    We bought tickets through the military. Where do we go to buy fast passes and plan our trip.

    Welcome to planDisney, Melissa! 

    It sounds like you are ready to make some memories to last a lifetime on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. November is one of my favorite times to visit thanks to the near-perfect weather and festive holiday events. I often find that the early November crowds are a little lighter than other times of the year as well. 

    Melissa, the FastPass+ system is not currently being used, so you will not have to make any of those selections. What you will need to do is to pick the park that you would like to visit on each day of your trip and make a reservation on the Disney Park Pass system. To make your reservation, create a My Disney Experience account and link your tickets. Once your tickets are in your account, you can assign them to a family member and select which park you would like to visit on what day. 

    Another thing that you can do to plan for your trip is to go ahead and make any advanced dining reservations. My family likes to schedule one table service meal a day, giving us a little time to sit-down and connect as a family. If you are looking for a character dining experience, some of our favorites include breakfast at Topolino's Terrace at Disney's Riviera Resort or lunch at Hollywood & Vine located in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  

    Melissa, one thing that I love to do is to take a look at the attractions in each park. My family then makes our very own must-do list. This helps us prioritize our attractions when we enter the parks. 

    Make sure that you download the My Disney Experience Mobile App. This app will let you make dining reservations, see wait times, and even puts a map of the theme parks in the palm of your hand. 

    I just know you will have a magical vacation, Melissa. Please come back here if we can help answer any questions about where to sleep, play, or dine at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    See you real soon!
