    Can I transfer my theme park reservations to my friends?

    Hi there, Chikako! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    First, I'd like to applaud your generosity! I'm sure your friends are very thankful you'd think of them when it comes to transferring your theme park reservations. I'd certainly like to have a friend like you!

    Unfortunately, Chikako, there is no way to transfer your theme park reservations to other Guests. One option would be to try to perfectly time the cancellation of your reservation. Here's what I mean by this. When one Guest cancels a theme park reservation, it becomes available for another to book. You could try to cancel your theme park reservation and have your friends on standby waiting to see if the availability changes shortly after you let yours go. If they see it become available, they can make their reservations immediately.

    The bad news? This is not a perfect science and certainly not guaranteed to work. It is unclear whether reservations become available immediately or take some time to reenter the system. But, it's worth a try, right? 

    Your option would be to allow your friends to use your tickets. Even if there are other names assigned to the tickets, the tickets are not required to be used by that particular Guest. Once you arrive at the gate and scan through the turnstiles, the Cast Member will take a photo and assign that ticket to that particular Guest, regardless of the name on the ticket. As long as the ticket is used by someone of the same age range (adult vs. child), they'll be able to use them to enter. If you're a Magic Key Holder, this will not apply.

    I hope this helps you find a way to gift some magic to your friends, Chikako!
