    Sailing on the Disney magic 11/3 (NYC to Orlando/Bahamas) - silver status - can we start signing up for fastpass reservations for the day that will be in the theme parks?

    Hi there, Christine Marie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!!  I am so excited for your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation aboard the Disney Magic!  My family sailed the same itinerary last year and it was so great for so many reasons!!  It was my boys’ first time to New York City and they were in awe seeing the Statue of Liberty for the first time from the pool deck!  I think they – and I – will remember that forever!  Add a stop at Walt Disney World Resort to visit the theme parks plus a stop at Castaway Cay and you have the BEST vacation planned!

    Guess what?!?!  The Park Hopper ticket that you will receive will be loaded with three FastPass+ selections that you can use WITHOUT pre-selecting!!  I like to think of them as “magical FastPass+”!!  You will simply visit the FastPass+ line and scan your card and you will be able to enter the FastPass+ queue!  Once you’ve used your three for the day then you can visit the kiosks to add them on one at a time!  Currently the attractions within Pandora - The World of Avatar and Toy Story Land are restricted, but check once onboard to see if anything has changed!

    When your online booking window opens (75 days prior to sailing for silver Castaway Club members), you will want to reserve a departure time ticket to head to the theme parks.  You can also select which theme park you want to start your day out at…of course with the Park Hopper ticket you can visit one or all four during your day there!!  The last buses leave the theme parks at closing time, usually after the fireworks!

    Wishing you a magical adventure with many memories made!!

    Happy Sailing!
