    I will be buying the tickets for my entire family of 9. Will I be able to add them all to my account with their respective names and different ticket lengths since I will be making all the plans? Can i get cards for them BEFORE we go to parks?

    Hi Ashley,
    Welcome to planDisney. The job requirements for planning your family's upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation include an adventurer's heart, dreamer's wings, and a My Disney Experience account. Consider yourself hired, so let's get to work!

    When purchasing tickets on the Walt Disney World Resort website, you will be asked to assign each ticket to an individual Guest. Individuals you are connected to as Family and Friends in your My Disney Experience account will automagically appear in the drop-down menu as options. If you are inputting information for a new Guest, select "Add a New Guest" from the drop-down menu and enter their first name, last name, and age. By default, this means that Guests' plans will be managed by you. If at any time an individual in your party wishes to create their own My Disney Experience account, you can link their existing profile (managed by you) to their newly created account (created by them) in My Disney Experience via the Walt Disney World website or My Disney Experience mobile app. Anyone over age 13 is eligible to have their own My Disney Experience account, but who has and does not have one is completely up to personal preference. My husband is in charge of Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering in the parks, so he has his own account. My parents prefer for me to handle all of the planning and logistics on our trips, so I manage their profiles.

    Once you've assigned the tickets in your cart to individual Guests, Ashley, you will be asked for ticket delivery information. Click "See more delivery options" to view the following options for delivery: email, U.S. Domestic Standard shipping (no charge), U.S. Domestic Express, or International Express. If you would like to receive admission cards in the mail, choose your desired non-email option. Mickey mail is my favorite kind of mail to receive.

    Once you've purchased tickets, you'll be able to make park pass reservations, which are required for theme park entry. Having everyone in your party linked to your My Disney Experience account will allow you to select the nine members of your family during the first step of this reservation process. You'll experience a similarly streamlined process when making dining reservations, purchasing Disney Genie+ service, or making Lightning Lane selections in the My Disney Experience app. 

    You are not alone on this planning journey, Ashley. Please reach out to planDisney with any other trip planning questions before, during, or after your vacation.

    Choose magic,
