    Hello, this is our first trip to Disney world and we are about 3 months out. I would like to purchase our tickets but am a little confused about Fastpasses, do they automatically come with the purchased tickets?

    Hi Veronica,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. How exciting to be planning your first trip to Walt Disney World! Now is a great time to purchase your Walt Disney World tickets. I am happy to share with you about the Disney FastPass+ system!

    I am also very happy to let you know that Disney FastPass+ system is available to you with your theme park tickets. You do not have to pay any extra for Disney FastPass+ service! When you purchase your tickets, be sure that they are linked to your My Disney Experience account. From this account, you will be able to make up to three Disney FastPass+ selections per day. These selections will allow you to experience some attractions each day with reduced wait times. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can make these selections beginning 60 days ahead of your check-in date. If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can make them 30 days ahead of each day you plan to visit a theme park.

    I recommend making Disney FastPass+ selections for early in the day, because once you have used your third pre-selected Disney FastPass+ selection, you can make a fourth selection from an in-park kiosk or your mobile phone using the My Disney Experience mobile app. Once you have used the fourth selection you can make a fifth selection, and so on and so forth throughout the day depending on availability.

    I hope that this helps to clarify the Disney FastPass+ system for you, Veronica. Please do write back if you have any further questions as you plan!
