    If we don’t make it to the first of our initial 3 fastpasses, does this “tie up”our being able to get our fourth in another park? Or would it just “go away” as if we’ve used it? Hope that makes sense! Thanks!!

    Hi Ann, welcome BACK to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We love when our long time friends come back to visit us again and again.

    I completely understand your question because I've often wondered about this too. Thanks to a missed alarm clock two trips ago I have first hand experience with this answer.

    Should you miss the one-hour window to experience one of your FastPass+ reservations, there is no penalty to your other selections. Your missed attraction pass will remain in your account as though you used it, and just like normal, you will be unable to make a 4th reservation for the remainder of the day until after you have used your 3rd selection.

    However, you can cancel or reschedule any FastPass+ selection right up until the start of it's one-hour window for when you know that you're going to miss the experience, and you can do so from wherever you are thanks to the My Disney Experience App. If you wake up late you can cancel your reservation from your resort hotel or if you're stuck in traffic you can reschedule right from your phone. This way you can still use your this selection on another attraction. However if you want to make a reservation for a different park you'll need to wait until your last FastPass+ attraction has been redeemed.

    I hope this information helped a bit, Ann, and don't forget to set two alarms. We'll see you real soon!
