    Hi! I am planning a trip for 15 family. I will be helping with lightening lanes/reservations. If every has their magic bands linked to their accounts, can I make reservations for lightening for all of us if I have their tickets linked but no their bands?

    Hi Samantha! Welcome to planDisney! I'm super excited to hear you're planning an incredible trip with your family! As someone who loves organizing Walt Disney World Resort trips for my family, I understand how much fun you must be having. You're all set to have the time of your lives, and I'm here to help you make it even better!

    I'm glad you asked that question! Let's dive right into it, friend. To book unique experiences like dining, Enchanting Extras Collection reservations such as Savi's Workshop, or Lightning Lane selections, all you need to do is make sure that your Theme Parks tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account and that everyone on your "My Family & Friends List" is sharing their plans with you. Once you've taken care of these little details, it's smooth sailing! You'll be able to book everything you want and enjoy a magical time at Disney.

    Now, I need to tell you two very important things.

    Currently, you can make a reservation for up to 12 Guests for a Lightning Lane arrival window or an Individual Lightning Lane entrance. It would be best for two people to use different devices, and My Disney Experience accounts to increase your chances of getting the same arrival window. Each person should try to book for half of your group simultaneously so your entire party can join the Lightning Lane queues together.

    Lastly, you don't need to link your MagicBands to make selections or join Lightning Lane queues. How cool is that? You can use your physical Theme Park tickets or the Disney MagicMobile Service digital pass. And don't worry, if you change your mind or forget to link your MagicBands, you can do it anytime before or during your visit.

    Samantha, it sounds like you're all set for an amazing time with your fantastic family! I'm sure you'll create unforgettable memories and have the trip of a lifetime. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions - I'm always happy to help out a friend like you.
