    I’m 38 days out from making fast pass selections, how do I accomplish this for my entire party of 17 people. All reservations are linked, but we don’t have magic bands yet.

    Hi Danielle,

    It sounds like you're planning a wonderful getaway to the most magical place on earth with lots of Mouseketeers! You guys are going to have a BLAST together and will surely make memories to last a lifetime!

    I have good news for you. As long as each Guest has a valid ticket linked to their name and your entire party is connected through My Disney Experience via Family & Friends, you should be all set to make your FastPass+ selections when your window opens. You won't need a MagicBand to make your selections. In fact, no data is stored on the MagicBands themselves; MagicBands simply link back to your My Disney Experience account, so you can feel free to add them later.

    When your FastPass+ planning window opens at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time 60 days ahead of time if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel or 30 days ahead of time if you're staying elsewhere, you'll simply select all of the Guests in your FastPass+ party and select the attractions or experiences and times for which you'd like to plan your FastPass+ selections. In fact, if you'd like to test it now to make sure it will work, you may simply try to make FastPass+ selections for any day within the next 30 days. Just be sure to cancel any FastPass+ selections you don't really want both as a courtesy to other Guests and so that your ticket will be available to make selections for the day(s) you'll actually be visiting.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Danielle, and please let us know if we can help with anything else! I hope that you all have a truly magical vacation!
