    Hello! I have never shared DVC use with others. I am giving a week get away for friends to stay at Grand Floridian Villas on my points. May I also purchase their Disney tickets and Dining package for all four of them, or will they need to that themselves?

    Hi Cheryl,

    What a fabulous gift to be able to offer your friends, who will undoubtedly love their stay at The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  The gift of Disney travel is a wonderful way to treat both friends and family, as the vacation memories they take home are sure to last a lifetime!  

    If your friends wish to add the Disney Dining Plan to the Disney Vacation Club reservation you have made on their behalf, this is something which only you, as the Disney Vacation Club member, will be able to do. A Disney Dining Plan can be added to a Disney Vacation Club Resort reservation any time up to 48 hours prior to Check-In. To do so, simply contact Member Services at (800) 800-9800, or visit the Disney Vacation Club member website, access the Resort reservation in question in the Vacation Center, click on Travel Plan Details, and then select Add a Dining Plan.

    As for purchasing Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets, this is something which you could purchase on your friends' behalf, or which your friends could purchase directly for themselves, either online by calling (407) 939- 5277 and speaking with a helpful Disney Cast Member. Be sure to remind your friends to create individual My Disney Experience accounts for each guest in the travel party, and to then link their Disney Vacation Club Resort reservation and their Theme Park Tickets to their account so that they will be all set to start making those all-important FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to Check-In at The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    Wishing your friends a Magical upcoming Disney vacation!
