    I invited my family to join My DIsney Experience. Am I the only one who can book fast passes for the group or are we all able to do it ?

    Hi Ellen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It’s rare for us to take a trip with just my immediate family, so I have experience traveling with pretty large groups. Linking Family & Friends is my specialty!

    Anyone with a My Disney Experience Account can make FastPass+ selections for themselves and anyone they are linked to as Family & Friends (as long as each of those people has ticket media linked to them).

    My recommendation is that each adult creates their own My Disney Experience Account. If there are any children in the group, only one adult (usually a parent) in that family should add their children to their account. For example, in my house, I have my own account with the kids listed, and my husband has his own account. Then we used the Family & Friends option to link to one another. If there is an adult that doesn't wish to use My Disney Experience, maybe they are technology challenged, or maybe grandma just wants to go with the flow and not worry about it, that person can be added and managed by someone else.

    Once all the adults have their own accounts, use the Family & Friends option to link everyone together. Keep in mind you may need to make multiple links if you want everyone to see the entire party. For example, I am linked to my mom and my husband, and I could make FastPass+ selections for each of them. But if my husband is going to make a FastPass+ for my mom, they also need to link via Family & Friends.  Once everyone is linked, anyone in the group with a My Disney Experience Account can book FastPass+ selections for anyone else!

    I hope that helps you, Ellen. If you are having any difficulty linking your Family & Friends, I have had great luck calling the helpful Cast Members to help me over the phone when necessary.

    Have a magical day!
