    Our family is heading to Disney World for the first time on April 29th - May 5th. Two questions is this a good time to visit? And when can I start my fasspass selections? I think it is tomorrow but the calendar only shows March 30th.

    Hello Aubrey,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with some great questions. I am excited to hear that your magical vacation is less than two months away. No matter what time of year you choose, you really cannot go wrong with a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort on any day of the year. I have actually visited during the  time of year that you will be arriving and the weather has always been wonderful and the crowds very manageable.

    If you are a guest of a Disney Resort Hotel, with prepaid theme park admission, you can make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance of your arrival date. Make sure that your Resort Hotel reservation and theme park admission tickets have been linked to your My Disney Experience account. This should allow you to make your FastPass+ selections for the duration of your trip, since you are less than 60 days away from your arrival date. If you are still having difficulties you may need to call the Help Center at (407) 939-4357. I hope that answers your question. If you need any more assistance before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
