    Hello, We are planning a trip in over spring break. The parks will be at maximum capacity and we intend to park hop. If we are going to Animal Kingdom in the morning and Hollywood Studios in the late afternoon/eve, which park should I reserve fastpasses?

    Hello there, Teresa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort over spring break!

    My family loves to utilize FastPass+ service in order to experience several of our favorite attractions with little to no wait. Although everyone has a different strategy when it comes to booking FastPass+ selections, I don't usually book mine for first thing in the morning because I have always found the standby lines to be shorter at that time of day. When park hopping, I prefer to book my family's FastPass+ selections for the second park we will be visiting especially if we can arrive to our first theme park by park opening. Based on my own personal experience, I recommend booking your FastPass+ selections for Disney's Hollywood Studios. With that being said, I would suggest arriving to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park at least 30 - 45 minutes prior to park opening and head straight to Pandora - The World of Avatar once they allow Guests to enter the theme park.

    All Guests can begin booking FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance. If you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can begin booking your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to check-in for your entire length of stay. Before booking FastPass+ selections, you will need to purchase theme park admission and link in your Disney account. 

    I hope this information is helpful in making the best decision for your family, Teresa. Let us know if you have any new questions in the days leading up to your vacation. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Happy Booking,
