    This is our first Disney trip as adults and we are bringing our 3 year old and 16 month old in May. I've heard to book FP+ back-to-back, but how long I should plan between Fast Pass times? I know it is ride/location dependent (MK/HS), just wanted an idea.

    Hi Lacey!

    Your kids are at such a fun age for Walt Disney World!  I am envious of your upcoming trip!

    First, I like to decide if I want my FastPass+ selections to be in the morning, afternoon, or evening.  If you have them in the morning, then you are more likely to have time to be able to add additional selections once those are used. However, if you don't plan to go to the parks until later, it's nice to know that you already have at least three attractions reserved. Now that I have a teenager, our days usually start MUCH later than when they were little:-)

    It's honestly up to you whether you book them back to back.  Sometimes we do, (if we know we want to add more later), and sometimes we don't.  For example, we may reserve Space Mountain for our first attraction, and know that we will want to spend some more time in Tomorrowland before moving to another "land", so we would book our next ride for a few hours later.  

    If you wish to book them back to back, then you shouldn't worry about time.  You have an hour window for each attraction and that is more than enough time to get from one to the other, even including riding time.  If you don't wish to be in a hurry, then you could book them further apart.  Totally your call, but no worries either way!

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
