    We have two families, each with 6 people total. Can we combine them together on Friends and Family to ride rides together? Or does it max out at 10 people?

    Hi Kara, welcome back to planDisney!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is in the 10-day forecast, which is a very big deal! Make sure to pack sunglasses because I'm seeing plenty of sunshine heading your way. Sunglasses are also needed at the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts for all of the star power on stage during the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series.

    There is currently no limit on the number of people you can connect with as Family & Friends in My Disney Experience. The more the merrier, if you ask me! Honing in on your specific question, Kara, you can book Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions for up to 12 members of your Family & Friends List at a time, as long as they have valid admission, a theme park reservation, and Disney Genie+ service linked to their account. According to my calculations, you're traveling with an ideal party size! 12 is also the maximum number for making theme park reservations, purchasing Disney Genie+ service, and purchasing Individual Lightning Lanes. 

    You can purchase Disney Genie+ service anytime after midnight each park day via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Tip Board). I recommend purchasing by 6:45 a.m. so you can book your first Genie+ Lighting Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. on the dot. All Guests can book their first Genie+ Lightning lane attraction at 7:00 a.m., regardless of their accommodations. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can purchase Individual Lightning Lanes beginning at 7:00 a.m.; all others may purchase at park opening.

    While we're on the topic of numbers, I'll also share that one Memory Maker purchase allows you to view and download Disney PhotoPass photos of up to 25 members of your Family & Friends that share media with you. I highly recommend this souvenir for your trip; purchase at least three days in advance for a lower price.

    As your packing continues, Kara, let planDisney continue to unpack your trip-planning questions.

    Choose magic,
