    If I stay in the park and purchase hopper park tickets do I also get fast pass or do I have to purchase it separate?

    Hi, Sandra!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this question about Disney's FastPass+ service. I have great news for you. You do not purchase FastPass+ selections separately because there is no additional cost for Disney's FastPass+ service. 

    When you purchase theme park tickets and link them to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections for 3 attractions per day. It's important to note that the 3 FastPass+ selections you can make on each day must all be in the same theme park (and that's true even if you purchase the Park Hopper Option). However, once you use your 3 FastPass+ selections, you can then make additional FastPass+ selections (one at a time) at FastPass+ Kiosks located throughout the theme parks.      

    So, when can you start making those FastPass+ selections? Your FastPass+ booking window is determined by whether you have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days before check-in. Guests who are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can start making FastPass+ selections 30 days before arrival. 

    I hope this helps with your planning! Wishing you magical memories!
