    If you purchase a “fantasyland fun before the park opens” package, do you get to use the FastPass lane between 9 am and 10 am after the park opens to the public because you have the “event wristband”?

    Dear Marcia,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland!

    This is absolutely an extra magical event, and though I have never done it, I have heard from fellow Moms Panelists that it is just as awesome as it appears!

    Your event wristbands will work before park opening, but then will not get you into FastPass+ queues after other guests arrive to the Magic Kingdom, just the regular queues. What my colleagues have recommended is that you arrive by 7:30am at the latest to the gates, and then proceed to enjoy the three open attractions as many times as you can before 9am. After other park guests begin to arrive, I recommend that you head to nearby attractions (Haunted Mansion, maybe?) in order to maximize your time. Then, around 9:30am, be sure not to forget to head to Pinocchio Village Haus for some scrumptious breakfast before they close that up at 10am. 

    You could then time your three pre-selected FastPass+ choices for around 10-11am, 11am-12 noon, and 12 noon-1pm, if that works for your family!

    In my opinion, that is the best way to maximize your experience!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
