    What is the best way to make fastpass reservations for 2 families that want to travel together during the day. We have 2 separate confirmation numbers.

    Hello Robin, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Extended family vacations are the best way to make those unforgettable family memories that everyone will cherish forever.

    I travel quite a bit with my large extended family. There are two of us that are in charge of making all the FastPass+ selections and the advanced dining reservations. So everything will go smoothly, we each make sure that everyone in our immediate family has their theme park admission tickets linked to their My Disney Experience accounts. We also make sure that every adult is connected with the two of us with “My Family and Friends List” in My Disney Experience. You may need to send invitations to any adults or children over age 13 that manage their own accounts to connect with you. Once they accept, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections for everyone by creating a FastPass+ party and then selecting the date, park, and experience you wish to reserve.

    Another cost savings is to share a purchased Memory Maker between your families. When family members accept your invitation to connect, they will need to also share “My PhotoPass Photos” with you. This will allow anyone in your family to upload a picture taken by one of Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers to your Memory Maker account by scanning their MagicBand. In the event that you decide to split up during your trip, you will not miss one of those magical photo memories. If you have more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
