    Could you give me a refresher course on FastPass? Our 60 days is very soon and I need to be more organized. Kids are DD14 & 12 and DS10. THANK YOU!!!

    Hi Diane,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Yes, it most certainly is time for you to make those Fast Pass+ selections!

    First, be sure to have your resort hotel linked in My Disney Experience. Then be sure that everyone in your party is listed in your My Family & Friends List. Link everyone's theme park tickets and MagicBands to your My Disney Experience Account. Then, once you start making those Fast Pass+ selections, it should be easy!

    Before I make our selections, I have mapped out our dining reservations so I know which park(s) we plan to visit each day. If you are not doing the Park Hopper option, then you will need to be sure that your in-park dining reservations are for the same park you plan to visit each day. I always create a chart with our dining reservations so that I know what times we can do Fast Pass+ selections. Once you login to My Disney Experience, you should be able to select each person in your party for each Fast Pass+. Remember that you get three initial Fast Pass+ selections for each day that you have valid theme park tickets. Once you have used those selections or the time window has expired, you can make a fourth, "rolling" Fast Pass+ selection in the same park or, if you have Park Hopper, for another park.  

    Diane, my final tip is to make sure you consider geography when making those Fast Pass+ selections. We avoid trekking back and forth across the parks. Instead, we typically keep our Fast Pass+ selections in the same vicinity and back-to-back in time if possible.

    Let the happy dancing begin! 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,

    I do hope this response gets to you in time!
