    If I book an on-site hotel reservation starting May 2, and our theme park tickets are valid starting May 3, does my 60-day FastPass window start 60 days before May 2 (check-in), or 60 days before May 3 (first date of ticket validity)? Thank you!

    Hello, Meghan! 

    Thank you for bringing this great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Staying at a Disney Resort hotel comes with many, many benefits, and the answer to your question is one of them!

    Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels can make their FastPass+ reservations 60 days before their check-in date, and that's awesome. You will be able to set the alarm for March 03 at 7:00 a.m. EST and make the most epic FastPass+ selections!

    As a Disney Resort Guest, you will also be able to make dining reservations for up to 10 days at the 180-day mark. That's a very strategic head start if you intend to visit whimsical locations like the Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.

    My family and I joined Snow White for dinner in September, and we had the best time. I will never forget the look on my dad's eyes when he saw Snow White for the first time and greeted her in English (a language that he does not speak!). It was so sweet and lovely that I still cry when I remember that moment! 

    I also suggest booking dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant. Many people think that the best meal at this restaurant is lunch, but dinner is my absolute favorite. To me, that's the moment when its atmosphere shines. It's cozy and intimate, just like Beast's and Belle's dance!

    As soon as you choose your favorites, be prepared to set the alarm for 6 a.m EST on November 04 and make your dining reservations using your My Disney Experience app or the Walt Disney World Resort website. It will feel magical!

    If more questions pop up before your May vacation is here, please, stop by. We love to help kind Guests like you!

    May the magic be with you,
