    I am taking a school group to WDW in 10 days! Can I have all 22 of our tickets in my one My Disney Experience account or should I only have ten people per account and split them between chaperones?

    Welcome to planDisney, Michaela! First, let me commend you on your bravery! Having 22 students to manage is quite a feat, and I applaud your commitment to giving them a memorable experience at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Speaking of feet, there are so many whoozits and whatzits galore, let's pull out a monocle from Ariel's trove of treasures untold to make sure we don't miss any detail.

    Did you book your trip through the Disney Imagination Campus? If so, the Cast Members are awesome and can help you navigate these waters. If not, make a note of this for your next group adventure. It is a great program and resource for school groups. 

    With a group of this size, you can manage them all or you can choose to divide and conquer with the chaperones. The My Disney Experience app makes this easy. It may take a little bit of planning to organize all gadgets, but once you are set up, you have access to gizmos aplenty.

    1. If your students are at least 13 years old, I would ask them all to download the My Disney Experience app and create - or log in with - their My Disney Experience account. If they are under 13, their parents can create an account for them.
    2. Link to each other as "Family & Friends." This is easiest to do when you are in person. Open the app and select the three bars (≡) at the bottom of the screen. Go to "Profile," select the "Family & Friends" tab, and click "+ Add a Guest." Have the students open their app and go to the ≡ menu. Under "Profile," they can select "Show My Linking Code." You can scan and you should be linked. 
    3. Once you are all connected, you can make plans together, like selecting Lightning Lanes if you decide to purchase Genie+ and using Mobile Food Orders for meals and snacks. (Just a note, only Guests 18+ can add a credit card or make purchases through the app.)
    For ease, you may want to get into smaller groups and have the chaperones assist in scanning linking codes. You can share your Family & Friends list, so you all will be able to see everyone's plans and photos.

    With the My Disney Experience app, each student can set up MagicMobile to use their phone for entry into the parks. If you would like physical tickets, you can visit Guest Services at the front of any of the theme parks and get Key to the World cards. Write their name on their card with a Sharpie to keep them straight. 

    If you have any questions about this information or want to follow up on any detail, you can ask me directly or submit another question to planDisney.

    I hope you have nothing but clear skies, smooth sailing and a magical time as a part of this world.

    Life is the Bubbles!
