    I bought a ticket for my nephew after I had booked fastpass for my family. Is there a way for me to add him to our group?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nonato!

    I just got back today from a great trip to Walt Disney World Resort and something I'm missing the most right now is the ability to skip lines with FastPass+. I could have used one for the security queue at the airport! I know that one of the things I'm going to miss the most is that magical chime when I tap my MagicBand to enter my favorite attractions.

    How fun that you've added your nephew to your traveling party! If you want to add him to your FastPass+ selections you can do one of two things: you can cancel and rebook your whole family's FastPass+ selections with him as a part of your party, or you can try and find an individual FastPass+ for your nephew for times that match up with when you're already planning on riding. I recommend the latter because it's much easier to find a FastPass+ time for a single rider than it is to find several for a larger group, especially this close to your vacation.

    If you're not able to find FastPass+ selections for your nephew that match up exactly with the start and end times of your current bookings, there's no need to worry. Your FastPass+ is valid for a window of one hour, so if you can find one that starts within the time frame you already have, you will all be able to ride together. For example, if your family has a FastPass+ selection for Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom Park from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., get your nephew a booking with a start time somewhere in that hour. If he gets one that starts at 11:30 a.m., you will all be able to ride together at that time, even though you did not book the FastPass+ selections as a group. If you're not able to find one right away, keep checking! Guests are changing their plans all the time using the My Disney Experience app, so you never know what kind of magic might happen in the next week.

    Have a magical day, Nonato!
