    One of the rides we wanted to book is already full. Are more fastpasses released at the parks on the day?? Is it worth keeping one of the 3 passes available and sort it on the day at the park

    Hi Julie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation is JUST around the corner! Of the 45 attractions that offer Disney's FastPass+, as well as the 15+ shows and character experiences that also participate in FastPass+ reservations, some do become completed reserved to the point where there are no openings. Yet sometimes more times are released. While there isn't a hard and fast rule if and when or how this happens, previously completely book attractions have been known to have surprise openings. The best advice is to keep checking back between now and your planned park day for the attraction reservation you're hoping to attain as some guests do release their reservations as they change their plans.

    Another Pro Tip I can offer is to search for attraction reservations in smaller numbers within 60 minutes of each other. Each FastPass+ Reservation can be redeemed for up to one full hour from the initial reservation time, which gives these smaller groups a chance to experience the attraction together. An example is if there are six people in your group, try to book two reservations at 2:00 P.M., two more reservations at 2:20 P.M., and the final two reservations at 2:35 P.M., or however the times happen to fall. Then, all six people would be able to experience the attraction together at any point that those three reservation times overlap, which in the example would be from 2:35 P.M. until 3:00 P.M.

    Bonus Help: Here's a map of all in-park FastPass+ Kiosks so you can easily schedule more attraction reservations during your Disney Days!

    I hope this helped, Julie, and We'll See You Real Soon!
