    Would you explain how fast pass selection works? I know you can pick 60 days out but is that day by day or for your entire stay. Also, do you expect crazy crowds the week of December 9?

    Dear Jennifer,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your terrific question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Yes, the great news is that you can select all of your FastPass+ choices for your entire stay when it is 60 days prior to your check-in date! That makes it super easy to get the best selection (and saves you the headache of having to log in for multiple days in a row!). I recommend doing a trial run a couple of days ahead of time just to make sure that your login information works and that you are able to access the system without a problem.

    In terms of the week that you asked about, that's a pretty decent time crowd-wise, after Thanksgiving and before Christmas! You will definitely see the crowds beginning to increase the closer to Christmas that you get. 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
