    So there were no 1st tier FP available for the day we are going to Hollywood Studios. How do I monitor if any become available and how often?

    Hi, Nick!

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    When we visit Walt Disney World, we try to be sure to utilize the fantastic--and complimentary--FastPass+ service to maximize the magic of our vacation. At times, however, the most popular attractions' FastPass+ reservations are gone right away; in that case, Guests can keep an eye on what may become available as others change their vacation plans.

    The easiest way to do so is to go into your My Disney Experience account, and click on the existing FastPass+ plans that you have for your Disney's Hollywood Studios day. Select "View Details" on a particular FastPass+ reservation in Disney's Hollywood Studios, then select "Modify"; add each Guest in your party, then click to the next screen. There, scroll down to "Choose a New Experience" to see those attractions with availability on that same day. 

    Take a look at that list several times each day, as newly-available FastPass+ reservations may become visible as Guests adjust their plans.

    When we don't have a particular FastPass+ for a must-do attraction, our backup plan is to track Wait Times for those attractions using the super-handy My Disney Experience mobile app. Lines may trend higher or lower around certain times of day, depending on park hours, nearby entertainment options, and even mealtimes. Adjust your current FastPass+ times to enable you to wait in line for the other attractions, and you'll be able to experience all of the magic--including some of the most entertaining experiences available only to those Guests who use the regular line for attraction entry. Be on the lookout for extra pixie dust!

    Happy planning your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Nick! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
