    Ladies, it has been 20 years or so since i was at DW. The fastpass is new to me and what, when to schedule things. My child is 4, I want to schedule for her yet still be flexible, what is the best way to utilize the new products through my disney experienc

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Elizabeth! FastPass+ is an amazing way to guarantee a short line for your favorite attractions. I’ll drill down the best way to use and book them ahead of time!

    The first step is to consult your calendar and know what days you want to visit which parks. Then, make a short list of your top 3 must-ride attractions. These will become your FP+ selections! 60 days prior to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel check-in, you’ll log onto My Disney Experience (I prefer to use a laptop, but you can also utilize the mobile app) at 7am. Signing on early is key for top attractions like Flight of Passage and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train! When you visit the FastPass+ reservations page, you’ll have a few choices to make: a date, park and time slot. Then, you can select your attractions. The FastPass+ window for each selection is nearly an entire hour, meaning you can enter that queue at any time during that window. With small kids, I tend to make morning FastPass+ reservations and then have a clean break between lunch and dinner. That leaves us time for naps, a return to the hotel, parades or whatever the day might bring. Then, I might schedule our third pass for the late afternoon before dinner, or perhaps a post-dinner spin on Peter Pan’s Flight before we cap off the night.

    If I can give you some insight to top preschool attractions or tips for the Baby Care Center, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
