Family planning a trip

    I have existing reservations for a trip for our family of 5 but our oldest son will be joining us halfway through our stay making it 6. How can I add him to our fastpass plans?

    Hi, Kristen!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You're only a couple months away from your Walt Disney World vacation; how exciting!  This is the perfect time for you to be thinking about making your FastPass+ selections.  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, FastPass+ selections can be made starting at 60 days prior to your arrival.  If you are staying elsewhere, you may begin to choose FastPass+ 30 days before you arrive.

    I'm happy to tell you that you should have no problem adding your oldest son to your FastPass+ plans.  First, you will want to make sure everyone in your traveling party, including your oldest son, is on your Family & Friends List in your My Disney Experience Account.  You will also need to have everyone's theme park tickets linked to your My Disney Experience Account.  Once it's time to make your FastPass+ selections, you can log onto your My Disney Experience Account on your computer or your mobile device using the My Disney Experience mobile app.  

    When you begin the process of selecting FastPass+, you will be prompted to check off the people in your Family & Friends List who you would like to book FastPass+ for.  If you are choosing FastPass+ for a date when only five members of your family will be present, only check off those five people.  If you are making FastPass+ selections for a day that your oldest son will be joining you, simply check off his name and add all six of your family members to your FastPass+ party.

    If you have any other questions as you get ready for your trip, please let us know.  See ya real soon!
