The New Complimentary Tickets

Hi everybody! I just joined to ask a few questions to my fellow Disney fanatics.
My sister is currently working at Disney World and my family is planning on visiting in June. The problem is her main gates are blocked at the Magic Kingdom and she has one complimentary ticket left. We're hoping she'll be able to find a few comp tickets from her friends, as we really can't afford the tickets to enter the park. I have a few questions that are unanswered about these comp tickets. I've tried to do my own research, but due to the new MagicBands most of the information online is outdated.

1. How do the complimentary tickets work with this new Magic system?
2. Are the complimentary tickets particular to the employee they're issued to? What I mean by that is, if she does receive a few comp tickets from friends, will her friends need to be present for us to get admitted?

Thanks DISboard. I can't wait to get to know you all, and I apologize if this is actually in the wrong section.

Well, we had those tickets the first time we ever went and only one time out of 4 did we have someone go with us. Another time, we had someone just walk us thru the international gateway,

I hope it's still like that! Was this before or after the Magic Bands?

None of the cm tickets can be used for FP+ before arriving at the park that day at least at the moment.

That makes sense. Thank you for your help.

This is what I am hearing as well, from CMs here on the boards. I have 2 1 day park hoppers coming from a CM friend. They expire on June 8, which is perfect for us. My dd has an expiring 7 day ph, but we added two days to our stay. So, I figure that I will be able to make FP+ choices for her, as a resort guest, as we normally would. Then, I will have her use the CM passes each day, for the first two days of our stay. Hopefully that will work out.
