    I am feeling somewhat rushed and I'm not there yet! With all our dinning reservations and FastPass selections we have a busy day each day. Any advice so I don't feel so rushed to make it from one place to the next and can enjoy our vacation?

    Welcome back Christina!

    I completed understand where you are coming from. When looking at your Itinerary in your My Disney Experience account, it's hard not to see all those reservations and FastPass+ selections and think you will be running around park like Dash after ten Mickey Bars.

    I assure you its not as full as it looks. Remember, each of your FastPass+ selection actually gives you a one hour window to enjoy the attraction. For example, if you have two FastPass+ selections back-to-back at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. you could experience your first attraction at 1:00 p.m. then you would have all the way until 3:00 p.m. to experience your second attraction.

    A couple of hints to make your itinerary flow better:

    • Make your Advanced Dining Reservations at breakfast and dinner and let lunch take you where it may.
    • Try to schedule FastPass+ selection in geographic order.
    • Get a good idea of the layout of each theme park before you arrive at Walt Disney World.
    • Take advantage of Extra Magical Hours to maximize your time in the theme parks.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
