    My Dad booked a trip for all of his kids and grand kids, how do we link the reservations to mine and my sisters Disney accounts?

    Hi Cheryl,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your dad wins Dad of the Year! How awesome of him to book a trip for the whole family.

    First, I suggest that your dad create his own My Disney Experience Account if he has not done so already. If he does not want to manage plans for everyone, another person can do it, but it is easier if one person manages plans in My Disney Experience. If he booked a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can link that resort hotel to your My Disney Experience account. Once someone has the resort hotel linked, she or he can connect to everyone else in My Family & Friends List. To connect with everyone in My Family & Friends List, go to the My Family & Friends List and click on Add Guest.

    Whomever manages the plans for everyone through My Disney Experience will need to link the theme park tickets and then assign them to each family member. Once you receive your MagicBands, those will need to be linked in My Disney Experience and assigned to each family member. To Link MagicBands and Cards, go to MagicBands and Cards and click on Link.

    As long as you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can make your dining reservations 180 days in advance (up to 10 days) and your Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance - definitely do so! Someone will need to plan out the Fast Pass+ selections before your actual Fast Pass+ selection day, especially if your kids are different ages and some do not meet the height requirements for certain rides. If this is the case, I suggest you plan Fast Pass+ selections in riding groups. Put the younger kids together with a few adults and the older kids can then ride the thrill rides. 

    Cheryl, when we travel with extended family, we also purchase Memory Maker to get digital access to all of our PhotoPass photos!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
