    Planning my trip in Nov - half of our party staying on -property and half off-property. If I have everyone linked up in My Disney Experience and everyone has tickets / annual passes when would Fastpass window open up - everyone at 60 days? or split up?

    Hi, Jessica!

    What a fun trip you have in store!

    I am so glad that you are planning ahead and looking to see when your FastPass+ window will open. Arranging many types of tickets and various people's plans can be complicated, but you'll manage just fine with the help of My Disney Experience.

    For those of you who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, your window opens up 60 days prior to check-in for the length of your stay. For those staying off property, that window opens up at 30 days prior to check-in. When we're in a similar situation, I arrange FP+ at the 60-day point for those with access. Then, on the 30-day mark, I match FP+ for those individuals as closely as possible to the original batch. Keep in mind that your one hour window does not have to match each other perfectly. You only need a little overlapping time to enable everyone in the party to ride an attraction at the same time.

    If at first your 30-day FP+ times don't match up to your liking, but you've secured your top attraction picks, go back to the 60-day batch and see if you can adjust those to match the later group. Chances are good that you'll be able to get most, if not all, of your FP+ times to coordinate. On a recent trip, I managed to coordinate 17 adults' FP+ times for almost all of our three day park hopping plans, simply by checking back into FP+ to see what had become available.

    Happy planning, Jessica!
