    I have Disney tickets with flexible dates, we are staying in november in a Disney hotel, I have booked the tickets separately from the hotels, everything is linked in the my Disney exp. app. how do they know that I can use the FP 2 months in advance?

    Hi Nancy,

    I hope that you're counting down the days until all of the magic and fun because you'll be at "The Most Magical Place on Earth" before you know it! SO exciting! I'm glad to hear that your tickets are purchased, your Disney Resort hotel room is booked, and you're already thinking about your FastPass+ selections. You are ON it!

    As long as you have valid Flexible Date Option theme park tickets purchased and linked to your My Disney Experience account, you'll have the ability to make FastPass+ selections at any point within the next 30 days. That planning window just slides one day further out each day. Once you hit 7:00 a.m. Eastern time 60 days before your Disney Resort hotel check-in date, though, the system will automagically open for you to make FastPass+ plans throughout your entire Disney Resort hotel stay, and you'll be able to make selections for as many days as you have theme park tickets. It's like the Fairy Godmother just waves her wand with a "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo" and your extended FastPass+ planning window opens!

    One tip I have for you...for some of the more popular attractions like Avatar Flight of Passage, Slinky Dog Dash, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, I'd suggest looking for those towards the end of your trip. The further out you look, the more availability and selection you'll find. I'm sending some pixie dust that you find the perfect FastPass+ selections for your trip!

    Thanks so much for visiting us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nancy, and please feel free to keep your great questions coming as we're always here and happy to help. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
