    I am planning Fastpass selections for a day when we will be visiting both Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Am I able to make selections for both parks on the same day (3 selections total)? How do the ride "tiers affect my options when hopping parks?

    Hey, Steve!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. FastPass+ reservations are the best way to skip the lines and enjoy more magic at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Currently, you are allowed to make up to three FastPass+ selections at one theme park. Afterward, you may schedule more FastPass+ reservations, one at a time on a rolling basis, at an additional park. Here is the official word on Park Hopping and FastPass+ reservations.

    The tier system at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot allow you to choose 1 attraction in Tier 1 and 2 attractions in Tier 2. You must choose this arrangement before acquiring another Tier 1 FastPass+ reservation. In other words, you cannot make a reservation for a Tier 1 attraction and no Tier 2 attractions expecting you second FastPass+ attraction to be another Tier 1 selection. The system will prompt you directly to make a Tier 2 reservation. This avoids overcrowding of the Tier 1 attractions and sharing of the FastPass+ reservations.

    Disney Dad Tip: I would only book FastPass+ reservations for the second theme park when park hopping and arrive at the first theme park 45 minutes early. Why? Crowds are the lightest first thing in the morning and you can complete the most popular FastPass+ attractions with very little wait. After you finish the first theme park the second will be crowded and you will be prepared with your FastPass+ reservations.

    Steve, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort!
