    I'm connected to my friends for a Disney vacation in April, But I cannot view our hotel reservations or dinning reservations that are under their names, under future plans or anything.

    Hello and welcome to planDisney Casey!

    Connecting to Family & Friends on your Disney account is easy to do, but many unintended over sites do happen which prevent those connected to our travel party from seeing our reservations and plans.  

    Casey, all you have to do is ask your friends to go into their Family & Friends list and change their settings to “All My Plans” or “Only Plans We Share” so that you will be able to see dining, some purchases and any event reservations, another word, the activities you all will have in common during your stay. Anyone connected to your Family & Friends list will also be able to see and purchase your Disney PhotoPass Service attraction photos, videos and any other digital material. 

    What I like to do after each Walt Disney World Resort vacation, just to keep things neat and tidy in My Disney Experience account, is to stop sharing my information with people beyond my immediate family by going into my Family & Friends list and selecting the option “Remove From This List.” Now I just have to be as vigilant and clear out my dozens of MagicBands which adorn my Christmas tree as a MagicBand chain.

    During your visit, I encourage you to convince everyone to download the My Disney Experience app which will be helpful during your visit. There are many features in the app, namely the ability to store a payment method to be able to enjoy Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering and you’ll have the option for the Disney Genie+ service on the day of your theme park visit just after midnight, or when you arrive in the theme park when you see the Lightning Lane entrance arrival time in the attraction list in the “My Day” of your app. This service will save you time waiting in lines because you’ll be able to select an arrival window for attractions that offer a Lightning Lane entrance. And, Casey, please don’t forget those Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations.

    Casey, I hope this information helps you out, and I wish everyone a fabulous time at Walt Disney World Resort - go and chase those dreams!
