    hi this might be a dumb question but i have never been to disney which hotels are the ones i need to be staying at to be able to use fast pass? i see it says disney Resorts but i dont know what that means and what hotels fall under that.. thanks in advance

    Hello, Caroline,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Staying at a Disney Resort provides guests with many different benefits such as being able to make Disney Dining reservations a bit earlier, being able to make FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance, being able to utilize complimentary Disney's Magical Express transportation to/from the Orlando International Airport, and being able to enjoy Extra Magic Hours as well as other perks. 

    There are currently many different Disney Resorts available for guests that reflect a variety of budgets, themes, and amenities.  You can see the comprehensive list of participating Disney Resorts by clicking on the link I provided. In addition, Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort allow guests to make FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance, too, but not all of the above resort benefits apply. 

    Also, you don't have to be a Disney Resort guest to enjoy FastPass+. They are a benefit of all guests visiting the theme parks; however, those staying at a Disney Resort get access to them earlier.

    If you have any further questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help!  -Kara
