If I buy tickets for someone as a gift do they need to be linked to my family and friends for me to assign the tickets or will there be some sort of confirmation number that I give them so they can link the tickets to their own accounts?
On the WDW website, they're available. However, you'll save about $50/ticket or more, buying from an authorized reseller. The touringplans ticket finder tool is a nice way to compare the pricing and find the best deal. https://touringplans.com/walt-disney-world/ticket-calculator
