    How do I invite a family member (who is already a Managed Friend) to connect with me so that all of the entitlements and activities I have purchased and planned for them will be associated with their Site/App account?

    Welcome to planDisney, Marie! It's wonderful to see you here and I'd be delighted to help you with your question. Thank you so much for trusting us to share our vacation planning advice with you!

    It sounds like you might be already familiar with the Family and Friends List available in the My Disney Experience app for the Walt Disney World Resort. This is a convenient service that allows Guests to add members of your travel group to your reservations so that they can view plans like dining, hotel, and activity reservations. For your travel to Disneyland Resort, this particular service is not currently available, although I'm keeping my fingers crossed we'll see this function come over to the official Disneyland Resort mobile app in the future. It really is handy!

    However, there are some tips and tricks to help share information with your travel party so they are aware of the plans you've made. First, I recommend that everyone download and log in to their Disney account in the official Disneyland Resort mobile app. This will be a resource you'll want to refer to throughout your visit, so it's a good idea for everyone to become familiar with it in advance!

    Tickets and Theme Park Reservations: You should definitely plan to link all your group members' tickets together using the Disneyland Resort "Link Tickets" page, or embedded in the Disneyland mobile app under "Tickets and Passes." This will allow your group to join virtual queues for certain experiences or if you've chosen to use Disney Genie+ Service, anyone linked to your accounts will be able to select Lightning Lane Entrances together, as you wish. 

    Hotel Reservations: If you have multiple rooms reserved at one of the Disneyland Resort hotel properties, you can use the "Link Resort Reservation" page to enter the confirmation number and arrival date for each reservation.

    Dining and Enchanting Extra Activities: I'm sorry to say that, at this time, there is no function to link or add dining reservations or activity reservations to multiple accounts. Instead, I recommend simply taking screenshots or sharing the confirmation numbers with the members of your travel party. I know it isn't particularly elegant, but it works! 

    I hope this is a helpful start for you, Marie. It's so wonderful to hear that you'll be making memories with your loved ones in 'The Happiest Place on Earth' so soon! I have a few more recommendations for sharing plans with your travel group if you find them useful. And if you ever have any other questions, please share them with us here at planDisney!

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
