    Hi In the planning stages right now. Making a profile for mom who has the same name and the site cautions me against it for tickets etc. later. Is this going to be a problem? For the airport I put my middle initial and not hers (Its the same as well)

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

    I am so happy to hEAR that you will have the opportunity to visit the Walt Disney World Resort with your mom.  As you plan your vacation, be sure to check out these great Disney Parks Moms Panel tips for maximizing your magic when traveling with the entire family.

    As you add everyone in your travel party to your My Disney Experience Family & Friends List, I would recommend that you find a way to differentiate between family members who have the same name.  If there is no difference in the names listed on your profile and your mom's, it could cause some confusion when assigning theme park tickets to guests or making FastPass+ selections.  To differentiate between your My Disney Experience profile and your mom's, you could do what you mentioned and list a middle initial for one of you.  You could also enter a different title for each of you, for example, "Ms." for you and "Mrs." for your mom.  My Disney Experience also gives you the option of selecting a suffix for each person's name.  You could label your profile "Jr." or "II" and your mom's "Sr." or "I."  Selecting a different Disney character's picture for each of your profiles will also help you keep things straight when making plans on your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    If we can answer any other questions for you as you plan your vacation, please visit us again.  Have a magical day!
