    I already have a child account created from a previous Disney trip and they are now old enough to have their own devices. How can I merge or migrate this previous account now that they are older, or should we just start over with new accounts for them?

    Hiya Dan!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! Wow, Dan, your magical vacation is coming so soon! How excited are you? You picked such a magical time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, and I cannot wait for you to experience all the seasonal offerings available at that time of year.

    The My Disney Experience service is, in my opinion, essential when planning your Disney vacation, and I always recommend that all eligible Guests create their own account. To merge the two accounts, I would recommend reaching out to a Cast Member via chat, email or phone, as they will be able to merge the two accounts for you. This would be especially helpful if you already have reservations linked to that profile!

    Once your child has created their new account, don't forget to add them to your Family & Friends List! To do so, log into your account's Family & Friend List and click on "Add a Guest" at the bottom of your list. Then, you will still have to enter her information, but be sure to click on "Invite this Guest to connect" and enter the email associated with their new account. Once they have accepted your invitation, they will appear in your Family & Friends List, and you will be able to add them to your plans. You could even reassign your existing reservations to that profile, though I recommend asking a Cast Member for assistance to avoid confusion.

    I hope this was helpful, Dan, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your trip, please don't hesitate to reach back out. You've got a friend in us here at planDisney!

    Have a magical day,
