    If I have a 5 day park hopper ticket, and a reservation at a Disney resort at the beginning, or the end of my visit, but am staying offsite for the rest of my stay, how does the early fast pass booking work? Can I book them all at the 60 day mark?

    Hi Nicole and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    To help you understand how your FastPass+ selection times will work, let's pretend you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort on a Monday through a Friday and the dates are the 1st through the 5th. You said you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel at the beginning and end of your trip. We'll pretend that means you are staying on property Monday night and Thursday night. 

    You can make FastPass+ selections 60 days before your stay on Monday the 1st and you will be able to make selections for Monday and Tuesday, your check-out day. Then 60 days before Thursday the 4th you will be able to make FastPass+ selections for Thursday and Friday, your final check-out day. You would have to make your FastPass+ selections for Wednesday at the 30-day mark because it's not a part of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay. 

    I have heard of some people finding pixie dust in the form of a surprise in the system that allowed them to book all of their FastPass+ selections at the same time. However, my ability to make FastPass+ selections has always been directly related to the dates of my Resort Hotel reservations. 

    Nicole, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope this helps you understand the process. I hope you'll let me know if I can help you further with any planning questions!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
