    I remember from past trips there was a way to add party members to my account and assign them an avatar. I can't see this option anymore. Is this only activated one you have purchased and linked tickets or can you just add them to your account.

    Hi Anne,

    Welcome to planDisney. I'd be happy to help as you prepare for your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort. As an East Coast girl, I love being able to manage my Family and Friends List for my frequent visits to Walt Disney World Resort. Though guests are able to choose a character avatar for themselves or a connected family member within the My Disney Experience App, there is not currently an option to do the same within the Disneyland Resort App.

    But not to worry! You can still link tickets for members of your travel party so you won't miss a moment of the fun together. This is especially helpful if you'll be utilizing Lightning Lane entrances for attractions through Disney Genie+ Service or are hoping to join a Virtual Queue together during your visit.

    Once you all have your tickets you can link to one another using the Disneyland Resort App. You may need to wait until you've arrived in the US to download this if it's not already installed on your mobile device from a past trip. To link your tickets, click the three horizontal lines at the bottom right of the app, then select the tile for "Tickets and Passes" and click the option to "Link Tickets & Passes." You'll be able to do so using your phone's camera or by manually typing in the ID Number associated with the tickets. My fellow panelist and Disneyland Resort expert Carrie also shared some helpful suggestions on linking tickets, especially if multiple families will be joining you on your upcoming vacation. 

    The Holidays at Disneyland Resort will be in full swing when you arrive in November so be sure not to miss a magical moment of the festive fun that awaits. The incredible overlays on "its a small world" Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday are two of my personal favorite experiences at Disneyland Park. You'll also want to try and grab an iconic and incredibly delicious Mickey-shaped gingerbread cookie too. I'm still dreaming of them from my visit last December!

    If we can offer any additional assistance please don't hesitate to stop back and see us again.

    Magic and memories,
