    I have a larger party all linked under my account. (tickets already saved in apple wallet) Can other people in the party also download the app and use my account so I don't have to use my phone to scan everyone in at the entrance and lightning lanes?

    Hi Jennifer! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Traveling with a large group can be so much fun, and I think it is a great idea to give each person the ability to scan into the theme parks and Lightning Lanes on their own.

    It is possible for your travel party to log in to your My Disney Experience account, however having too many people logged on to your account could affect your ability to use the app as well as cause issues when scanning into Lightning Lanes. 

    There are a few alternate options! Before entering the theme parks, you could stop at a Guest Relations and request a hard ticket for each group member. They can use this ticket to enter the theme parks and scan into Lightning Lane queues. However, one thing to note about using a hard ticket is that it will not “collect” ride photos that use Bluetooth technology to automatically link to your My Disney Experience account, this includes rides such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

    Another option is to get a MagicBand+ for everyone in your party! I like this choice because each member of your group can choose their own MagicBand or MagicBand+ to fit their style. You can then link the MagicBands to each person through your My Disney Experience account under "MagicBands and More." This option will still allow you to manage their tickets and plans, but now each person can scan in on their own. The MagicBand+ will also allow your attraction photos to link to your My Disney Experience account through Bluetooth or by scanning the MagicBand+ at a photo preview wall after exiting the attraction. 

    When you have a MagicBand+ your party can also enjoy interacting with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection throughout all four theme parks! My family had so much fun finding the characters as we were walking to our next attraction. The MagicBand+ also lights up in sync with the nighttime spectaculars, my kids really enjoyed watching the colors of the MagicBand+ match the colors lighting up around Cinderella Castle.  

    And since I mentioned attraction photos, I highly recommend purchasing Memory Maker for your vacation. When you have a large group, it’s a great way to get photos of everyone in front of those iconic backdrops you'll find in Walt Disney World. 

    I hope this has given you some convenient options for your large group, Jennifer. I know your travel party will have a magical time together! Please visit us at planDisney again if you have any more questions!
