    We are staying at Bonnet Creek Near Disney springs on our next trip. Are fast passes still only 30days out or are they included in the new 60 days out? Also are they able to make your magic band your room key? Thank you!

    So happy to see you back here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amanda! I see that you have a plan in the works for a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort for next spring. How exciting!

    My family and I have explored so many options during our visits. We’ve stayed on site, at Good Neighbor Hotels and Disney Springs Area hotels. It sounds like your hotel is part of the Walt Disney World Gateway Hotels. These hotels are located very close to the theme parks and other fun Walt Disney World Resort attractions, making them very convenient. However, guests staying at these hotels are not able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days before their visit, they do not receive complimentary MagicBands and cannot open their room doors with a MagicBand.

    Benefits like the ones I mentioned above, are reserved for guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Guests at Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels can enjoy some benefits like the ability to take part in Extra Magic Hours, make FastPass+ selections 60 days before their visit and they receive complimentary transportation to and from the theme parks. 

    Amanda, you will still be able to make dining reservations at Walt Disney World Resort restaurants 180 days before your visit. You will also be able to make your FastPass+ selections 30 days before your trip, which will save you lots of time while waiting to ride your favorite attractions!

    There’s still plenty of planning to be done before your magical trip. Please feel free to send us any additional questions you may have. Helping you figure out all the details of your vacation to the happiest place on earth is one of our favorite things to do!
