    In my planning account, how do you match up a character to a name in your party. I have been trying to match a character to each member of you party. Any one who can guide me, I would greatly appreciate.Thank you.

    Hi Richard!

    I'm happy to hear you're using My Disney Experience to help you make plans for an upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I rely heavily on the My Disney Experience Mobile App when I'm in the parks, to keep up with my dining reservations, FastPass+, park hours, and more!

    Assigning an avatar to your friends, family, and yourself on My Disney Experience is quick and easy. On the Walt Disney World Resort website, select "My Profile" from the drop-down menu under My Disney Experience. Under your account name, it will say "Change Character" in blue writing. By selecting the link, you'll see a large list of characters to choose from, including such favorites as Cinderella, Jiminy Cricket, and the Big Cheese himself, Mickey Mouse. Once you choose your favorite, simply scroll down and select "Done". My Disney Experience will save your character, which is now your new avatar!

    It works the same for any friends and family members you're planning for. In the drop-down menu under My Disney Experience, select "My Family and Friends List". You'll see a list of all of the guests that are linked to you. If you are managing the plans of the friend/family member, it will say "Plans managed by me". By selecting "Update" to the right of the name, you'll see a link to change their character.

    It's a very similar process to change character avatars on the My Disney Experience App.

    I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have more questions as you plan your magical vacation. - Diane W.
