    We are going with my kids marching band on April 6-10 & chaperoning 9 kid (3 adults). We just received our tickets & haven’t set up fast passes yet. Do you have any tips for us to get Fast passes together on such short notice? Thank you, Carrie

    Oh my goodness, Carrie! You must be so excited that your trip is just around the corner. Thank you for taking on the responsibility of chaperoning your kids' adventure with the marching band. Good chaperones are absolutely key to any successful school trip.

    While many guests have already made their FastPass+ reservations for April 6th - 10th, don't be discouraged. You will still have some great options for that week. I would take heart knowing that the bulk of your trip is more than one week after Easter. Most college students and American school children will have already completed their Spring Break and returned to the classroom. To test my hypothesis, I logged into my account this morning to see what FastPass+ reservations were available while you will be there and there were plenty of great choices in all four theme parks. There was even a Na'vi River Journey spot available for the taking on April 10th. 

    My advice would be to start by trying to make your FastPass+ reservations for the entire group in your My Disney Experience account. Be flexible with your time. Work your itinerary around the FastPass+ reservations that are available. Be willing to visit the four Disney theme parks in a different order than you originally intended, if need be. If it seems impossible to get FastPass+ reservations for your entire party, try breaking the group into several smaller groups and look for reservations with time slots that overlap. And finally, if you don't get exactly the FastPass+ reservations you wanted, check back periodically. Occasionally, additional spots become available as the plans of other guests change. 

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    Best wishes,
