    I previously bought park tickets for Disney World. Am I able to be added on to my friend’s already booked vacation package (resort) for free? I’d want to stay with them to do early entry.

    Hey Howdy Hey Natalia and welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting it is to have a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort just days away! Let's jump right in and see if we can get you set up to stay with your friends. 

    You are more than welcome to stay with your friends on your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort however there are some contingencies. In most cases, most standard rooms will say they may sleep 4 adults, however, there is usually a charge if more than 2 adults are staying in one room. If you find yourself as the third adult in the room, you may be added but there is a per-night fee associated with this addition. The specific price would be dependent on the category of accommodations.  If they are staying in a larger room, say a 1-bedroom, this may not be the case due to the ample room that is available in those rooms. If you did want to add yourself to their reservation, you would do so by calling Disney and speaking with a Cast Member. 

    No matter if you are staying with your friends or not, if you are visiting the parks together, you should try to connect your My Disney Experience accounts so you can share planning together. You can do this by logging into your account and going to the "My Family & Friends" section of the site. You should see instructions there to look up your friends via name or other means. Once connected, you will be able to share plans including making Lightning Lane selections with the purchase of Genie+ as well as booking Virtual Queues together. It is a great way to keep together during your trip and enjoy your trip together. 

    I hope you can make this addition easily and you have a Magical vacation with your friends. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach back out, we are always happy to help

    Have a Magical day,
