    'm going on a cruise leaving from New York in October. It includes a day at the parks. How will I be able to reserve dining and Fast Passes if my o line booking for the cruise doesn't start until 90 days before the cruise.

    Ahoy, Sandra!

    You are in for double the pixie dust with your Disney Cruise that includes a day at the Walt Disney World Resort! I experienced this same itinerary a few years ago, and we loved being able to hop over to Orlando from the Disney Magic for a day at the most magical place on earth! Our sailing was before they used the FastPass+ service, but I can give you an idea of how they handled it on last year's NYC voyages. Each Guest received a plastic ticket once aboard and preloaded on the ticket were three FastPass+ reservations for any attraction at any of the four theme parks! You can use all three in one park or take advantage of parking hopping and spread them out. Once you've used all three, you can add additional FastPass+ reservations through the My Disney Experience app or by visiting one of the in-park kiosks. Only one additional FastPass+ can be added at a time and will be based on availability. You will also need to link your plastic ticket to your My Disney Experience account to make additional selections. You can always visit Guest Services at any time if you need assistance while in the parks.

    Dining at the Walt Disney World Resort can be reserved 180 days prior to arrival. This is for anyone visiting the parks whether staying on-site, off-site or on a cruise ship! You can call (407) 939-1947 or use your My Disney Experience account to make your dining plans.  A credit card will be needed as a placeholder and will not be charged until you dine or if you do not show up or cancel prior to 11:59 p.m. EST the day prior.  

    Thank you for cruising by with this excellent question, Sandra!
