    I'm wondering about the timing of fast pass and meal reservations. The fast pass has an hour window. Is it realistic to have a meal reservation an hour after the start of a fast pass reservation?

    Hi Lisa,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    I am so glad to hear that you are taking advantage both of Disney FastPass+ service and making Disney dining reservations for your trip to Walt Disney World. Both of these will help you to reduce your wait times and ensure that you get to experience attractions and dining that you want to when you want to!

    I think that your plan to have a dining reservation near the end of your Disney FastPass+ window is fine. Essentially, let's say that you are planning a day at Magic Kingdom. You have a Disney FastPass+ selection for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad with an arrival from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. If you make a reservation around 1:30 p.m. for The Crystal Palace or Jungle Skipper Co. Ltd. Canteen, I think you will be able to make the dining reservation without a problem. I suggest that you arrive at your attraction at the beginning of your Disney FastPass+ window, so around 12:30 p.m. in this example. I also suggest that you book a restaurant that is of course in the same theme park and maybe not too far away from the attraction for which you have a Disney FastPass+ selection for this to work well.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Lisa! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
