    How do I add a friend for an upcoming vacation?

    Hello there! Welcome to planDisney. We’re so glad you’re here, Bonnie!

    I know it may not seem like it quite yet, but your Walt Disney World Vacation really is SO soon! I promise, it’s going to feel like you blinked, and suddenly you're off to enjoy Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary Celebration with your family. And what a party it is! You're so lucky to get to visit during this special time with the extra sprinklings of pixie dust all around Walt Disney World in honor of The World's Most Magical Celebration. But, of course, you won't want to miss the limited-time special EARidescent treats available through the parks, including the Opening Day Celebration Cake available at Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom Park. Milk chocolate mousse with a raspberry center? Count me in!

    Bonnie, linking the members of your party to your My Disney Experience is actually super simple! But before you can get them added to your Friends & Family list, you will need them to share their unique linking code with you. To do so, have them log into their My Disney Experience app and open the menu (the three stacked lines on the bottom right corner). From there, ask them to scroll down, click on "My Profile," and select "Show My Linking Code." Then, have them jot down the six-character manual code on this screen and send it your way.

    Now that you have their manual linking code, you can get them linked to your account. First, log into your My Disney Experience app and navigate to "My Profile." Next, toggle to "Family & Friends List" and select "Add a Guest." Finally, click "Scan their linking code," then "Manually Enter a Code." Press submit, and you are all set!

    One important thing to note is that the manual linking codes are only valid for 30 minutes each. So, I would make sure to coordinate a time with your group to complete the steps above to avoid the code expiring and having to start again.

    I hope I have been able to help you today! Please feel free to stop by again if you have any other vacation planning questions. We here at planDisney just love helping our fellow Guests make the most of their Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    Until next time,
