    I am getting married before my trip. Do I need to put my current last name or future last name?

    Hiya, Briana!

    Welcome to planDisney! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! It sounds as if you will be having a truly special year. A visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth after the most magical day of your life is a great way to start the year. And if you are traveling with your new spouse, you will be able to begin creating a lifetime of memories together. You can even pick up complimentary Happily Every After buttons at the front desk of your Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel or Guest Relations location in the theme parks. This is a great way to let Cast Members know that you are celebrating something truly special. 

    When purchasing tickets, or creating hotel and vacation package reservations I recommend using the name that will on your photo ID at the time of your travel. If your new name will be on your official ID when you arrive, that is the name you would want to use when booking your accommodations. If you are unsure, I suggest using your maiden name. If you need to make changes to your account, including name changes, before you arrive you can do so through your My Disney Experience account on the Walt Disney World website. Select the Profile option from the My Disney Experience menu to get started. Click on Account Settings and make any necessary name changes on the following page. This may not automatically change your reservation details. If this is the case, I would recommend reaching out to a friendly Cast Member by phone with Disney Resort Hotel Reservations. They will be able to assist you with any changes you were unable to make online. 

    I hope your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
