    My family and I are staying off site at a friend's home during our Disney vacation. How will Disney know when to open up my time frame for making ADR and Fast pass selections if I'm staying outside Disney? Thanks so much for your help!!

    Hello Chelsea,

    Once Guests begin planning their Walt Disney World vacation, I highly recommend setting up a My Disney Experience account. My Disney Experience is there to help organize and make planning for a Walt Disney World vacation easy.

    Guests, with a Walt Disney World Resort reservation, are able to link their resort reservation number. This qualifies them to begin booking Advance Dining Reservation 180 days in advance for their entire vacation or up to 10days after the start of their arrival date and make FastPass+ selection 60 days prior to the start of the first day of their vacation for their entire stay. 

    Guests, without a Walt Disney World Resort reservation, should link their Magic Your Way tickets to their My Disney Experience account. Because no resort reservation is linked to the account, it is clear the Guest can only make FastPass+ selection 30 days prior to each day they visit a Walt Disney World theme park. When making an Advance Dining Reservation, Guests without a resort reservation, can begin booking 180 days from the day of each day they wish to make a reservation.  

    I hope this has been helpful and if I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask and may your stay be filled with many magical and memorable moments.
