    My husband and I have booked a June WDW trip (three children- two over 13.) He shared our plans booked thru his MDE account with me. However, I can only see him in my MDE account, no kids. Can I not make reservations for our children in my own account?

    Hiya Jada and welcome to planDisney!

    The world is a carousel of color and none of those colors are as bright as the ones at the Walt Disney World Resort. I know managing everyone's plans can sometimes feel like not knowing how to put those colors inside the lines. Let's turn this wild clamor of pigment into a beautiful work of art!

    Even if you and your husband are linked via Family & Friends in your My Disney Experience accounts, there are still a few extra brushstrokes required to paint your children into the picture. Since he made the reservations, My Disney Experience is considering him the person responsible for those young dreamers which may explain why you can't see them on your end. Have your husband open up his My Disney Experience account and tap My Family & Friends and then the blue Update next to his name. If his list is set to private, he should change it to public to set you up for success. You should then log in to your own account and tap the blue Add a Guest icon at the bottom of your Family & Friends List. You can choose the Find Through My Connected Guests setting and the children should be visible. Check the box next to their name and chosen character and then tap the blue Done button. Once your husband accepts your invitation, which can be found in the email account connected to his My Disney Experience account, you should be all set. Both of you should now be free to make plans using Disney Genie or  Disney Genie+ Services including those Individual Lightning Lane purchases

    Pro-tip: If you encounter any hiccups, you can chat with a Cast Member in the My Disney Experience app. Just open it up and tap that icon in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen and then tap Chat With Us. They've always been incredible when I needed help getting back on track!

    Jada, the wonderful Walt Disney World of color is so excited to see ya real soon. If you need any more help painting your pretty portrait, come back and let this artist help you fill in the blanks!

    Happy planning!
