large family coming out of Cinderella Castle

    Hello, I have done all the planning for my family’s trip, leaving in one week so excited! I’m wondering if each person needs to create a Disney app to use their fastpass at the park or if I can do it all for them.

    Hi, Samantha!

    I hope your bags are packed, because Mickey and Minnie are so excited you are visiting them real soon! They have been busy getting the holiday decorations ready, so you will start to see splashes of Christmas cheer all around the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    You are welcome to access all the FastPasses in your travel party. Just make sure when you visit My Disney Experience that everyone is listed, either directly on your account or linked through "My Family& Friends" list. Remember that the My Disney Experience app also has wait times, your dining reservations listed, park maps, and so much more. Guests in your travel party may still want to have the app so they can access all that helpful information during your vacation. Before leaving home, make sure you are updated with the latest version of the My Disney Experience app to get the latest and greatest version. Know your login name and password so you can easily access your information. 

    Now, to actually USE the Fast Pass+ each guest will need to have a MagicBand or their theme park admission ticket linked to the account. If staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you should have received your complimentary MagicBands. If staying off property, you can simply use your park tickets, or purchase MagicBands and link them to your My Disney Experience account. Whatever you prefer. Each guest (age 3 and older) needs to "tap" a MagicBand or ticket to enter the FastPass+ line during their scheduled time. 

    I hope you have a magical visit to Walt Disney World!
