    Can I choose a certain time of day for my FastPass? For example, late afternoon.

    Hi, Lisa! FastPass+ has helped my family have a more enjoyable and relaxing day while touring Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. While I previously was the “FastPass runner” in the family, I now do my running up to 60 days in advance of our trip when I complete our FastPass+ selections online in My Disney Experience.

    When you make your three FastPass+ selections for each day of your vacation, the system will offer four different scenarios from which to choose. The best part of this is that after selecting one of the options, you can go to individual FastPass+ selections and edit the times according to their availability. When I make our FastPass+ selections, I either choose the option that is close to what we want or the one that covers times totally outside of the window I desire, knowing that I can go back into each individual FastPass+ selection to modify it as close as possible to the window of return that I desire.

    For example, sometimes I would like all of my Magic Kingdom Park selections to be in the afternoon, but the system offers me times that are totally different from what I am seeking. I instead select the option that has all of them scheduled in the morning. I then go back in to click the blue Update FastPass+ button. After opening the appropriate day's FastPass+ selections, I click Select New Time under each individual FastPass+ selection. The system will show all available times for that attraction that day, putting me back in control of how we want to experience our magical vacation.

    The FastPass+ system is very easy to work around once you get the hang of updating your selections. I really like the Update FastPass+ section as it allows me to see all available times so I can make the best choice for my family. I hope this information helps you with your vacation planning. Feel free to come back and ask more questions about the process.
