    We are having a family reunion in Nov. for a total of 42 people . Is there an easy way to get fast passes for everyone in our party . Other ideas for a group this size that you may have. Thank You Mike

    Wow, Mike! What could be more fun than a family reunion at Walt Disney World Resort?! I'd love to share some tips and ideas to make the planning less stressful! 

    The first thing I'd suggest is to pick one person to oversee and coordinate everything. Then, make sure all the adults in your party create their own My Disney Experience Account for their immediate family members at least 60 days before your arrival. If you're the overseer for the group, then you'll want to add everyone to your Family & Friends list under your account. Connecting everyone allows you to make and share activities, FastPass+ selections (valid theme park admission required), and reservations. I've never done this for a group this size, so you may want to call Group Getaways at (407) 828-3318, and see if they can assist you with this process. It may be challenging getting the same FastPass+ selections for everyone at the same time, so consider breaking the party into smaller groups, according to attraction preferences.

    Group Getaways will also help with other aspects of your planning, too. If you want to have some sit-down dinners, these are the folks to call, and they will give you options and help with reservations. They can also assist with reserving blocks of 10 or more Walt Disney World Resort hotel rooms together, and get your group theme park tickets.

    For a splurge-worthy experience, you can arrange for Private VIP Tour Guides to give your family a customizable tour for the day (no Fast Pass+ selections would be needed)! Call them at (407) 560-4033 for details.  The Cast Members at the Enchanting Extras Collection are also full of magical ideas (a private Dessert Party would be SO much fun)! Contact them at (407) 939-7529.

    Lastly, make sure to purchase Memory Maker for your trip, so you can capture all of the wonderful moments that your family will have when visiting Walt Disney World Resort. The beauty of purchasing Memory Maker with a large party is that only one person needs to purchase it, and everyone on your Family & Friends list will receive the photos taken.

    Good luck planning, Mike! Stop by and see us again soon!

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania!  I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique.  It’s amazing how many people you can find who love talking about, "The Most Magical Place On Earth!"  I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at middle school basketball games waiting for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
