    We arrive at MCO at 8:30 am. Taking Magical Express to All Star Music to check in and drop off luggage. Going straight to Epcot after that. At what time should I make our first FastPass+ reservation? Thanks!

    Hey, Lori!

    Thanks so much for visiting with the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    We're so excited to help you plan your Spring Disney vacation!

    The time of year that you will be visiting is sometimes busy because of Spring Break. So be sure to always give yourself enough travel time when getting from your resort to the parks or from park to park. 

    Since you would like to visit the parks just after arriving from the airport, be sure to give yourself at least 2 hours from your expected flight arrival time. This allows you plenty of cushion in case your flight is delayed or the lines to board Disney's Magical Express and the bus at your resort are long.

    I would suggest to begin your FastPass+ selection at Epcot to begin around 10:30 am or 11:00 am. All FastPass+ attractions give you an hour window of when you can use the FastPass+. By allowing about 2 hours of travel time from the airport to the theme park with a stop at the resort in between, keeps you from having to rush or potentially missing your FastPass+ times. 

    I hope this helps you have a better idea about when to start planning those FastPass+ attractions! If you have more questions, please feel free to visit with us again! 

    Happy planning!
