    Is there a penalty if you book a fast pass and do not use it?  My in laws don't think they will do some of the rides but I have fast passes for them just in case. Will that affect other fast passes?

    Hi Meaghan!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so happy to help you plan your family's trip to Walt Disney World Resort! With the FastPass+ system, Guests can make up to 3 FastPass+ reservations in advance of your trip, but if you or your in-laws happen to miss a reservation there is no penalty. You can simply head to your next reservation or to the next thing planned in your trip itinerary. If your in-laws choose to not use their FastPass+ reservations, that will not impact the reservations for that attraction for the rest of your family and they will still be able to use their other reservations scheduled for that day. As the mom to two little Mouseketeers, we occasionally miss FastPass+ reservations due to unforeseen circumstances, the most common being an surprise nap in their strollers. We just pick up with our scheduled FastPass+ reservations when we can, with no problem at all!

    I recommend that you use the My Disney Experience Mobile App during your trip because it is a great way to make new FastPass+ reservations and dining reservations on the go while you are in the theme parks. This would be the perfect way to update FastPass+ reservations for your family if they decide they want to sit out an attraction or enjoy something else!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
