Get Away Today's Walt Disney World Concierge Services - How to Use It

You’re always welcome to contact us about your vacation, both before and during, and we’ll be there to do whatever we can for you.
Get Away Today's Walt Disney World concierge services include assistance booking your vacation, and extend to booking additional experiences while at Walt Disney World. After you book your vacation package, you will be contacted by a Walt Disney World expert regarding whether or not you’d like to use our complimentary concierge services. If so, you make an appointment to go over your plans. If you'd like to be more hands-on with your daily itinerary planning, you can decline to use our Walt Disney World concierge services. Remember, the services are only available when you book a Walt Disney World vacation package, which includes theme park tickets and Resort hotel stay (excluding Swan and Dolphin hotels) with an agent directly. The complimentary concierge service is not available when booking online.
Get Away Today's Walt Disney World Concierge Services - What It Includes
Did you know Walt Disney World Resort is made up of four different theme parks, two water parks, AND a shopping, dining and entertainment district? With so much ground to cover, it’s easy to see why having someone else plan your itinerary can be helpful. From setting up your My Disney Experience account to booking dining reservations, our Walt Disney World concierge services can handle it for you! An agent can also book other add-on experiences such as Character Encounters, and can make FastPass+ reservations on your behalf when they are available. Please note that Walt Disney World is not currently using the FastPass+ System for the remainder of 2020, and has not announced whether or not it will be used in 2021.

Get Away Today's Walt Disney World Concierge Services - What is My Disney Experience?
When you visit Walt Disney World Resort, you need a free My Disney Experience account. This is your online hub for keeping track of all the different elements of your vacation. If you’re familiar with the official Disneyland app, it’s similar to that.
If you are booking a Walt Disney World Resort vacation for either 2020 or 2021, you will need to have theme park reservations in addition to theme park tickets for admission. Part of our initial booking process includes checking park availability before booking. Then, we'll help walk you through making that reservation.
If you choose to take advantage of Get Away Today's Walt Disney World concierge services, an agent can create and help manage your My Disney Experience account for you. She/he will add all travel members to the account and link theme park tickets so your vacation is organized from the get-go! In your My Disney Experience account, you’ll have access to see FastPass+ requests when available, dining reservations and more.
The add-on experiences in your My Disney Experience account sync up with Disney Magic Bands. Magic Bands are the wearable devices that give you electronic access to Walt Disney World. These can serve as electronic theme park admission, can be used to access FastPass+ lines (for which you’ve made FastPass+ requests in advance) and can even be used to enter your Walt Disney World Resort hotel and make purchases. Disney Magic Bands are not required, and can be added onto your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
Get Away Today's Walt Disney World Concierge Services - What is FastPass+?
So, you’ve probably noticed numerous mention of FastPass+. If you’re familiar with Disneyland’s version of FastPass, you need to forget everything you know about that because Walt Disney World Resort runs things just a bit differently.
Not to worry, though, because with our free concierge services, an agent can actually make your FastPass+ requests for you when they are available. Please remember, that FastPass+ is not currently available at Walt Disney World. However, as an overview, here’s what FastPass+ is all about when it is available to park guests:
FastPass+ at Walt Disney World Resort is an optional service that allows guests to experience select rides and attractions via a shorter wait line. Through the My Disney Experience account, you can make FastPass+ requests up to 60 days prior to your vacation. You can make up to three FastPass+ selections per day in one of the four Walt Disney World Kingdoms. When you receive a FastPass+ reservation for a ride or show, you are given a ride return time. When that one-hour window of time approaches, you’ll head to the ride, tap your Magic Band for verification and then enter the shorter, FastPass+ line. It’s a great way to fit in more magic than you might otherwise without FastPass+.
During your planning appointment with a Walt Disney World expert, she/he will discuss the FastPass+ attractions and their height requirements so you can make the best selections for your family. When you have chosen the first three daily FastPass+ selections for each day of your vacation, an agent will make those requests for your entire length of stay (three initial FastPass+ selections per ticket, per day). An agent will also make sure you've provided a list of alternates should your priority FastPass+ requests be unavailable.
When your three FastPass+ requests have been redeemed each day, you can then make additional FastPass+ requests through the Walt Disney World app based on availability. If for any reason a FastPass+ request can’t be honored due to unforeseen circumstances, such as a temporary ride closure, it will be canceled and you’ll be free to make a new request.
