    Group of 14, diff ages, staying off-site. Do we have a better chance of getting "hard to get" Fast Passes by booking separately, or is it still best to link our accounts by mirroring to get them at the same time? Can indv changes then be made?

    Hi Angela,

    How wonderful that you are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation for a big group. I remember a few years ago when we visited with my parents, my sister and her family. The 11 of us had a great time.

    FastPass+ lets you skip the lines and reserve up to three of your favorite attractions, up to 30 days in advance. However, if you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you can make reservations up to 60 days ahead of time, giving you a leg up with those hard to book attractions. New exciting changes have been recently introduced, which allows you to make and change your FastPass+ selections much easier than ever. Either online or via the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can now select just one FastPass+ if you want, modify individual ones, and even select new ones at the parks, after you used the initial ones you selected in advance, bypassing the kiosks.

    You could link your accounts together and try to select for everyone, or you may try to individually select FastPass+ that overlap the arrival times. Remember that you get a one hour window to arrive for most experiences. For a big group as yours, you may also want to consider a nice meal, and a character one would be my recommendation, like Chef Mickey's. You get to meet Mickey and his pals, and the meal is served buffet style, a great option especially for those picky eaters. Just call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463.

    See you real soon!
