    My son is bringing a friend to Disney with us. We have everything booked for next year. What if, for whatever reason, this friend can’t go and we bring a different friend? Is it difficult to change a member of your party?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Paula and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Oh, mid-May is one of my favorite times of year to spend with Mickey and the gang. Not all kids are out of school so the crowd levels are more manageable in the theme parks, Disney Water Parks, and the Disney Resort hotel pools. I just love the Disney Resort hotel pools each with their unique themes. You will have an amazing time watching your son and his friend explore, laugh, and build memories to last a lifetime.

    You may change the name of any Guest on the reservation except the primary person. This is the person who booked the reservation. If you need to change a party member then contact Disney as soon as you know. Everything on the reservation can be changed with enough time including Disney Dining Plans, Tickets, and hotel room access. If you have booked FastPass+ selections, make sure to talk to the Cast Member about transferring those as well. Also, changing a person with enough notice will help them get a complimentary, customizable MagicBand for the trip. Just contact Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at 407-939-1936 to make the arrangements. Remember, as soon as you find out, you should call.

    Disney Dad Tip: This adventure will be so fun for your son. I suggest you purchase a Memory Maker to capture all those pixie-dusted moments. From attraction photos and Magic Shots to Disney Character Experiences and scenic views, the Disney PhotoPass photographers know how to capture your smile in the place "where dreams come true."

    Paula, I hope your party enjoys making many Magical Memories next year.
