    Hi, we are going on our first Disney trip! In regards to Fast Pass+, I've read that we can only select our next Fast Pass+ after our first 3 original selections have been used or expired. How does this work if one of our originals is later in the day?

    Hello Deanna, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great planning question.

    I am so happy to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort later this year. You are certainly in the middle of planning a great trip. FastPass+ will definitely save you time waiting in the Standby Lines of some of your favorite rides and attractions.

    When I begin to plan how to best utilize the FastPass+ system to plan my day in a Disney Theme Park, I try to schedule my FastPass+ experiences as early in the day as possible. This will allow a better opportunity to obtain a 4th FastPass+ experience if there is availability. The system will not allow you to obtain a 4th FastPass+ until you have either used all of your initial experiences or their time frames have expired. Once you have redeemed the last of your 3 initial experiences, you can begin to explore availability for the 4th experience from a FastPass+ kiosk or the My Disney Experience Mobile app from your smartphone or tablet device. If you are using a FastPass+ for a fireworks show or evening entertainment, I would suggest booking a dining package or dessert party to save your FastPass+ for something else. I hope that helps with your planning. If you have any other questions, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
