    Would I be able to add people to the group who are in a different hotel than me ?

    Hi Grace! Welcome to planDisney. It’s always so great to be able to help a fellow New Yorker!

    Oh my goodness, your Walt Disney World vacation is less than two months away! How excited are you to know that you’ll be visiting during the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival? If you’re able to head over to EPCOT to check out the festival, you’ll be in for such a treat with live entertainment, food, and so much more! But, let's not forget that The World's Most Magical Celebration in honor of Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary is still in full swing! So, how lucky are you to be able to enjoy two fabulous events in one trip? I have to admit, I'm more than a little jealous!

    Grace, it sounds like you're looking to link some friends staying at a different resort to your My Disney Experience account so you can plan your trip as a group. Well, I have great news for you; you can absolutely do that! You will just need to get them added to your Friend & Family list, and you’re good to go. So, let’s get started!

    • First, have your group log into their My Disney Experience app and open the menu by clicking on the three stacked lines in the bottom right corner.
    • Next, scroll down and click on "My Profile" and select "Show My Linking Code."
    • Have them jot down the six-character manual code on this screen, and send it your way.
    • Once you have their manual linking code, open your My Disney Experience app and navigate to "My Profile."
    • Then, toggle to "Family & Friends List" and select "Add a Guest."
    • Click on "Scan their linking code," then "Manually Enter a Code," submit, and you are all set!

    Do keep in mind that the manual linking codes are only valid for 30 minutes each, so you may want to schedule a time with your friends to complete the steps above together, so the code does not expire.

    Now that your group is all linked up, you can add them to your Advanced Dining Reservations, make Disney Genie+ Selections as a group during your visit, and more! Isn’t the My Disney Experience app such a nifty tool? It really is like having the magic of Walt Disney World right in the palm of your hand!

    I can't wait for your adventure to begin! I just know you will make memories that will last a lifetime! Please do visit us again with any other Walt Disney World vacation planning questions that may pop up! We are always here to help you make the absolute most of your vacation experience.

    Bye for now!
