    I've done most of the planning for our extended family's vacation, so the grandchildren's plans are managed by me. How can I get them moved to their parents' accounts? I won't be with them on all their days in the park.

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Ruth!

    The Walt Disney World Resort vacation planned for your family is coming fast. Before you know it, your grandchildren and their parents will make additional memorable memories in no time. Do not worry; your grandkids will be cared for in this situation. 

    You can ensure that everyone is added to your Family & Friends List and that you and your grandkids are added to their parent’s Family & Friends List. What will happen is their parents will include them on the reservation, and in their My Disney Experience Mobile app, they can select “My Profile” and Family & Friends List, and they will see that everyone is listed as “We’re Planning Together.” Everyone in your party will be included, and they can continue to plan for the group in your absence. If you need assistance, feel free to reach out to Disney’s customer service, explain your situation, and they will be able to assist.

    If you have additional questions, let us know how we can help.

    Have a magical vacation!
