    If I purchase tickets online and have them emailed, can I start booking FAST pass immediately, or do I have to wait until I pick up the physical tickets in person? Is this the same if I have them shipped?

    Hello Tracy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is a pleasure to answer you first question.

    If you buy admission tickets online you can definitely use the confirmation number of your ticket purchase to link them to your My Disney Experience account. Once you have your tickets linked, you can start making your FastPass+ selections up to 30 days before your visit or 60 days in advance if you are staying at a Disney resort hotel. If you stay at a Disney resort hotel you will receive complimentary MagicBands and will not need the physical card copies of your admission tickets. 

    Here is a great video where I give tips on benefits for Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels. I hope you enjoy it, and that you choose to stay right in the middle of the magic!

    Best magical wishes,
