    Hi Moms Panel, when it comes to fastpass+ can a resort guest make selections 60 days in advance or is it 60 + 10 days? Also what time of day do fast passes become available, is it 1201am or park opening time? Thanks for all your planning help Moms panel.

    Hi, Tracy! Thanks for stopping by with your question. I am so happy to see you are planning your FastPass+ selections well in advance of your vacation. There are a couple of FastPass+ choices that can be hard to get, so knowing exactly when to be on My Disney Experience can be quite important!

    Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels can begin making their FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of check-in for the length of their stay, up to 10 days. Guests who are not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel will make their FastPass+ selections one day at a time, beginning 30 days before their date of park visit.

    Generally, Guests are able to begin making their FastPass+ selections when their window opens for the new day at midnight. However, we have noticed that when Magic Kingdom Park is open past midnight, then the new day's FastPass+ availability does not load until that park is closed. For example, I was helping a friend with her FastPass+ selections recently, and the system was not loading the day she needed at midnight. I checked park hours and noted that Magic Kingdom Park hours were extended to 1:00 a.m. We waited a bit for the Fairy Godmother to flick her magic wand, and with a "bibbidi bobbidi boo," the new day's FastPass+ options appeared at 1:10 a.m.

    I hope you have a magical day, Tracy, and great success with your FastPass+ selections! Please stop by again if you have other questions for us.
