    Is there an efficient way to plan fast passes? Like using location of rides or just base it on times

    Hi Priya!

    Taking advantage of the FastPass+ service is one of the best ways to make the most of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort!  When I plan my FastPass+ selections, I like to try to factor in both time and location.  For example, I don't want to have back-to-back FastPass+ selections completely across the park from one another, especially since rushing through the day can make you to miss so much of the magic!

    Even if your favorite experiences aren't close to each other, you can still make those selections!  Just make sure that you leave time in between attractions to get from location to location.  Having extra time is always better than being rushed because you will find plenty to do in between scheduled attractions!  You can enjoy other attractions, meet favorite characters, eat scrumptious food, or simply soak in all of the magic!  I like to schedule my days in a leisurely "circle" as much as I can, so I always check out the full list of attractions and estimate the amount of time it will take to enjoy all of the experiences in between my desired FastPass+ selections before choosing my FastPass+ times.

    Remember, if you don't get your desired selection on your first try, keep checking back!  Many Guests change their plans at the last minute, so you may be able to pick up a selection someone else dropped!  Also remember that you can adjust FastPass+ selections in the parks (depending on availability) if you find that you have too much or too little time.  Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app so that you can make adjustments on the go!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
