    With free dining can we just purchase the minimum required hopper passes (2 days) through disney and then use tickets we already have from another site in addition to the hoppers? Would this effect our ability to use magicbands, fastpass and dining?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole! We’re so happy you stopped by.

    I’m thrilled to learn you are planning a visit while taking advantage of such a great special offer! As a budget conscious Disney momma, I love being able to stretch those Disney dollars to the max! I hope you enjoy all the fun and delicious dining options available throughout the Walt Disney World Resort during your visit.

    Nicole, I checked with a Cast Member to be sure, but they confirmed that as long as you purchase the theme park tickets necessary to be eligible for the promotion, if any additional tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account, your booking windows won’t be affected. So, with your resort hotel reservation, you’ll be able to access your FastPass+ booking window 60-days in advance and your dining reservations will be 180-days in advance.

    I hope you enjoy all the benefits that come with staying on property! Be sure to look into all your resort hotel recreation and activities while you are there. There is always something magical happening at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I hope you have a magical day. Please do come back and see us again soon!
