    We have booked our trip through an event at Disney. It appears we won't be receiving anything in the mail and have to pick up a packet when we get there. It states that we have DME as part of our package. How do I sign up for DME and fast passes?

    Hi Kimberly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I take it you also have a cheerleader attending The Summit? I'm a bit familiar with this event, and even called the host organization a few weeks ago to confirm some details. You are correct, you will receive your room assignment, park tickets, MagicBands and even your corresponding Disney reservation number once you or your group arrives to the competition registration area.

    Your squad should receive an email this week or next from the event host organization with instructions on how to register for Disney's Magical Express, so double check with other parents if they've received theirs yet. Traditionally to ride this complimentary airport shuttle, Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests need at the very minimum their Disney confirmation number. Since those attending this competition won't have this information yet, the transportation email that will be sent soon will contain specifics for those attending this competition. I'm thinking they've made special arraignments to pick the teams up from the airport and transport you directly to ESPN Wide World of Sport for the event check-in, when normally Magical Express buses only go to directly to Disney's Resort Hotels.

    As far as FastPass+ reservations go, you can start making those selections as soon as you get your Disney Theme Park Tickets. Download the My Disney Experience App where you can enter the ticket information and even reserve your rides from the registration site or while on your way to your Disney Resort Hotel. Pro Tip: Make sure all members of your party are entered in the 'Family and Friends' section of your My Disney Experience account now to make things easier (and faster!) when you do get your tickets.

    We'll See You Real Soon!
