    My parents booked hotel for our group hotel rooms, and the reservation is under their name. When we go to link hotel reservation on app to get early access, it only comes up with their names as options. Do we need to add our names to the hotel reservation?

    Hello, Gabrielle and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you for bringing your excellent question to the most magical planning group on earth it would be my pleasure to offer some advice so you can continue with your plans to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Gabrielle, you should indeed add your travel party names to the existing Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservations to manage all planning before and during your visit via My Disney Experience online or via the My Disney Experience App. Please be mindful of the hotel Guest Room capacities, and that extra charges may be incurred for extra Guests. Once this step has been completed, you will be able to assign valid theme park admission to each member listed in the hotel reservations (if tickets are not part of the package) to further manage your plans for securing the required Disney Park Pass Reservations, booking Disney Dining Reservations, participating in the Disney Genie+ Service and much more!

    To modify an existing Walt Disney World Resort vacation package or room booking that was booked directly through The Walt Disney Company, please sign into your Disney account online, access the My Disney Experience planning tab on the top right of the main page and select, My Plans – Dining, Resort Hotel and Tickets. From there please select Resort Hotel and look for a modification option (Change Reservation) to add the names of each Guest. If you don’t see this modification option, then you will need to contact Walt Disney World Resort – Hotel Reservations for assistance from a Cast Member. If you booked through a travel professional, or a third-party vendor then you will need to contact them for modifications.

    It’s a good idea for everyone to create an account on the My Disney Experience App to store their reservations and be able to access their valid theme park admission from their physical theme park admission card, their Disney MagicMobile pass, or their valid MagicBand/MagicBand+ just in case anyone needs to break off from the group.

    I hope this information is helpful, Gabrielle and I wish you all a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney Wishes!
