    My question is, my son lives in Florida and has an annual pass. How can I book my package without it adding a ticket for him? Will I be able to link his ticket to mine so we can do fast passes and possibly dining plan? Thanks!

    Hi, Angelina!  Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hEAR that you are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  When I plan a trip for my family, I am in a situation similar to what you mentioned.  Since I tend to visit the Walt Disney World Resort several times a yEAR, I purchase an Annual Pass.  However, my husband and children aren't there quite as often as I am, so they are not Annual Passholders.

    When you book a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package, all of the guests on your reservation must purchase the same theme park tickets.  Also, if you wish to purchase a Disney Dining Plan, all of the guests included in your vacation package must purchase the same Disney Dining Plan.  Since your son is an Annual Passholder, you will need to book a room-only Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation.  You may then purchase theme park tickets separately for any members of your party who are not Annual Passholders.  This is how I go about booking vacations for my family.  Annual Passholders can purchase a Disney Dining Plan when they have a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation, so your family should be able to take advantage of the Disney Dining Plan during your vacation.

    Be sure to connect with your son using the Family & Friends List in your My Disney Experience account.  Once your My Disney Experience accounts are linked, you will be able to share plans such as FastPass+ selections.  If you have any problems getting this set up, feel free to call the Help Center phone number for My Disney Experience.  A Cast Member will be able to sort that out before you can say, "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!"

    If you have any additional questions as you plan your magical vacation, please stop by again.  See ya real soon!
