    Kathleen from MI Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    We are a family of 8 (including one Florida resident). When the Florida resident shows his residency at ticket counter is he automatically linked to use his fast passes or will we still have to do something on My Disney Experience to be linked?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kathleen!

    I hope you are excited about a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with your extended family! Have you already added Memory Maker to your vacation package? Just one purchase can collect the memories of all the guests visiting together as long as they are all linked to the My Disney Experience account that purchased it. You won’t want to skip out on all the memories captured during your enchanted vacation!

    Kathleen, for guests to pre-book FastPass+, they must have a valid theme park ticket linked to their My Disney Experience account. This process is the same for guests with Florida Resident tickets. The ticket won’t be active until the guest (age 18+) shows proof of residency upon arrival at the parks, but they will be able to book FastPasses before then.

    Once the guest arrives and activates the ticket, they will be good to go to enjoy the magic along with any plans made in advance on the My Disney Experience site.

    Don’t forget to mark your calendar with all the important planning dates. If you’re staying inside the magic, you can start booking all your FP+ 60-days before arriving; 30-days prior if staying off property. And for all your delicious meals that will bring the family together, you can make all your advanced dining reservations as early as 180-days in advance.

    I hope this information answered your question. If you have any more questions or would like planning tips, be sure to stop by and see us again.

    Wishing you a magical day and an even more magical stay,
