    How far in advance can you book fast pass+? Also I'm waiting for my reservation # are the magic bands free if you get standard colors with your Disney package.

    Hi Karen,

    If you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, and have also purchased tickets in advance, you can start making FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to your check-in date (for the entire length of your vacation). When I arrange my own family's FastPass+ selections, I'm typically able to lock in our choices starting at midnight (EST) on that 60-day mark. If you are staying off-property, you will be able to secure those FastPass+ choices 30 days in advance of each theme park visit day (one-day-at-a-time).

    I hope your reservation is for a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. If that is the case, your MagicBands are included as part of your Disney vacation package. The MagicBands will be shipped to your home provided customization took place via your My Disney Experience account at least 10 days before your arrival date on Disney property. Currently those MagicBands come in 8 solid colors—pink, green, red, orange, yellow, blue, gray, and now purple too!

    Disney Mom Tip: You may order MagicBands from the Disney Store online, or even from your mobile device using the Shop Disney Parks app. To design your own MagicBands, please visit the MagicBand on Demand store in Magic Kingdom Park. You can also purchase MagicBandits and MagicSliders to decorate your MagicBands and make them uniquely yours.

    Wishing you an unforgettable vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort!
