    Ira from TX Asked

    Hello! we are planning a disneyworld trip next march and will be staying at our DVC home, Old Key West! what are the current timelines now for advance booking? Dining, fastpass, etc. Thank you!

    "Welcome home," Ira and thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Ira, I love Disney's Old Key West Resort and the laid back vibe of this property (not to mention the fried chicken at Olivia's Cafe)! On our last visit, my kids spent every free evening in the Sandcastle Pool and only went to bed when the pool closed!

    Now, Ira, let's talk about your visit. Currently the Fastpass+ system remains on pause and we haven't yet heard when (or if) this perk might return. To keep up-to-date on any news, please bookmark the Disney Parks Blog as information will be shared there first. While I don't have information regarding Fastpasses, I will share that advanced dining reservation can be booked 60 days in advance of your check-in date for the length of your stay (up to 10 days).

    Finally, Ira, while you won't need to do any pre-planning to enjoy this perk, it was recently announced that beginning in October 2021, Disney Resorts Collection hotel guests will enjoy early theme park access to EVERY park, EVERY day. If you're an early riser this is a great opportunity to enjoy a morning with lower crowds. In addition, guests of Disney Vacation Club Resorts (and other Deluxe resorts) will have special evening access on select nights. I can't wait to take advantage of this special time as late nights in the parks are my favorite!

    Ira, I hope this information is helpful as you're looking ahead to your next visit "home." Best wishes for a Magical stay. If you have additional questions, please come on back to planDisney.
