    Does everyone in my party need to create a Disney account for tickets including minor children?

    Welcome to planDisney Cheryl!

    I am excited to hear you are planning ahead for your magical Walt Disney World vacation and getting your My Disney Experience in order. All of your pre-planning is certainly going to pay off when you get to your vacation and all you have to do is sit back and soak in all of the magic!

    Everyone in your family should be on your My Disney Experience account. For example, on my account, I have my husband and 2 kids. When I go to book a vacation, I simply select their names onto my travel party. Each person in your family does not need a separate My Disney Experience account but should be included on your account for easy planning.

    If you need to add your spouse or kids, sign into your My Disney Experience account. Choose Family & Friends then go to the bottom where you have the option to Add a Guest. After they are added, you can easily link Theme Park tickets to them and add them to your room and dining reservations. Even if your child is under age 2, they should be included in your count so there is plenty of room whether it be a pack and play in your room or a highchair at a restaurant. 

    If you have another family traveling with you, they should create their own My Disney Experience account. You can then link through Family & Friends for easy planning.

    Get everyone added then let the fun begin as you book your wonderful, pixie dust filled vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
