It would not be easier to add 4 names/people? That sounds so easy! I have not added people in a long time but don’t remember it being cumbersome?!
Easiest thing to do is to go into MDE and create “phantom” profiles for each of you. I have extra tix stored on phantom profiles and I use each person's middle name so it’s easier to keep track.

After your trip, you can then reassign the tix from phantoms to regular profiles.

Don’t mess with worrying about which tix might get used. No need to go to guest services. Get it straight ahead of time on your end while you can.

I don't know if someone else has mentioned this or not. If you go to Guest Services (imho: the 2 best locations with the most proficient and savvy people are right inside HS, and inside City Hall at MK). They can fix you up and rearrange the tickets however you'd like including issuing a new X-day ticket out of your existing if you are splitting like you are. The second best way is to create phantom family names but they have to be listed as children under 18 because there could come a time when you have to prove an adult lives at your physical address if you are getting DVC discounts.

Yes, that's the easiest and "safest" way. Too many reports of the ordering not working. You can do it all at home and be done - no waiting in a GS line.

The last time I had to do this I didn't even need to go to Guest Services. I went to the gate, the cast member scanning tickets waved another cast member over who had an Ipad, and they scanned my MB and ordered my tickets.

We all have different definitions of "easiest."

Cheers.
