    My parents are suppose to be buying tickets for December but haven't yet. What do we have to have to reserve fast passes? Do we need the actual tickets or just a reservation number? And if we need the tickets how long doesn't it take to get them?

    Hi Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your excellent question about FastPass+. Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    In order to begin making FastPass+ selections in advance of your vacation, a valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park admission ticket or annual pass must be linked to your My Disney Experience account. Unfortunately, a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation will not suffice.

    If you have both a valid theme park ticket and Disney Resort hotel reservation linked to your Disney account, you will be able to start making FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your Disney Resort hotel arrival.
    If you are not staying in a Disney Resort hotel, but have a valid theme park ticket linked to your Disney Account, you will be able to start making FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of your vacation.

    Once you purchase your theme park tickets, you will be able to link them immediately! If you purchase them directly from your Disney account, they will automatically be associated to your account. If you purchase them via telephone, you will be given a confirmation number which can be used to link your theme park tickets to your account.

    Don’t Forget: You can begin making advanced dining reservations 180 days in advance of your vacation even if you have not yet made a Disney Resort hotel reservation or purchased theme park tickets.

    Sarah, I hope I have helped answer your question. If you have any additional questions please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again.
