    Hi we are a group of 14 staying outside of the parks in October. Although we have been a few times to WDW my question is: when booking the 3 Fast Passes 30 days before do we have to use all 3 before we can book any more?

    Hi Karen,

    Wow, it sure sounds like you have a wonderful fall getaway planned with lots of Mouseketeers! With Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, warm weather, and moderate crowds, you're visiting at a great time of year!

    Yes, you're exactly right that as a Guest staying off-site, you'll be able to book three FastPass+ selections per day beginning 30 days in advance. Your FastPass+ planning window will open at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time, so I'd suggest logging in to your My Disney Experience account a few minutes before that so that you're ready to go as soon as your window opens. That will give you the best chance to find the perfect FastPass+ selections for your trip! And yes, you'll either need to enjoy all three of your FastPass+ selections or allow the scheduled arrival window to pass before you'll be able to make any additional selections. While the three original selections all need to be at the same theme park, your fourth and subsequent choices may be at any theme park. You'll simply use an in-park kiosk or the My Disney Experience app to make additional selections, one at a time, until the parks close.

    Here's a Moms Panel tip for you: Did you know that you may make your next selection as soon as you've entered the queue for your last active FastPass+? You don't need to wait until the end of the hour-long window to make that next selection!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Karen, and have a truly magical vacation with your entire group!
