    My husband and I are planning our vacation for April 10 2017. I purchase 3 days tickets online I am wondering where we get our fast pass from and do we have to load the ride and attractions ahead of time.

    Hi Michelle,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am happy to help you with the process of making Disney FastPass+ selections. Making these selections will allow you to experience some attractions with shorter wait times.

    You have completed the first step, which is to purchase your Walt Disney World theme park tickets. Next, in order to select your Disney FastPass+ experiences from home, you need to set up a My Disney Experience account. Then you will be able to link your Walt Disney World tickets in this account, and then make your Disney FastPass+ selections. These selections will be linked to your MagicBand or Card so that you will have them with you when in the theme park.

    I do recommend that you make your Disney FastPass+ selections ahead of time from home. This way, you will be ready to go when you arrive at the theme park. By making these selections ahead of time, you are also more likely to get the times and attractions that you want for your Disney FastPass+ selections. If you are not able to make these ahead of time, do not worry, you will still be able to make them in the theme parks at Disney FastPass+ kiosks. You can also make and manage your Disney FastPass+ selections from the My Disney Experience mobile app, so do consider downloading that.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Michelle! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
