    I am getting two rooms, most likely at the Dolphin Hotel. My parents will be in one room and I will be in other. How do I get them on my MDE app so I can make dining reservations for them?

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for coming to see us here at planDisney, and thanks for your question!

    If you're looking to make and manage plans with other Guests in your travel party, you'll want to use the Family & Friends features that are a part of your My Disney Experience account. Connecting everyone together through Family & Friends makes for an easy way to set up and share reservations such a dining reservations and theme park reservations. 

    Simply start by signing in to your "My Family & Friends List" page. You can use the easy "Add a Guest" feature to add others to your list. There are a few options for adding Guests to your "My Family & Friends List." One option will let you find Guests with whom you're already connected. Another option, and one that might be a good choice in your case, is to import the Guest information from a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. You can simply enter the reservation confirmation number and the last name of the Guest on the reservation. A third option lets you enter a Guest's name and age, and then invite that Guest to connect with you by entering their email address. That Guest will receive an email invitation to connect with you, and when they accept the invitation, they will be joined to your Family & Friends List.

    Your Family & Friends List is also conveniently available in the My Disney Experience mobile app. Simply tap the main menu icon (the three stacked lines in the lower right) and tap the "My Profile" link. You'll then see the "Family & Friends List" tab where you can use its features.

    Kelly, here's wishing you and your parents a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
