    I am planning a surprise trip for my sister. She has her own MDE account. How do I keep her from seeing that I am planning this when I book tickets, dining, and fast passes?

    Hi Cristin,

    Thank you for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. How exciting to know you are planning a surprise with your sister. Is it coming up soon? I'm sure you cannot wait!

    I remember when my kids were younger and we would surprise them at the last minute with a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. It's so much fun! And I think there's a way you can keep the secret from your sister while you plan all details.

    In the My Family & Friends section of your My Disney Experience account, if listed, select the "Update" option next to her name, followed by "Remove from this List". Next, you will add her again by selecting "Add a Guest." Select the option to enter their name and age, and then add her information including birthdate, but keep the option "I want to manage all plans for this Guest". You can then link your Resort reservation, FastPass+ and restaurant reservations to this account. Finally, after you reveal the news, you can go back to the Family & Friends list, select "Update" and then "Invite to connect" and enter her email address. Your existing plans will then be linked to her My Disney Experience account.

    One last tip: have you thought about saving all the memories of your vacation captured by the amazing Disney PhotoPass Service photographers? With Memory Maker you can! But make sure you select the option to share Disney PhotoPass photos in the Family & Friends section. Happy planning!
