    I’ve read about perks of staying on property. If we only stay on property for the first half of our trip, which benefits carry over and which ones end when we switch resorts? (Ex- extra morning hours, 60 day fast pass reservations, 180 dining resev. Etc)

    Hi Camille,

    So happy you are planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. And the benefits of staying at Disney Resort Hotels are incredible.

    From Extra Magic Hours, to the ability to book FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance, to complimentary transportation to and from Orlando International Airport with Disney's Magical Express, the benefits are countless. And staying onsite is the only way to take advantage of a Dining Plan, an awesome way to prepay for your meals. These benefits start from the moment you Check-In to your Resort Hotel, and are good until midnight of your Check-Out day.

    You can book FastPass+ selections 60 days before your Check-In for your entire stay. After this, you can make additional FastPass+ 60 days in advance for each day after your Check-Out. Similarly, you can book advanced dining reservations 180 days before your Check-In for your entire stay. After this, you can make additional reservations 180 days in advance. Your MagicBand will continue to work for tickets and FastPass+, but will not be valid for charging after your Check-Out.

    One last tip: Memory Maker is a great way to bring home all your memories in photos and videos taken by the Disney PhotoPass Service photographers within the previous 30 days. Happy planning!
