Family planning a trip

    We have a reservation the third week of October, currently I can only see 30 days worth of Fast Pass options, when our hotel reservation is within that 60day mark will our fast pass option automatically populate?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Fast Pass+ selection day is a very special day in our household. Prior to that day, the girls, my husband and I have prioritized our selections and decided what time of day we plan to be in each park.

    As long as you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, your Fast Pass+ selection window will open at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard time 60 days prior to your arrival. At that time, you will see all available Fast Pass+ options. I suggest that you try to make your Fast Pass+ selections for the most popular rides first. Although I was able to make Fast Pass+ selections for Avatar Flight of Passage for our last trip in July, we were unable to make them for a trip coming up this October. There simply were no selections available for our two-day visit.

    If you have not noticed already, in My Disney Experience, you can check the number of days remaining until your magic begins by clicking on the My Disney Experience icon located near the top right-hand section of the page.  We love using this as a countdown clock for our trips. It also helps me to be sure I have correctly calculated the exact date I can make our Fast Pass+ selections.  

    Jennifer, also consider the location of each attraction - we try book our Fast Pass+ selections back to back and in the same area of the park. If we cannot get them in the same area, I make them so we do them in geographic order. We may start with an attraction near the front of the park and will pick a second attraction that is on the way to the third attraction.  Finally, be sure that each member of your party has theme park tickets linked in your My Disney Experience account if you are making Fast Pass+ selections for a group!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
    Donyell
