    My family recently reserved our day in Disney because we already had existing tickets but my friend plans on buying a ticket so she can attend with us. Do we have to add her to our existing party for that day, if so how?

    Hey there Maricela!

    Thanks for taking the time to visit us at planDisney today, we’re so happy to help! Oh, I just love visiting the Disneyland Resort with not only my family but extended family and friends. When we book our visits, I usually plan for my family of 4 and anyone else who plans on joining us, will book on their own but join our family for everything else.

    Before your friend goes ahead and purchases tickets, I do recommend that you all first check the Theme Park Reservation availability calendar first. That way you all can make sure there is theme park availability, on the day the rest of you are already booked, before they purchase their ticket. If there is, then I do recommend that as soon as your friend purchases their ticket, they link it to their Disney account so that they may go ahead and make their theme park reservations to match your existing reservation.

    Maricela, I hope this helps finalize your existing plans. As you may have already heard dining reservations at the Disneyland Resort are also now available. Just make sure to include the total number of Guests in your party when making your reservations, including your friend who is joining last minute!

    Thanks again for visiting us today and remember to always believe in the Magic!
