    Callie from MI Asked

    Hello! I am going to be booking a suite at AoA for my family of five (7, 5, 2YO) plus my parents. My family is staying 7 nights, my parents are staying 4 nights. My family needs 4 park tix each, my parents only need 2 park tix each. How should I book this?

    Hi Callie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are thrilled that you brought this question to us!

    When I have shared a room with friends and all of us were staying different days, one person made the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room only reservation and added all of us to the reservation. We then purchased our tickets separately. Each of us has our own My Disney Experience account to which we link the resort hotel confirmation number and our theme park tickets (or annual passes). 

    Remember that you may be charged more for additional guests because they are listed on your reservation for the length of stay. When I travel with friends, one person charges the total cost of the room and, among ourselves, we reimburse that person our portion of the room cost. Since we are all flying, we all need to be on the room reservation to use Disney's Magical Express transportation. 

    If you are the primary planner for the group, make sure that you have everyone linked in your My Disney Experience account so that you can make advanced dining reservations and FastPass+ selections for everyone. If you have not done so already, download the My Disney Experience Mobile App so that you can easily track, modify, and/or cancel plans during your trip.

    Callie, my parents traveled with us when we took our girls on their first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort and it was the most perfect trip. I am so glad that we also used Memory Maker on that trip so that we still have all of our Disney PhotoPass photos. To this day, we laugh at our pictures from the girls' first visit - it was such a happy time!

    Magic and memories,
