    Hi! We just recently purchased tickets to surprise my DD for 16th BDay (last minute thought). Avatar fast passes are gone as expected. Does Disney ever release additional fast passes closer to the dates?

    Hi Michelle! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Happy Birthday to your daughter! I wish I could see the look on her face when you reveal the secret Walt Disney World Resort tickets ... what a special surprise!

    I can tell you know your way around the theme parks and know which attractions are the most popular and typically have FastPass+ selections all booked far advance. On my most recent visits, I have been able to get FastPass+ times for Frozen Ever After and Soarin' when I was in the theme parks! That used to be impossible, but with the convenience of the My Disney Experience mobile app, Guests are able to update and change plans easily. I recommend downloading the app on your phone and checking each day up to your visit, even the day you are there, to see if a FastPass+ time opens up for your family. I have my fingers crossed for you!

    If you haven't yet experienced Avatar Flight of Passage, I can tell you that it is worth the Stand By wait if you can't get FastPass+! Last week, I was exiting this attraction and heard the family behind me say that they would wait in line to ride it again. It truly is that spectacular! My suggestion is to get to the theme park extra early, before opening, and try to be among the first in the theme park to ride the attraction before the lines get too long. Then, head over to Na'vi River Journey where lines should still be manageable, as well.

    I hope your family has the BEST time celebrating your daughter's milestone birthday, Michelle! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
