    Please advise if it is less expensive if we pre-purchase or Park Hopper passes online before we arrive. Also do we have to nominate our Fastpass+ rides prior to our arrival.

    Hi there Val,

    Thank you for coming to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I feel that it is always best to purchase your Park Hopper tickets in advance. The price of your tickets will not increase between now and the time you arrive. However, if you are a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to your arrival. This will give you a better chance of reserving some of the more popular and new attractions at Walt Disney World. Everyone in your travel party will need to have a My Disney Experience account set up and be added to your “Family and Friends List”. Everyone will also need to have their theme park ticket linked to their account prior to you signing on to make your FastPass+ selections. Only guests with a prepaid admission can make FastPass+ selections.

    You can make your selections online or on your smartphone or tablet using the My Disney Experience app.

    If you have any other questions, please visit us again. Have a magical time!
