    HI, If I have my first fast pass from 9am both for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, how long time I need to get from part entrance there including waiting quues in December at the entrance opening? will I miss my fastpass?

    Hi Anita Nikoletta,

    Greetings again! I’m so glad you brought us another question. We truly LOVE helping Guests plan the same kinds of magical vacations that our families enjoy!

    I have some GREAT news for you. Your FastPass+ window is actually open for one full hour, so if your first FastPass+ begins as soon as the theme park opens, you’ll be able to enter the FastPass+ queue anytime within that hour time frame. When you log in to your My Disney Experience account and view all of your plans, you should see your FastPass+ selection listed as well as the number of Guests that it’s for and an arrival window of time that spans one hour. For example, if you made your selection for 9:00 AM, it should show your window to be 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM. You should have no trouble making it to your first attraction!

    I generally encourage Guests who want to be there when the park first opens to arrive at least 30-45 minutes before opening to make sure that you have plenty of time to go through security and ticketing before beginning your magical day. In fact, if you’re ready to start your day at 9:00 AM, I’d encourage you to take advantage of the lowest wait times of the entire day and experience another attraction or two before entering that first FastPass+ queue. Just make sure you don’t miss the end of your return window! Also, since your FastPass+ selections seem to be scheduled early in the day, did you know that once you've enjoyed your initial three selections, you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to schedule additional FastPass+ selections, one at a time, until the theme parks close?

    Please let us know what else we can help you with, Anita Nikoletta, and have a truly magical vacation!
