    I am the planner for a family trip.. I am paying for everything for my husband & I, our 2 daughters & their families. I have a confirmation number for each family but I want to link them so that we use one credit card.

    Hiya, Vivian!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh Boy! This sounds like the most magical visit to The Happiest Place on Earth with all of your Mouseketeers in tow! I'm thinking back to some of the most special memories my family shared on our multi-generational trip to Disneyland Resort and my top tip for you is to take all the pictures! Don't forget that if you purchase the brand new Disney Genie+ add-on product, all of your Disney PhotoPass digital downloads captured either on an attraction or with an in-person photographer are *included! (*Included photos must be downloaded from the Disneyland Mobile App within 30 days of capture, and are available for complimentary downloads only on the days that you purchased G+.)

    This is a great question. (Also, if you're looking to adopt a third daughter in her mid 30's, I might know of one or two.) When each family checks in at your Disneyland Resort Hotel, you can put your credit card down as the one that will pick up any remaining balance as well as host any incidental room charges. (Phone calls, room service, etc.)  While your card on file will be the one that's charged, the final bill or hotel folio of any to-the-room charges will be sent to the email address of the reservation owner. (But note that you can also request a printed copy at the front desk on check-out day.) If you have a vacation package where your final balance is due at least 30 days before check-in, you can call in the final payment at (714) 520-5060.

    As far as all other charges go, you can certainly ask for one check at all sit-down meals or advance dining reservations your group has, or hand over your credit card if someone goes on a snack run at a Quick Service location for everyone. What I would also do if this were me is I would let your daughters input your credit card information into the payment section of their Disneyland Mobile Apps so that when they use the Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering or Merchandise Mobile Checkout features, the charges will go to your card. Other than that, your best bet to make sure they don't incur any additional charges would be to purchase a Disney Gift Card that they could use if y'all already know of any activities or events where your group might be split up. Disney Gift Cards can be found in most stores where you live (grocery stores, big box stores, gas stations, etc) or you can purchase gift cards online at; e-gift cards can be used in the parks directly from the email in which they were sent, or you should still have plenty of time to order a physical card with a super cute design before your visit.

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Vivian! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
