    Hi, if both myself and my husband shall be trying to grab a Genie + or LL on our own phones, is it better to have our own accounts on MDE to increase the chances or do you need to use the same account? Can you link tickets to other accounts easily?

    Hiya Sally!

    You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney. Thanks so much for stopping by with your vacation planning question! I see your magical Walt Disney World Resort holiday is just a couple of short months away - how exciting! You're in for a memorable visit, as you'll catch the grand finale of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration. You'll be one of the last lucky Guests to see the theme park icons transformed into glowing Beacons of Magic and view special nighttime spectaculars like Disney Enchantment and Harmonious - oh boy!

    Sally, when it comes to purchasing Disney Genie + service and booking Lightning Lane entry selections, fast fingers are key! If you and your husband both have separate My Disney Experience accounts, be sure that you are linked via your Family & Friends Lists. This will ensure that both you and your husband will be able to purchase Disney Genie + service as well as secure Lightning Lane entry selections for both of you, as your individual theme park tickets and theme park reservations will already be linked to your accounts. My recommendation is to designate one person (either you or your husband - whoever is fastest!) to make selections for both of you. However, if you do want to each try reserving selections at the same time to maximize your options, I recommend you each log into your My Disney Experience mobile app using your separate, unique Disney accounts. This is because if you are both logged into the same account, sometimes the system can be slower to respond. Every moment matters when you're hoping to ride popular attractions like Remy's Ratatouille Adventure or Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway!

    I hope this information helps you to maximize your time in the theme parks during your upcoming visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Sally! If you have any additional planning questions, please feel free to stop on by planDisney again anytime - we're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
