    When booking a trip, does it need to paid in full before you receive any of the documents? I know they send a magnet with the dates you can start making ADR and fast passes and i don't want to miss those dates.

    Dear Katie,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to say "Hiya Pal!" to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    The good news is that your Magic Your Way package does not have to be paid in full in order for you to make Advanced Dining Reservations or FastPass+ selections, but it must be paid in full by 30 days prior to your check-in date. You can pay off the balance online or you can do it by calling 1 (407) W-DISNEY. 

    To my knowledge, there is not a magnet with those dates sent out (though some travel agents may do it privately). There are many useful date calculators online that can assist you to confirm the exact dates that your Advanced Dining Reservations and FastPass+ windows open. I always use those calculators and then mark the dates in my personal calendar to keep track!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
