    My daughters Senior trip was canceled because of the Corona Virus. Her and a few of her friends are looking to plan their own trip after they graduate. Four will be 18, one will be 19. Will they have an issue with this or will they be able to book?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Janice!

    I am a high school teacher, and am thrilled to chaperone my school's Senior Class Trip to Walt Disney World each spring; I am so happy you asked this question!

    Your daughter's plan is absolutely perfect. All five friends will be 18+, so all will be able to make reservations however they'd like. This means that any one of the friends can book Advanced Dining Reservations, Senses Spas treatments, an adventure at The VOID: Step Beyond Reality, or even a very special experience at Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Each Guest should have created their own My Disney Experience account, so even if previous plans have changed, those accounts are still intact. If anyone did not make an account, they can do so now, making future plans so much easier.

    Be sure to have each Guest download the super-handy My Disney Experience mobile app so that they can all keep in touch with plans everyone has made, including FastPass+, Advanced Dining Reservations, and even Memory Maker: A Disney PhotoPass Product.

    Although this revised trip may be different than the one originally planned, it will be truly magical. Without having to adhere to a set schedule, your daughter and her friends will be able to dine where and when they want, head to any park that they want, and set their schedule however they want. Plus side: the magic is theirs to enjoy as they please!

    As your daughter and her friends plan their trip, be sure to send us more questions. We love to help...and I've got 15 years of chaperone experience to help them craft the most magical stay!
