    We are planning a visit to the Disney World in November 2017, around Thanksgiving week. How far out can we start planning for Fast Pass and our dining plan?

    Hello Dennis! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    While it may seem like 6 months is well-in-advance of your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation, the planning for your Endlessly Magical experience begins now.

    Magic Your Way Vacation Packages that include the Disney Dining Plan on stays for November 2017 are available now. You may make reservations through the Walt Disney World Resort website or by contacting a Cast Member at (407)939-1936.

    The 180-day window for Advanced Dining Reservations at Walt Disney World Resort Dining Locations for November 2017 is already open for most of November 2017. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you may book up to 10 days of Advanced Dining Reservations beginning on the first day of your vacation at the 180-day mark.

    You may be able to link your Table-Service Advanced Dining Reservations directly to your Disney Dining Plan(if it is connected through your My Disney Experience Account) when booking, however do not be concerned if you cannot as Disney Dining Plan credits may be redeemed directly at the Restaurants.

    FastPass+ Selections
    may be made up to 60 days in advance for all Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel with Theme Park Tickets connected through a My Disney Experience Account. The number of days for which your book FastPass+ Selections must equal the number of Theme Park Tickets Days you have linked to your account.

    Happy Planning!
