    I set up accounts for my children on both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World apps when they were younger. They both now have phones of their own, so how can they access the accounts I sent up for them on their phones?

    Hi Valerie! Welcome to planDisney. I'm so happy you found us!

    If your children are at least 13 years old, they can create their own My Disneyland account. Then, once they download the Disneyland mobile app onto their phones, they would simply log in to their account using their credentials. The same would be true for the My Disney Experience mobile app for the Walt Disney World Resort.

    For the Disneyland Resort, you would likely want to make sure that any theme park tickets are connected to both of your accounts. Since you'll likely purchase the tickets for them, you would need to link the tickets to their My Disneyland accounts. I like to do this on the My Disneyland mobile app. Once logged in, select the three horizontal lines in the bottom right-hand corner (≡), click on "Tickets and Passes," press the plus (+) sign in the top right-hand corner, select "Link Tickets & Passes," and follow the prompts. For the Disneyland Resort, you can have tickets linked to multiple accounts. This way, everyone can access them as needed.

    For the Walt Disney World Resort, once your child has set up their own My Disney Experience account, you'd need to go to your Family & Friends list and select "Update" next to your child's name. There should be an option to share planning with them. When you select this option, you will enter their email address and that should start the connecting process and link all previous information, including MagicBands and theme tickets. If you run into any issues, please feel free to call the resort!

    Please keep in mind that with both of these accounts, if your children are not 18 years old or older, they will not be able to use their accounts for payment. Conversely, if your children are not yet 13, you can use the Disney MagicMobile Service to share tickets with them if they have iPhones. These can be scanned to get into the parks and redeem Lightning Lanes.

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out again.
