    Hi.. we are traveling to Disney world dic 27- Jan 1 ... my question is .. do they have front of the line tickets I know this time is very busy.. than you !!

    Hi Martha,

    I have visited Walt Disney World at the time between Christmas and New Year's Day in the past. You are correct, it is a very busy time of year at Walt Disney World as so many people are able to travel at this time of year. While there is not a "front of the line ticket" at Walt Disney World, let me offer you some tips and tricks for making the most of your vacation at this time of year.

    First, absolutely plan to arrive at the theme park that you will be visiting on any given day early, even 30 minutes before opening time if you can. Many guests like to sleep late on vacation, and there will be many fewer guests early in the morning even during a busier time of year. You will be able to experience more attractions at this time of day.

    Next, definitely take advantage of Disney FastPass+ service. By making Disney FastPass+ selections, you will be able to experience some attractions with a shorter wait time each day. Before your vacation, you can make up to three Disney FastPass+ selections per day. I suggest making these for mid-morning. You can experience a few attractions before, and then use your Disney FastPass+ selections. Once you have used all three of your selections, you can make a fourth, and then a fifth after that, and so on and so forth throughout the day, subject to availability. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can make these selections up to 60 days prior to your check-in date. If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can make them 30 days in advance. Be sure that you have valid theme park admission linked in your My Disney Experience account in order to make these selections.

    I hope that these tips are helpful to you, Martha! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
