Hi all -
I just met with a friend this morning to try to help her with some Disney planning. For Christmas, they are surprising their three children with a trip to WDW (January 2-January 8) - none of them have ever been there before.
So far, they have room-only booked at the Dolphin, which she booked through Expedia. She did not know about MDE so does not have a MDE account yet, and have not ordered tickets yet. Our family has been three times, but always at Disney-owned resorts with a package, so this is a little different for me. I told her first she should create a MDE account, so we can link her hotel reservation to it, and then get her tickets so we can look at some FPP options. Once she creates it, she can link her MDE account to her existing Dolphin reservation, right? Will her Expedia reservation have the account number to use for linking, or does she have to call the resort itself to do this? Thank you!
