    We have a package booked for March, 2018. When do we get our FAST PASS message allowing us to make our FAST PASS bookings. We have our dining reservations, but it seems like our FAST PASS info should be here.

    Hi Sheila,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that 2018 has arrived and you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    As long as you have a package booked with a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and valid theme park tickets, you can make your Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance of your trip. Although I have received email messages in the past, by the time I received those messages, I have made our Fast Pass+ selections. My suggestion is to check your My Disney Experience Account to see how many days you have remaining until your trip. To do so, login to My Disney Experience, click on the My Disney Experience icon and you should land on a screen that shows you the number of days until your visit. Once that number hits 60, I am up by 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time trying to make Fast Pass+ selections.

    Since Fast Pass+ selection day is such a big day in our household, we have already pre-planned the attractions we want to experience and the times we want to do them before I actually go in to make the selections. When I login to My Disney Experience to make our Fast Pass+ selections, I move pretty efficiently. We now prefer to do our Fast Pass+ selections back to back in the morning so that we can have lunch around noon. While in the parks, as soon as we have finished our third Fast Pass+, I use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to book another Fast Pass+ attraction to do after lunch or later that evening. 

    Sheila, I also make note of our Fast Pass+ selection day on my personal calendar so that I get a reminder. With popular attractions like Avatar Flight of Passage and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Fast Pass+ availability can be limited, so be sure to make those selections as soon as you can. And, remember to plan around your dining reservations!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
