    Hi, as park reservations are no longer needed for date based tickets, can I still add future plans to MDE for the whole group to know which park is planned for each day in advance, or is the Genie tip board/my day service the only way to do this?

    Hi Megan, Welcome to planDisney! Your trip to Walt Disney World Resort will  be here before you know it!  I'm thrilled to assist you! Linking tickets and making plans for your group must mean you're gearing up for a trip to Walt Disney World! You are sure to make awesome memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Megan, you are correct as of January 9, 2024 Theme Park Reservations are no longer required for Date based tickets. To keep the plans and group together, I would suggest that everyone in your party create their own My Disney Experience account, if they haven't already, then adding them to your Friends & Family list. I would then suggest connecting your account with the account of everyone in your party on their own devices. That way you will still be able to access all your plans, including Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes from your own account but still be able to share plans and tickets.  

    I find the easiest way to connect to the accounts of friends and family members is by using your Linking Code. To find your Linking Code, tap on the 3 horizontal lines on the bottom right of the My Disney Experience app. Scroll to the bottom of the screen then under Disney Account, tap “Profile.” Next, tap “Show My Linking Code.” The app will then prompt you with a warning explaining what the linking code is. Once someone scans your Linking Code, you’ll be added to their Friends & Family list. Next tap “Show My Linking Code.” The app will then create a unique linking code. There’s a QR version as well as a manual code that your friends and family can type in.

    If the members of your party want to scan a linking code to connect to you (or you want to scan their linking code) - tap on the three horizontal lines to the bottom right of the My Disney Experience app. Select “Profile” and then “Friends & Family List.” You’ll then scroll down to where it says “Add a Guest.” Follow the prompts to Scan their Linking Code. You’ll scan their linking code when they have it up on their phone, or you can manually enter the code. That's it!

    I hope this information helps you prepare for an exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Megan! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
