    Hi, can anyone tell me how to invite a family member to share plans when the setting says "plans managed by me" please? I can see them on my app but I cannot connect their profile so that they can see the plans.

    Hi, Katie!

    It is so exciting to hEAR that you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort very soon! The My Disney Experience section is such an easy way to plan, check your reservations, and share what you are doing with connected family and friends. Before you arrive, be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App so that you can continue to do all that and more, even when you’re in the parks!

    In order to share your plans with family and friends, those family and friends must first have their own My Disney Experience account.  Once they have created their own account they will then be able to accept your invitation to connect with them. (Tip: make sure when inviting friends and family to connect, you select the “Share Planing with this Guest” option instead of “I’ll manage all plans for this Guest”). They should receive an email notification that allows them to accept you as a Family & Friend.  Once they have done so, you will see a check mark next to their name in your Family & Friends list. From there, both parties can then manage and share plans with one another.

    I’m usually the only one in my family who makes dining reservations, and FastPass+ selections, even when I travel with my parents! We find that it is easier that way. Occasionally my dad will log in and help with the planning by adding everyone who is traveling in the party, to the reservations he is making. As you continue to plan for your visit, consider adding Memory Maker! It is fun to see all the different photos taken throughout the day, or the length of your visit, with your connected Family & Friends.

    Happy planning and remember, adventure is out there!
