    Planning a trip in August/Star Wars land. We are off property, meaning we get fast passes 30 days in advance. Does Disney keep some open time slots at this 30 day mark OR is there a potential no time slots will be available IF resort guests book them?

    Hi, Paula!

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks so much for sending us your question!

    You are going to have an absolutely magical time at Walt Disney World. With the addition of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, an All-New Land to Disney's Hollywood Studios, your trip is going to be truly out of this world!

    Guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel enjoy the benefit of being able to make their FastPass+ plans 60 days prior to arrival; however, that does not mean that you won't be able to make some absolutely fabulous FastPass+ plans when your 30 day window opens. 

    Once a year, I travel to Walt Disney World with my high school seniors, and we are only able to make our FastPass+ plans 30 days prior to arrival. That FastPass+ window opens at 7:00 AM Eastern Time, so be sure to have your My Disney Experience account or your My Disney Experience mobile app open just a few minutes prior to this. If one of the more popular FastPass+ options is available at that time, select it. You can fill in the additional two FastPass+ reservations next.

    While FastPass+ openings are not held in reserve for the 30 day window, Guests change their travel and touring plans often. This means that even though a FastPass+ might not be available on your first attempt, you may be able to secure one as you get closer to your departure date. 

    Be sure to use that My Disney Experience mobile app to keep an eye on wait times, too. Frequently, a particularly popular attraction's wait time will drop, so use that app and the electronic screens located throughout the parks to see your best options at that time. It's a great way to add even more experiences into an already fun-filled day!
