    I’m not sure how to set it up so that a friend can make the plans for our party.

    Hi there, Charlene! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy, I'm thrilled that you're making plans to travel to Walt Disney World Resort this summer! There's nothing better than visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth with people you care about and I couldn't be more excited for you. I have my own trip planned for this May with some of my best friends and I'm counting down the days (well, more like the minutes)! I'd love to help you put the finishing touches of pixie dust on your magical vacation. Let's go!

    Charlene, it sounds like you have a friend who wants to set up some plans for your group. If your friend is a part of your travel party, this should be easy as bibbidi bobbidi boo!
    • First, make sure that your friend has made a My Disney Experience account.
    • Connect all the Guests in your travel party to each other through your Family & Friends List. Personally, I have the best experience when selecting "Import from a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation" after clicking "Add a Guest." Your friend should also make sure that all Guests are connected on their Family & Friends List, too! 
    • If you are currently managing your friend's plans, you'll want to share planning so you can both co-manage the plans. If you see the words "Plans managed by me" next to your friend's name in your Family & Friends List, click "Update," then "Share Planning with..." Once they accept the invitation on their end, they'll be able to co-manage your plans.
    • When your friend makes advance dining reservations, they should be able to select the Guests in your travel party (as long as they're connected through Family & Friends). Ta-da! You're one step closer to your magical vacation!
    I hope I was able to point you in the right direction today, Charlene! If you have any other questions, or if I've misunderstood your question, please write to us again. Of course, you can always call a Cast Member, too! A little like real-life fairy godparents, Cast Members will do everything they can to take a peek at your reservations and provide any next steps available to you.

    See ya real soon!
