Mom and Dad planning vacation

    I purchased an annual pass that I want to redeem in 2017. I have an old hopper + ticket I want to use later this month, will my fast pass picks transfer to my hopper ticket if that is what I use for admission? Can guest services link pass to my magic band?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, James!

    I was in a similar situation when I visited Walt Disney World on a multi-day Theme Park Ticket with the Park Hopper option but also had a not-yet activated Annual Pass. Great question!

    In short, when you enter a Walt Disney World park, ask which ticket was used for entry. If the Cast Member there at the entrance cannot answer that question, you will either be directed to a CM with a hand-held device who can scan your MagicBand/ticket to see which ticket was used or, of course, you can head to Guest Services. In theory, My Disney Experience is set to prioritize tickets, so that if you have a multi-day ticket AND an Annual Pass that has not yet been activated, the multi-day ticket should take precedence. Similarly, if you have an Annual Pass that is activated AND you have a multi-day ticket, if you enter a park on a day that your AP is valid (not a blackout day, for example), your AP will be prioritized, and the multi-day ticket will remain untouched.

    Regarding FastPass+ plans, those are connected to your My Disney Experience account, so the ticket that you use to enter a park should also enable you to follow your FP+ plans.

    You should be able to link your Annual Pass AND your multi-day ticket to your My Disney Experience account prior to arrival. Once linked, your MagicBand will enable you to access everything associated with that account, including dining reservations, park tickets, PhotoPass photos, FP+ Plans and so much more. If you experience any trouble or would prefer assistance, any Cast Member at Guest Services (in all four parks and at Disney Springs) would be happy to assist you!

    Send more questions as you think of them, James; we love to help!
