    We will be coming to Disney World as a party of 6 (4 adults, 2 children). Right now on the MDE App, all plans are managed by me. Do the other 2 adults in the group need to create their own MDE account and then link to me to add their own payments for G+?

    Hello there, Whitney!

    Welcome to The Wonderful World of planDisney! This attraction enthusiast loves visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in September since you often experience lower crowds. It's also a great time to visit for seasonal experiences, such as EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. The 2023 dates haven't been announced yet, but check the Disney Parks Blog over the next couple of months for the latest news. Just beware of the hitchhiking ghosts in the Haunted Mansion!

    Your question is well-timed because I just managed my family's plans during a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort last week! Everyone in your party will need their own My Disney Experience account or profile. For the little Mousketeers, you can create a My Disney Experience profile by simply entering their name and age. The person who creates a child's profile will manage the profile and all the plans for that child. The other two adults must create their own My Disney Experience account.  

    Once they've created their account, you'll want to link them to your "My Family & Friends List." You could add the adults to your list by finding them through your already connected Guests, importing their information from their Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, or simply entering their name and age. Besides linking friends and family on the computer, the My Disney Experience mobile app makes this process even simpler! In the app, press the three horizontal bars on the screen's bottom right-hand corner, click "My Profile," and select the Family & Friends List at the top to see who is currently linked to your account. If the adults are nearby, you can add them by scanning their linking code on the app. 

    After you're all linked up, the adults can either purchase their own Disney Genie+ service, or you can purchase all of the Disney Genie+ services for the group on the date that you are planning to visit. Here are some handy tips for adding the Disney Genie+ service to the My Disney Experience mobile app. Once you all have Genie+, you'll be able to start making your selections for Lightning Lanes starting at 7:00 am. I always set the alarm for myself at 6:45 am to purchase Genie+ and prepare for my first selection at 7:00 am. I made all of the Lightning Lane selections for my family, but the other adults in your party can make their own selections if they'd like. 

    I'd love to offer recommendations or answer any other questions you may have before your trip. May the magic be with you!
