    5 adults and one toddler. Do we buy tickets on one app? Or is it best to have each person have their own app cause the group will separate here and there as per toddlerOr is it you can buy the tickets together but each member can have access on own cell

    Hey, Howdy Hey, Brittany, and welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you’re planning the rootinest tootinest visit to the Disneyland Resort with you and your gang! As someone who often roams the parks with several adults and my little toddler cowboy, I understand the importance of having some solo time to explore before regrouping for meals, shows, and creating special memories together. So let's rustle up a plan for all y'all!

    In my opinion, it's easiest to purchase all the tickets together and make reservations as a group. But hey, I'm the type who enjoys being the planner-in-chief, you know? However, there's absolutely nothing wrong if each adult buys their own tickets. Afterward, you can link them all together using your individual mobile devices and the Disneyland Mobile App. Linking those theme park tickets is like having a lasso that keeps your cast of characters together whenever you visit the Happiest Place On Earth. And you know what, Brittany? My good friend and I have our Magic Keys linked together. That way, she can make theme park reservations for me if we’re ever feeling spontaneous and want to stop by the resort one afternoon (because I tend to forget sometimes!). Plus, we can take turns booking Lightning Lane return times and breeze through the turnstiles together when we reunite at the parks.

    Once you all have tickets and reservations, each adult can link their tickets to each other. From the app, spot the ☰ feature menu at the bottom right and select "Tickets and Passes" at the top left. From there, tap the "Link Tickets & Passes" button near the top of the screen. If you don't see it, tap the ‘+’ button in the upper-right corner. You can either scan another ticket using your phone's camera or manually enter the ticket ID. Once all your theme park tickets are linked, you can make Disney Genie+ reservations for your entire party and stay in sync! 

    Oh, and Brittany, don't forget to check out Panelist Tony S’s tips for linking tickets and enjoying Lightning Lane entrances. He's got some mighty fine advice!

    And here's a nifty tip for Disney's PhotoPass Service: Grab one PhotoPass card from the first photographer you meet. Instead of everyone handing over their phones to be scanned, link that card to each person's account. This way, one PhotoPass card can connect effortlessly to all your accounts. It's a great alternative to slowing things down by scanning every phone.

    Well, Brittany, I hope this answers your question about linking your theme park tickets. If you have more questions or need more tips or suggestions for your trip, just keep those questions a-comin’! Now that you’ve got a friend in me, I’d love to help however I can.

    Happy Trails!
