    If I am staying onsite at Disney with three family members, and three are staying offsite (non-Disney hotel) is it possible for me to book fast passes for the whole party if all have active tickets and are all linked in My Disney Experience app?

    Hi Karen,

    It sounds like you're planning a wonderful vacation with lots of loved ones! I'm so excited for your family to get to experience the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation together!

    I'm really happy to let you know that yes, if you all have valid tickets linked to your My Disney Experience accounts and you're connected via your Family & Friends list, you are able to make FastPass+ selections together. When you log in and begin making selections, it will ask you to create a FastPass+ party and you'll be able to select all the Mouseketeers you'd like to include. However, since some of the Guests in your party are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel and their FastPass+ selection window opens later than yours, you or one of the Guests staying with you on-site need to be the one to make the selections. As long as you're selecting the same FastPass+ attraction and return time, the Guests staying off-site will be grandfathered in to your 60-day selection window. How's that for some pixie-dusted magic?

    The other benefit to being connected via the My Disney Experience Family & Friends list is that you'll be able to view each other's PhotoPass photos. If one of you has purchased Memory Maker, you'll be able to download and share all of the photos captured within your group, turning your experiences together into wonderful life-long memories!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Karen, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you and your entire family have a truly magical vacation!
