Thanks.
Yes you can add them to the deed and yes that will make them members with all the perks. Call Member Administration for the details. I think you have to make a no risk pass through ROFR (they won't take it but I think you still have to go through the motions), then have the deed reissued. You could probably do everything yourself, but one of the title companies that handles DVC resales could do it for you. If you use a title company, I think it's around $250 (someone doing the same thing recently posted the cost but not sure on the amount)

Something to keep in mind ... If you put their names on the deeds, legally they own part of it. If one of them ever gets into debt issues or goes through a divorce your DVC would be something that a third party could make a claim against.

It's been my experience that when using the app you can only reserve 3 FPs at the same park in advance. So I had to waste FPs I had no intention of using.

My understanding is that if you want to schedule at a different park then you don't have to have 3 at the first park. After you tap to use your first FP where you are scheduled for 2 FP's you will then be allowed to select a third FP at a different park.

If you were going to use 3 FP's at a single park then you would have to wait until you tapped for the 3rd FP before you could add one there.

That is true you can't do it in advance but I think they were talking about only scheduling two FP's and then after using one or two schedule the third at a different park and that can be done.

Your understanding is right, you can book one or two in advance and then as soon as you've tapped in for the first, you can book your remaining "advance" fps at another park.

It must be the least well known fastpass rule. It was only by chance I found out about it before our last trip, and it was great to know. Especially if you were wanting FoP. Book one whenever you can get it, and then hop to another park and finish there.

This is a new one on me - Thanks!

To clarify, if we have three scheduled for the park we are in, and get on a ride earlier via standby, can we modify the FP to another park (assuming we have used at least one FP at park 1), or can it only be done if you never have 3 FP selections to begin with?

As long as you have used at least one FP at the park you are in then you should be able to modify the one you don't need anymore because you're riding it standby to be used at another park. So you can have the FP's existing as a backup and then try standby and switch if the standby works out for you.

Great - I had no idea of this one. Might have changed my planning for next month's trip a little, but we'll make it work to our advantage anyway. Thanks!

From what I've heard (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) once you change/add names on the contract it also impacts your ability to combine points. So the points on a contract with you and your spouse couldn't be combined with a contract with y'all and the kids without a points transfer. That may or may not be a concern for you depending upon how you use your points.
