    I am currently setting up our fast pass and booking events, how much time should I allow in between events? Example, 9:30, meeting Cinderella (I see it says to arrive between 9:30-10:30), what would be a good time to schedule something after this?

    Hi, Angel!

    Maximizing time in the Walt Disney World parks is one of my favorite things, so I am so glad that you asked this great question!

    When you have a FastPass+ window of one hour for any experience, keep in mind that you are able to enter that experience at the start of that window. So, if you arrive to meet Cinderella at 9:30, you will likely be finished well within that hour. As such, book your next FastPass+ to begin at 10:30, trying to keep your three FP+ experiences close to each other, to enable easier access. 

    If you are in Magic Kingdom Park, arrange your second FP+ to be in an area that's close to the first that morning. This Magic Kingdom map will help you gauge the distance between attractions; we like to focus our travels in one particular area, then travel a little further later in the day.

    You might want to schedule a Walt Disney World Advanced Dining Reservation for lunch or an early dinner after your first three FastPass+ experiences, then take some time to reconnect, relax and recharge over a great meal, choosing your fourth FastPass+ as you do so. This is a great way to chat about the fun you've had and to plan more for the rest of your day!

    Have a magical visit, Angel! Be sure to send more questions as you think of them, too; we love to help!
