    can i book a lightening lane for my spouse if they have their own MDE acct

    Hey Howdy Hey Don and welcome to planDisney!

    One of the best parts about a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort is sharing the experience with your friends and family. This has been made so much easier with the advancement of the My Disney Experience account to allow a select few to make plans for the many so everyone can share as much of the vacation as intended. Thank you for stopping by with your question about booking Lightning Lane Entrances for your spouse. I will be happy to give you more information on how to do this so you can better prepare for your upcoming trip. Giddy up!

    In short, you can book a Lightning Lane for all of those in your traveling party from your My Disney Experience account. The first step is linking everyone together! Go to the "My Family & Friends" section of your My Disney Experience account. Check to see if your spouse and anyone else going on your vacation is listed in this area as Guests that share plans with you. If you did need to add your spouse, at the top you should see a blue button to "Add a Guest" which you can click on and follow the prompts to connect your spouse's account. 

    As long as you all are linked together, this should work perfectly during your visit. On the day of your park experience, you can purchase Genie+ on your My Disney Experience app. You will be prompted on which members of your traveling party you would like to purchase Genie+ for. Next, starting at 7 AM on the day of your visit to the park, you can start making your first Lightning Lane selection. You will be asked to select all of the members of the party you want to make the Lightning Lane for and you should have the option to choose your spouse. You should be all set from here to make your first selection. Your next opportunity for a Lightning Lane selection will be either 2 hours after the official opening of the park or after you redeem your first Lightning Lane selection. 

    I hope these steps helped to give you a better idea of what to do now to prepare as well as execute on the day of your visit. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
