    We are traveling with several families and book the disney hotel site with our vacation club points. How does everyone make their own dining reservations, fast pass options, etc.?

    Hi Linda!

    As a Disney Vacation Club Member, we enjoy bringing family and friends with us to the Walt Disney World Resort too. I am currently planning a visit next summer with friends who will be making their first visit! I am so grateful that being Disney Vacation Club Members has allowed us to share our love of Disney with others.

    You can absolutely have it set up so that everyone can make their own FastPass+ and Advance Dining Reservations. First, the adults in your party should set up their own My Disney Experience Accounts. Ideally, each adult has their own account, but if not, then at least one adult from each family should create one. Then, just one adult from each family should add any children to their account. In my family, I have an account, and I have added our children. My husband has his own account, and my mother has one with my father added to hers. My dad likes to leave the details to us!  

    Once all the adults who want one have an account, and the kids are added, you will need to link to the rest of your party using the Family & Friends option. Once you are all linked, you can make plans together, or separately! If everyone is staying together in a larger villa, you should link the Disney Vacation Club reservation number to your account, then it will ask you to match the people listed on the reservation to those in your Family & Friends list. If you have booked a separate room for your friends, you can give them the Disney Vacation Club reservation number for their room, and they will be able to link it to their own My Disney Experience Account, even though they are not DVC Members themselves.

    I hope this helps! Please feel free to send additional questions as you plan your visit. You can also call Member Services for assistance, or there are fantastic Cast Members at tech support who have helped me when needed.

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
