    Hi! My family has booked a cruise in Nov leaving from NY that includes a day at WDW. Can we book dining and fast passes for our day at the park prior to our arrival? If so, how? Thank you!

    Ahoy, Jenessa!

    I'm so excited to hEAR you've booked a Bahamian sailing from New York that includes a magical day at the Walt Disney World Resort. My family and I experienced this particular itinerary a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed visiting the parks when the ship docked at Port Canaveral. Everything about the day was seamless!

    FastPasses cannot be made ahead of time, but you will receive three FastPasses loaded on a card. You can use these three FastPasses at any attraction that accepts FastPass+ at any of the four parks. After you've used the first three FastPasses, you can select more as long as you link your park ticket to your My Disney Experience account. If you haven't already, you can create an account online before you leave and link the tickets using the My Disney Experience mobile app once you receive them on the ship. 

    Dining reservations can also be made online using My Disney Experience or by calling (407) 939-1947. Since you are within 180 days of your visit, you can make dining reservations at anytime. You do not need a resort reservation or tickets to make a dining reservations so once you are all set with a My Disney Experience account, you can call or browse what's available in the Dining Section of the Walt Disney World website. Restaurants do require a credit card to guarantee the reservation so you'll want to have one handy when you complete your request. This card will not be charged unless you do not show up or cancel within the allotted time (typically by 11:59 p.m. the day before the reservation). Once your reservation is secured, you'll receive an email confirmation.

    Jenessa, I hope I've steered you in the right direction. If we can assist you further with your plans, please write back!
