    We are staying on property 1 night are the benefits for early (60 day advance) reserving of fast passes and extra magic hours for the day of check in or the day of check out?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Erica!

    In just a few months you will be enjoying your quick summer getaway at the Walt Disney World Resort! I am happy to confirm that no matter how many nights you decide to Be Our Guest, you will still be able to enjoy all the benefits offered to visitors staying at a Disney Resort hotel.

    These benefits are available from the day you check in until midnight of the day of check-out, so besides having early access to FastPass+ planning up to 60 days prior to check-in, you will also be welcome to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours.

    Erica, be sure to link valid theme park admission tickets to your Disney account to start making FastPass+ selections starting at 7:00 A.M. Eastern Time as soon as you hit the 60-day mark. In addition, don’t forget to add loved ones to your Family and Friends List on My Disney Experience, this way you will be able to plan together in a very convenient way.

    Moms Panel tip: download the My Disney Experience mobile app to have every aspect of your visit on the palm of your hands, including FastPass+ planning, dining reservations and much more. One of my favorite features is Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, which lets you order ahead and save time! Simply choose an available restaurant, make your selections, pay using a valid credit or debit card, or Disney Dining Plan credits, and once you arrive at the restaurant select the “I’m Here, Prepare My Order” option and the kitchen will start your order. When you receive a notification that your order is ready, pick it up at the “Mobile Order Pick Up” counter.

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope this helps you while planning and that you stop by once again real soon!

    Best magical wishes,
