    When should I scan my passes to the App?

    Jaclyn Ruth,

    Thank you for your question!

    One of the things that I love the most about My Disney Experience and the My Disney Experience App is having all of my dining reservations, theme park pass information, resort hotel details, FastPass+ attractions choices and other plans in a single place. The organization and convenience make the different steps of planning a Walt Disney World vacation far easier than it was in the past. Before My Disney Experience came along, I was famous among my circle of friends for making wallet-sized cards that had all those details in one place, so that I could get that information on the go. The downside to that plan was how poorly printer paper stands up the raging flood waters of Kali River Rapids at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park!

    To answer your question, while I don't think there is necessarily a required time frame to enter them into your My Disney Experience account, I would recommend that putting them in once you get them will save you the headaches of having to track down a lost confirmation number if something was misplaced. I will also point out that for some services, like Disney's Magical Express or the Disney Dining Plan, you would have to have those plans in place a certain amount of time in advance of starting your vacation. So for me, I would want everything in place at least 3 weeks before my trip. I would also have my resort confirmation number in 190 days before the trip, if applicable, so that I could make Advanced Dining reservations. As for ticket passes, which I think was your initial question, I would also want them in at least 60+ days ahead of time as well. 

    I hope that this helps? Certainly write is back for any follow up questions you may have!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
