    We can begin fast pass selections 4/19/18 for our 6/18 trip woohoo; how early is the fast pass selection window available on that day and what are tips for planning for my family who has 3 Disney experienced and two newbies their first time?? I love Disney

    Hi Donna! I love that you love Disney! I love Disney too! FastPass+ selection day is always so fun! I love how you are thinking about every detail. I know this will be a magical vacation for everyone in your traveling party!

    You may begin making FastPass+ selections at 7:00 AM Eastern Time.

    As you are making your plans, I would suggest you make your FastPass+ selections based on your must-do fun and build from there. Your 2 first-time Guests will have a great time experiencing what you love. If they have expressed interest in anything different from what you typically do, I would definitely try to weave their wishes into your plan and you will all be able to experience something new together.

    You are going to love visiting Walt Disney World Resort with 2 first time Guests and it may be one of your most magical visits. As you are planning your FastPass+ selections, I would definitely recommend building in a little extra time to navigate from attraction to attraction. Your first time Guests will be filled with awe as you move throughout the theme parks. Let them take in everything and I know you will see things you have never noticed as you experience Walt Disney World Resort through their eyes!

    I think the most important thing to do is to plan your vacation based on your top priorities. Schedule as much as you can based on the attractions or dining on your must-do list. Once that is done, let the magic begin and know that it's the spontaneous moments that may make for the most magical memories.

    I couldn't be more excited for you. I love how you are sharing Walt Disney World Resort with 2 new Guests. Enjoy every magical moment as you create memories that will last a lifetime!
