    Is there a free service (like but that helps find fast passes and alerts you for free if it becomes available?

    Hey, Amanda! The FastPass+ system has taken our days in the theme parks from practically perfect in every way to supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! A fantastic benefit to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is that I can do this up to 60 days in advance of our resort check-in. Since all other guests make these selections up to 30 days in advance of each day they visit a theme park, this early access can help us get FastPass+ selections for some popular attractions.

    The best way to find current FastPass+ availability is within the My Disney Experience mobile app. Guest often change their plans, especially in the final weeks and days leading up to their vacation, so keep an eye out for your favorites! I have never personally seen a free service that would continually search for FastPass+ availability and then alert seekers in a timely manner. I recommend you continue using the mobile app to see if any pixie-dust gets sprinkled your way. Also, modify the number of guests you are selecting for each FastPass+. If you have a party of six, try to get two parties of three or maybe a party of four and a party of two. You can make them for overlapping times so that you can all enjoy the attraction together. For example, two of you for 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and four at 10:20 a.m. - 11:20 a.m. This would give you an overlapped time of use for 10:20 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. If you still are unable to get the FastPass+ you seek, arrive early at the theme park, around 45 minutes before opening, and head straight to your desired attraction. This will help you minimize your time in its queue and can help you head on to other adventures faster!

    I hope this helps you FastPass+ your way to a magical Disney day!
