    I am trying to change the character image of the guests I am travelling with. I chose Walle, but everyone else just has the Mickey logo. How can they chose their character. Thank you.

    Hey, Marilyn and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Personalizing your Disney avatar is a fun way to show your Disney Side. I love seeing my Sorcerer Mickey pop up while I am planning my next adventure. In order to change it, you must be the manager of the Disney account. For example, I manage three people; my two sons and me. My wife manages herself. I am unable to change her avatar and she is unable to change ours.

    If you are the manager of Guests you are traveling with then here is how to do it. On the upper right side, below the search bar, you will see "My Disney Experience." Hover your pointer over those words and a drop down menu will reveal an option for "My Family & Friends." Click it. You may need to sign in to your Disney account. As you scroll down the list, look for those accounts you manage and you will see the option to "Update" on the right side. Click update. A profile window will pop open with the ability to "Change Character" on the left. Click it and then choose their favorite Disney personality.

    Guest managing their own account simply sign in to their Disney account, hover the pointer over "My Disney Experience" on the upper right and click on their name, current avatar or the word "Profile." A profile page will pop up and you may select the blue "Change Character" to lead you to more Disney characters.

    Disney Dad Tip: The best planning tool is found in the comfort of your hand. The My Disney Experience mobile app gives access to making dining reservations and FastPass+ selections, Disney PhotoPass Service photos, shopping and the ability to use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering.

    Marilyn, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
