    Hey there, Jo Ann! Thanks for bringing this great question to planDisney. We're happy you're here!

    Can you believe that you're only a few days away from your magical vacation at Walt Disney World Resort? I'm so excited for you! Before you know it, you'll be enjoying some delicious snacks and hopping on thrilling attractions. Don't forget to check out the global marketplaces featured at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and make sure that you pack your spooky best if you plan on purchasing tickets to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

    It sounds like you're ready to share the planning from your My Disney Experience account with your children! This way, they'll be able to view and co-manage their plans once they download the My Disney Experience app on their own devices. First, have your kids make their own My Disney Experience accounts if they haven't already. Then, log into your account online, hover your mouse over the My Disney Experience tab, and click My Family & Friends. Here, you'll likely see the words "Plans managed by me" next to your children's names. Click "Update," then "Share Planning with..." Enter the email address associated with their My Disney Experience account. Once they accept the invitation on their end, they'll be able to have access to their plans through the My Disney Experience app!

    Then – yes! Once your kids have downloaded the My Disney Experience app and have access to their own accounts and plans, I would recommend that they connect and pair each MagicBand+ to their phones. Of course, if you need any additional assistance with the above steps, you can always call a friendly Cast Member. They'll be happy to take a look at your plans and help you with the next steps! 

    If you have any other questions, please write to us again. We're happy to help! After all, you've got a friend in me.

    See ya real soon!
