    I have 1 day park and a fastpass + what do I need to do before arriving to the park? How does it work?

    Hi Tiniya,

    I'm SO excited to see that you'll be at the most magical place on earth REALLY SOON! I hope you're looking forward to your trip!

    I'm also glad to hear that you've already purchased your theme park ticket! If it isn't already linked to your My Disney Experience account, you'll want to go ahead and do that here. Once it has been linked, you'll be able to make three FastPass+ selections for one theme park ahead of time, and I'd encourage you to do that as soon as you can. With FastPass+, you'll choose a one-hour window where you'll be able to skip the standby line and experience an attraction or experience with very little wait. You'll find that this wonderful (and complimentary!) service is a terrific time saver, so I'd definitely encourage you to maximize its use.

    You may also want to consider if you'd like to dine at a delicious Table-service restaurant. If so, you'll want to make dining reservations before you arrive as many of the restaurants fill up in advance.

    While there's nothing else you really need to do ahead of time, if this is your first time visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, I'd encourage you to read about the theme park(s) you'll be visiting before you go so that you're more familiar with it. When you arrive, you'll want to pick up a park map and a times guide with information about parades, fireworks, character greeting opportunities, and shows for the day you'll be there, then prepare yourself for a day of magic and fun!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tiniya, and please let us know if you have any other questions. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
