    Many restaurants during our Oct trip are already booked. I'm nervous about get fast passes. Is Oct really busy? Am I going to be able to get FP+ for Elsa&Anna? We're staying on property.

    Hello Katherine.  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    I love visiting Walt Disney World in October, in fact, I will be there two different times that month.  October tends to be slightly busy, not as busy as the summer, but it's not the slowest time of year either.  Dining reservations can be made 180 days in advance and the most popular places do tend to fill up quickly. Don't give up hope though because between now and your vacation, a lot of dining times will become available. You will just have to be persistent in checking the website.  I've been known to check everyday until something I want opens up and I usually have good success.  Because you are staying on property, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance at midnight EST.  You'll want to set an alarm and be ready at the stroke of 12 if you are hoping to grab one for Elsa & Anna because that meet and greet is still so popular.  As long as your up, you shouldn't have any trouble getting the selections you are hoping for.  

    I hope this helps!  If you have any other questions, please come back and ask.  

    Happy planning!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
