    I could only reserve late pm passes for my three favorite attractions, and now online it shows that ALL fast passes are gone for the day. How do I spend my full day at MK when I am unable to get any fast passes until 5:55pm that night? Should I cancel?

    Hi Nikki! Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to see your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is a little over a month away!

    It sounds like you and I are like minded with regards to our vacation planning. I typically try to make my FastPass+ selections for early in the morning. However, there have been occasions when my FastPass+ selections were at times similar to yours and I still had a magical day! The best part is the spontaneity. In fact, on our last trip to Walt Disney World Resort, we enjoyed one of the best days we have ever had at Magic Kingdom park and our FastPass+ selections started around 6:00 pm. 

    We spent the day enjoying attractions we sometimes skip. We watched the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade while enjoying a tasty treat on Main Street, U.S.A. and we took oodles of pictures throughout the park. We enjoyed Character Experiences, shared a great meal and had the best time enjoying each other and all that Magic Kingdom park has to offer. We had no itinerary, no must do list. We walked into Magic Kingdom park and savored every moment. In many ways, it was like our first trip there. We stopped and noticed things we hadn't in the past. It was absolutely magical. As we moved closer to our FastPass+ selection time, we gravitated toward the attraction and then enjoyed each of our FastPass+ selections. It was a fantastic day filled with magical and spontaneous moments that warmed my heart! 

    Now, all of the above being stated, Guests' plans can change. I encourage you to check your My Disney Experience account often as you never know when an earlier time might open up. If you can grab earlier times, great. If not, you will still be at Magic Kingdom park and I can't think of a better way to spend a day!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you need any other information as you plan your practically perfect in every way visit to Magic Kingdom park!
