    I will be making FastPass+ reservations in about three weeks and need to know if there is any point in using FastPass+ for scheduled shows (i.e. Hollywood Studios) since everybody enters together at scheduled times?

    Hi, Bruce! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for bringing us your question! 

    One of my favorite things about planning my Walt Disney World Resort family vacations is scheduling my park days. I use the My Disney Experience app to make and keep track of all my reservations.I have made all my dining reservations and of course, my FastPass+ reservations, right from my smart device. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! 

    When it comes to which FastPass+ selections to make, it all depends on what your family prefers. If you are hoping to enjoy all the big thrills you can during your stay, adding all those super fun attractions is a must! But if your family prefers a more leisurely day at the parks, I would add in those entertainment FP+ selections that will allow you to enter the shows early and take a break from your day while you wait for some world class entertainment to begin.

    For my crew, it’s more about the rides, so we usually stick to getting FP+ reservations for those. But I do have some favorites in the entertainment category that I always FastPass+. My favorite? Finding Nemo- the musical at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    One last tip: Did you know that once you use your third FP+ reservation, you can book another one right on the app?  I try to book my FastPass+ reservations early in the day so that once I use my third one, I pop back into My Disney Experience App to book another one, and another one, and another as I use them up. It’s a great feature that allows you to see and do even more at the place where the magic is endless! 

    I hope you have a great trip! Come back and see us soon!
