    Hi. I’m going on vacation with another family. How can I link their reservation to ours?

    Hello Susan,

    It's wonderful to see you here at planDisney!

    A Walt Disney World Resort vacation is always magical, and even more so when you share all the magical experiences with family and friends to create cherished shared memories.

    I think one of the best features in the My Disney Experience online app and the My Disney Experience mobile app is the Family & Friends feature. With your Family & Friends feature, you can share and manage your Walt Disney World Resort plans and activities.

    I think what you'll want to do is to set up your My Family & Friends List to add this family with whom you're vacationing. 

    I suggest you start by signing in to your My Disney Experience account and going to your My Family & Friends List. You'll see a link at the bottom of the page that prompts you to "Add a Guest." 

    If the travel party that you're adding has a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, you could use this option to enter their reservation confirmation number.  

    You could also choose the option to enter their name and email information. When you enter their name and enter their age as 18+, you'll see an option to "Invite this Guest to connect" with a prompt to enter their email address. When you send the email invitation to connect, they should receive an email with a subject that's similar to "You have a Family & Friends invitation to join in on Walt Disney World vacation planning." The email will have a button to "Accept" the invitation. When they click the "Accept" button, you all will be connected in the Family & Friends lists in your My Disney Experience accounts.

    If you'd like additional assistance with setting up your Family & Friends list, you can reach out to the Walt Disney World Internet Help Desk by calling (407) 939-4357, or by connecting with Cast Members using the online chat service

    Susan, here's wishing you all lots of magic when you vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort!

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!
