    I will be scheduling our DW FP+ soon, but I’m confused about it. We will be in the parks for 5 days. Can I plan all 3 of our FP+ for every day or is it only one day at a time that I can use them? Thanks, Robin

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Robin!

    The quick answer to your question is: it depends where you're staying. If you're going to be a guest at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, then you get the benefit of being able to book your FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your arrival for the length of your stay. That means that you can plan all three of your daily FastPass+ selections for each day of your trip 60 days before the day you arrive. If you have tickets but you are staying somewhere else off-site, you can make your FastPass+ selections one day at a time 30 days in advance of each day of your trip. For example, if you're staying for five days and choose to make your FastPass+ selections on the first day they become available for you, you will book them over a period of five days, 30 days in advance of each day you have tickets for. 

    Since you're here, let's chat about some of my favorite FastPass+ tips! If there's a day on my vacation where I really want to see and do everything, I'll plan on getting to my favorite theme park first thing in the morning, about 45 minutes to an hour before it opens for the day. I'll use that early morning time to hit some of my favorite attractions, like Space Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Magic Kingdom Park, and then I'll book my FastPass+ selections for the later morning and right before lunchtime, which is when most guests are arriving for the day. Then I can take a nice break for lunch and browse My Disney Experience for another FastPass+!

    I hope this answers your question, Robin, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
