    We are doing 4 nights at the Grand Floridian, 5night Disney Cruise, then back to Disney for 4 nights at Animal Kingdom. Will I be able to book my fast passes for after the cruise when the window opens up for our first part of our trip before the cruise?

    Ahoy, Jamie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    First of all, let me congratulate you for putting the most fantastic trip together! It looks like a dream! 

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my favorite Disney Resort hotels! In my opinion, it has two of the best restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort: Sanaa and Jiko - The Cooking Place. The Moroccan Lamb Shank and the Oak-grilled Filet Mignon at Jiko - The Cooking Place are both surreal, and I honestly cannot go to the Walt Disney World Resort and skip this place. It's that good! 

    Since your Disney Resort reservations are not consecutive, though, you will not be able to book all of your FastPass+ reservations in the same window. You will, though, be able to access the system 60 days before each check-in date. That's a very strategic benefit of staying inside the Walt Disney World Resort, so don't forget to hit the system as soon as it opens at 7:00 AM Eastern Time! 

    I hope you have the most wonderful time during this trip, Jamie! If you have more questions about land or sea before your extraordinary trip is here, please, stop by! We love to help!

    May the magic be with you,
