    My husband and I are coming to DW this March with our 8 year old grand daughter and not quite sure how to use Fast Pass. We are staying on site, therefore able to book rides 60 days in advance. We live in Atlantic time zone, so what time can I start bookin

    Hi, Sharon! Thank you so much for bringing this great question to us. I am more than happy to help you understand the FastPass+ system better so you can see how it could make your Disney day a bit easier.

    All Guests who have linked a valid theme park ticket to their My Disney Experience account can begin making their complimentary FastPass+ selections at least 30 days in advance of their visit to a Walt Disney World Resort theme park. As a Guest staying at a Resort hotel, you have the added benefit of making your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance! Each new day will open on the FastPass+ system at 7:00 a.m. I urge to not just "let it go" when that window opens for you, as availability at some favorite attractions will go quickly!

    When your magical FastPass+ day arrives, you will be able to select up to three for each day, and each day's choices must be found in the same theme park. You will be able to make them for the number of days equal to the number of days on your tickets. The system will have you make one FastPass+ selection at a time and can show you all available time slots for the day. You may want to prioritize your must-do attractions, building your day's plan based on what is most important to you.

    When you arrive at the park and are ready to use your FastPass+ selection, simply scan your MagicBand or theme park ticket to the Mickey touchpoint. Once you have used all three each day, you can head to a FastPass+ kiosk within the park or load the My Disney Experience app on your smartphone to make another selection in the same park or even a different park, provided you have theme park tickets with the Park Hopper option.

    I hope this helps you, Sharon! Please stop by again if you have any other questions or would like some tips on great FastPass+ selections to make.
