    Hello! I made a reservation for a friend and her family with our DVC Points. I put her name in the reservation. She is not a DVC Member....yet 😉. Do I need to do anything else to ensure she has a seamless check-in and stay?

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, Donna!

    You are as welcome as can be here at planDisney! How exciting that you are giving the gift of magic to your friend and her family. My parents gifted us a Disney Vacation Club Resort stay for our honeymoon and we became Members the next spring.  It's a wonderful way to spread a little pixie dust wherever you go.

    Donna, once you put your friend's name as the Guest, she should be all set and the reservation becomes hers. If any modifications or changes need to be made to the reservation, you - the Member - would need to do that as Member Services can only speak to you since its your account.

    However, once you have the reservation number, share it with your friend and then she can link that to her My Disney Experience account. This will enable her to make Disney Dining Reservations and Enchanting Extras Reservations beginning 60 days in advance for the entirety of her stay. She can also check in on the app in advance of her arrival. This saves time as she won't need to stop by the Front Desk, and once her room is ready, she can go straight to her room using the My Disney Experience app.  

    I hope this helps you, Donna. If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, stop back and see me and I'll be so happy to help.

    Magically Yours,
