    Is there a penalty for missing a Fastpass+ selection? Not sure when planning ahead if all time frames will work. Any tips on planning Fastpass+ and coordinating with ADRs would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi Emily!

    I'm so glad that you decided to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel for tips on planning your family's upcoming visit to Walt Disney World!

    There are no penalties for missing a previously reserved FastPass+ selection.
    As soon as you realize that one of your pre-selected FastPasses is not going to fit into the day's schedule, simply pop onto your smart phone via the in-park WiFi and make some changes or new selections using the My Disney Experience app! It's that simple. If you won't have a smart phone or other WiFi enabled device with you in the parks, simply stop by a Guest Relations Desk, any Resort Concierge desk or any of the self-serve, MyMagic+ kiosks located around the parks. It's a very user-friendly system and you'll find that there's great flexibility to adapt to your family's changing needs throughout your visit.

    As far as coordinating FastPass+ selections with your ADRs goes ... well ... this system is pretty smart! When selecting attractions and time slots online in advance (or making changes during your visit) - you'll notice a 'note' will display if an Attraction Return Time window overlaps with a Dining Reservation you've already linked to your My Disney Experience profile. You'll then be able to review whether the conflict is still 'doable' or if you'd like to change your experience or time. Isn't that great?

    I just returned from an 8-night visit with my own family using FastPass+, MagicBands and the My Disney Experience App the whole time. We had a fabulous time and I found the entire system so easy to use. Gone are the days of carrying around my printed pages of itineraries! I simply open my app and 'Voila!' - all my plans are right there at my fingertips!

    If you have additional questions about your planning, please don't hesitate to write me back Emily. I'd love to hear from you again.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time planning your visit to Walt Disney World!
