After almost an entire year, Disney Cast Members will finally be able to make advance FastPass+ selections from the convenience of their homes, just like most of the Guests visiting the parks every day. George A. Kalogridis, president of the Walt Disney World Resort, officially announced the news internally through a short video with details on how Cast Members may soon enjoy the features of MyMagic+ when visiting the parks as Guests.
Beginning October 20, 2014, will be able to link their Main Entrance Pass and all of their Guest Passes to their MyMagic+ profile. Upon completing this process, they'll be able to make FastPass+ selections for them and their Guests (optional) up to seven days in advance.
In addition to that, all Central Florida Cast Members will be eligible to receive one complimentary MagicBand. To receive it, they will need to customize it and order their own MagicBand on MyDisneyExperience.com by December 31, 2014. The MagicBand will then be sent to their homes in a special commemorative box. Cast Members will be able to use it interchangeably with their Main Entrance Pass for theme park admission and FastPass+ redemption.
