    If I am checking into a Disney hotel 5 days before I go to a WDW park is my fast pass window 60 prior to my hotel checkin or 60 days prior to the first day I am going to the patk?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Megan and welcome to the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited you stopped by with your question. Your May/June 2019 trip will be here faster than you can say "Mickey Mouse"  and you will enjoy all the thrills, smiles, food, and fun that Mickey and the gang have in store.

    Your Fastpass+ selection booking window opens up to 60 days before you check-in to your Disney Resort Hotel. This is one of the best benefits of staying on property with a Disney Resort Hotel Package. Your window opened on April 1, 2019, and is still open. If you have not made any FastPass+ selections yet may I offer you some thoughts? First, if you do not get a FastPass+ for an attraction do not sweat it. Keep checking every day until your trip. Day of FastPass+ selections usually open up but you have to catch them at the right time. Second, look to make FastPass+ selections for mid-morning to early afternoon. Crowds are lowest in the early morning and build throughout the day. Third, try and make FastPass+ selections for Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Slinky Dog Dash at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park and Frozen Ever After at Epcot. Finally, try to arrive each theme park about 60 minutes before it officially opens so you can be ready when the "rope drops" and Guests are allowed inside. Many times the theme park will open early and you want to be at the front of the line.

    Disney Dad Tip: If you are in an attraction line when the theme park officially closes, you will be allowed to ride it.

    Megan, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
