    Hi Ray!

    I'm so excited to hear that you are planning a summer vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to plan on taking advantage of the FastPass+ System so you can make the most of your time in the theme parks. FastPass+ reservations will allow you to enjoy many of the attractions and entertainment events on your "must-do" list without having to wait in their Standby queues. You can make three advanced FastPass+ reservations for each of your theme park days and as a Disney Resort hotel Guest, you can make your reservations 60 days in advance of your check-in date!

    Just like you, I have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation coming up, so I was so excited to hear that Guests will soon be able to upgrade their complimentary MagicBands! There are some awesome graphic MagicBands available and it will be so nice to choose those for a vacation and receive them at a discounted price. While we know that this upgrade option is coming soon, there hasn't been an official date released for when Guests will be able to upgrade their MagicBands. So I recommend that you keep checking My Disney Experience to see if you can upgrade your MagicBands over the next month. Once the upgrade capability is available, all Guests with Disney Resort reservations whose MagicBands haven't already shipped will be able to take advantage of the upgrade.

    The Disney Imagineers are working on so many new things in the theme parks, Disney Resort hotel and Disney Springs for Guests to enjoy and many of them will be opening in time for your trip. Did you know a brand new restaurant was just announced a few days ago that will be opening this summer in Epcot's Japan pavilion? So be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for additional news and announcements about the fun you will be able to enjoy during your vacation!

    Come back to see us if we can help you with additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
