MDE-My Disney Experience, your “must” have for Disney planning!! You may be asking:

HERE ARE YOUR STEPS:

-Name and address so you will need to select 2 security questions.
-I recommend to receive updates and special offers (you can change at any time).
-Agree to terms and conditions
-Add everyone in your party including Name, date of birth, don’t forget to pick their avatar.
-Make sure to input your cell phone number and add credit card (this will be needed for a couple things)
1- Dining reservations

*Disney dining reservations
*Disney Resort reservations, if applicable
*Information for your travel party (names, DOB)
*Memory Maker Information and access
*Fastpass reservations, can also be changed on phone
WHAT INFORMATION YOU CAN FIND:
-You want to have the MDE app on your phone. It has some very helpful in parks information you can use in parks like: (You do not need to be logged in to see this information)
