    Hello. We are visiting Disneyland next week. We have two adults and three children, two of them are under the age of 16. Our tickets and reservation are linked under my husbands Disney account. How can each child use the Disneyland app on their own?

    Hiya, Emily,

    I love letting our children enjoy themselves at the Disneyland Resort while learning some independence. So I have also helped them set up their own Disneyland accounts to allow them to make Lightning Lane selections with Genie+ and link Disney PhotoPass photos to their accounts. 

    When my daughter and I took a road trip from Utah down I-15 toward The Happiest Place on Earth for a special daddy-daughter day at Disneyland, she was only 13 years old. Since 13 is the minimum age for setting up a Disneyland account, she was “cleared for takeoff” in managing our special outing from her mobile device. The ticket numbers for some of all of the party can be linked in with the accounts of Guests on their separate devices.

    You mentioned your children under 16 years old. So I’m guessing you may be having some difficulty with setting up accounts for Guests under that age. I’m wondering if Stitch may be causing some trouble with the account server again. To help with technical issues, you may reach out to the Disneyland Resort Website Support phone line

    Tony’s Tip: But let’s say you still don't have luck with the account setup before you visit the Disneyland Resort. What are you to do if you decide your party wants to split into smaller groups at times? An easy hack you can use is to send screenshots of your children’s tickets from your husband’s account to their mobile devices. They can use those screenshots for park hopping or park re-entry and for scanning in at Lightning Lane entrances. You can also send them a screenshot of the PhotoPass code from the app if they come across PhotoPass photographers. If they want to make additional Lightning Lane selections for their tickets, a few text messages to coordinate with Dad may do the trick. It’s a win for everyone! Family communication and bonding still happen, and the teens have some independence.

    Thanks for this great question to planDisney, Emily. I hope everything works out well for you and your family. If you happen to have any more questions, we’d love for you to visit planDisney again.
