    I am transgender, but have not gotten to update my legal ID yet. I understand and accept that the tickets are tied to my legal name, but is there an officially supported way to have everything else refer to me as my chosen name?

    Hi Charles! 
    Gawrsh, what a great question! My son is transgender, and before we legally changed his name, this was a touchy subject for him. I simply created a new family member in my MyDisneyExperience for him, and then at a later date, I removed his former name and profile. 
    I was doing a little exploring, and found that you can actually change your personal information on your MyDisneyExperience. By clicking on the profile link and then “account settings”, you can select your preferred prefix, and change your first, middle, or last name. 
    I have found Walt Disney World to be one of the most inclusive places that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community, and wants ALL of their guests to be comfortable with how they are addressed. So, your tickets can be linked to your preferred name! You can also get a celebration button at one of the many retail locations throughout the property and have them put your preferred name on your button. 
    Have you seen all of the amazing Pride Merchandise on shopDisney? I *might* have gone a little overboard this year! 
    Have a great visit to Walt Disney World this July 4th holiday weekend! Be sure to catch the Happily Ever After Fireworks at Magic Kingdom, which JUST returned on July 1. 
    Wishing you a magical vacation full of joy and acceptance, 
    Tracy

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
