    My family is military, and we just booked a trip to the military Shades of Green hotel. I know they don't participate in the magic bands, but can you tell me if you can book fast passes 60 days in advance? Also, do they qualify for extra magic hours?

    Hi Sarah,

    Before jumping into your answer, I want to take a second to thank your family for your dedication and service to our grateful nation. 

    All Guests of Walt Disney World Resort are encouraged to create a personalized My Disney Experience account, where you can customize your visit. Think of this as your centralized location for all of your theme park admission tickets, Advance Dining Reservations, Disney PhotoPass images, FastPass+ selections, and more. 

    Speaking of FastPass+, as a Guest of Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, you can reserve your access to your most anticipated attractions 30-days before you even arrive on property! Currently, you can schedule up to three experiences per day in advance. After you make those memories, simply use the My Disney Experience Mobile App on your phone or visit a FastPass+ kiosk to schedule a fourth selection. Continue scheduling your attractions one at a time until the end of the night for the best use of this complimentary benefit. It's fantastic!

    As a Shades of Green Guest, you can visit the four action-parked theme parks outside of normal operating time with Extra Magic Hours. I highly recommend that you check out which theme park is offering Extra Magic Hours for each day of your vacation, and try to plan your touring accordingly. You will really appreciate the shorter queues and room to spread out! 

    Please don't hesitate to let us know how else we can help as you plan your upcoming unforgettable Disney Parks vacation!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
