    We are going to DW at Christmas time, Dec 18-22 and 25. Wondering about fast passes: Would the best plan be to book them in late morning and hope to get more after that, or assume they will all run out so space them throughout the day?

    Hi there Krista!

    Your Walt Disney World vacation will be here before you know it!  What a great question. I don't think you can honestly go wrong with either strategy. My family just visited over Thanksgiving week and found that we needed to do a combination of both depending on the park we were visiting. We also found that we needed to space our FastPass+ selections throughout the day at Disney's Hollywood Studios due to the times that were available and our Advanced Dining Reservations. I would attempt to book them in the late morning, but keep in mind that you may need to adjust that plan in order to find availability for a particular attraction. On the day after Thanksgiving, we did find availability for additional FastPass+ experiences after lunch, but not for any of the attractions that we were hoping to experience. I would highly recommend that you go ahead and book your FastPass+ selections now so that you have more options to choose from. 

    I hope this information is helpful in making the best decision for your family. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Krista!

    Happy Planning,
