When you buy the tickets, did you have to give specific names/do you need to collect them with ID?

I am going to buy tickets for my 3 nieces (12-18) but also will buy for some adults to go with them. Which adults, I am not sure yet, hence my question.
thanks!
Yes - name attached to ticket!

Yes, the names go on the tickets. Ours were linked to MDE/magic bands. We scanned in at the gate with our bands then gave our printed paper ticket (one barcode, all names) to get our party wristbands. We weren't asked for ID or any other info.

I think your issue might be booking it in one name and if a different person wants to attend, if it's linked to a magic band you wouldn't be able to use the other persons band with the fingerprint scanner.

I'm not sure how it works if you dont link them to MDE/magic bands. They might ask for ID in that case. You could just hold off booking the tickets until you're sure who wants to attend. We went Oct 29th and it didn't sell out until very close to that date or possibly even on the day.

MNSSHP was a great event, we really enjoyed it. We got to use 3 FP+ before the party officially started, did lots of rides, no character meets (dd's are past that now), parade, hocus pocus show & fireworks. And also came away with about 5kg of candy

Thanks all for the replies.

One final question - we are doing split stay 5 nights onsite, then at a villa. I was trying to work out whether it would be better to do it while we are onsite (presumably the buses still run back to the resort hotels?), and would welcome any experiences of the logistics of either attending when onsite or offsite.

I have purchased MNSSHP and After Hours tickets directly from Disney and in that case I have had to name who it is for at the time of purchase. I am currently holding a couple of After Hours tickets and there is an option to reassign to other members of the party. I don't recall if the MNSSHP were the same.

Somebody (another dibber) gifted me a ticket to MNSSHP this year, they had purchased through a third party and obviously had not needed to give a name at the time of purchase. I simply attached the ticket to my account. Maybe you could do this and then link the ticket to a person when you know who is going.

I always stay onsite without a car, no problem getting Disney transport back.
