    I am staying at Pop Century arriving Nov 11/2015. I just want to confirm that I have this correct: for the 180 day advance dining reservations, I go online at 6am EST. For the FastPasses, I go online at MIDNIGHT 60 days before to book them. Thank you!!

    Hey Joanne-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. To call or go online ... that is the question. I am ready 180 days before my first desired dining experience or check-in date. I wake up early and am logged in to My Disney Experience at 5:50 a.m. When Mickey time (Easter Standard Time) hits 6:00 a.m. it’s go time! Phone lines open at 7:00 a.m. Mickey time if you are unsuccessful for any reason making an online advance dining reservation. I would start calling about 5 minutes before the dining reservation line (407 WDW-DINE or 407-939-3463) opens. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort then you may make all of your advance dining reservations for your trip, up to 10 days, at the 180 day mark. Off-property guests may make advance dining reservations at the 180 day mark but only one day at a time.  I checked for you and your date should be 6:00 a.m. May 15, 2015.

    FastPass+ reservations follow this rule of thumb: You may begin making FastPass+ reservations once the last park closes 60 days in advance for guests staying on property (30 days for guest staying elsewhere and only one day at a time). My co-panelist Amy B. has some additional insight that should help. As a tip, have your FastPass+ experiences written down for each day beforehand so you may quickly select your ideal times. Your date should be MIDNIGHT September 12, 2015 when you may make your three FastPass+ selection for every day you have theme park admission.

    By the way, my family loves Disney’s Pop Century Resort. We spend all day exploring the giant Rubix cubes, Big Wheel and Yo-Yos as well as swimming in the Hippy Dippy Pool. It has been our home three times. Have a great time and please say "hi" to Mickey from me.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
