    We are annual pass holders, my daughter is going with a friend next month. If I give the other parent my daughters barcode info to link her pass for entrance access. Will that mean they can access access all our passes? Or can it be a one day use only

    Hello My-Trinh!

    I'm happy to meet you, welcome to planDisney! How fun that your daughter gets to spend a day at Disneyland Resort with a friend, I'm sure they are so excited! 

    You can allow someone to link your Magic Key to their account on the Disneyland Mobile App very easily. In the app just go to "Tickets and Passes" and have the friend's parent select "Link Tickets & Passes" while you open up your own app and get to your daughter's Magic Key barcode. Your friend will need to select "Open Camera" and then scan your daughter's pass. If your daughter uses a MagicBand+ they could also link her ticket by tapping her band in that same section of the app.

    Linking tickets is done one at a time, so they will only have access to your daughter's ticket (as long as they don't scan any of your other passes). Linking her ticket to their account lets them include her on any Disney Genie+ purchases, Lightning Lanes, and Virtual Queues that they might join. But I totally understand not wanting that to be permanent! When the day of fun is over they can go into their app under "Tickets and Passes" and select your daughter's Magic Key to remove from their account. It won't unlink automatically, but it's quick and easy for them to remove it after their visit!

    Make sure you remind your daughter that attraction photo downloads are currently complimentary at the parks so that she and her friend can remember their day together! Ride photos are some of my favorite souvenirs from trips with my friends!

    My-Trinh, I know your daughter is in for a truly magical day! I'm wishing her blue skies and sunshine...and lots of Disneyland popcorn! I love planning with fellow Magic Key holders, so please hurry back if you have more questions!

    Keep moving forward!
