    Planning a surprise trip for my boyfriend. I have annual pass, but my boyfriend's never been. I'd like to set it up, buy his tickets and make reservations. What's the best way to go about it? Can I make an account for him with my email?

    Hi Ashley,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! So excited to hEAR that you’re planning a surprise for your boyfriend’s birthday. I’m sure he’ll enjoy his first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Since you’re an Annual Passholder and you likely have a My Disney Experience account, you can just buy his ticket under your account! When you’re ready, sign into your account and go to the ticket portion of the website to begin the purchase. You’ll have the option to select the length of the ticket and whether it’s a Park Hopper or one Park per day ticket. During the process, you’ll also be able to add your boyfriend’s name to the ticket which will add him to your “Family and Friends List”. Once purchased, you should see your boyfriend’s ticket under the “Tickets and Passes” section of your My Disney Experience mobile app (where your Annual Pass is held)!

    After the purchase, you’ll want to make your Disney Park Pass reservations for the both of you. At this time all guests need to make Disney Park Pass reservations for each guest for every day they’d like to go to the Theme Parks. Since you’re heading to the Walt Disney World Resort soon, I suggest you book these immediately because the reservations are subject to availability. 

    As you prepare, remember that there are a number of ways to celebrate a birthday at Disney! Take a look at some of the dining reservation options as well as the Enchanted Extras Collection for some fun celebratory experiences. If you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you could order a celebratory basket or other items from Disney Floral & Gifts. And definitely don’t forget the complimentary birthday button from Guest Relations or most merchandise locations. He could even have a second button since he’s a first time visitor!

    I know that was a ton of information, but I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you plan this birthday surprise. If you have any other planning or vacation questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
