    We're staying at the Swan, and are annual passholders. Given that Swan and Dolphin reservations are not linked to magic bands how will Disney know we're staying at an approved extra magic hour hotel? Thanks!

    Hi Angela,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for sending us this excellent question.

    Nothing could be easier! You will be able to associate your Walt Disney World Swan Hotel reservation and Annual Pass by linking them both through your My Disney Experience account. That's how "Disney will know" that you are staying at a hotel with Extra Magic Hours benefits.

    Once you link your Annual Pass to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to start making FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance of your visit. You may also link MagicBands, the Disney Memory Maker and any advanced dining reservations at table-service restaurants too. These will all be associated to make your vacation as seamless as possible.

    I hope this was helpful information, Angela. If you have any other vacation planning questions, please come back to visit us here.

    Wishing you a most unforgettable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
