    Hi!We joined DVC last year(!!!) so the whole DVC angle is new to us so I’m just clarifying FP+.Before, I always booked MYW so we had our park tickets when it was time to make our FP.Do we have to have them(or passes)before we can make them now? TY!!

    Hi there, Brandy!

    Congratulations on your new Disney Vacation Club membership! It's been one of the best decisions that I've ever made, so I hope you find the same to be true for your family. Membership definitely has its benefits, so you're in for a treat on your upcoming vacation.

    In order to book your FastPass+ reservations, first you'll need to make sure that your resort reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account. This is basically the same as what you've done in the past with your vacation packages, and this will ensure that you are able to book 60 days in advance. Next, you will need to make sure that everyone in your family has a park ticket or Annual Pass linked in My Disney Experience as well. So really not much will be different from what you're used to doing except that you'll purchase your tickets separately and will then need to link them to your account. It's that easy! If for any reason you have problems linking your resort reservation or your tickets, just call the support line and a friendly Cast Member can assist you.

    I hope this helps, and I really hope you enjoy your first vacation as Disney Vacation Club Members. Please let us know if you think of anything else and have a magical day!
