Mom and Dad planning vacation

    Adriano Asked

    Hello, I've already purchased a 3-day single park tickets for my family of three (My wife, my daughter 4 years old and me). Do I need to get MagicBand or Disney card in order to can make my FastPass+ selections and use them on the parks?

    Hi, Adriano!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort trip is less than two months away.  How exciting!  I love visiting Walt Disney World during that time of year.  In my opinion, Florida weather in February is practically perfect in every way!

    Since you have already purchased your park tickets, you will want to link those to your My Disney Experience Account and add the people you are visiting with to your Family & Friends List.  Once you have done that, you can begin thinking about your FastPass+ selections.  If you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, FastPass+ selections can be made up to 60 days prior to check-in.  If you are staying at another location, FastPass+ selections can be made as early as 30 days prior to your arrival.  You will be able to make your FastPass+ selections even if you have not yet received your MagicBand.  Once you are in the parks, your MagicBand or admission card can be scanned at the entrance of the attraction that you booked a FastPass+ for. 

    Did you know that once you have used your three FastPass+ selections for the day, you can use the My Disney Experience App to book an additional FastPass+?  Once this FastPass+ is redeemed, you will be able to continue booking FastPass+ selections one at a time for the remainder of the day.

    Have a magical day!
