    just received my tickets in the mail today, are family trip is in November can we link up our tickets now and start playing for November? first time to Disney world so excited

    Hi Crystal,

    How fun that you're planning your very first visit to the most magical place on earth! I'm SO excited for you and just know that you're going to LOVE it!

    Yes, if you have your tickets, you'll definitely want to go ahead and link them to your My Disney Experience account. By doing so, you'll be able to make three FastPass+ selections per day 60 days in advance if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel or 30 days ahead of time if you're staying elsewhere. This wonderful service allows you to skip the standby lines and is a great time saver! Plus, did you know that once you've enjoyed those initial three selections that you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to make additional FastPass+ selections, one at a time, until the theme parks close? It's awesome!

    One other thing that you can do now to plan for an amazing vacation is to make dining reservations if you'd like to try any Table-service restaurants during your trip. I'd definitely recommend trying one of the wonderful character dining opportunities, and you'll also find entertaining dinner shows and a wide variety of restaurants with delicious food to please any palate!

    As a first-time Guest, be sure to pick up a complimentary "My First Visit" button when you arrive, and please feel free to ask for assistance from any Cast Member. They're happy to help do all they can to make sure your vacation is perfect!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Crystal, and please let us know how else we can help you as you're planning your trip! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
