    We are booking our resort as a room only and purchasing tickets separately. Will the resort reservation only allow us to book fast pass plus options or must we purchase tickets before we can book our fast pass plus?

    Hi Donna,

    I bet you're getting excited for your vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! October is such a wonderful time to visit. You'll love all of the pretty fall decorations, plus with the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party going on, you're going to have so much FUN!

    To make FastPass+ selections, you will need to have valid tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account. They don't need to be purchased with your Resort hotel room, but you'll want to make sure to enter either your Will Call Confirmation Number or your Ticket ID numbers to link them to your account. Once your tickets and your Disney Resort hotel reservation are linked to your account, you'll be able to make FastPass+ selections beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time 60 days before your check-in date. Another great perk of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is that you'll be able to make selections for the entire length of your stay, up to 14 days, at that 60-day point instead of needing to log in every day for several days in a row to make your selections. Some of the more popular attractions like Slinky Dog Dash, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Avatar Flight of Passage fill up early, but you should have better luck finding open FastPass+ return times by looking a few days into your trip. Being able to make FastPass+ selections for your whole trip at once can really make a difference!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Donna, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
