    Hi Question about FastPass/Dining Reservations.We are staying at AOA for 21 nights/22 days. Our first park day will be day 2 (day after checkin). Will our ADR’s open 180 days before checkin and our FastPass window 60 days before checkin or first park day?

    Hi, Jonathan!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hEAR that you are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  You are going to love staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  The spacious family suites at this resort hotel provide you with all of the comforts of home, while the delightful theming of the resort surrounds you with the magic of some of your favorite Disney and Pixar stories.  Now with the recent addition of the Disney Skyliner gondola system, transportation to and from Disney's Art of Animation Resort is even more convenient!

    There are so many benefits to staying right in the middle of the magic at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  For instance, Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests can make their FastPass+ selections 60 days before their resort hotel check-in date.  This is the case even if you do not plan to visit one of the theme parks until the second day of your trip. 

    You will also be able to begin making your dining reservations 180 days prior to your arrival.  At that 180 day mark, Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests may make dining reservations for their entire trip, up to 10 days.  Since you will be staying longer than 10 days, you will be able to reserve dining for the first 10 days of your trip 180 days before your check-in date.  Beyond those first 10 days, you will need to make your reservations one day at a time, 180 days before each reservation date.

    If we can answer any additional questions for you as you plan your holiday, please visit us again.  Wishing you a Walt Disney World Resort vacation that is practically perfect in every way!
