    On the MDE app I am the only one in my party who is "planning with" everyone. Everyone else has most of the party listed as "other friends and family." Am I the only one who can try to get reservations or a boarding group?

    Hi there, Elizabeth! Thanks for stopping by planDisney! I’m so glad that you’ve stopped by to see us. Being the planner in your family is undoubtedly rewarding, but it can be even more fun when shared with others! As the primary My Disney Experience account holder, you can make plans for everyone listed on your Friends & Family list. But you can also give anyone else on that list the ability to share in the planning! It sounds like maybe this would be an excellent option for you. This would allow others in your party to make Dining Reservations and try to obtain boarding groups.

    For others to share in the ability to make plans, you will begin by navigating to your Friends & Family list and locating whomever you wish to grant access to. Once you’ve found them, look for the Hyperlink titled “Update” and click there. Once you’ve clicked this, the menu will expand, and you should see another hyperlink titled “Share Planning With,” followed by the Guest’s name. You will then be prompted to enter her email address to verify that they indeed wish for this change to happen! Once confirmed, you will be able to share the planning duties with that individual! How incredible! 

    Elizabeth, I hope that these instructions allow your loved ones to help you make special plans for your whole group. How wonderful to share in the process together. Please know that we are here for you during every stage of planning and dreaming for your next Disney family vacation! We would love to see you back here with any questions you may have!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
