    Hi! Looking for advice about FP selections for 10/2015. It's a surprise trip for our 4 children (10-16 yrs). We have to split our parks per day. Decided on MK in AM/Epcot PM then AK AM/HS PM. Would you save FP for PM or use in AM & hope for the best in

    Hi there Jessica!

    How exciting to be planning a surprise trip to the Walt Disney World Resort for your children! As a mom of four children ranging in age from 10 to 17, I would love to assist you with this question. When my family visits Walt Disney World, we frequently split our days between two parks. My strategy has always been to book my FastPass+ selections for the second park that we will be visiting. I have often found that it be very difficult to find FastPass+ availability for many of our "can't miss" attractions, when trying to book them on the day of our actual visit in the afternoon. I would also suggest that you arrive at the first park right at park opening in order to take advantage of the lower crowd levels. My family can usually experience most of our favorite attractions within the first few hours of park opening. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have as your vacation approaches. Best wishes for a magical trip, Jessica!

    Happy Travels,
