    We are to check into our resort in 5 days. My daughter is staying at a different Disney resort with a friend. Her park ticket is linked to my Disney experience app. How does the other parent link my daughter to their hotel reservation?

    Hey, there! Hi, there! Ho, there! I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney, Chelsea, where you are as welcome as can be.

    It sounds like you have quite a magical adventure planned at Walt Disney World Resort this week! The My Disney Experience App has gadgets and gizmos aplenty that will help you all navigate your vacation. Let's get all the whoozits and whatzits set up so you are ready to be a part of this world.

    I am assuming you have a MyDisney account for your child which shows up on your Family & Friends List with the note "Plans Managed by Me." With a few steps, her friend's parent can have access to her profile to make plans.

    1. On the My Disney Experience App, open the menu (the "≡" at the bottom of the screen); scroll to "Account;" and select "Profile."
    2. On the Profile screen, select the tab for "Family & Friends List."
    3. Scroll to "Want to Share Your List?" and set it to "Yes, share my Family & Friends list."
    4. Scroll to "+ Add a Guest" near the bottom of the screen.
    5. Select "I'll enter the name and age." You will need the name and email that the parent used on their MyDisney account. Follow the prompts and enter the information.
    6. Ask the parent to check their email and accept the invitation.
    7. Have them open their app and follow the steps above to get to "+ Add a Guest."
    8. Select "Find through me connected Guest," choose your daughter's profile, and follow the prompts.
    The parent may be able to modify the resort reservation online to add your daughter. If this is not an option, they would need to call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations to do this. Once she is added, she will be able to use her MagicBand+ or Key to the World card to get into the hotel room, and you will be able to see her plans in your app.

    I hope this works for you. If not, with your trip so close, Cast Members at the resort will be able to assist. If you have any other questions, please come back by planDisney.

    Life is the bubbles!
