    If I schedule one fast pass as soon as the park opens when would you schedule the 2nd and 3rd?

    Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    There are quite possibly as many FastPass+ strategies among Walt Disney World theme park fans as there are sneakers skipping down Main Street U.S.A. to Cinderella Castle.

    My own personal FastPass+ approach is to make my FastPass+ selections as early in the morning and as close together in time as possible. The FastPass+ selection process will guide you to avoid booking a FastPass+ reservation that overlaps with a current FastPass+ time. So I typically choose the very next available time I can.

    In my experience, if I arrive at the start of each FastPass+ to time  enjoy the attraction, I still have plenty of time before the start of the next FastPass+ time. By using my FastPass+ selections early, I'm able to make another FastPass+ selection to enjoy.

    The one variation I might take on my personal FastPass+ approach is if I want to select a FastPass for one of the nighttime spectaculars such as IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth or Rivers of Light.

    Amanda, be sure to use the cool and convenient My Disney Experience mobile app to help you manage your everyday Disney, including your FastPass+ selections and plans.

    Enjoy your Disney!
