    Hi all! I’m planning a surprise visit for my boyfriend. Am I able to book a visit for us both WITHOUT his visibility on the app or notifications via email?

    Hi Lauren,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    HOORAY for surprise trips to the Walt Disney World Resort. That's it. You are now in the lead for significant other of the year! As long as you all are not sharing plans, you should be able to keep the secret. If you are connected through the My Family & Friends List via My Disney Experience and are currently sharing plans, you can modify that. Simply log into your My Disney Experience account, go to your Family & Friends List, and find your boyfriend's name. Then, click on Update and Remove from This List. To be absolutely certain, you might also create a managed profile for him in your account. Once you create that profile, you can use that profile for the vacation package reservation. If you all share a My Disney Experience account, you may need to create another account linked to a different email address.

    As you plan, make sure that you plan early. All Guests now need Disney Park Pass system reservations for each day they plan to enter a theme park. To make those park pass reservations, you need to have theme park tickets linked in your My Disney Experience account. Once you get within your advanced dining reservation window, I also suggest that you make dining reservations. Although Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering is great, my family enjoys having some guaranteed times to dine, especially since it gives us a break from the weather outside.

    Lauren, plan, plan, plan! Once the secret is out, you may need to reconnect to your boyfriend's actual My Disney Experience account if he has one, reassign park tickets to that profile, and call a Cast Member to change the profile on the resort hotel reservation. Make sure you get some matching gear and pack accordingly. We cannot wait to welcome you to the magic!

    Magic and memories,
