    I made hotel, park, dining res for my family. My wife and I are linked in Disney app. My MagicBand+ is linked to my phone, and her MB+ is linked to her phone. Will linking each kids MB+ to my phone impact using her phone for Genie+ or LL while in park?

    Hey Patrick, welcome to planDisney!

    I see and appreciate your efforts to get all of your Donalds, I mean ducks, in a row before your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. April is a popular time to visit the parks thanks to school breaks and beautiful weather. Disney Genie+ service is a great way to spend less time queueing and more time doing on your park days.

    With MagicBand+, your family will have easy, hands-free access to Lightning Lane entrances. MagicBands must be linked to an individual's My Disney Experience account or account profile before use. MagicBand+ designs must also be paired to a mobile device and fully charged before use. It sounds like you manage your children's My Disney Experience account profiles, Patrick. You can confirm this by taking a look at your Family & Friends List. Those whose account profiles you manage will have the words "Plans managed by me" next to them. Only the managing adult can pair a Guest's MagicBand+ to their mobile device. Rest assured, your wife can still view and make plans for your children (purchase Disney Genie+ service for them, book Genie+ Lightning Lanes for them, purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for them, etc) as long as they are connected as Family & Friends. 

    I manage my children's My Disney Experience account profiles. During a recent visit, my daughter's preferred method of entry was a MagicBand 2 design and my son had a MagicBand+. I purchased Disney Genie+ service for my party of six at 6:45 a.m. so I could book my first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. Throughout the day, my husband and I alternated making Genie+ reservations using the My Disney Experience mobile app on our separate devices. This worked seamlessly and I hope you have a similarly positive experience. 

    Our Walt Disney World Resort vacation countdowns are about the same size, Patrick. If you're too excited to sleep, don't hesitate to reach out with more questions. 

    Plan magic; planDisney.
