    My daughter, grandkids and I are visiting in October. My son has decided to join us. He has made his reservations and purchased tickets. Is there a way to add him to My Disney Experience so that dining plans, etc. can be made together?

    Hey there, Sharon, and welcome back to planDisney! You’re Disney Vacation is approaching faster than it may seem. And if you’ve already told your grandkids, then I’m sure they’re asking you daily if the time has arrived. Just hang in there, it’ll all be worth it when you get to see Mickey in his Disney's Animal Kingdom safari gear! The addition of your son will help ensure that your visit is the perfect family affair!

    Sharon, your family can use the Family & Friends list within the My Disney Experience account to coordinate plans across your entire group. Once you add your son to your Friends & Family list, you will be able to make dining reservations, book Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances, mobile order food, and more for the entire party! This tool makes planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with friends a breeze. 

    You can follow the steps below to add your son to your Friends & Family list in the My Disney Experience app:

    • Open the My Disney Experience app 
    • Select the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of the home screen
    • Scroll down and select “My Profile”
    • Select the Friends & Family list tab
    • Scroll down and “Add a Guest”

    There are three different options to add a Guest to your list, so choose the one that’s most convenient for you and complete the prompts. Now you’re all set!

    I hope this helps, Sharon! Soon you’ll be immersed in the beauty of Walt Disney World!

    Until Next Time,
