    Hi Kirsten - another Magic Bands question - I have heard we can book Fastpasses in advance. Are these linked to our bands, and how many can we reserve per day? Are there any attractions not included, and how do I find out which ones? Thanks!

    Hello again Susan!

    If your next visit to Walt Disney World in 2014 includes a stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you will most likely be using the new MagicBand technology which includes the ability to reserve some of the most popular attractions in advance using FastPass+

    I've included a link for you just above which explains much about this great new system. Your FastPass+ selections can be chosen up to 60 days prior to your arrival on site. Currently, the number of attractions available to choose is 3 per day at one of the four theme parks per day. I've had the pleasure of utilizing the system myself already late this year and was delighted to be given a 4th 'bonus' FastPass+ at Magic Kingdom Park! I'm uncertain as to whether this surprise 4th pass will continue or if it was just a fun bonus during the testing period.

    Your FastPass+ selections will indeed be connected to your MagicBands and you'll use your bands to confirm your entry privilege at each attraction you've preselected.

    Although attractions, entertainment, character greetings, parades and even some fireworks shows at all four parks are already set up for FastPass+, not all shows and attractions will utilize the system. Under the new FastPass+, there are more than double the number of included attractions as there were under the regular, paper FastPass system. To see if your favourites are included, simply visit the Attractions page on the Walt Disney World website and you'll see mention in the attraction's description.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you begin planning your next Walt Disney World vacation Susan!
