Family planning a trip

    Cindy from GA Asked

    My family and I are planning a big trip to Disney this year. All 16 of us are viewable on the My Disney Experience but it says that my family is managed by someone else. How do I change this so I can make decisions and plans for us?

    Hi Cindy, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you are planning a big family trip to Walt Disney World this summer! All your advance planning will pay off as you will soon be making so many memories with your loved ones! 

    A great way to keep everyone on the same page with planning is My Disney Experience account Family & Friends list. That is a lot of individuals to book plans for, but it can be done! Given that it looks like another member of your party manages the plans for your group, the easiest way around this is to ask that person to go access their own Family & Friends profile, find your name, click the word “Update” to the immediate right of your entry, and then there will be an option to click labeled “Share Planning With Cindy.” This will allow you both to co-manage your plans going forward. 

    I did also speak to Guest Services regarding your question, and they stated that depending on which plans you wish to make, there are some alternate ways to go about this. For example, for dining reservations, you can call Disney Dining to make them over the phone. But for FastPass+ reservations, you’ll want to have your family member grant you this access so you can help make plans for your party. It would be best to come up with a strategy for the FastPass+ booking date so that you all get to experience the attractions you wish to! But please know that FastPass+ selections can be changed all the way up until the moment they are used, so it is very flexible.

    Well, Cindy, I hope you find this information helpful in planning your family adventures! Please don’t hesitate to return if we can be of any more assistance!

    See ya real soon!
