    How do I get control of MyDisney Family and Friends to schedule their day?

    Hi Evelyn,

    I am delighted to help you plan a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. Looks like you have already created a My Disney Experience account. If your family and friends have their own My Disney Experience accounts, you will need to connect with them through the My Family & Friends List. To connect, enter their name and age and then select the option to send an email to connect. Be sure to send that email to the email address they have associated with their My Disney Experience account. 

    If your family & friends do not have their own My Disney Experience accounts, you can create profiles that you manage in your My Disney Experience account. I manage profiles for my girls and husband. Their Annual Passes, for example, are linked to the profiles that I manage. When you have your family and friends all linked, you can easily select them when making plans like Disney Park Pass system selections and advanced dining reservations. If your family and friends have their own My Disney Experience accounts, you will need to make sure that you select the option to Share All Plans.

    As you continue to make plans, I highly recommend advanced dining reservations. They simply are a must-do. Use the My Disney Experience Mobile App as you plan and when you get to the parks. We have also come to enjoy how easy it is to use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. Just remember to check the arrival time window before you order just to be sure that it fits with your plans.

    Evelyn, I do hope you get those family and friends linked in My Disney Experience. I love being able to plan with everyone. We are so happy to welcome you to the magic!

    Magic and memories,
