    Planning a surprise birthday trip for my friends, if I add them to the reservation and they get access to the reservation through My Disney Experience, will they be able to see the nightly rate that I paid?

    Hey Kelly! Welcome to planDisney! September is almost here, and I'm super excited for you and your friends! I'm sure you guys are going to have a fantastic time together.

    Is there still time for us to become friends and plan a trip to Walt Disney World Resort together? I really hope so.

    I'd love to help you with your My Disney Experience app and this awesome surprise for your friends. The clear answer I can give is this: if you link your friends to your account and all your reservations and still have a balance to pay for your vacation, they can find more information if they want. It's not as easy as it seems, as they need to go to the Resort reservation details and find the right place to click, but it's doable.

    The easiest solution to keep this whole thing under wraps is to add your friends to the My Family and Friends list after you've paid your entire balance. That way, they will only see a $0 balance. 

    Keep in mind that you need to select all the Guests when making a reservation. However, you can create a Guest under your account for that purpose. After you pay off your balance, just link your friends back and change your reservation.

    If you have any technical difficulties, you can always call or chat with a Cast Member on the official website or app. Simply click on the "Chat With Us" tile inside the three-line menu from the bottom right side of the app. Once you are ready to share your plans with your travel buddies, they will make sure everything is good to go.

    Kelly, I really hope this helps! Don't hesitate to drop us a line anytime with more questions. We're always here to help out our awesome friends like you!
