    how do I change a guests name?

    Hello, Phillip!

    Welcome to planDisney! We are so very glad that you are here. Planning is what we do best. And I completely understand that with all planning change is inevitable. 

    So, let's talk name change. If you are trying to change the name of the Guest on your My Disney Experience account, there are just a few simple steps to take. We will start with changing your own name. Changes made on the My Disney Experience website start with the My Profile option on the drop-down menu. Then select the Account Settings option. You will see all of your personal information on this page, including your name. You can make any necessary changes and save them when you are finished. You can also follow this same process on The My Disney Experience App. It is important to note that the name on any upcoming reservations should match your photo ID. It may seem like a fun idea to title yourself Captain Hook, but this could cause issues down the road. 

    When changing the name of a Guest other than yourself, you will need to select the My Family and Friends option from the drop-down menu. You will only be able to change the name of Guests whose account you set up. An example of this would be any children you may be traveling with. If you set up a profile for an adult Guest you would also be able to change the name here. If the Guest you are traveling with created their own account, they would need to complete the name change. 

    Now, if you are trying to change the name on a Disney Vacation package, you will need to speak with a friendly Cast Member to make those changes. You would speak to the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations department at (407) 939-1936. 

    Phillip, I hope that this information helps you make any necessary changes for your upcoming adventure. 
    See ya real soon!
