    We have a villa booked for an upcoming stay. We will have some people for the entire week and others only for a night or two. Should I add all of the names to our reservation for the entire stay even if they are arriving on day two and leaving day 4?

    Hi Zoe,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. It sounds like you are planning a wonderful vacation! My husband, daughter, and I often travel to Walt Disney World for a week and have other family members join us for part of the vacation. It is a really nice way to enjoy Walt Disney World to add different people to the magic throughout the vacation!

    I suggest that you add the names of all of the people who will be visiting during your vacation to your reservation. I often let the cast member with whom I am speaking while I am doing this know the specific days that the extra people will be joining us. It is important to have everyone listed on your reservation so that you can get everyone in your party set up with MagicBands before you leave home through your My Disney Experience account. This will make the process of making dining reservations and Disney FastPass+ selections much simpler before you leave for your vacation.

    If you made your vacation reservations through Disney Vacation Club, I suggest that you call Disney Vacation Club Member Services at 1-800-800-9800 to update the guest information. If you made your reservation through Disney, you can call (407) W-DISNEY (407-934-7639) to have the information added.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Zoe. Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions!
