    How do I "link" my account so the dad/mom can take total control of the trip? When I "share" the trip with them, it seems like them can only make change for themselves...not the entire family?

    Hey there, hi there, Al! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! I'm so glad you've stopped by with such a great planning question.

    Al, before you know it, you will be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth, ready to begin your most magical adventure. How exciting! It sounds as if you have booked a Walt Disney World Resort vacation for yourself and another family and are looking for a way for the parents to also manage the plans for their kiddos. As someone who is also the Disney planner for friends and family, I have been in your exact situation and am more than happy to help!

    Since you are the one currently managing the plans for the little Mouseketeers, you will have to give their parents permission to start managing the kids' plans. You and the parents are linked via your Family and Friends List, so you are off to a practically perfect start. Now, have one of the parents log in to their My Disney Experience account, hover over the "My Disney Experience" tab, click "My Family & Friends," scroll down and click "Add a Guest." They should then select "Find through my connected Guests" and select their kiddos from the list of Guests. 

    Next, check your email to accept the invite and allow them to also manage the kids' plans. Now, they should be all set to make plans for the entire family, including dining reservations, Enchanting Extras, Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane selections, and more! Happy planning!

    I hope this helps, Al, and I hope you all have the most magical and memorable vacation! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have. 

    You've got a friend in me,
