    I cannot add my family's MagicMobile cards to my Google wallet. They are in my Family and Friends list and have MagicMobile cards in their own Google wallet. But in my app only my name is in the dropdown for 'Create a pass for these guests'.

    Hi Charlotte,

    I can tell I'm speaking to someone who knows how to plan a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You are clearly fluent in My Disney Experience with references to Family & Friends and Disney MagicMobile, so let's get technical.

    Three methods of entry allow you to tap into magic at theme park entry, Lightning Lane entrances, and with Disney PhotoPass photographers: Disney bands, Disney MagicMobile passes, and/or admission cards. In the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can create a Disney MagicMobile pass for yourself and anyone whose My Disney Experience account profile you manage. Those whose My Disney Experience account profiles you manage appear with the words "Plans managed by me" on your Family & Friends List. You are unable to create Disney MagicMobile passes for your family, Charlotte, because they have their own My Disney Experience accounts.

    Currently, Disney MagicMobile passes can only be shared through Apple iMessage and the recipient must have an iPhone, which means you won't be able to add your family's Disney MagicMobile passes to your Google wallet that way, either. Before you label me a Disney Villain, let me share what you can do to streamline your access to the parks. 

    You can stop by a theme park ticket window to pick up admission cards for your family members. I have Disney MagicMobile passes for my children on my phone, but my son really enjoys turning the Mickey light green at Lightning Lane entrances. Earlier this month, we got him an admission card at a Guest Relations window outside of Magic Kingdom Park and put it in a plastic sleeve attached to a retractable badge holder that we used on our last cruise. This gave him hands-free independence during our park days and I didn't have to worry about getting my wallet or phone out for each attraction.

    You can purchase a Disney band for interested family members at various retail locations on Walt Disney World Resort property. Keep in mind that the newest model of Disney bands must be linked, paired, and fully charged before use.

    I hope I've redeemed myself as a Disney Heroine in your eyes, Charlotte. There are many ways to tap into Disney magic and all methods of entry lead to Cinderella Castle.

    Choose magic,
