    Plane arrives in Orlando at 9:45 am I'm staying at art of animation and need to check in and activate magic bands then heading to Hollywood studios what time should I start making my fast pass reservations????

    Hello and welcome to the Moms Panel!

    I am going to assume that you will be utilizing Disney's Magical Express (DME) from the airport.  I always tell guests to allow for an hour to an hour and a half to arrive at your Disney resort when arriving by DME. Although you may check-in at your Disney resort, your room is not guaranteed until later on in the afternoon.  If your room is not ready, you can certainly leave your bags with Bell Services and head directly to the parks. Considering your time of arrival at the airport,  I would begin my FastPass+ selections starting at 1:00 p.m.  This will allow for the whole process of arriving at your resort, checking in and arriving at your park of choice.  

    Thank you so much for visiting the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  Please join us again real soon should any new questions or concerns pop-up.  We are always ready to offer some great tips and advice.  May your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation be filled with many new and MAGICAL memories.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"~
