    I am booked at a Disney resort with 3 day park tickets. I am surprised to learn that to add a ticket day I have to do it in person. So, I won't be able to make fastpass reservations for the 4th day until I arrive?

    Hi Ashley,

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question. I'm excited to hear that you'll be able to add a theme park day to your upcoming vacation! What a blessing that will surely bring you even MORE magic and fun!

    I checked with a Cast Member just to make sure that you aren't able to upgrade your tickets before you arrive, and learned that if you have purchased your tickets through Disney as part of a package, you actually are able to upgrade them beforehand. You may do so either through the "My Reservations and Tickets" portion of My Disney Experience or by calling the Disney Reservation Center at 407-560-CHAT (2428) between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. Eastern time. 

    If your tickets were purchased another way, though, you're right that you'll need to wait until you arrive to upgrade your tickets. You'll simply want to visit a theme park ticket window, Guest Relations location, or Resort Concierge desk for help. Just make sure that you add your extra day when you have at least one day left on your tickets. Since you're concerned about making FastPass+ selections, I'd recommend making your choices for the first three days of your theme park visits so that you'll have the most availability possible when adding your fourth day's FastPass+ selections. I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll find availability for the attractions you're excited to experience!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip, Ashley, and have a truly magical vacation!
