    FastPass+ strategy: I am using FastPass+ for the first time and I am getting many afternoon times vs. morning. With the new system, what do to recommend to maximize rides and minimize wait times? Going the first week in June. Thank you!

    Heigh-Ho Diana!

    I am also visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in June and planned a last-minute vacation. So I am also finding many afternoon and evening FastPass+ selection times. I actually prefer it this way though, because my touring strategy is to be there for park openings and then go back to the resort to rest or go to the pool mid-day when crowds are usually heaviest and the weather is hottest. The first hours of park opening are usually lightest in terms of crowds, and my family is able to accomplish so much without using FastPass+. The key is to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to park opening. Then we'll return in the evening or late afternoon, use our FastPass+ selections, and enjoy the nighttime entertainment and have a good meal. 

    If you find that this strategy does not work for you, then you always have the flexibility to change your FastPass+ selections via the web, the My Disney Experience mobile app, or at a FastPass+ kiosk around the theme parks.

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please ask away. Have a magical, fantastical vacation!
