    In the Disney app for planning my trip. My son is managed by my sister. How do I transfer it so that I manage him?

    Welcome to planDisney, Laura! It sounds like you're preparing for an awesome family adventure at the Most Magical Place on Earth, so let's get you squared away with My Disney Experience to ensure that you can make and access plans for yourself and your son on your upcoming visit!

    Laura, only one adult is able to manage the profile for a child; there is no way to transfer management of your son's existing profile in My Disney Experience from your sister to you, but there are some options I can suggest to ensure that you are able to plan with him and on his behalf for your visit!

    If your son is 13 years of age or older, he can create his own My Disney Experience account and then your sister can transfer ownership of his managed profile directly to him, thereby transferring any existing plans, tickets, and MagicBands along with ownership. To do this, your sister will find his managed profile under her Family & Friends list and select "Send Email" to enter the email associated with his new account. Once he accepts this invitation, he will gain control over his existing account. Once this step is complete, you can connect to him directly to link plans!

    If your son is not yet 13 years old, the best thing to do would be to request to connect to your son's managed profile by selecting "Add a Guest" in the My Disney Experience mobile app. The managed profile for your son should show up, and you can select his profile, and then choose "Find through my connected Guests" which will notify your sister of your request. Once she accepts the request, your son's managed profile will be a part of your Family & Friends list, so you will be able to include him on any hotel or dining reservations, Genie+ selections, Individual Lightning Lane purchases, and any other shared activities. If at any time you have trouble with any of these steps, or need additional assistance, you can always reach out to a Cast Member by phone for personal assistance.

    Laura, I hope this information is helpful and that you are able to connect to your son's existing profile to streamline your vacation plans! Be sure to check out all of the springtime celebrations recommended by the planDisney panelists during your visit! Magic is in full bloom, and you're going to have the best time finding it with your son!

    We'll see you real soon,
