    Hello! I'm planning a trip for December 2020 the week before Christmas. I know I can only book the room 499 days in advance to get our selected room. When do I need to book the park tickets by? And would it be smart to get the FastPass+?

    Hi Chelsea,

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a question for us. We're always happy to help! I know you must be excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and I'm so glad to hear that you're planning so far in advance. It will really make a difference since you'll have plenty of time to think about all of the little details.

    You're absolutely right that Disney Resort Hotel room-only reservations can be made 499 days in advance. It also shouldn't be long before the package prices for 2020 will be announced and those will be available for booking in case you're interested in a package with tickets and a dining plan. Otherwise, you can purchase your theme park tickets at any time. Just make sure to double check for any restrictions or an expiration date before you buy them. Also, FastPass+ is included with each theme park ticket so you'll be able to make three FastPass+ reservations per day of your stay. If you have a Disney Resort Hotel reservation, you can make those 60 days prior to your check-in date, and you'll need to have your tickets purchased and linked in your My Disney Experience account in order to make those. 

    Good luck with your planning and please let us know if we can help with anything else. Have a magical day!
