    Hello, with the new tier structure in Hollywood Studios, there are no attractions in Tier 2 that interest us, can we a) split our fast passes between parks or b) if we choose only one for Hollywood, can we elect the other 2 for a different park day of?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Chelsea!

    FastPass+ is such a great tool for your family to use to save some time and skip the standby line when you're on vacation at Walt Disney World Resort. With your theme park tickets, you have the benefit of being able to make three FastPass+ selections for each day of your trip 30 days in advance, or 60 days before your arrival date if you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. All three of your daily FastPass+ selections must be at the same theme park, so if you want to book something like Slinky Dog Dash on your first day, the other two selections that you make for that day in advance must also be for attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios. If you only make one selection for the day, once that FastPass+ has been redeemed, you can choose to book another one at a different theme park on the day of if you have the Park Hopper Option added to your tickets!

    With that being said, I suggest that you still make all three of your daily FastPass+ selections when your booking window opens. Since you can modify your choices at your convenience, there isn't really a benefit or an advantage to not booking three choices every single day in advance. You'd still have to wait until you redeem the FastPass+ selection you made for a tier-one attraction before you book any more tier-one FastPass+, so there's no harm in holding those two extra bookings in your back pocket. If you decide you'd rather do something else or head to another park that day, you can just modify your selection to something that works better for you. Remember that you can book a new tier-one FastPass+ as soon as you tap your MagicBand to redeem the one you had booked, so I always like to check for the next FastPass+ while I'm in line!

    Have a magical day, Chelsea!
