    How can I choose a character for my family list?

    Hello Ericka!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Ever since Disney's Moana came out, my daughter has been asking me to change her My Disney Experience.  Since the 60-day FastPass+ selection window for our upcoming April vacation just opened, I had a chance to alter my family list character icons accordingly.  Allow me to walk you through the process as I did.

    On a personal computer, sign into your My Disney Experience Account. Under the category for "My Family & Friends List" you can update or add guests to your list.  When you select a family member or friend, you will notice the option to "Change Character" under their personal information.  From there, select your favorite Disney character for your family member or friend.

    On a mobile device, sign into the My Disney Experience App and select "My Account" in the drop-down menu.  When you select someone under your "Family & Friends List", the option to "Change Character" will provide you with a similar option to alter their Disney character.

    While on the My Disney Experience App, you can also start planning future Endlessly Magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, make Advanced Dining Reservations, manage your MagicBands, and more.

    If I have misunderstood your inquiry and require alternate explanations, please feel free to resend an inquiry and I will do all I can to help you choose a character. 

    Happy Selecting!
