    During what hours do you book your Fast Passes? For instance, normal park hours or is it feasible to book your Fast Passes during the Extra Magic Hours? Thanks in advance for your response! We have less than a month to book ours and I'm pretty excited!

    Hi there, Kara! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you so much for stopping by to see us with your question. I love that you're so excited, and I totally understand why. Planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is tons of fun!

    Everyone has their own strategy for how they schedule their FastPass+ attractions, but do note that FastPass+ is only available during regular Theme Park operating hours, and not during Extra Magic Hours or other events that take place outside regular hours. But this is good news for you, Kara! If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours benefit and hop on many attractions with much shorter wait times, without having to burn any of your FastPass+ selections. How sweet is that?

    When you're scheduling your FastPass+ selections, remember that you can start making additional selections after you've used those first three you scheduled in advance. Let's use a day at the Magic Kingdom Park as an example. Say you've selected Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, and The Haunted Mansion as your initial three FastPass+ attractions (that would be a great Disney day, by the way!). After you use them, you'll be able to pop into your My Disney Experience account and grab another FastPass+ selection. Once you've used that one, you'll get another, and another, and so on until the Park closes - even in a different Park if you want! With that in mind, it often makes sense to schedule those FastPass+ attractions earlier in the day so you can maximize the "rolling" ones you get throughout the day!

    I hope this helps you make a plan for those FastPass+ selections, Kara! If you have any more questions about that, or any other aspect of your planning, please come see us again. We love to help!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
