    Hi Jamie, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Planning a first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is super exciting and I am thrilled to share this journey with you. Let's do this!

    I'm happy to tell you that FastPass+ is complimentary to all guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, and you can book three of them prior to your arrival and add one new FastPass+ reservation at a time once you have used the first three. You will be able to do that through your phone, on the My Disney Experience App. It is truly magical, isn't it?

    Because your arrival date is March 11th, your FastPass+ reservation window will be open 30 days before, on February 9th, 7 a.m Eastern Time. I'd advise you to download the My Disney Experience App and link your tickets before that, so you are able to book the best ones once it is open.

    Some of the most popular attractions are Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean and Peter Pan's Flight. Those are the ones you want to prioritize when making your Magic Kingdom Park FastPass+ arrangements.

    Because you have a few days before February 9th, I'd also advise you to make your dining reservations, as some of the restaurants are truly remarkable and reservations are recommended. Wouldn't it be awesome to be a Guest at Beast's Castle?

    Please come back with more questions - the Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to help you plan for an amazing first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    May the magic be with you!
