    Just hoping to get some reassurance. WII I be able to make FP+ selections @ 12:01 AM EST (parks will be closed) for rides like Soar'n & Toy Story Mania 60 days out (we're staying at WDW), without loosing way too much sleep worrying about it?

    Hello Linda! You've got a great question. If you are staying on-site you will be able to schedule your FastPass+ selections 60 days in advanced of your trip. You should be able to schedule them after midnight as long as all of the parks are closed. This includes Extra Magic Hours. Last May I had to wait until after 1 a.m. to schedule my FastPass+ reservations because Magic Kingdom was open an hour later for Extra Magic Hours. I just scheduled my FastPass+ selections a couple of days ago for my upcoming trip in December and waited until the evening on the day of, and was still able to get everything I wanted. I definitely don't suggest loosing sleep and stressing over Disney's FastPass+ Service. It's supposed to make planning less stressful!

    To help the planning go smoothly I suggest you have all of the FastPass+ selections you want written down and a couple of back-ups just in case. Also make sure you know the times of all of your Advanced Dining Reservations so that you plan accordingly. It also helps to know a general idea of where the attractions are located so that you aren't running across the park for an attraction and having to run all the way back to the other side. 

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you need anything else, and have a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
