    We are planning a trip in January but are only staying 2 nights at Disney but are buying 5 day passes. Can we only make fast pass reservations 60 days out for the night we are on site and 30 days for off site? Thanks!!!

    Hi Carol,

    A visit to the most magical place on earth in January definitely sounds like a great way to kick off a wonderful year!

    If you'll be staying at a Disney Resort hotel for two nights, I'm happy to let you know that you'll be able to make FastPass+ selections for your arrival day, your second day, AND your check-out day 60 days before your arrival. For the remaining two days on your tickets, you'll be able to make those selections 30 days before each of your theme park days. The FastPass+ selection window opens at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time each day, so you'll want to log on as early as possible to find the most availability. Here's a tip for you: for those difficult-to-find FastPass+ selections, like Avatar Flight of Passage or Slinky Dog Dash, start booking your selections on your last available day and then work your way back earlier in your trip. While Guests who arrive a few days before you may have already grabbed those hot FastPass+ selections before your window opens, checking a few days out first should offer you more options!

    Did you know that once you've enjoyed the three FastPass+ selections that you made ahead of time, you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to make additional selections, one at a time, throughout the day? In fact, as soon as you've entered the FastPass+ queue on your last selection, you are eligible to make your next one!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Carol, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
