    When purchasing park tickets is there a way to "link" each ticket to my family member's profile in my Disney experience? Will that family member also be able to help me secure dining reservations? Finally do you offer memory maker?

    Hello and welcome back to planDisney, Arlene! I hope that you are having fun planning your trip to the Disneyland Resort and that we continue to be a valuable source of assistance for you!

    I see that you have several questions about differences between visiting Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort. My fellow panelist Amy C said it best when she stated that "the parks are sisters, not twins." When navigating the Parks and Apps, you kind of know where everything should be but have to look a little harder to find them. Like Scrooge McDuck in his vault, let's dive into your questions:

    • Instead of My Disney Experience, you'll need to download the Disneyland Mobile App. There is no Friends and Family section like our Florida counterpart. You are still able to link everyone's tickets to a profile, however. In the App, select the ☰ Features menu and scroll down to find "Link to Account." Once everyone is linked under one profile, you'll have a much easier time purchasing Genie+ and reserving Lightning Lanes as a group. 
    • Anyone in your party with a Disneyland account may make Dining Reservations which become available 60 days in advance. There is no need to have everyone linked or to enter names. The website or app will simply request the number in your party in order to search for availability. If you would like to share reservation details with others in your party, have them navigate to the Disneyland website, pull down "My Disneyland," select "My Plans" and click "Add More Plans."
    • Memory Maker is a Walt Disney World product that Disneyland does not offer. The closest comparable add-on is PhotoPass+. If you are thinking about purchasing Genie+, know that all PhotoPass downloads come included with your purchase that day. In addition, all attraction photos are currently complimentary during the Disney100 Celebration!

    I'm so excited that your trip is drawing ever closer! Be sure to check out my favorite attraction, Pirates of the Caribbean. You might be familiar with the Walt Disney World version, but I think the differences are enough to warrant a ride-through. You'll also be at the heart of the Disney100 Celebration, so take some time to try some of the delicious foods on offer (especially the Lemon Tea Cake! Yum!). 

    I hope you found this useful, Arlene, and that we are helping you Be Prepared for your visit! Please feel free to write back to me or any of my friends at planDisney for further planning tips and advice.

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
