    Question about perks for onsite guests... We are a family of 4 getting ready to book the week before Christmas. My brother plans to go to the parks with us but he won't be staying with us. He's already listed under my account in MDX because of previous trips. Will he get the same benefits we'll get by being onsite guests just from being listed in my account: FP+ and EMH?

    You will be able to book fps for him at 60 days out as long as you include him with your fps selections. He won't be able to make his own fps at 60 days out. He won't be able to take advantage of EMH. They scan the MB's to see if you are a resort guest.

    If you have occupancy left in your hotel room, you could add him to the reservation. But if your rooms sleeps four, you have four already. Unless one of your children is under the age of three.

    And if you already have 2 adults, you'd pay a fee for a third.

    Any guest with valid ticket media can access FP+. Onsite guests with valid ticket media linked in MDE can book FP+ 60 days prior (as PP's have pointed out, you can also book Friends and Family FP+ at 60 days out even if they aren't staying onsite with you). Offsite guests with valid ticket media linked to MDE can book FP+ 30 days in advance. Guests that purchase their tickets day-of or did not link their tickets to MDE can make FP+ at in-park kiosks. Just wanted to clarify in case this poster wasn't aware of FP+ eligibility!

    As others have said, your brother will only be able to take advantage of EMH if he is listed on an onsite resort reservation.
