    Recently I have heard from different sources, including a Disney cast member, that for a split stay, you can no longer book fastpasses 60 days in advance for your entire stay (in other words it's 60 days in advance of each stay). Is this true?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Beth. It's our pleasure to help you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

     I just love split-stays. There are so many incredible Disney Resort hotels to choose from, and split-stays make it possible to enjoy two (or more!) during a single vacation! One of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is early access to FastPass+ planning. You heard correctly about the FastPass+ booking windows for split-stays; you can select your FastPass+ experiences 60-days prior to your check-in date for the first stay, and then again at the 60-day mark for your second check-in date. Guests who have a split-stay planned still have the advantage of early availability compared to Guests not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, but it does require you to keep track of two important dates. During my most recent split-stay, I was able to make FastPass+ reservations for the entire length of my vacation, but I suspect that was just a pixie-dusted glitch. My best advice is to be prepared to have two FastPass+ booking dates. If you're magically able to make all your FastPass+ selections for the entirety of your vacation, fabulous! If you're not able to, you'll be ready for that second date. 

     One thing is for sure - you are going to have a magical stay at the Walt Disney World Resort this Fall! I hope you'll consider purchasing tickets for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It's a spooktacular celebration that you won't want to miss!

     I hope this was helpful, Beth. Please visit us again soon!
