    Planning a trip with our daughter and her husband. She is paying for the room at a Disney partner hotel and the room will be in her name. If we but tix under two separate MDE accounts, can we all link to the hotel reservation for early entry? Thanks!

    Royal greetings, David!

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you for coming to us with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. I'm excited to hear that you're planning a family visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. The only thing better than visiting a Disney destination is experiencing it with your loved ones!

    For my family, staying at a Disney Resort hotel is an important part of every Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We love staying immersed in Disney magic even after we leave the theme parks! The early theme park entry benefit allows Guests of Disney Resort hotels and other select hotels to enter the theme parks 30 minutes before they open to the public. Early theme park entry is only available to Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel or another eligible hotel, so as long as you are listed on your daughter's reservation, you'll be able to take advantage of the early entry period together!

    David, I recommend linking to your family members' accounts in My Disney Experience using the Family & Friends List feature if you haven't already. This will allow you to include one another in plans like dining reservations, Enchanted Extras Collection offerings, and Lightning Lane entry selections! (My friend and fellow panelist, Matt, recently explained the linking process to another Guest.) Connecting via your Family & Friends Lists will enable you to plan together and view one another's theme park tickets and plans in the My Disney Experience mobile app!

    I hope you find this information useful as you continue to plan an enchanting vacation, David. I hope you and your family members have a magical and memorable trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any additional questions, please revisit us here at planDisney again anytime. We're here to help you make special memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Warm wishes,
