    Hello! We are traveling with family in a large group in August of 2020. They are DVC members and are booking our rooms for all of us. Do we get to book our own fast passes or do they have to book them since they are the members?

    Hi Jennifer,

    The only thing better than a visit to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" is sharing the joy with loved ones! You and your entire family and going to have an incredible time next summer and will surely make memories that you'll all cherish forever!

    I'm happy to let you know that yes, as long as you have valid theme park tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account, you'll be able to make your own FastPass+ selections. What I would recommend doing is connecting with all of your extended family members via the Family & Friends list. That way, you'll be able to make FastPass+ plans or dining reservations together if you'd like, and can simply select the Guests you'd like to include in your party each time you make plans. Now, with that all said, each individual Guest will only be allowed to plan three FastPass+ experiences per day at one theme park in advance, so if your family members add you to their FastPass+ plans, that will limit how many selections you'll be able to make on your own. The beauty of the system, though, is that you can change the members of your FastPass+ party for each selection, allowing every Guest to enjoy their perfect Disney day! 

    Also, since Disney Resort hotel Guests have the added benefit of being able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance rather than 30, you'll want to make sure that your family members add you as a registered Guest on the reservation not just by name, but through your My Disney Experience account so that it shows up in your "My Plans" section. If at any point you have any trouble making any of your plans, please feel free to call a friendly Cast Member for assistance!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer, and please feel free to come back and see us again if you have any other questions as you're planning your visit.
