    Hi - we are new to the My Disney Experience App. We are planning a trip for 4 adults and 1 child under 13. How do I set up the app to make all of our fastpasses & reservations together as a group. We are not staying on a Disney resort.

    Hi Patti!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I'll be glad to help you get your My Disney Experience account set up.

    Personally, I prefer creating the account on my desktop (I think it is easier to find where everything is), but working in the mobile app will be similar.  You can either create one account and add each person's profile to it, or each adult can create their own account and link them together for planning purposes.  So think about and decide if you want all Guests in the same account or not.  If you think some of the adults will be planning their own Disney vacations without you, they may want to have their own accounts.  For example, I have one account with my husband and kids in it.  If my parents would be joining us, I would just create profiles for them in my account since I don't think they would want to be bothered with their own accounts.  My sister has an account for her family, and we can link our accounts together when we vacation together.

    Now that you have that big decision out of the way, once you have created your account you will "Add a Guest" in your Family & Friends list.  In the mobile app, select the menu (three horizontal lines) in the lower right corner, then "My Profile" to get to your Family & Friends List.  You will enter their name and age, and then check whether you will manage all plans for them, or if they have created their own account, you will "Invite this Guest to connect" using the same email they used for their Disney account.

    Be sure each Guest has linked their theme park tickets to their profile -- you must have tickets in order to make your FastPass+ reservations.  You can also make your dining reservations on the website or through the mobile app (select the plus sign and then "Reserve Dining".)

    I hope that gets you started!  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to stop by the Moms Panel again.  We are always happy to help.  You can also give the friendly My Disney Experience Cast Members a call at (407) 939-4357.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
