    Good Morning, My family is traveling to Disney during spring break in April. The parks are predicted to be at maximum capacity, if we are planning to park hop, what is the probability that we will be able to get fast passes for the late afternoon?

    Hi Teresa! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited for you to visit with your family this spring! Spring is an amazing time to vacation. The weather isn't as hot as it is in the summer, but warm enough to feel like vacation, and events like the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival make it extra fun.

    My husband and I returned last week from a trip over the holiday weekend. It was much more crowded than other recent trips we had taken, but we were still able to get everything done that we planned to do! On the actual holiday of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we headed to Disney's Animal Kingdom at opening, completed all of the rides by using our initial three FastPass+ and the early morning strategy, then park hopped over to Epcot for the afternoon. We were still able to get FastPass+ for Soarin' Around the World and Spaceship Earth before heading over to World Showcase. It was amazing!

    All of that to say, I have high hopes that you will be able to get FastPass+ in the afternoon after park hopping! Availability of times will probably be limited and not all attractions will have availability, but that is also the case during the least crowded days. I suggest arriving each day at the theme parks before park opening so you get in early in the day when it is the least crowded. Once you have checked in for your third FastPass+, use the My Disney Experience mobile app right away to select your next FastPass+, whether it is for the theme park you are currently in or for the one you are hopping to. This will save you a lot of time and give you a better chance of snagging that fourth FastPass+!

    I hope these tips help, Teresa! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
