4. Dining Reservations are a Must
In addition to FastPass reservations, you’ll also want to make dining reservations in advance. You can snag these up to 180 days in advance of your trip, and for the most popular eateries, you’ll want to call as soon as that 180-day-out mark hits.
5. You’ll Want a MagicBand
People who stay in a Disney Resort Hotel receive MagicBands at no additional charge. However, people staying offsite can still purchase MagicBands of their own, and they’re well worth the investment.
These awesome wristbands contain information such as your park tickets, FastPasses, and dining reservations. They can be scanned to access these things, making them easy to use and harder to misplace.
6. ...and the My Disney Experience App
The My Disney Experience app can be downloaded on your phone to make FastPass and dining reservations on the go. It can also be used to check wait times, find showtimes, and view maps of the parks. You’ll definitely want to download this before you leave home.
