    Hello! Would I be able to add my dad to our hotel as a guest and have him take the shuttle with us from the airport? I did not include him within my reservation since I used the package, and he will be purchasing his park tickets on a day to day basis.

    Hi Ariel,

    Wow, your trip is just around the corner, and it sounds awesome that your dad can join you too. I remember a trip several years ago when my dad tagged along. We had a great time.

    To start, you have to add your dad to your Disney resort reservation. If you booked directly, simply call a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936, or your travel agent if you used one to book it. If you booked a room-only reservation and purchased tickets in advance, you can add him to your reservation and then you can purchase tickets directly via the Theme Park Tickets page. Keep in mind that you may need to move resorts if there’s no capacity for him in the same room, and there’s a small nightly fee for three or more adults in the same room.

    Now, if you booked a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, note that these already include theme park tickets for all members of your party, and this would include tickets for your dad, when you add him. You could change your package and reduce the number of days for your tickets and add these after you arrive as needed, however this would reduce the number of FastPass+ reservations you would be able to make in advance. If you make these changes within 30 days of arrival, there might be a fee associated with this.

    Once his added to the reservation, you can contact Disney's Magical Express to add him. Hoping for a great family vacation. See you real soon!
