Ok - so there were some similar posts, here, a couple of years ago… I just need some confirmation that I’ve done this properly…
The story is, I bought tickets a couple years ago, and then didn’t use 2 of them. So, I’ve been holding onto them, expecting to get back to WDW. That time is coming!! But, of course, ticket options have changed since then… kids are older… life is different.
I thought I was holding onto 2 4-day tickets, so I bought 2 more, recently. Now I have 4 tickets. Yay! Well, I went to put them all into MDE tonight. Guess what? I have 2 3-day tickets and 2 4-day tickets. Ugh.
So here’s what I’m going to do. I’ll buy 2 MORE 4-day tickets. (How fortunate that I can just DO that!?) I’ll continue to hold onto the 3-day tickets, and some day, I’ll make DH go again. Maybe without the kids.
My question is this… now, in MDE, I’ve got 2 tickets linked that I absolutely don’t want to use. Since they don’t expire at the end of the year, it’s important that we use up the 4-day tickets first. How do I make sure that happens? I think what I’m going to do is add a new “friend” that’s meant to just hold the tickets. I can reassign those 3-day tickets at will, right? So transferring to-and-from this temporary friend should not be an issue. Right? (I’m nervous, obviously)
When we go, later this year, it’ll only use the tickets assigned to actual people, somehow? Based on names and hotel reservations and magic bands and stuff? How DOES that work?
Is there a way to “hide” that friend so I don’t accidentally assign it FP or something random?
