered during the process of your booking, please include all in your travel party. Once your theme park tickets are purchased make your Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations for each day of your valid theme park admission for all in your travel party. 

    Arranging MagicBand orders and purchases at pre-arrival prices can be done through your My Disney Experience account online for all in your party at the same time, regardless of the arrival of your last two Guests, but make sure that you purchase your MagicBands up to 10 days before arrival, and even sooner if you wish. When the MagicBands arrive, please give the two personalized MagicBands to those who will be joining you later, as your friends will need those MagicBands to enter the Guest Room, they will be able to access their theme park tickets and they will have charging privileges - you can arrange for different payment methods for each Guest at the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel.

    I hope this information is helpful, Christopher, please stop by planDisney for any further planning questions you may have - thank you!
