    My family and I have already chosen fast passes and have VIP seating for fantasmic with lunch at Tony's for Oct. My adult sister is now going LAST MINUTE. What are our options? We have 1 infant in our party.

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Maria!

    I am a planner when we visit Walt Disney World, and the situation you are describing happens to us frequently; I TOTALLY GET it!

    When a family member realizes that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation sounds amazing and wants to join you well after you've finalized your plans, get creative. First? FastPass+: have your sister set up a My Disney Experience account, link her park ticket, and obtain her FastPass+ options as close to yours as she can get them. Guests adjust the times of their FP+ frequently, so although the perfect time may not be available today, it may be tomorrow. Separate FP+ times only need to overlap a bit. So, if your FP+ for Splash Mountain is from 12:05-1:05, and your sister can get 1:00-2:00, great! You can enter at 1:00. If one of your FP+ options is just not available, ask a Cast Member at the attraction if there is a single rider option there. This will enable your sister to enjoy the attraction around the same time as the rest of your family.

    Regarding dining with VIP entertainment seating such as Fantasmic! Dining Package, call Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or go to Disney Dining Reservations and check back from time to time to see if there is a reservation available that will include your additional guest. If not, when you get to the park, head to the restaurant and ask the Cast Member at the restaurant's check-in area if it's possible to add a guest to your reservation.

    Send more questions as you add plans, Maria! We love to help!
