    Our 60 day window to book FP+ is approaching soon! I can start booking at midnight EST correct? And, what is the best strategy to booking rides? I read somewhere I should start at the end of my trip and work backwards. Is that a good route to take?

    Hi Jared:

    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  How exciting, your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation will be here before you know it!  The 60 day FastPass+ window does open as of 12:01 am, Eastern Standard Time 60 days prior to your arrival at Walt Disney World Resort.  When I book my FastPass+ options, I do start at the end of my vacation to book the more popular attractions, so I can make sure I have the best chances of securing those hard to get attractions.  If you begin at the start of your vacation, the booking window has been open for several days for other guests to reserve their FastPass+ options, leaving fewer FastPass+ selections available.  By booking in reverse I find that I am able to secure more of my must do attractions, as fewer guests have been able to book for those days.  Once you have made your must do selections, the order shouldn't really matter.  

    Good luck in making your FastPass+ selections Jared.  Please let me know if you have any other questions, I would be happy to help.
