    We have planned our vacation for July 9-16, 2016. My question is about park tickets and Fast Pass+. Do the tickets come with fast Pass already included and we just reserve our fast passes? How many fast Pass can we have for our stay?

    Hi Gretchen!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this question about theme park tickets and the FastPass+ system. The FastPass+ system is a great way to plan ahead before arriving at Walt Disney World Resort.

    When you purchase a theme park ticket, you will have the ability to make up to three FastPass+ selections per day of your theme park ticket. These three FastPass+ selections must be in the same park. I like to schedule our FastPass+ selections earlier in the day because once you have used your third FastPass+ selection, you will have the ability to make additional FastPass+ selections at in-park kiosks. You make these additional FastPass+ selections one at a time, and the additional selections can be at a different theme park from the first three.

    Keep in mind your FastPass+ booking window. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days before check-in for the entire length of your stay. If you are not staying on property, you can start making your selections 30 days before your arrival. I recommend making your FastPass+ selections as soon as your booking window opens so that you have the best selection of options to choose from.

    To make your FastPass+ reservations, be sure that everyone in your travel party has a profile in My Disney Experience. When you sign into My Disney Experience, go to the FastPass+ page, and click on "New FastPass+" to get started.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Gretchen! Please stop back and let me know if you have any additional questions about your upcoming vacation.

    Wishing you magical memories!
