    I am planning for my family as well as our friends family for a trip to WDW in September 2020. We have one reservation together. How would this affect our My Disney experience app such as I making plans for my family and my friend for her family?

    Hi, Janessa!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with a big group means big fun, and My Disney Experience makes it easy to coordinate all of your vacation plans for your large travel party.  If you haven't already done so, you will want to add your friends who you are traveling with to your Family & Friends List in your My Disney Experience account.

    To add someone to your Family & Friends List, log into your My Disney Experience account and click on "My Family & Friends."  Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click "Add a Guest."  Next, click on "I'll enter their name and age," and enter the appropriate information.  Once you enter your friend's name and age, you will see an option to "Invite this Guest to connect."  Click on that option and enter your friend's email address.  An invitation to connect on My Disney Experience will be sent to your friend.  Once the invitation is accepted, your My Disney Experience accounts will be linked.

    Once you can see all of the members of your travel party in your My Disney Experience Family & Friends list, you can begin making plans such as dining reservations and, as you get closer to your trip, FastPass+ selections.  You will be able to make plans for the entire group, or if you would prefer, you may make plans for just the members of your family.  Even though your friends will be connected through your Family & Friends List, they will still be able to make their own plans separate from you as well.

    Did you know that if one person in your travel party purchases Memory Maker, they will be able to download not only their own Disney PhotoPass Service pictures but those of up to 25 members of their Family & Friends List?  Just be sure to click the option in your Family & Friends List to share media with the others in your party. 

    If you encounter any issues with using your My Disney Experience account to manage your plans, feel free to call the Help Center phone number for My Disney Experience, MagicBands, and FastPass+.  You can also visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again with any additional questions you might have.

    Have a magical day!
