    Feeling a little FP+ stress. Do you recommend using all of my FP+ experiences in the morning? When booking online, can I request to ride Peter Pan at 3pm or will it assign me a time? What about the kiosks at the rides themselves? What are they for? THX!

    Hi Amanda,
    No worries ... I'm happy to give you some tips about Disney's newest technology, FastPass+. The system is still in a testing phase, but I've used it a few times now and really enjoyed it. Each panelist might have a different method on how they utilize their FastPass+ options, but I prefer to stand in "stand by" lines in the morning and save my FastPass+ for afternoon or evening. You'll notice wait times increase as the day goes on. I've also noticed a quirky nuance where my desktop computer offers me more options on My Disney Experience than my smartphone. For instance, my smartphone app did not offer any options for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train however my computer did. I also suggest taking whatever time slots are offered. You can go back in and "change the time" of the experience whereas many more time slots will likely become available. The kiosks are scattered around the parks to offer iPad touchscreens of My Disney Experience. Cast Members will be available to assist with your FastPass+ questions. We actually preferred selecting additional FastPass+ options or changing times from the kiosks versus our smartphones. In the event we had a question, a Cast Member was readily available. 

    I hope my answer was helpful, Amanda! I'm happy to answer any other questions as your trip approaches. 

    Best wishes for a magical vacation.
