    Can we get the fast passes ahead of time? Do we have to know which Park and specific date to use them or can it be a range of dates?

    Hi Barbara,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    I am glad that you are thinking about using Disney FastPass+ service when you head to Walt Disney World. By making Disney FastPass+ selections, you will be able to choose some attractions each day to experience with shortened wait times. Before your vacation, you will be able to make up to three Disney FastPass+ selections for each day of your vacation. When you are in the theme park, once you have used all three of your selections, you can make a fourth, and after using that a fifth, and so on and so forth for the rest of the day based on availability. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you will be able to make these selections at 60 days before your check-in date for your vacation. If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can make these selections 30 days in advance.

    You do need to have in mind a specific date and attraction before making your Disney FastPass+ selections. The system will give you options for a time window. For example, you may know that you are visiting Magic Kingdom on say, December 15, and you want to choose Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Peter Pan's Flight, and Space Mountain as your Disney FastPass+ selections. When you sign into your My Disney Experience account, you can follow the prompts to make Disney FastPass+ selections. The system will offer you different time blocks for each attraction based on availability. For each attraction, you will have a one-hour window to experience the attraction on that date. Please do note that you must have a Walt Disney World theme park ticket linked in your My Disney Experience account in order to make Disney FastPass+ selections.

    I hope that the explanation is helpful for you, Barbara!
