    We are planning to stay at art of animation for 3 nights, arriving on the evening of the first night. We have bought our Disney park tickets through a separate company. Can we still book fast passes 60 days in advance and what days would that apply?

    Hi Sharon,

    I'm so excited for your upcoming vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! You're going to love staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort! It's such a fun Resort that does a fantastic job encompassing the magic of Disney. I'd encourage you to spend time just strolling around the grounds and enjoying all of the Characters and theming. Also, did you know The Big Blue Pool has special underwater sounds!?  Be sure to check it out!

    Since you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, your FastPass+ selection window will open 60 days prior to your arrival. Even though you're arriving late on your first day and you may not even visit a theme park that day, you'll still be able to make FastPass+ selections for the entire length of your stay 60 days before that point. That's just one of the great perks of staying at a Disney Resort hotel! You'll also receive complimentary MagicBands, have the ability to make advanced dining reservations 180 days before your arrival for the entire length of your stay, enjoy free transportation to and from Orlando International Airport through Disney's Magical Express, gain additional access to the theme parks with Extra Magic Hours, and best of all, you won't ever have to leave the magic!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sharon, and have a truly amazing vacation!
