    We are paying for our family’s visit to Disney World. There are three separate families. Do we have to purchase the park tickets under each separate reservation or can my husband an I purchase them all together ? Is there any advantage to either option?

    Hi Grace,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! It’s so great to hear that you’re having a great, big, beautiful family vacation next year! 

    When it comes to tickets and planning with family members, I’ve found it easier if one person is in charge of the tickets. This means that this individual will hold the digital tickets in their My Disney Experience mobile app. This guest would also be the one responsible for making any Disney Genie+ selections, if purchased. 

    One of the many benefits of holding the tickets under one account is that everyone’s tickets are stored digitally in one place with names and age ranges helping differentiate between each ticket. It wouldn’t be necessary for the guests in your party to link them in their accounts separately. 

    Instead, if your guests have iPhones, you could use Disney MagicMobile to share their passes with them. You’d be in charge of making the Disney Park Pass and Genie+ reservations, but your guests would be able to scan into the Theme Park or Lightning Lane separately with their phones. Of course, you and your guests would also be able to use physical card tickets, MagicBands, or MagicBand+ to enter as well!

    As you’re looking at your Theme Park ticket options, remember to check out the Special Offers page and check back often as new options may come up.

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for the ultimate family trip next year. If you have any other planning or vacation questions in the coming months, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
