    We trying to link My Disney Experience now for our entire group - 6 adults, all over 18 years old - each with our own cell phone. What is the best way for us to properly link family & friends? How should each of us access our Disney account?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Gina! Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    May is a great time to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. I hope you have some breaks built in pool side to bask in that Florida sunshine! 

    Gina, I like that you're thinking ahead and making sure your entire party is connected. Assuming that each guest has his or her own My Disney Experience account, the first thing you are going to want to do is select "Add a Guest" under the My Family & Friends tab.

    Here you will add in each person individually in your party. Once you select a birthday, another tab will pop up where you can select "Invite this Guest to connect." Here you will enter that guest's email address. Make sure to check with your family or friends as to what email address they used when they created their My Disney Experience accounts. 

    An email will be sent asking that guest to connect to your My Disney Experience account and once he or she accepts, you're ready to plan! You'll want to do this for all 5 people in your traveling party and they will want to do the same. It may be a few extra minutes of entering information and accepting email invitations now, but it will streamline your planning and most importantly allow you to make those Fastpass+ selections for your upcoming trip! 

    Gina, I hope this helps as you are making sure your group is linked up and ready to hit the parks. And... since I mentioned Fastpass+ selections, don't forget that you can book up to three attractions per day per park, 30 days in advance of your arrival (or 60 days if you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel). If you're planning on visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios, some Fastpass+ rules have changed. Now popular rides like Alien Swirling Saucers and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror are "tier 2" meaning you can book them both! Also, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run was recently added as being available to book as a tier 1 Fastpass+ selection!

    Best wishes for a Magical vacation with your group! Please come back and see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you might have,
