    If FastPass search states 'no passes available' - possible for additional to be released the next day? Half of my party has FP to meet Mickey - trying to get all 4 without 2 of us waiting for hours in standby.

    Hello Monica, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I am so happy to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World during the holiday season in just a few weeks! I love being able to use FastPass+ to save time waiting in the standby lines of some of my favorite rides and attractions.

    There are a limited number of FastPass+ available during each time frame per day. Once all the FastPass+ have been distributed for that day, you will see the message stating there is no more availability. The system will not make more FastPass+ available to guests the next day. However, if a guest who has a FastPass+ reservation for a ride or attraction cancels it, the system will make it available to another guest to pick up. I would suggest that you continue to check for availability for just the 2 members of your travel party to see if you can find something available that overlaps the time frame for the FastPass+ you already hold. The other option is to get to the park just before it opens and head straight to the Town Square Theater to meet Mickey Mouse first thing in the morning. The lines will be much shorter and you will minimize your wait time in line. You can also release your FastPass+ and choose another experience or go back and meet Mickey again.

    You should know that wait times can be more pleasant with the Play Disney Parks Mobile app available for your smartphone or tablet devices. I hope that helps with your planning. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
