    FP Question! I'm not staying on resort so I know I am able to book online 30 days in advance. What I am wondering is if I will have to book them on 5 different days ? So if I am going to be in MK on Mar 1st then AK on Mar 3rd etc .. Tks!

    Hey, Lisa! It sounds like you have done some magical homework! What you are asking is correct. Guests who are visiting Walt Disney World Resort and staying off-site do make their FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance of any day they plan to visit one of the theme parks. You will not be able to make your FastPass+ selections for your entire trip once you are 30 days from that first day you visit. Instead, you will only make that day's plans. Then, you will make the next day's plans on the following day and so forth. Being able to make FastPass+ for multiple days all at once is a benefit given to those that stay at one of the Resort hotels. In those instances, once the guest reaches 60 days before their date of resort check-in, their booking window expands to cover their entire resort stay.

    In my experience, Lisa, there has still been a great selection of FastPass+ experiences once our 30-day window opens. Of course, some of the most popular attractions may have limited availability. Don't let that deter you! Keep checking back, especially in the week before your trip, as guest change their plans often. I have gotten some great FastPass+ choices the day before, even the day of when we have had to change our plans or have taken last minute trips. If you wind up not being able to get a FastPass+ selection for your favorite attraction, make visiting it your top priority! I always recommend guests arrive early to the theme parks and take advantage of lower crowds the first hour to two hours of the day. Arrive well before the park opens and head straight to your destination. You'll be having fun faster than you can spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    I hope this information helps you plan a magical Disney day! Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
