    We will be arriving at WDW on 02/25/2017. We go to Magic Kingdom on Monday, how do i go about figuring out fast passes and times. We eat breakfast at Be Our Guest at 8:30 and lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table at 2:40. Thanks for your help

    Hi Yvonne!

    You are going to start your day in one of my favorite ways - breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant! While park hours are always subject to change, Magic Kingdom is scheduled to open at 9:00 a.m. on February 27, 2016. This means that your 8:30 a.m. reservation will allow you to enter the theme park prior park opening. Be sure to arrive early enough to take some fantastic pictures on Main Street, U.S.A. on your way to breakfast when street will be almost empty!

    Once you finish breakfast, you can enjoy as many of your favorites in Fantasyland as you can without a FastPass+ reservation. Since most Guests will be toward the front of the theme park, you will be able to enjoy many attractions near the back of the theme park with very short queues, such as Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Dumbo the Flying Elephant and The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh.

    I recommend you make your three advanced FastPass+ reservations around 11:00. The theme parks can really fill up right around lunch time and this will allow you to use your FastPass+ reservations when queues are longer. You should select exact schedule of your FastPass+ reservations based on the specific rides you will be enjoying and their location in the theme parks. Check out the Get Directions feature in the My Disney Experience Mobile App to help you determine travel time between attraction reservations. If you book your FastPass+ reservations so that you have finished them early in the day, then you will be able to make additional reservations one at a time for the end of your day!

    If you would like a more detailed FastPass+ plan, feel free to ask me another question with some information about the group you will be traveling with and your "must-do" list! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
