    I was wondering, if when I book my vacation package online and put the deposit down, will I be able to go ahead and reserve character dining and fastpass. And will I get my magic bands or will I have to wait to do all of those things after balance is paid?

    Hey, Lena!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Dining with your favorite Disney characters and FastPass+ reservations are two of the most magical experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Advanced Dining Reservations may be made as early as 180 days before your arrival date with or without a vacation package.

    With your Magic Your Way Vacation Package deposit paid, FastPass+ reservations may be made 60 days in advance of your check-in date. This is a special benefit for Guests of Disney Parks hotels. FastPass+ reservations and dates may be selected once the tickets are linked to your Disney account through My Disney Experience.

    MagicBands are shipped to your home or Disney Parks hotel after your balance is paid. Shipment date will depend on when the MagicBand is customized so don't delay. 

    Disney Dad Tip: Several dining locations book up far in advance due to the wonderful meals and experience. Some of these highly desired locations are Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Cinderella’s Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park.

    Lena, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
