    Hi, what is the exact time of day somebody can make a Disney World FastPass reservation that is 30 days in advance? Is it 12pm EST/9pm PST? Or is it 12pm PST? I'm on the West Coast and not sure when I can submit for reservations with 30 days notice?

    Hi Colleen,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this question to us!

    Fast Pass+ is such a fabulous tool! My family loves planning our Fast Pass+ selections prior to the opening of our reservation window. Guests can now make Fast Pass + selections at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on the day their time window opens (60 days if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort and 30 days for those staying off property). 

    In prior years, the time was 12:00 midnight (Eastern Standard Time) and I fondly remember those days of staying up to make those reservations right as the time changed to midnight. At least now we get to sleep some! You, of course, will need to remember the time difference. 

    I hope you have created a My Disney Experience Account and downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App. We use My Disney Experience to track all of our Dining and Fast Pass+ reservations. The app is particularly handy while in the theme parks. We use it to get directions and track wait times for rides or attractions. 

    If your visit does occur after May 27th, remember to use Fast Pass+ to reserve at least one of the new rides in Pandora - The World of Avatar. My family cannot wait to ride Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey. 

    I hope you have a magical time Colleen!
