    I’m managing our trip to WDW through my Disney account. My husband is in charge of FastPasses. What’s the best way to link our Magic Bands so he has access to make FastPass reservations for everyone? Does he need his own acct with all the family as well?

    Hi Monica! Thanks for popping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's great to see you and your hubby working together on your vacation plans! We do the same thing at my house. My son and daughter have started getting involved too, which makes our planning so much fun!

    Related to your question, we have started working together when making our FastPass+ selections. We have each day and the attractions we want to select written on cards. At 7:00 AM Eastern Time, on the day we are able to make our selections, we each grab a card and make selections on our own device. When one day is complete, we grab the next card and alternate days until we have FastPass+ selections made for each day. When we are finished, we review our plans together and tweak where we need and are able to. It may sound a bit chaotic but it's a lot of fun and helps us make our selections quickly and efficiently.

    That being said, there have been many times only one of us has made our FastPass+ selections and that was perfect as well. To begin, yes, he does need his own My Disney Experience account. You will need to ensure your theme park tickets are linked to your individual accounts and then you will need to make sure everyone is on your husband's Friends & Family list. Once that is complete, when he is able to do so, he will be able to make all FastPass+ selections for everyone in your traveling party. You will also want to be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App. It's a great way to make and modify plans on the go.

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you need any other information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
