    I'm confused on the fast passes...do I get those when we arrive or when it closer to date?

    Hi Mary Beth!

    The FastPass+ service is one of the best things offered at the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks. Here's how it works. You first have to sign up for your My Disney Experience Account. Be sure to link your resort reservation (if applicable) and your tickets to your account. Once that is done, you will be able to make three FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance to your arrival date. If you are staying at a Disney Resort, you will be able to make selections 60 days in advance. Once you have redeemed the three FastPasses or the last arrival window has passed, you can visit one of the FastPass+ Kiosks to obtain an additional selection or via the My Disney Experience App. After you redeem the additional selection, you can return to the kiosk to make more selections, however always one at a time. If your ticket includes a Park Hopper Option, after you use your initial FastPass+ selections at one park, you’ll be able to make additional FastPass+ selections at a kiosk (one at a time) or via the My Disney Experience App at the second park you visit that day.
