    If I buy tickets through my work discount can I still link these to our magic bands? Also can I purchase the magic maker pictures if I buy third party Disney World tickets? Will I also be able to set up my fast passes online? Thank you for your help.

    Hi, Christine! There are many companies that offer their employees great perks, such as discounted theme park tickets through authorized retailers. My company does this and I have to say it is a really great offer! You are more than welcome to take advantage of this perk for your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. In my experience, the retailer my company uses gives the purchaser a receipt with a confirmation number and also mails tickets to their home. Either the confirmation number or the numbers on the back of the theme park tickets can be used to link each one to your My Disney Experience account. When the tickets are linked properly, you can use any MagicBand assigned to you to enter the theme parks. If you have any trouble linking the tickets, please contact the Existing Tickets department of Guest Services.

    Once you have the tickets assigned to each guest in your party, you will be all set to make FastPass+ selections at the appropriate time. If you are staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels, then you can make these selections up to 60 days in advance of your check-in. If you are not staying on property, then you can make your selections up to 30 days in advance of each day you plan to visit the theme parks.

    Finally, you can definitely enjoy Memory Maker no matter how you purchase your theme park tickets. Be sure you are signed in to your My Disney Experience account when you purchase this magical addition, so the Disney PhotoPass photographer can simply scan your MagicBand and your memories will be automagically stored in your account.

    I hope this information helps you plan your upcoming visit. Please let us know if you have any further questions!
