Kids being silly on Main Street

    1st time vacationing with another family in Disney. We arrive a day earlier then they do. Will I be able to schedule fastpass for both parties if we're linked on My Disney Experience on the day my family can do it or will I have to wait until next day?

    Hi Melina,

    How fun that you'll get to share the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with some family friends! You'll make memories together that you'll cherish forever!

    I was really surprised the first time that I heard from a Cast Member that yes, Disney Resort hotel Guests actually are able to make FastPass+ selections that include Guests who aren't staying on-site at that 60-day point! I tried it myself, though, and it really did work! The key is to make sure that it's a member of your family who is making the plans because the other family's FastPass+ planning window won't open until a day later. You'll also need to make sure that the FastPass+ selections include everyone. You won't be able to make one set of selections for you and your family and a different set for your friends. The system will only allow you to include other Guests before their planning window has opened if you're included in the selections. When you go to make your choices, you'll simply click each Guest from your Family & Friends list that you'd like to include in your FastPass+ party, and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo, you should be able to make FastPass+ selections for your entire party! Have fun making those FastPass+ selections and really watching your trip itinerary come together!

    One other tip: Did you know that if you've allowed photo sharing privileges within Family & Friends, you'll be able to download ALL of your photos when just one of you purchases Memory Maker? Awesome, huh?!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again, Melina, and please let us know if we can help you with anything else. I hope that you and your friends have a truly magical vacation together!
