    We are heading back to disney in May and are very excited. However, I am concerned about fast pass plus. We 'had great success with traditional fast pass and am worried about the limitations of fast pass plus. Mainly the 3 per day limit. Any feedback?

    Hi Amy,

    I am glad you are heading to Magic Kingdom in May! It is a fun time of the year to be on vacation!

    My family used the FastPass+ in December for our vacation. We were not total fans of it but we managed with the large crowds. It was nice not running to Toy Story Midway Mania to grab a FastPass because it was already booked.

    I recommend you arrive at the parks early and standby the popular rides early in the day and use the FastPass+ later in the day for a second turn. I would only book attractions and not shows or parades. Attractions have a smaller number of guests it can accommodate where as a show or parade has a larger capacity for seating guests at one time. The one non-attraction I might opt for is a character greeting especially if the character can not be found during a dining experience or it is a must see for someone you are touring with.

    When you make your selections, you will get a combination of three FastPass+ to choose from on the trip. Pick the combination that works best and then adjust as you go along. Also, you can adjust times and FastPass+ throughout your trip on a smartphone or tablet as well as kiosks throughout the park.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
