    We booked the Swan hotel through another company. Do we still get to make Fast Passes at the 60 day point? Also-I know we don't get the magic bands, but we still have 2 magic bands per guest last used in May 2015. Can we still link them to our tickets?

    Hi Vanessa,

    How awesome you will soon be visiting Walt Disney World Resort. Are you ready to have a magical time?

    MagicBands are the best invention since sliced bread. They carry your Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ and dining reservations, and store all your Disney PhotoPass Service memories captured by the experienced photographers. All you need to do is Link your tickets and reservations to your My Disney Experience account, and you will then be able to access them right away. Old MagicBands should still work, however it is best to carry a backup Ticket card in case the battery is weak.

    Walt Disney World Swan Hotel and Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel are two great neighbor properties surrounding Crescent Lake and with walking distance to Disney's BoardWalk. They share many of the Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefits, including access to FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance, complimentary resort transportation, and Extra Magic Hours.

    One last tip: be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to quickly access attraction wait times, or able to make or change your reservations quickly. See you real soon!
