    I planned fast passes in advance for everyday, but some of them are in the afternoon/ evening. I feel like it may be better to be more flexible with fast passes, instead of waiting later in day to use fast passes thoughts? any special events that week ?

    Hi Margaret! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Only TWO more days until your Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins! It sounds like you have a lot of fun planned for your Thanksgiving holiday trip.

    Personally, I try to plan my FastPass+ selections for earlier in the day, because once we use our initial three FastPass+ we can book more (one at a time, subject to availability) as we explore the theme parks. This helps us get the most use out of the FastPass+ system. With that said, there are some attractions that are very popular, so if it was between selecting an afternoon time for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or getting "it's a small world" in the morning, for example, I would definitely opt for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train! My advice is to try to switch your FastPass+ to an earlier time if possible, but if you can't, you will still save a lot of time by using the FastPass+ that you have!

    Depending on how long your stay is, you might be able to catch Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on November 25, 2018. This special event is a separately ticketed event and it is SO much fun! You are arriving just in time to experience the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays that begins November 18, 2018. I loved this festival last year with the special Holiday Kitchens and entertainment that was unique to the various countries represented around World Showcase. I highly recommend this special event!

    I hope your holiday is magical, Margaret! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
