    I only have 1 fastpass+selection for Magic Kingdom. Online I have tried to add another selection but if I do, I may lose the time I have for my saved selection. Since you can have 3 fastpass+ opportunities! how can I add to my list?

    Hi Nancy, 

    You've run into a somewhat vexing feature of the FastPass+ system. The short answer to your question is that you can't add just two FP+ selections if you already have one. In your case, to get three FP+, you would have to first cancel your existing selection. Depending on whether this was a hard-to-get item, starting over may or may not make sense for you. 

    Now some background:

    Both the computer version of My Disney Experience and the MDE app automatically give you 3 FP+ per day, even if you only want one. On the computer you can go in and cancel the extraneous two (which is what you must have done), but you can't to this on the app. If you've created a lone FP+ on the computer, you can't later go in and add two without first canceling the existing one. (The system really wants every guest to have three FP+ to start with.)

    However, if you create a single FP+ on the computer and then use it, you force yourself into the same category at guests who have used all three of their FP+. This means that you can then make as many in-park selections as you want.This also negates all the rules about hopping and the tiers at Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. So if, for example, you make a single Test Track FP+ and use it, you could then run over to Epcot and make FP+ for Soarin. This would not normally be possible until a guest had used three FP+ selections. 

    Given your situation, you have to make a choice. Do you trash your existing FP+ and start over? Or do you keep your existing FP+, use it, and then make more selections while you're in the parks. Only you can decide what's right for your touring plan.
