    Is it better to do advance fast pass res. in the afternoons since morning lines are shorter? I'm afraid of doing this then getting to the park and having no morning res. With a 2, 5 & 8 yr old.

    Hi, Issaku! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We're glad you brought us your question! 

    One of my favorite parts of planning my Walt Disney World Resort vacations is being able to book FastPass+ reservations in advance. It's truly the best way to see more of all the wonderful attractions at each park. 

    Did you know that once you have used your third FP+, you can book additional FP+ throughout the day? Because of this wonderful feature, I prefer to book my FastPass+ reservations earlier in the day. That way, once I have used up that third FP+, I can log into My Disney Experience on my smart device and right there, on the go, I can get additional FP+ for more great attractions and experiences! You can also do this at the parks. There are FP+ kiosk locations at all four theme parks equipped with helpful Cast Members who can help you add, change or update your FastPass+ reservations.

    One last tip: Make sure you don't delay on booking your FastPass+ as soon as your booking window opens. If you're staying on property at one of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, you can begin making your FP+ reservations 60 days in advance. For offsite guests, you can do so at 30 days out. 

    I hope you have a magical trip!
