    Hi! Can anyone offer tips for fast passes when staying offsite? We want to visit MK on day one so will book FPs 30 days ahead, but also don't want to miss out on FPs for Pandora and Toy Story Land where I know lots will be booked 60 days ahead. Thanks!

    Hi Lisa!  

    I think taking advantage of the FastPass+ service is one of the best ways to get the most out of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Since you are definitely spending a day at Magic Kingdom Park, it is a good idea to use your three FastPass+ selections for that day in that park.  You can only choose three FastPass+ experiences in advance in a single park per day.  However, once you have used those three FastPass+ selections, you can use the My Disney Experience mobile app or go to a FastPass+ Kiosk to make another selection in any park!

    Make sure to plan what FastPass+ selections you would like to make by looking at the full list of attractions and ranking your favorites.  By having a plan, when 7 a.m. Eastern Time on the day you can begin making your selections rolls around, you will be prepared!  

    If you don't get your top choices when making your FastPass+ selections, you still have some options!  Keep checking back.  When people get closer to their vacations, they often change their plans, and you may be able to grab one of the selections you were hoping to get.  Also, I highly recommend arriving at the parks before they open.  When you get there that early, you can beat a lot of the crowds, and you may be able to get on a more popular ride with little or no wait time!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
