    We have purchased a vacation package . we have friends going the same time we are going. Can we link their magicbands with ours to get fast passes for the same time?

    Hi Kim and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! There is one piece of information I wish I had, and that is if your friends are also staying at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Guests who are staying on-property are able to begin making FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of their check-in date. Those staying off-property must wait until 30 days before their visit to any theme park to make their FastPass+ selections.

    If your friends are also staying on-property, then you can easily plan your FastPass+ choices to coincide. Simply add your friends to the Family & Friends list in your My Disney Experience account, including the email address that is tied to their account and park tickets.  Once they accept the invitation, you can begin selecting FastPass+ experiences for all of you as your window opens.

    Things get a little more complicated if your friends are not staying on-property. You can choose to go ahead and make your FastPass+ selections as your 60-day window opens and try to copy those selections to your friends as the 30-day window opens for them, using the Add Friends & Family to Existing FastPass+ link. However, it can be very difficult to get the same or overlapping FastPass+ time slots for the more popular attractions.  If you really want to ensure everyone has the same FastPass+ time slots, then you will need to wait until their 30-day window opens and select them all at the same time.

    I hope this information helps you with your FastPass+ planning. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
