    I am scheduling my fast passes how much time in between rides to I need to allow before I schedule the next one?

    Hi, Gina! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for asking me this great question. When completing your FastPass+ selections, the system will give you a one-hour "window" of use for each one. For example, if you select Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at 11:00 a.m., you will have a blocked out period of 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. to use that FastPass+, and you will not be able to schedule another FastPass+ within that one-hour timeframe. You will be able to make another selection no later than one hour before and no earlier than one hour after that 11:00 spot. If you like, you can stack your FastPass+ one right after the other (for example, 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 12:00 p.m.), or you could space them throughout the day. Many guests like to stack them early in the day so they can begin looking for more FastPass+ availability as soon as possible. I do that during some trips, but sometimes I have a different method that keeps us from backtracking and crisscrossing the park all day.

    To keep us from going back and forth across a theme park, I first think about how I would like my day to flow. Take for instance our days in Magic Kingdom Park; I like to start my mornings in Fantasyland. We then spend the rest of the morning and afternoon in Adventureland and Frontierland. I like to save Tomorrowland for the evening because it is such a gorgeous land at night, literally glowing the night away! Knowing all of this, I sometimes schedule our FastPass+ to coincide with the time of day I plan to be in that area.

    Gina, you can give yourself as much time as you need between FastPass+ selections, but just keep in mind that they will definitely need to be an hour apart and you will want to consider the general time period you plan to be in the area of the attraction.

    I hope this helps you plan your FastPass+ choices. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi, I'm Brandy, a speech pathologist and busy driver of daughters to marching band and dance events. My Annual Pass is used often to check out new Disney must-dos and resort changes. I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
