    I have purchased 6 tickets through the military and have set up fast pass experiences using those tickets. My husband will be purchasing his ticket at Epcot, are we able to add his ticket to our fast pass rides?

    Hi Gina,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted to answer this question because Fast Pass+ is absolutely one of my favorite planning tools.

    You can certainly try to add a guest to your Fast Pass+ party in My Disney Experience after your husband buys his ticket in Epcot. While this should be possible, it is not absolutely guaranteed. I did call to speak with a cast member at 407-939-4357 to verify my answer. He also indicated that, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you might have a better chance of adding your husband to the Fast Pass+ party if he is added to your resort reservation.  Personally, I suggest that, if possible, your husband purchase his ticket online so that you can go ahead and link that ticket to your My Disney Experience account and make Fast Pass+ selections for him as soon as possible.

    If you have not already mapped out your Fast Pass+ selections so that they are back to back in terms of time window and close in geographic proximity, review your selections with those considerations in mind also. While we have made Fast Pass+ selections for different times of the day, we now typically book them all one right after another and in the morning so that we can start making additional Fast Pass+ selections in the afternoon. I also pay much closer attention to the location of our selections so that we are not trekking from one end of a park to another and back again just to do our rides.

    Gina, I hope you get that additional ticket purchased as soon as possible. I would hate for your husband not to be able to ride with the group. The last thing you want is to look at your PhotoPass photos or videos from the rides and he is missing - interesting vacation story but probably not the one you want!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
