    Hi! Now that Disney has moved to date specific tickets when are you able to reserve FastPasses? For example, we arrive on a Thursday to our WDW resort but our tickets begin the next day. Thanks!

    Hi, Christina! Thanks for bringing another great question to us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    While several things have changed with Walt Disney World Resort’s new date-based tickets, one thing that has remained the same is the 60-day FastPass+ booking window for guests staying at an official Walt Disney World Resort hotel. This means you’ll be able to book those coveted FastPass+ experiences beginning at 7 a.m. EST up to 60 days prior to your arrival. Furthermore, as a Walt Disney World Resort hotel guest, you’ll also be able to book your FastPasses for up to 10 days following your check-in date! 

    When you’re ready to choose those experiences, visit the Walt Disney World resort website or use your My Disney Experience app to make up to three selections for each day of your ticket at a single park. (Bonus tip: once you’ve redeemed all three FastPass+ selections for the day, use your My Disney Experience app to book more (one at a time, based on availability)!)

    I would recommend first trying to book those hard-to-get experiences such as Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Slinky Dog Dash at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Frozen Ever After at Epcot, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park.

    Here’s wishing you the best of luck in getting everything on your FastPass+ wish list!
