    I’m trying to attach my mom to my Disney world app so I can manage her plans. She didn’t have an account and doesn’t want the app on her phone but I can’t figure out how to do it. Can I manager her plans and link her magic band to my app?

    Hey Howdy Hey Breana and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question about managing an account without a My Disney Experience account. I will be happy to give you a little more information on this one so you can get back to planning your Magical trip later this spring. 

    In short, you should be able to set up an account that you manage from your My Disney Experience account for your mother. You should be able to link tickets and MagicBands as well and it should be fully operational on her end without managing it. What you will want to do is to log into your account and then hover over the My Disney Experience logo. Click on "My Family & Friends". Once there, you should see an option to "Add Guest". This will give you the option to link another My Disney Experience account but also at the bottom, you should see an option to "Add new Guest who doesn't have a Disney account". Click on that link and then follow the directions to add your mother's account. Once it is set up, you should have the option to select her icon when linking tickets and MagicBands. You can also go the the main My Disney Experience page, scroll to the "My Plans, Reservations and Tickets" section and click on the heading "Tickets, Passes & Memory Maker". You should see all tickets linked to your account and the members they are assigned to. Under the "My MagicBands & Cards" section you should also see the accounts linked to yours and which MagicBands are linked. Super easy!

    Once you are in the parks, you can also make Genie+ purchases and Individual Lightning Lane purchases for her as well. As you are following the prompts for purchase in the app, you will have the option to select which Guests you share plans with whom you want to purchase these for. The same is true when making Lightning Lane selections as well. It is all super easy to manage once connected! 

    I hope these steps are easy to follow and get you set up quickly. If you are having issues linking her account for any reason, you can feel free to call Disney and have a Cast Member link everything appropriately if need be. If you have any further questions, please feel free to stop back, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
