I am looking for some input on how to best manage reservations for a large group while planning, and then how to manage FPP and dining charges while in the park.
Current situation: I am the only one with an MDE account (read the only Disney planner) so everyone is listed under me as a guest I created. “Everyone” includes 5 other adults and one 2 year old. At this point we have ADRs booked but no FPPs.
My question is whether or not I should push my Mom and sis to start their MDE accounts. They would each then have their own spouse to manage, and I would continue managing mine. Where I’m thinking it might be useful is two places:
Booking FPPs in the park. Thinking it may be helpful to have three phones searching for FPPs for 2 people at a time rather than one phone trying to book 7. I’m predicting that we will be using the rolling FPP strategy quite a bit.
Splitting up checks when mobile ordering.
My mom is going to need to manage the FPPs when it comes to our 30 day mark (off property this time). If we are already connected, will she be able to book for everyone easily? She has never done it before and is already a little bit nervous.
Is it possible for people to create their own MDE after I’ve already created ADRs and tickets and assigned them to people?
Will I (as master planner) still be able to manage the other two husband’s plans if they are housed under my Mom and my sister rather than being housed under me?
Should I just scrap it all and use one account? In this case, my biggest question is can we have three phones logged into one MDE account when searching for FPs in park? Can we split checks when mobile ordering?
**If there is a way for me to manage it all, this will always be their preference.
