    Hi, I am buying tickets for my family of 4. I have scanned in my ticket and my children's. Is it best for my husband to scan his own ticket on his phone and reserve for himself, or can the tickets be on both phones?

    Welcome to planDisney, Ann Marie! We are so happy to have you drop by with your question and it's a good one! Let's get you an answer. 

    There actually is no right or wrong answer to your question. This is totally up to the preference of your family. You can add your husband's ticket to your account, have him add it to his own account, or do both! Tickets can be added to more than one account without any issue. I'll also say that you can be signed onto your account with more than one phone without issue too. So it really is up to you, but I would love to share how my family does it!

    Our family chooses to use one Disney account and we just link all of our tickets to this account as a family of five. I actually even have our friend's tickets linked to our account since we go to the parks often together. When my family is in the parks together, my husband, my two teens, and I are all logged into the same account in the Disneyland app and there isn't an issue. We prefer this because it makes it a lot easier to make future theme park ticket reservations, book the next Lightning Lane when we use Disney Genie+, and mobile order our snacks and meals. It never fails that between us adults, picky eaters, and a vegetarian, we never agree on a quick-service dining option. This is why we love to mobile order. We can easily order something for everyone from multiple locations and then because we all logged in on the same Disney account in the app, we can divide and conquer to pick up our orders. This is so much easier than when mom or dad is stuck going from place to place standing in line for everyone's meals and then everyone is done by the time you have your meal. 

    Of course, your husband could always create his own Disney account as well to link his ticket or all of yours if he really wanted his own account. I just don't really see a benefit to having separate accounts in my opinion other than preference. 

    Ann Marie, I hope my sharing our experience with tickets and accounts helps you decide what will work best for your family. If you have any other questions, be sure to stop by again!
