    I have a WL reservation package for 5 days. We purchased tickets for my son for same 5 days not sure he could stay entire time. Now he can and we want to add him to reservation and receive all EMH and Extended evening hours privileges. Can’t online. How?

    Hiya, Cynthia! I'm so glad you found the second star to the right and followed it straight on to planDisney.

    Oh boy! It sounds like you have magical plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort this September! Disney's Wilderness Lodge is my absolute favorite resort and I'm thrilled to hear that you'll be making it "home" during your upcoming visit. I can already smell the cedar and sequoia! Not only that, but September is a great time of year to visit with so much to see and do, too. You'll be able to enjoy the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and sample the global marketplaces and live entertainment offerings. And don't forget to pack your spooky best if you plan on purchasing tickets to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! No matter where you go, there is surely magic waiting for you around every corner.

    Cynthia, I'm so excited to hear that your son will be able to join you during your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! I have a few steps that can help guide you in the right direction. It sounds like you may have purchased theme park tickets for your son separately from a vacation package (which would include a reservation to a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and theme park tickets combined). If you made a room-only reservation for Disney's Wilderness Lodge, you may be able to modify this reservation online to include him. To do this, log into your account online, hover your mouse over the My Disney Experience tab and click My Plans. Scroll down until you see your Disney's Wilderness Lodge reservation and click Change Reservation. Scroll down to Travel Party and click Change. Here, you'll be able to update the number of Guests staying in your room, allowing you to add your son!

    However, if you booked a vacation package (including a reservation to a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and theme park tickets) for the Guests in your travel party, it might not make the most sense to update this reservation online to include your son if you also have separately purchased tickets for him. In this case, my best piece of advice would be to call a Cast Member at (407) 939-1936. A little like real-life fairy godparents, they'll be happy to take a peek at your reservations and let you know of the next steps that are available to you. 

    Cynthia, don't forget to also make theme park reservations using the Disney Park Pass system for your son! This is an important step to reserve the parks you wish to visit on each day of your trip. And take a little time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app before you visit! This app is a little like holding a magic wand in your hand, allowing you to check wait times for attractions, view park maps, and (my favorite!) mobile order food. I love knowing my meals and snacks will be ready before I ever feel a rumbly in my tumbly!

    I hope I was able to help you with your question today, Cynthia. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
