    Hi, I finally broke the 100 days mark. What are the next steps for planning when I am staying on site at the Contemporary??!! Don't want to miss any steps! 93 days and excited!!!!!

    Hello, Susan!

    Your Walt Disney World vacation is just around the corner, and I can tell that you are getting very excited about the magic ahead! I'm happy to share a few important dates that will help you with your planning, but first things first -- Have you linked valid theme park admission to your Disney account? If you haven't already, make sure you do this before you hit the 60-day mark. You will need to have tickets linked to each person that you are traveling with so you can make FastPass+ selections.

    Also, if you would like to make arrangements for Character Dining or other special dining experiences, I'd like to encourage you to look into those options right away. Guests can make dining reservations up to 180 days in advance, and you are already well on your way to a magical Walt Disney World vacation.

    Disney's FastPass+ service helps guests to experience even more magic by reducing the amount of time spent waiting in lines for favorite attractions. You will be able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your trip, so make sure to mark that date on a calendar.

    As the guests of a Disney Resort hotel, your family will receive complimentary MagicBands for each person that is part of the hotel reservation. You have until about a month before your trip to personalize each MagicBand online, but if you don't want to receive the standard gray band, you may want to take care of this right away.

    I hope you and your family make many magical memories at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Susan! If you have any additional questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by the Moms Panel. Happy planning!
