    Hi, I’m planning our first ever trip to WDW. And I was wondering, since they don’t ship the magic bands internationallay how am I supposed to make my FP+ choices when my 60 day window becomes available?

    Hi Megan, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for sending us your fantastic question.  Being from Canada, there are a few differences when booking a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and not receiving MagicBands until arriving at your Resort Hotel is one of the biggest differences compared to our American friends.  

    Even though we won’t receive MagicBands prior to our arrival, MagicBands aren’t necessary to make FastPass+ Selections. FastPass+ Selections are linked to your Theme Park Tickets which can be found in your My Disney Experience Account.  You may have to link your Theme Park Tickets if they aren’t already in your account.  To do this, login to my Disney Experience, select the “My Reservations and Tickets” from the drop down menu and follow the prompts to link your Theme Park Tickets.  

    In order to make your FastPass+ Selections at the 60 day mark, simply login to My Disney Experience and select the FastPass+ tab from the drop down menu on the top right hand side.  Prior to your 60 day window, make sure that your entire party is linked to you in My Disney Experience in order to make selections for everyone at once.  To add people to your Family and Friends list, login to My Disney Experience and select the “My Family and Friends List” from the drop down menu.  From there follow the instructions to add everyone you would like!  This way only one person has to make selections and there is no need to co-ordinate times since you are making the selections for your entire party. 

    I hope you have a fantastic time at Walt Disney World Resort, Megan.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
