    What rides are restricted for fast pass reservations? i have seen before that the most popular rides cant be booked for the same day. is this true?

    Hi Nicola,

    The FastPass+ service is such a wonderful time saver; you'll feel like true Disney royalty as you skip the standby lines!

    There are many attractions as well as shows and character experiences that are eligible for the FastPass+ service. Since Disney Resort hotel Guests are able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days before they check-in and Guests who are staying elsewhere may make selections 30 days ahead of time, you are correct that some of the more popular attractions may not have any FastPass+ availability when you arrive. That's why I'd highly recommend purchasing your theme park tickets ahead of time and linking them to your My Disney Experience account so that you can make FastPass+ selections ahead of time, too!

    Hakuna Matata - no worries, though, if you can't find FastPass+ availability for an attraction you'd really love to experience. First, just keep checking as you never know when other Guests will cancel their selections or additional FastPass+ times will become available. Even if all that fails, you may still use the standby line to experience any attraction you'd like. Many queues are quite immersive with interesting things to look at, and some even offer interactive elements that help your wait to fly by.

    Did you know, too, that once you've enjoyed the three FastPass+ selections per day that you planned ahead of time, you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to make additional selections, one at a time, until the theme parks close? I'd definitely encourage you to maximize this wonderful service!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicola. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
