    Hi we are a group of 8 coming to WDW can I restrict the app so once plans are made no one other than me can make changes /cancellations? I don’t want my mother; whom is not great with technology to be able to make changes my accident !

    Hi Jamie,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! As the manager of all plans on our trips, I completely understand your dilemma. This is a tough one.

    I believe you have two options, neither of them is ideal. The safest, but not perhaps the friendliest option would be to simply not share plans with her through My Disney Experience. I always create a chart of our plans that includes our flight information, resort hotel, Fast Pass+ plans and dining reservation times and locations. I print that chart and take it with us in case the online systems are down at any point during our trip. You could also print a similar list from My Disney Experience. 

    A second option would be to share plans with her but not connect anyone else from the group in her "My Family & Friends List." She could potentially change plans for herself and you, but not everyone else. In my experience, dining reservations are harder to modify than Fast Pass+ selections. Once I make a dining reservation, I am the person who controls that reservation. 

    When my mom travels with us, she does not have a My Disney Experience Account. I just talk her through all of our plans and print an itinerary. It is much easier!

    Jamie, despite the potential for unwanted modifications to your My Disney Experience plans, traveling with your mom and the rest of your family is going to be a blast! Remember to make your dining reservations. With such a large party, you will need them. Finally, with such a large group, I would also suggest Memory Maker. Your entire party could share one Memory Maker. We usually take between 100 and 200 photos. Having digital access to our ride photos and videos is amazing!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
