    I heard that for a 13-year-old child, they need to sign up with a parent's account and establish a connection. Can you guide me on how to connect a child?

    Hi there, Bitnara,

    Whether for a child or an adult, you may choose to manage the tickets and reservations for any other member of your party. If one of the Guests in your party is at least 13 years old, they may also have a Disneyland Resort account of their own. With their account, they can link their ticket to their account as well as tickets of other members of your party, if agreeable to everyone. If multiple Guests in your party have your tickets linked to their respective accounts, they can use the Disneyland mobile app to take turns booking Lightning Lane return times with the optional Disney Genie+ service. Anyone with a ticket linked to their account can also display that ticket ID to help admit the Guest using that ticket into a theme park or a Lightning Lane.

    Because 13 years old is the minimum age for creating a Disneyland Resort account, any Guest under 13 must have their theme park admission and other reservations managed by another member of their party who is at least 14 years old. (Some account activity, such as storing and using a credit card, may only be performed with an account created for a Guest who is at least 18 years old.) At the Disneyland Resort, a specific Guest profile does not need to be created for minors under 13 or for other Guests who may choose not to have a profile created. As long as another Guest has a Disneyland Resort account to which theme park tickets can be linked, a Guest without a specific profile can have their ticket and reservations managed by the Guest with the Disneyland Resort account.

    A Guest without a Disneyland Resort account may have their name linked to their theme park ticket. They should also be counted among the number of Guests booked for a dining reservation, although individual dining Guests need not be named. Some reservations, such as for building a lightsaber at Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers, may ask for a Guest name but won’t require a full profile to be created for that Guest. The account used to create reservations can be used to manage those reservations on behalf of Guests without their own account.

    Tony’s Tip: A Disneyland Resort account may also be used to link an optional MagicBand+ and assign it to the ticket used by a Guest who does not have their own account. If that Guest chooses to use their MagicBand+ to play Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters, the Guest with the account may help track progress in the interactive game using their account when logged into the free Play Disney Parks app.

    Thanks again for visiting us at planDisney, Bitnara. I hope you have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort!
