    How late can you be to a FastPass reservation? Can you arrive early for a FastPass reservation?

    Hello Heather! Thanks for coming to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is great to see that you are taking full advantage of using FastPass+ for your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! A good tip to remember is that Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel can book their FastPass+ reservations 60-days in advance of their arrival date. So, if you have chosen to stay at a Disney Resort Hotel with an arrival date of April 8, 2020, you should be able to start making your FastPass+ reservations on February 8, 2020 at 7:00AM EST.

    The "unofficial" rule of early or late arrival for FastPass+ reservations is "five and fifteen." An arrival five minutes prior to your assigned time will most likely get you onto the ride. An arrival fifteen minutes late for your assigned time will most likely get you onto the ride. However, I recommend only using that cushion if needed. Train yourself to get to that reservation within the assigned time! You are going to work hard to get those all important FastPass+ reservations for your favorite attractions! Don't miss your assigned time!

    Heather, I hope this answer has been helpful as you continue planning for your visit in April! Come back to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can be of further assistance!
