    How many days ahead to make fast pass selections?

    Hi, Karen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on planning your trip and FastPass+ reservations!

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel inside the Walt Disney World Resort have a massive advantage when it comes to booking FastPass+ reservations. They can make their selections 60 days before their check-in date!

    This advantage is vital for Guests who want to use FastPass+ for attractions like Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park, for example. It's also a great advantage to help you visit the Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in the early hours of the morning when the animals are more active.

    If you choose to stay in a hotel that's not inside the Walt Disney World Resort, you will be able to make your selections 30 days before your visit.

    Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels can also enjoy many other benefits, so make sure to discover them before you make your reservation. The complimentary transportation, for example, was a game-changer (and a money saver) for our family!

    I hope that this information inspires you to take the magical dive into your planning as soon as possible, Karen. For me, planning a Disney vacation is as magical as the trip itself!

    As more questions pop up along the way, please, don't hesitate to come back to our website. We love to help!

    May the magic be with you,
