    I am in a party of 7 with the Dining Plan in 3 separate rooms. We will be staying together about 95% of the time, except occasionally when we split for a meal. Is there a reason anyone else would need access to my Disney account, or just the app for maps?

    Hi Anne! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Only a few more days until your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Each time we chat, your trip is a little bit closer. How exciting is that?!

    The My Disney Experience mobile app is one of the best vacation tools out there! I use it a LOT on our vacations, but even when we travel with extended family, I'm the only one that uses it. Some of the useful features in the theme parks include Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering, FastPass+ selections and changes, current wait time viewing, dining reservation selections, current plan lists, and PhotoPass photo viewing. As long as the other Guests in your party won't need access to any of those items, you can be the keeper of the mobile app and just update everyone as you go along.

    Most of what everyone in your party will need is connected to their MagicBands. They can use their MagicBands to scan for dining plan use, theme park tickets, FastPass+ selections, merchandise purchases (if linked to a credit/debit card), and PhotoPass photos.

    I hope this information helps, Anne! Please let us know if any other questions pop-up!
