    4th trip to WDW very excited & nervous cause new advances in technology: trip is in 65 days- can you give me any/new info on: the magic bands, MyDisneyExp app & Fastpass+ info. Would like to get Fastpass on lunch at BeOurGuest too. Thank you ;)

    Hi Diane,

    Your trip is so close and it is so exciting with the new technology in place to help you enjoy and customize your trip!

    My Disney Experience is the key to it all. Here is where you will create an account for each person traveling with you. You will then invite them to your trip. This allows you to book their FastPass+ selections and they have access to dining and other trip information. On your smartphone or tablet, you can make any changes necessary as well as have access to valuable information.

    You Magic Bands can be customized by color and names can be printed on the inside in case more people want the same color. The Magic Band can hold all sorts of information including your Key to the World room key, charging privileges, FastPass+ selections, Advance Dining Reservations, PhotoPass+ and most importantly your tickets. This allows you to leave everything else at home and swipe magically through your day!

    FastPass+ allows to book up to three FastPass+ selection per person each day in one park. After the third FastPass+ is used, you can then book another FastPass+ at the same park or a different park at any of the kiosks in the park. After this FastPass+ is used, you can keep getting additional FastPass+ until there are no more. The trick is to book your FastPass+ early in the day so you can grab additional ones later in the day.

    I would look at the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest information on the new things at the Walt Disney World Resorts.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
