    This will be our first trip to Disney as a family and we are beyond excited. How exactly do the Fastpasses work? Does everyone in the group need to use a fastpass to be on the same ride together? How many do you get per person per day?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Corey!

    I must say that I am also beyond excited for you! Planning a first visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth can sometimes seem a little overwhelming, but you have definitely come to the right place for tips and advice.

    Disney FastPass+ is a complimentary service already included with theme park admission. It lets you reserve a special time to access select attractions and entertainment at all four theme parks. Each visitor can make 3 selections per theme park for each day of their visit 30 days in advance. Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel, Disney Springs Area Hotels or other select hotels can start planning up to 60 days before check-in.

    Once you get to the 30-day or 60-day mark, secure your FastPass+ selections online or using the My Disney Experience mobile app. After redeeming your initial 3 choices, use the app once again or visit an in-park FastPass+ kiosk to make a new selection. After you use this extra selection you are welcome to make another one and so on, but please note that new selections are subject to availability on the date of your visit.

    Guests traveling together are free to make different FastPass+ selections. My 9-year-old daughter is scared of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, however this is one of my favorite attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I ended up making a FastPass+ selection for myself, and my daughter and husband selected a different attraction during our last visit. Remember that you can also modify and change selections on the go by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Corey! Please stop by real soon with more questions as you plan your first visit!

    Best magical wishes,
