    Hi! We have booked more ADRs than we plan to use on our trip in Aug - we will firm up plans closer to the time. When we book FP+, does the system work around existing ADRs? Should we cancel extra ADRs before before booking FP+ for greater flexibility?

    Greetings, Elisabeth, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel from a fellow Ontarian and Disney enthusiast.

    Advanced Dining Reservations are the wise thing to do to ensure you eat at your favorite Disney Resort restaurants. One thing to keep in mind, however, especially when reserving more restaurants than you need is to make sure that you cancel those you don't need because your credit card was used as a place holder for your reservation. Your credit card will not be charged before you dine unless you either don't show up for your reservation or cancel after 11:59 PM Eastern Time on the day before your arrival.

    Your FastPass+ selection process does not work itself around your existing Advanced Dining Reservations. Instead, you have to align your choices with your specific dining preferences. Please keep in mind that the selection window for FastPass+ for Disney Resort hotel Guests begins at 60-days before check-in, whereas, the selection window for FastPass+ for non-Disney Resort hotel Guests begins at 30-days prior to arrival.

    My suggestion would be to begin firming up exactly which dining reservations you intend to keep to allow yourself greater flexibility for planning your FastPass+ experiences. As well, may I suggest My Disney Experience mobile app for full control and customization of your vacation plans. You'll even be able to modify or cancel Advanced Dining Reservations and FastPass+ selections through the mobile app during your Walt Disney World Resort visit using complimentary Guest WiFi service.

    Elisabeth, we hope this is helpful and look forward to assisting you in the near future.

    Best Disney Wishes~
