    We will be checking in at a Disney Resort on November 13...will I be able to start booking FastPasses at 7 am on September 13?

    Hi Kathy,

    How exciting that you already have a room at a Disney Resort hotel booked! To me, planning is a big part of the fun, so I hope that you enjoy these next few months dreaming about your upcoming vacation and getting excited for all of the magic that you'll experience and memories that you'll make!

    For Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel (like YOU!), FastPass+ selections may be made beginning 60 days before check-in. For your November 13th arrival, your 60-day window will actually open on September 14th beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time. You'll be able to make three selections per day for the entire length of your stay, up to 14 days. Did you know that once you have enjoyed those initial selections, you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to make additional FastPass+ selections, one at a time, until the parks close? I love the FastPass+ service and how much time it saves!

    The other window that you'll want to pay close attention to is 180 days before your arrival, which for you is May 17th. That's the day that you may begin making advanced dining reservations. Many Table-service restaurants are quite popular and will begin filling up way in advance, so I recommend making any selections as early as possible. You'll find lots of delicious options to please any palate!

    Thanks so much for visiting us the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kathy, and please let us know if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
