    We are just starting to plan a trip to Disney World in Feb. for our whole family. Do I set up an account for each person in my family?

    Hiya Rick and welcome to planDisney!

    Welcome to the joys of planning a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. Your family is in for such a special treat. Keep your eyes open for news about the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts that traditionally happens around that time. My mom and I had a ball on our visit together in February of last year. Since then we've planned a vacation for 10 family members and one of the things we had to work out was who should have a My Disney Experience account. I'm happy to let you in on what worked for us.

    My party has 8 adults and 2 children. We decided that it would be wise for each adult to have their own My Disney Experience account. The children are too little to have their own accounts so one has a profile on my account and the other is attached to another adult. We then were all able to link our accounts via the Family & Friends List. In the My Disney Experience app, tap the three-lined icon at the bottom of the screen. Scroll down and tap My Profile. Chose the Family & Friends List and then the blue Add a Guest option. You can link up by sharing your linking code either manually or by scanning a special QRCode. Then you'll be all set to make your plans together! 

    Pro-tip: 16 is the minimum age to create a My Disney Experience account. If you have some teens in your party, it would be a good idea to let them create their own since we all know that sometimes they like to do their own thing. 

    Rick, I hope I've been able to help you today. If you have any other questions, all you have to do is ask me. We're here to help!

    Happy planning!
