    We are planning our first trip to WDW, and wanted to know if we have to stay at a Disney resort to purchase a Dining pass? Fast pass?

    Hi Heather!

    Planning your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation is going to be so much fun!  The Disney Dining Plan is an option available exclusively to guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels with Magic Your Way Packages. As a Disney Resort hotel guest, you will have the opportunity to make your FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to your arrival date for the entire length of your stay. However, if you choose to stay off property, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections about 30 days prior to each day of your planned theme park visits. I hope this helps.

    Please let us know if you require additional assistance prior to your arrival. 

    Have a magical first visit!
