    Hello panel .. when I was reserving my 3 fast passes I noticed some rides were all taken.. so my question is after I use my 3 FastPasses will those rides that were not available become available that day I’m in the park ? Fingers crossed :)

    Hi Victoria. Thanks so much for sharing all of your questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love how you are planning so many details of your upcoming vacation in March.

    As you have found, some of the attractions at Walt Disney World Resort are wildly popular amongst Guests. The safest answer is that it may be difficult to secure FastPass+ selections for certain attractions that are already booked. However, you never know when pixie dust might find you and I have some tips as you plan your trip and enjoy your time in the theme parks.

    1. Between now and your vacation, periodically visit your My Disney Experience app and see if a selection has opened up for you as plans may change for other Guests.
    2. Because you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, be sure to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours. The calendar on the Walt Disney World Resort website has a list of theme parks, dates and times of Extra Magic Hours during your vacation. It also shows all theme park, water park and Disney Springs hours which is so helpful in your planning. On our last visit, we went for a high-octane spin on Test Track 5 times one morning thanks to Extra Magic Hours. 4 using the standby queue and once with our FastPass+ selection. The kids loved every moment of designing and testing their car.
    3. When you are in the theme park, periodically review wait times and/or check your mobile device or FastPass+ kiosk to see if a time has opened for your must do attraction.

    I'm sending happy thoughts your way!
