    How does the fast passes work? I heard that after a person uses all 3 that they can request more. Is this True?

    Hello, Amy! It's my pleasure to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Amy, the ability to skip the standby line for some favorite attractions by using the Fastpass+ system is just one reason my family and I love the Disney parks so much! 

    Amy, I am happy to report that yes, you are correct; after you complete your third Fastpass+ selection, you can get more (based on availability). Amy, my family and I use this strategy all of the time and have had great success.

    One tip I will offer up is that we try to plan all of our Fastpass+ times earlier in the day (say, before 3:00 pm). This increases our chances of scoring more as the day goes on. On one trip we managed to grab two extras and I felt as proud as Mulan defeating the Huns! Amy, make sure to have the My Disney Experience Mobile App downloaded on your smart phone and updated before you hit the parks. 

    Another strategy that helps is when you are booking your first three Fastpass+ selections (which you are able to do 30 days in advance or 60 days in advance of your arrival if you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel) is to do so in order of importance for you and not necessarily in chronological order. For example, when visiting EPCOT, my number one priority is Soarin' Around the World, so even if that is day number three of our trip, I will book that first. 

    Amy, I hope this helps as you are looking ahead and dreaming about your upcoming visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Please come back and see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other Fastpass+ questions or trip planning questions you might have. 

    Best wishes for a pixie-dusted stay,
