    Can I book fast pass+ selections for my mother's ticket if I do not purchase it with my families tickets?

    Hi Kelli,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am happy to see that you are making Fast Pass+ selections. Now that we have this option, I am not sure how we ever survived without it!

    As long as your mother's ticket is linked to your My Disney Experience Account, you can certainly make Fast Pass+ selections for her as well. If she has the same number of ticket days, you can book the same Fast Pass+ selections for her as you do for the remainder of your family. If she has fewer days on her ticket, you will only be able to make Fast Pass+ selections for the number of days she has valid theme park admission.

    When I have traveled with my mom on prior trips, I always link her ticket to My Disney Experience account and I manage all of her plans including dining reservations. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will be able to make those Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance of your trip. If you are staying elsewhere, you can make your Fast Pass+ selections 30 days in advance.

    Let me also offer one word of caution. If you do not make your mother's Fast Pass+ selections at the same time as yours, you may not be able to get the same selections for her. Although you should be able to "add a guest" to your Fast Pass+ party if you have to book her selections after having done yours, doing so is not entirely guaranteed. 

    Kelli, my final suggestion is that you prioritize the rides your family wants to experience at each park before your Fast Pass+ selection window opens. I suggest that you make a Fast Pass+ for Avatar Flight of Passage first if you plan to visit Animal Kingdom. It is a wildly popular ride on Pandora and Fast Pass+ selections have been disappearing quickly.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
