    When our date is available to purchase fast passes for WDW, it is East Coast standard time or our time zone? So, if I stay up on the day before we can get our fast passes, will it let me after midnight East Coast Time if I live in the West Coast time?

    Hey Melissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am thrilled to receive your great questions about making FastPass+ selections!

    The FastPass+ selection “window” opens at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time, or as I like to refer to it, Mickey Standard Time. In other words, your FastPass+ selection “window” opens at 4:00 a.m. Pacific Time. FastPass+ selection “windows” no longer open at midnight.

    Please remember that in order to start making FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of your vacation, you must have a valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket or annual pass already linked to your My Disney Experience account. If you are also staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can begin making FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your check-in date — for the entire length of your stay!

    Melissa, I've got great news for you! You will not need to purchase FastPass+ selections — they are complimentary! FastPass+ service is included with your Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket or annual pass purchase. Woo-hoo!

    I hope I have helped answer your questions. If you have any additional questions, or want our suggestions about what rides and attractions to make FastPass+ reservations for, please visit us again. We are all EARS!
