    I made a resort reservation for my parents a few days after making my own reservation. I'd like to do some dining reservations and Fast Pass selections as a group- how can I do this if my booking window is open a few days before theirs?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Heather! 

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your excellent question! I am here to help you navigate planning a multi-family Walt Disney World® Resort vacation. 

    Here are a few tips to help!

    • When your Advanced Dining Reservation window opens at the 180 day mark, you'll be able to include your entire party at that time, regardless of the check-in date of your parents. You're good-to-go!

    • When making your FastPass+ reservations at the 60 day mark, you will only be able to secure them for anyone listed on your reservation. If you include your parents, the system will prompt you with the following message: 

    "Sorry to Interrupt!
    To continue, please address the issues that apply to these Guests.
    Have a vacation package? Looks like you’re early. Please come back 60 days prior to check-in.
    Resort reservation within the next 60 days? Check that it’s linked to your account.
    Theme park tickets? You need to link them to your account.
    No theme park tickets? Purchase admission to start making FastPass+ selections." 

    • This message would include the names of the guests not yet able to make FastPass+ reservations. 

    My suggestion would be to secure those listed on your reservation at the 60 day mark. Two days later, you can secure your parents' FastPass+ with times that overlap yours. Luckily, there is a one-hour arrival window for FastPass+ attractions, so even if you only overlap by one minute, you'll be able to ride together. Plus, there is a five minute grace period ;) Also, make sure your parents are linked to your My Disney Experience Account via "Friends & Family."

    I hope this helps, Heather! Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
