Resort Reservation and Disney Accounts

I wasn't sure where best to put this and thought it might fit in the resort forum!

I've just secured a OKW reservation with rented DVC points and in trying to link it to my Disney account (to customize bands, etc.) I think I've made a rookie mistake.

In short, the names on my reservation didn't match the names on my account exactly (Ms. Hayley Lastname v Dr. Hayley X Lastname) and I figured I would just link the reservation and contact the owner later today to change the details. However, it seems the site has just created a new 'family and friend' for me, and whilst I can see the reservation in 'My Reservations', whenever I try to access the MagicBand bit, I get the message that the reservation is already linked to Ms Hayley Lastname. (Apologies, that wasn't that short!)

However, my question is - if I delete my existing Disney account, will the link to the reservation be deleted too? That is, I was hoping I could just contact Dave's DVC and have them change the names on the res, then create a brand new account and link the reservation properly if possible.

Ugh, I'm kicking myself right now. Any other suggestions will be gratefully received!!

Don't delete anything. Give Disney a call and explain your problem. They have a tech support team that can help you adjust MDE behind the scenes that may save you hours of frustration.

On my MDE acct it was showing me as an additional family member and was having problems linking my reservations. A quick call took care of the problem. Much easier than I had expected.
