    My friends and I are going to Disney World. Can we buy our tickets separately and then make park reservations as a group?

    Magical Greetings, Lauren, from a fellow Illinoisian! Thank you for coming to planDisney with your question about your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World. 

    Heading to WDW with friends is so much fun! Over the years, I have had the pleasure of making memories with not only my family, but with SO many of my Disney-minded friends. It’s super easy to link up your MyDisneyExperience accounts so that you can make plans together and see all the photos you and your friends take in the parks! 

    Like I mentioned above, you will want to make sure that each adult traveling to Walt Disney World sets up a MyDisneyExperience account, either on the computer or the smartphone app. Once that is done, you can add each friend under your “My Family & Friends List” on your profile. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “Add a Guest”. This will direct you to a page that asks, “How do you want to add this guest?”. You will then select “I’ll enter their name and age”, enter their name and “18+” as the age, and select the “Invite this guest to connect” bubble. Here, you will need the email that they used for their MyDisneyExperience. 

    Once all that is done, your friend will have to accept your invitation to connect. They will receive an email that you want to connect, and then a little number appears at the top of the screen when they go to the MyDisneyExperience website (it will be next to the “welcome, Lauren” in a little bubble. Click on that and then accept the invitation. 

    When you are all connected and have purchased your tickets and loaded them into your MyDisneyExperience accounts, one person can make the theme park reservations for the whole group! They can also make dining reservations and select everyone! The app will come in handy for you all once you are in the parks, too. 

    I hope this helps with planning your upcoming visit to the most magical place on Earth! Please visit us again if you have more questions! 

    Happy Traveling,

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
