    We are a family travelling to Disney world in 2019 from Australia Does everyone in our party of 14 have to have their own app to book fast passes? We will only have a limited number of phones as our Australian phones are too expensive to use with data

    Hi Pam,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted to hear that you are bringing the family to the Walt Disney World Resort from Australia! It will be a long but fun journey!

    One person can indeed make Fast Pass+ selections for everyone, but there are a few things to consider. First, make sure that everyone in the family is listed in the My Family & Friends list of the lead person making the Fast Pass+ selections. That person can add everyone through the My Family & Friends List. Other people can have their own My Disney Experience Accounts but you just all need to connect through the My Family and Friends List for one person to make the Fast Pass+ selections.

    Second, if one person will make all of the Fast Pass+ selections, then that person needs to have everyone's theme park tickets linked in My Disney Experience. And, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, be sure that everyone's MagicBand is linked in My Disney Experience as well. Once everyone is linked and your Fast Pass+ selection window has arrived, then the lead Fast Pass+ person can make selections. 

    Third, I do want to give a word of caution. If there are any children with you who may not meet the height requirements for certain rides, you may want to have at least two "riding groups." If so, I would suggest another person to make and manage the Fast Pass+ selections for the second riding group. While the younger children ride Peter Pan's Flight and Dumbo the Flying Elephant at Magic Kingdom, the older ones could ride Space Mountain and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. I have found that when making Fast Pass+ selections for more than five or six people, it gets harder to keep up with if you have different selections for different groups.

    Pam, your trip will be here sooner that it seems!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs.
