    What is the best way to use FastPass during Easter weekend? Use them all in the morning, or spread them out to include popular rides in the afternoon? If we use the FastPass by 1:00, will there even be availability for additional rides in the afternoon?

    Hi Janet! Many say that Easter is the second most crowded holiday in the parks. So what am I doing with you this year? We will all be at Walt Disney World that weekend!

    Yes, because of my grandson's spring break dates it worked out that we will be there the week before and through the Easter weekend. When it comes to reserving your Fastpasses for the parks I feel that whatever you can get at the times you can get them is what you go with. For instance the only time we could get Test Track and Toy Story Mania on the days we will be in those two parks was late in the afternoon. So we scheduled the other Fastpasses around that time as well as dining. In the morning we will enjoy the resort pools or head to Disney Springs for some fun. Then we will head to a park and stay later then usual. For the Magic Kingdom we are reversing that and going early and leaving early. 

    It will be hard to tell if Fastpasses will be available much after your first three uses in any of the parks. I can guarantee that the most popular attractions will not be free for you to choose but perhaps some of the lesser attractions will still have times. My best advice is to plan for your top three and then just enjoy what you can beyond that. Don't use a FastPass for a parade or fireworks as you can always manage a spot for those at some point.

    Our family will have our bunny ears on that weekend and we will be enjoying the magic that only Disney can offer for this wonderful holiday!
