    I’ve purchased a good neighbour hotel accommodation & ticket package. I want to use fast pass before we arrive at the hotel and not sure how I access my tickets pre-arrival at the hotel?

    Hi there, Katrina! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    You bring up a great question about how to access the Fastpass+ system. My family and utilize Fastpass+ each and every time we visit the Walt Disney World Resort and really feel like it maximizes our time in the parks and gives us a basic itinerary for the day! 

    Katrina, since you have already booked a package at one of the Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotels, you're halfway there! If you haven't already done so, go ahead and create a My Disney Experience account. This is where all of your plans will be organized and you will book your Fastpass+ experiences.

    After you have your My Disney Experience account created, the next thing you should do is link the tickets you purchased to that account. To do this, click on "My Plans" and then "Park Tickets." Since you've already purchased your tickets with your package, you should have a ticket ID number that is 12-20 digits. Likely this is in your confirmation email. If you don't have an email or confirmation with your ticket number, I would reach out to your original booking contact and get this number. Once the tickets are successfully linked they will show up on your My Disney Experience account and you can begin making your Fastpass+ selections 30 days in advance. 

    To start planning your Fastpass+ selections, take a few minutes and browse through the attractions. A few popular ones I would recommend if they are available would be Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park, Soarin' Around the World at Epcot, Slinky Dog Dash at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Remember, you can select 3 per day, per park. I try to schedule ours earlier in the day so that we have a better chance of selecting a fourth Fastpass+ in the evening. 

    I hope this helps as you are preparing for your Magical vacation!
    Thanks for stopping by,
