    My friends and I are planning on booking a trip for next summer. Does the Family and Friends Sharing allow us to all pay our parts of the bill?

    Hi, Amber!

    Welcome to planDisney with an excellent question. I have made pixie-dusted Walt Disney World Resort memories over the years while visiting with friends, and I am happy to hear that you will experience the magic with your crew as well!

    You are making an excellent choice by making reservations at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. You will stay right in the middle of the magic and enjoy great benefits such as proximity to the theme parks, which is one of my favorite perks while traveling with friends and family because it allows folks to come and go as they please. I have friends who like taking a break in the afternoon back at the resort, some are early birds and always plan to arrive at the theme parks as early as possible, and others like to explore Disney Springs and other Disney Resort hotels. In addition, Disney complimentary transportation allows travel parties to split us and travel safely throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Please note that one Guest is always the main point of contact in a reservation (usually the person responsible for making the reservation). It is not possible to split the cost of the stay within My Disney Experience for each Guest to pay their share separately. When I travel with my friends, one person makes the reservation, and others send this Guest the amount they owe for the stay at least one week before the final payment is due via PayPal or Venmo. 

    planDisney tip: During your stay, if you decide to use MagicBands to charge food and merchandise purchases to your room account, you can stop by Front Desk at your Disney Resort hotel, and Cast Members will be glad to link a different credit card to each of the MagicBands.

    I hope this information is helpful, Amber! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and be sure to check our Panel Extras as you plan your visit with your friends!

    Best magical wishes,
