    I have a reservation & just received my Magic Bands. My dad order our tickets and received Exchange Certificates in the mail. Can I use those to link or do I need to wait to get the resort and pick up the actual tickets?

    Hi Christina! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you are right in the thick of planning your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! What an exciting time!

    While I am not 100% sure on the actual tickets that your family purchased, it sounds to me like Annual Passes were purchased. It has been my experience that when purchasing an Annual Pass and you have received your Exchange Certificate you will need to “exchange” or activate these once you arrive to the Walt Disney World Resort. I also have heard that you can use the number on the voucher to enter into My Disney Experience so that you can make your FastPass+ selection in advance. You will need to take your Exchange Certificates to any of the Guest Relations locations at any of the four theme parks or to the Downtown Disney area for activation.

    If your family did purchase annual passes, I think that this is a great program with a lot of perks. Make it a point to read up on the Passholder Program for all of the info!

    I hope I have helped to answer your question! Please let me know if I can help you in any other way!
    I hope you and your family have the vacation of a lifetime!
