    Me and my boyfriend are going to Disney world next year and I was wondering if we both needed "My Disney Experience" accounts or if I can make all selection for fast pass+, memory maker etc. on my account alone?

    Hi, Alexandra!

    This is an excellent question, so I'll be sure to give you suggestions that will enable you to choose what's right for you and your boyfriend.

    Depending on how you like to travel, you can easily be happy with creating one My Disney Experience account or with each of you having your own MDE account.

    When my family travels to Walt Disney World, my husband does not want to be bothered with details such as planning, since he knows that I've taken care of all of that already. As such, I'll make all of the plans and give my family and friends the ability to see our plans, but not the ability to change them.

    If, on the other hand, you are traveling with someone who likes to make plans as well, it it possible for each of you to have your own My Disney Experience account, and for you to give each other access to view plans via Friends & Family designation. This works perfectly when I am traveling to Walt Disney World with someone who has his or her own MDE account for regular family trips, but we happen to be visiting Walt Disney World together for just one trip. If that's the case for you, set up a MDE account for each of you and send your boyfriend an invitation to become a Friend & Family member. You'll each be able to see plans and, if set up appropriately, can each make changes to your plans, too.

    Have a fantastic trip to Walt Disney World, Alexandra! Be sure to send us questions as you think of them; we love to help!
