    Hi, I had originally invited everyone in our party to the group to let them be more involved in the planning. My 16yr old daughter has accepted but we now realise that it would be easier to have everyone on the 1 mobile app. Can the control be passed back?

    Hello there, Jennifer!

    I know, like Frozen’s Elsa, you may be feeling like you are going Into the Unknown, but it sounds like you were exactly on the right track. Now, it’s time to see what your vacation planning skills can do. 

    Jennifer, everyone in your party will need their own My Disney Experience account, and whoever creates the account for little sidekicks in your party will manage those children’s accounts. Once you link everyone in your party to your “Family & Friends List” and they accept the invites, you can still manage the plans for the party on your one mobile device once you are all linked up. I know this step takes time, but it is worth it to give your party some flexibility. 

    Now that everyone in your party has accepted your invitation, you should all be able to see and make advanced dining reservations and Disney Genie+ Lighting Lane selections for each other. Having this flexibility means that each person can make their own theme park or dining reservations, or you can make these reservations for the entire group. Similarly, if you purchase Disney Genie+, your party can split up to book different attractions, or you can book the same attractions for everyone in your group. 
    Finally, once you are all linked together, you should still be able to see everyone’s tickets in your My Disney Experience mobile app. I hope this is helpful, Jennifer. If you have specific questions about your situation that you’d like to sort out, you can also call a friendly Cast Member to help you navigate the My Disney Experience mobile app. 

    May the magic be with you!
