    I just purchased tickets to Magic Kingdom. Should I buy a FastPass to help with the lines? Or is there a extra thing that you purchase to bypass lines?

    Hi Dana,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The FastPass+ system is a great way to plan ahead before arriving at the Happiest Place on Earth! I'm happy to let you know that FastPass+ service is included with the purchase of theme park tickets!

    When you purchase a theme park ticket, you will have the ability to make up to three FastPass+ selections per day of your theme park ticket. These three initial FastPass+ selections must be in the same theme park. Once you have used your third FastPass+ selection, you will have the ability to make additional FastPass+ selections, one at a time, up until theme park closing! You can make these selections right on the My Disney Experience Mobile app.

    Quick Tip: Be sure to keep in mind your FastPass+ booking window. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days before check-in for the length of your stay. If you are staying off-site, you can start making your selections 30 days before your arrival.

    I hope this answers your question, Dana. Please stop back again with any other questions!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
