    Am I able to make a FastPass+ selection for an attraction at 9:00 am if the park opens at 9:00 am?

    Hi Conlan,

    The FastPass+ service is such a wonderful time saver, so I'm glad to hear that you're planning ahead to be able to maximize its use! I also love making my FastPass+ plans, because then I can really see my trip itinerary come together, and it's so fun to anticipate all of the fun that we'll have on our Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Yes, I have definitely seen some FastPass+ availability beginning as soon as the theme parks open for the day, but when you go to make your selections, times will all depend on what is currently available. Feel free to use the "Filter by Time" option and choose "Select a Time" to find attractions and experiences with availability near the time you're wanting. For the most availability, I'd encourage you to log on just before 7:00 a.m. Eastern time 60 days ahead of time if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel and 30 days beforehand if you're staying elsewhere. That way, as soon as your planning window opens, you'll be all set to find the perfect FastPass+ selections for your trip!

    I will say, though, that my family doesn't typically grab the very first FastPass+ times in the morning. While scheduling your FastPass+ selections early in the day allows you to make your 4th, 5th, and any subsequent selections sooner, we have found that the crowds are light enough in the morning that there's no need for FastPass+ selections yet. We're usually able to enjoy a few attractions with very little waiting first thing in the morning, then we schedule our FastPass+ selections to begin mid-morning.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Conlan, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
