    I'm planning on visiting the Animal Kingdom and Epcot in the same day via park hopper. If I use only two of my fastpasses in advanced at AK when will I be able to use the third at Epcot, the morning of my visit or after I've used the two at AK?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, John! If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, your FastPass+ selection date is coming up pretty soon, so it's a great idea to start thinking about how you'd like to use the three per day you're able to select in advance. 

    To answer your question right away: if you are planning on visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom, and then Epcot later on in the day, and you only make two FastPass+ selections in advance, you are able to select the third one for a different theme park as soon as you tap your MagicBand to use the second one. This is because if you are holding multiple FastPass+ reservations, they all must be for the theme same park.

    For this reason, I recommend that you go ahead and book all three of your FastPass+ selections at Disney's Animal Kingdom, the park you're planning on visiting first. Use the first two as you were planning to, and then when it comes time to use the third one, you can re-evaluate your plan and decide if you want to use it or modify your selection for an attraction at Epcot. If you decide to select and use three FastPass+ times for Disney's Animal Kingdom, once you've used all three of them, you are able to book more FastPass+ one at a time, even for another theme park. So, if you have FastPass+ booked for Avatar Flight of Passage at 9 a.m., Na'vi River Journey at 10 a.m., and DINOSAUR at 11 a.m., you can make a fourth FastPass+ selection for an attraction at Epcot through the My Disney Experience app as soon as you've tapped your MagicBand at the entrance to DINOSAUR at 11 a.m.

    I hope this helps you in planning your vacation, and be sure to let us know if you have any more questions!
