    Do all people who are staying at the hotel need to be listed on the reservation?

    Hi Janaya,

    When staying at the Walt Disney World Resort, it's essential to ensure that every member of your party who will be occupying the hotel room is listed on the reservation. This practice ensures that each guest has their own MagicBand or Key to the World card, allowing them to unlock the door to the room and access other amenities seamlessly. Some of the pools at Disney Resorts Collection hotels such as Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort require that each Guest is listed on the reservation to enter the pool area. 

    Additionally, listing all guests on the reservation ensures that everyone can take full advantage of the perks and benefits available to Disney Resort guests. These perks include Early Theme Park Entry, allowing guests to enjoy the magic of the parks before they officially open to the public. For those staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, or other select hotels, there's the bonus of Walt Disney World Resort Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, granting extra time to experience the attractions with shorter lines and fewer crowds.

    So, whether you're embarking on an adventure with family or friends, be sure to have everyone registered for a magical stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. Have a fantastic vacation filled with unforgettable moments and cherished memories!
