One of the greatest things about setting up all of your plans before heading to the Disney Parks is My Disney Experience. This free planning tool is care of the folks over at the Walt Disney World Resort and part of the a key component of MyMagic+ and FastPass+ fun.
We’re big fans of this planning tool — not only is it handy, but it also adds to the excitement of your trip when you plan all of the fun things you can do, as well as your Advance Dining Reservations (speaking of which, have you done that yet?)
There are two ways you can access My Disney Experience. One is to visit the website, and the other is to head over to the app store and download the mobile app. Once you’re there, you can create your own account and customize your visit this November!
After you’re logged in and ready to go, you can link your resort hotel reservation if you’re staying on site, as well as your Magic Your Way park tickets, right onto your account. If you’ve yet to book these, no problem — they can be added later on.
Next, you’ll add the others in your travel party via the Family & Friends list first. You’ll all have access to the account and share all of your plans, which is perfect for larger groups planning their trip together. If you’re planning on linking yourFastPass+es, then now is the time to do that, too. You’ll be ready to make and share plans together—including FastPass+ selections.
One of the handiest part of the app and website that that you can view day-by-day plans and include reminders (such as “Food Allergy & Celiac Convention today!” and “Don’t forget about the Sunday events at Downtown Disney!”)
If you have access to a smartphone while on your trip, the app features include:
- Exploring the resort on a GPS-enabled map that is interactive and quick response
- Easy access to wait times for attractions
- Showtimes for parades and fireworks
- Details on character greeting location and times
- Restaurant menus
- The ability to make dining reservations
- Access to all of your reservations and reminders
- Management tools, such as tickets, MagicBands, cards, and reservations
- FastPass+ experiences and details
