    How can I change my last name on my account?

    Hiya Virginia,

    Welcome to planDisney! Are you getting excited about visiting Walt Disney World Resort this summer? Nothing says summer like Florida sunshine. If you don’t already carry a refillable water bottle, I highly recommend it for your trip. There are many places throughout the Theme Parks that you can fill up during the day, and it is a must for Florida’s infamous humidity.

    Now let’s get to your question! In most cases, you should be able to update your My Disney Experience profile online; however, if your Disney account is shared between Disney+, Hulu, and/or any other type of Disney account, you may need to speak to a Cast Member. Assuming your accounts are linked, log in to your My Disney Experience account first. Once you log in, scroll to the header at the top of your screen, and on the left-hand side, you should see the My Disney Experience logo. Move your cursor over the logo, and the drop-down menu should appear. Under the drop-down menu, select “Profile.” Under profile, select “Account Settings.” Once you click that, you can update your personal information, including your last name! If you have multiple Disney accounts under the same login, you cannot update online. In that case, reach out to a Cast Member in Website Support, and they will be able to assist you in changing your name across all the different platforms.

    I hope this was helpful, Virginia! Please come back to see us if you need anything else. We would love to help you plan out your itinerary with suggestions for dining, Enchanting Extras, and best practices for navigating the Theme Parks.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
