    16 of us. 5 different family groups. Should we buy tickets on our own and then + them together in My Disney experience? Or can my dad buy all of them and then we can take our tickets and use them as a family? What would be the best way for planning?

    Hi, Mark!

    Big extended family trips to Walt Disney World can be so much fun!  You are going to make so many treasured memories when you visit with your family this summer.  Be sure to purchase Memory Maker so that you can get lots of photos of your whole group to help you relive the magic of this vacation for years to come.

    You will be happy to know that My Disney Experience makes planning a trip with a large group easy.  Whether you have one person purchase all of the tickets for your group or have each individual family buy their own, you will still be able to plan together with your My Disney Experience accounts.  

    If you have your dad buy all of the tickets, he can create a My Disney Experience account and list all of you under his account.  This would basically put him in charge of managing the plans through My Disney Experience.  If each individual family wishes to purchase their own tickets, you can link everyone's My Disney Experience accounts through the Family & Friends List.  By having everyone linked together this way, you can still plan together for things like dining reservations and FastPass+.

    No matter which way you decide to go about making your plans, be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app.  The app will be a valuable tool both in the planning stage of your trip and once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    See ya real soon!
