    Hi, we will be a guest of a military family next year at shades of green. How do I link that to my Disney experience in the app? Just wanted to be sure I could genie plus and make my own separate reservations at the parks. Thanks.

    Hey there, hi there, Brad! Welcome to planDisney!

    We have stayed often at Shades of Green, the Armed Forces Recreation Center resort located at Walt Disney World. It's a lovely resort, and you get many of the benefits of being a Walt Disney World resort guest. You'll be able to take advantage of Early Entry in the mornings, and the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. Another huge perk is being able to make your dining reservations 60 days in advance, for up to 10 days of your vacation. That might help you score some hard to get dining experiences

    You should be able to link your reservation in your My Disney Experience app using the reservation confirmation number. On your phone, click My Future Plans, then scroll down to where you see the Missing a Reservation message. There should be a Link to Account button right there. Once you hit that, you'll see a menu that offers the option to Link Hotel. That's the one you need.

    The next screen prompts you to enter your reservation confirmation number, as well as the last name of the guest listed on the reservation. You may want to verify with your sponsoring family whether the reservation is in their name or yours so you can successfully link the reservation.

    You can purchase theme park passes with the Disney Genie+ service already attached, although the March 2023 calendar hasn't opened up just yet. When it does, don't forget to book your theme park reservation once you have your tickets. 

    I hope I've helped with your planning, Brad!
