    We’re planning a visit with a family friend. I know I can use my DVC points to make a reservation for their family, but if their plans change, can I modify their reservation for them later or will they need to do it since they will be the primary guest?

    Hey there, Kelsey! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question. I love chatting with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member!

    One of the things my family and I have loved most about our DVC Membership is being able to bring family and friends with us on our magical adventures. Before DVC, we would never have been able to treat friends and family to a vacation, but our Membership has made those dreams a reality. Nothing beats the reaction of family and friends when they realize that the gorgeous Villa we've just stepped into is going to be their magical home away from home. I'm so excited for you and your friends to experience this magical moment together, and I'm thrilled to answer your question today.

    Even if you make your friend the primary Guest on one of your DVC Resort reservations, as the DVC Member, you will still be in charge of the reservation, meaning that you will be able to modify or cancel it at any time.

    When you make the reservation for your friend's room online, once you get to the "Add Guest Information" page, just enter your friend's family's names and contact information, including their address, phone number and email address. Also, be sure to check the "This Guest is not a Disney Vacation Club Member" box under each non-Member Guest. Once the reservation is confirmed, it will be listed on your DVC online account under "My Vacation Plans" on "My Dashboard." If you ever need to modify it, just click the little blue arrow next to the reservation and click the "View or Modify Details" button. Happy booking!

    Genie sang, "You ain't never had a friend like me," but your friends ain't never had a friend like you, Kelsey! I hope this was helpful, and I hope you all have the most magical and memorable vacation together. Please feel free to stop by any time with any vacation planning or DVC questions you may have along the way.

    See ya real soon,
