    We are planning a trip to Disney (8 day park hopper) in August with friends who have a condo to use. If we book a few nights at a DGN hotel would we be able to take advantage of the 60 day FP for the full trip, or would that make planning difficult?

    Hi Leah,

    How fun that you're planning a visit to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" with some friends! The only thing better than a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is when you can experience the fun with fellow Mouseketeers. Plus, an 8-day Park Hopper Option ticket sounds fantastic! You'll be able to enjoy TONS of theme park magic.

    In order to take advantage of making FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance, you'll need to have a reservation at a Disney Resort hotel, a Disney Springs area hotel, the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, or the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. While Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotels offer some amenities like an on-site Guest Services desk to help with any Disney planning as well as transportation to and from the theme parks, they don't currently allow Guests to make FastPass+ selections until 30 days beforehand. If you would like to make reservations for part of your stay at a location that offers 60-day FastPass+ selections, you'll be able to choose three attractions or experiences per day for every day that you're staying at an eligible location. Do keep in mind, though, that this includes your check-in and check-out days, so if you book a 3-night stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you'll enjoy that early FastPass+ booking window for four days of your trip. The further out you can look, the more flexibility and availability you'll enjoy. Slinky Dog Dash and Avatar Flight of Passage FastPass+ times, for example, can be tricky to find, but if you're able to look several days into a Disney Resort hotel stay, that should help you find a FastPass+ for even the more popular attractions!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question, Leah, and please come see us again with any other questions you may have! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation this summer!
