    My fastpass window opens up next week. I will be logging on at 6 am Central Standard Time (7 a.m. Eastern) Do I need to worry about calculating the times when selecting my fast passes or are the times on the site the time at Disney? Hope that makes sense.

    Hi there, Courtney,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's great to assist you again with your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    I always get so excited when my booking window opens for making FastPass+ selections because it means our vacation is quickly approaching. When you book your FastPass+ selections, the available times shown in My Disney Experience should be in EST. You should not need to calculate the time difference when making your selections. The times indicated on the website will be in Eastern Standard Time since Walt Disney World Resort is located in that time zone. For example, if you choose a FastPass+ selection for 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m., you will want to arrive for that experience between 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST.

    Guests may begin booking FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance. If you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can begin making your FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to check-in for your entire length of stay. If there are any attractions or experiences on your "must do" list, I highly recommend booking those first.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Let us know if you have any new questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Happy Planning,
