    Our family (husband, teens, 1yo and myself ) is going to WDW in November. Does everyone need their own Disney account to be able to have the MDE app and be linked

    Hi Tammy!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You have two different options for setting up My Disney Experience for your family during your trip.

    The first option is to create profiles for your family members within your account. This way you can still assign them FastPass+ and dining reservations, without them having to create their own account. To do this you will want to log in to your My Disney Experience account and click on the My Disney Experience logo in the top right hand corner. Under the menu for My Account you'll want to click on My Family & Friends List. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page you'll see a link to +Add a Guest. This will allow you to create a profile for your family members by pulling them off your reservation and you will manage their profile. This is what my family does because my husband does not get super involved in the planning and he just uses my log in for his devices.

    If your family members would like to be involved in the planning, you can certainly set them up their own accounts but it is by no means necessary. There isn't a con to them setting it up, it just may not be necessary and easier for you to just create and manage their profiles. If they do choose to create them, you'll each claim the reservation then link up that way as they'll populate as a connected Guest. It really depends on what works for your family!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions before you visit Walt Disney World!
