    We will be staying in Daytona beach so How do I get a fast pass ? Do I order the colored bands through the disney store & activate them when we get to the parks? I see the bands are $12.95/each, is there an additional price for adding fast pass to it?

    Hi Holly!
    I'm so glad you see you're thinking well in advance of your upcoming trip! You're in good company-I'm quite a planner when it comes to my Disney vacations.

    You can purchase your park tickets online through My Disney Experience and your tickets will appear in your account for your party. The window for FastPass+ selections for your trip will open 30 days before you arrive. You will have to go into My Disney Experience each day and add your FastPass+ selections until all the days of your trip have been fulfilled.

    After purchasing your tickets on My Disney Experience, you will have to print out passes that you will have to bring with you to the ticket window once you reach the Walt Disney World Resort. These will have to be exchanged for your actual park tickets. If you have purchased Magic Bands, bring them with you and the Cast Member assisting you will put your park tickets on your bands when you make the exchange. Make sure to bring your ID with you when you make the exchange.

    Holly, I hope this advice helps you plan a fantastic Walt Disney World vacation!

    Best Wishes, 
    Amy B.
