    My husband and I have set up our Disney apps and linked our passes. Our children are on my husbands app. I cannot see them on my app so will only my husband be able to book genie plus rides for all 4 of us?

    Hi Lucy, welcome to planDisney!

    When it comes to planning and executing a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, teamwork makes the dream work. On my family's park days, my husband and I take turns booking Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions and placing mobile food and beverage orders. My son borrows my phone to check attraction wait times and my tween daughter is the queen of using my phone to capture magical moments with Disney PhotoPass Lenses.

    In My Disney Experience, you can view and make plans for anyone that appears on your Family & Friends List. I understand your husband manages the account profiles for your children and that you are not currently connected to your children. Does your husband's name appear on your Family & Friends List? If not, follow these steps to connect with your husband as Family & Friends:

    1. Click "Add a Guest" at the bottom of your Family & Friends List.
    2. Select "I'll enter their name and age."
    3. Once you enter "18+" as the age, additional options appear and you should click "Invite this Guest to connect."
    4. Enter the email address connected to your husband's My Disney Experience account.
    5. Once your husband accepts the email invitation to connect, you will officially be connected as Family & Friends. 

    Once your husband appears on your Family & Friends List, follow these steps to connect with your children:

    1. Ask your husband to make sure the words "My list is shared" appear next to his name on his Family & Friends List. If they do not, he should click "Update" and "Share My List."
    2. Back on your Family and Friends List, Lucy, click "Add a Guest" and "Find through my connected Guests." Your children's names should automagically appear for selection if you are connected to your husband and his list is shared. In my experience, a page refresh might be required if you are making multiple account changes at once.

    Once your husband and kids appear on your Family & Friends List, you can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to purchase Disney Genie+ service for them, book Genie+ Lightning Lanes for them, view their attraction photos, and more! Top tip: purchase Disney Genie+ service by 6:45 a.m. so you can book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. each day.

    Consider me on call for any follow-up questions as your Walt Disney World Resort vacation enters its final countdown. I hope you have the best time making magical memories with your loved ones.

    Choose magic,
