    Hi, we are planning our Disney vacation for next year. Can I have 2 reservations under my name (hotel and park passes): One for my family of 4 and the second one for my parents? Or do my parents have to make a separate account for themselves? Thanks!

    Hey there, Jen, and welcome back to planDisney! I'm so glad to see that we've been able to help you with your planning questions - and it's always fun to hear from a fellow Arizonan! 

    This is a fantastic question, and I can definitely relate! I'm often in the role of "official group planner" and will make hotel reservations, purchase tickets, and make theme park reservations for other friends or family when visiting the Disneyland Resort together.

    I'm happy to report that, when booking through the Disneyland Resort website, you most certainly can make these purchases and reservations all from your Disney account. In case you all are arriving at different times - you'll list your parents on their hotel reservations and then you won't have to be present when they check in, but they'll use their own information instead. It's really quite convenient! 

    I'm not sure if you've visited with your family and parents before, but I would highly recommend Disney Genie+ Service on your trip! If you all are planning on trying to fit in as many attractions as possible then you'll want the service added for everyone in your party so you can all make Lightning Lane selections throughout your trip.

    However, if you're planning a bit slower pace, I would still recommend at least one member of your party get the service to get access to unlimited downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos! That way you can make it a point to stop at as many PhotoPass locations as you can to document your trip with your family.

    I hope you have an amazing time visiting the Happiest Place on Earth! Thanks again for your question, Jen.

    Have a Magical Day,
