    I booked a reservation and inlaws have a reservation that coincides with our trip. We've both linked with our father in law (my MIL does not have acct yet), are there any other steps we need to take to insure we get the same fastpasses, etc?

    Hi Veronica,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am thrilled that you are using My Disney Experience. It is absolutely my favorite vacation-planning tool of all time!

    Congratulations on successfully linking your My Disney Experience Accounts. Now, you also need to be sure that everyone has valid theme park tickets linked to those accounts. Also, check the number of days for each ticket. If, for example, you have five-day tickets and your in-laws have three-day tickets, you can make Fast Pass+ selections for them, but only for the number of days they have valid theme park tickets. To link your theme park tickets, login to My Disney Experience, click on "My Reservations and Tickets" and then click on "Link Tickets." If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will also receive complimentary MagicBands. Be sure to link those MagicBands to your My Disney Experience Accounts. To link MagicBands, login to My Disney Experience and click on "MagicBands and Cards."

    I always manage Fast Pass+ selections and dining reservations for our family. It makes keeping up with everyone a lot easier. It also makes it easier to change plans. In the parks, I use the My Disney Experience Mobile App. With the app, I can modify or add Fast Pass+ selections, get directions and check wait times for rides and attractions. We live by the app! But, I also create a chart of our plans for the week. That chart includes our flight information, resort confirmation number, all of our Fast Pass+ selections and dining reservations (with confirmation numbers). I like having a hard copy just in case the technology temporarily goes down while we are in the parks!

    Veronica, it sounds like you are well on your way to planning a magical adventure!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
    Donyell
