    There are 2 guests under 13 in our group, I am not their parent. If their parents create their profile and link their tickets, will I be able manage the plans of the children? If not, how do we make this happen so I can manage their plans?

    Hi Matthew, it's always great to see you planning Disney at planDisney!

    I know a fairy godparent when I see one and you most certainly fit the bill. It sounds like you're planning to visit Walt Disney World Resort during the 50th Anniversary Celebration with some lucky mouseketeers. Fairy godparents can say "yes" to Mickey's Premium Ice Cream Bars for breakfast, "yes" to riding Space Mountain multiple times in a row, and "yes" to staying up past bedtime for Disney Enchantment fireworks.

    Since children under 13 are not able to have their own My Disney Experience accounts, profiles must be created for them under an adult's account. The adult that creates the profiles is the one that officially manages their plans, though anyone connected to children as Family and Friends can view and make plans for them, as well. 

    Things that only the managing adult can do include downloading the children's Disney MagicMobile passes (which can be shared once created), managing their MagicBands and admission cards, and changing their My Disney Experience profile pictures. Things you can do if the children appear on your Family and Friends list include linking tickets, making theme park reservations, making dining reservations, and booking Lightning Lane attractions. I manage my children's My Disney Experience accounts and know they would have no problem visiting the parks with my husband or their grandparents.

    To reiterate, you should have no problem making plans for the children in your group as long as they appear on your Family and Friends list, Matthew. Connecting with people whose profiles are managed under another account adds an extra step to the connection process, which I'll review for you now:

    1. The adult managing the children's My Disney Experience profiles should log into their Family and Friends list and click "Update" next to their own name, followed by "Share My List."
    2. Log into your Family and Friends list, Matthew, and click "Add a Guest." Select "Find through my connected Guests" and the kids should automagically appear since they are connected to an adult whose list is shared*. Select the name of each child and finally "Add Guest."

    *This assumes that you and the adult managing the children's profiles are already connected as Family and Friends. If that's not the case, you must connect with them before connecting with the children.

    Thanks for making planDisney a part of your trip-planning team, Matthew. Here's my direct line for follow-up questions.
