    Hello i booked a package online and i added the option for a day day pass and charter dining experience. Do i have to book the reservations for the dining experience ahead of time and how do i do this when ive already paid for it? how do i get a fast pass?

    Hi Shannon,

    Thanks for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    What a wonderful idea to visit the Disneyland Resort and book your reservations online.
    I always encourage folks to plan ahead in order to make the most of their time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
    Regarding your Character Dining Experience purchase, you should definitely make reservations for your preferred dates and times before your trip. You can do this by calling (714) 781-DINE up to 60 days in advance. The sooner you make the reservation, the better the chances of booking your preferred time.
    As far as getting a FASTPASS, all you have to do is look for the FASTPASS Distribution sign in front of the attraction's entrance. Insert your Park ticket into the machine and it will generate a printed FASTPASS with your return time. This is a great way to avoid long lines and wait times!
    Plus, Disneyland recently announced there is something really cool coming to the Parks later this year called MaxPass, which will allow you to book and redeem your Disney FASTPASS on your phone through the Disneyland App. I'm not sure if this service will be up and running by the time you arrive but it promises to be an incredibly convenient way to enjoy the attractions for a small daily fee.

    I hope I've answered your questions.
    Have a Magical time at the Disneyland Resort!
