    My son's minor account has our ticket reservations and is not linked to me. Does he need a park reservation on his Magic band+ to play the Bounty Hunter game in Studios or can we link it to a new account managed by me without a park ticket?

    Hi April,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! Your vacation is so soon, has the countdown started yet?

    When it comes to MagicBand+, guests can utilize the Service for entrance into the Theme Parks and fun interactions throughout the Theme Parks, like Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters. If you’re hoping to utilize these features, MagicBand+ does need to be connected to your My Disney Experience mobile app and you’ll need a Theme Park reservation especially for entry.

    Now, in your case there are a few things you could do! If your son’s account currently holds all the tickets and Disney Park Pass reservations, the family could just utilize his app throughout the trip this time around. As a teen, I actually did all the planning for my family and many of my family members didn’t have an account, it just made things simpler for us. Keep in mind if you go this route, he (with your help) would be making any Lightning Lane reservations or utilizing mobile ordering through his app. 

    The other option could be that the family members that have a My Disney Experience account could link their account to his so their tickets flow into their accounts and the app. To do this, from his app’s home screen, select the three horizontal lines in the right lower corner. Then have him scroll down to “My Profile” and tab over to “Family & Friends List”. From here, he’ll want to select each individual’s name that has their own account and under “Share Plans”, choose “Send Email”. Once the email is sent and you and your family accept, the plans in your son’s app will be shared with you and the other members of your party who have an account. Again, this is just another option if everyone wants to keep things separate. Remember, you can always call the My Disney Experience, MagicBand and MagicBand+ help desk as well if needed!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your upcoming trip. If you have any last minute planning or vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
