    Should I select my fast passes before dining reservations? I can make reservations 180 days in advance but need to wait for fast pass. I don't want the reservations to interfere with my fastpass options if they end up being the same times. Thoughts?

    Hey, Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. When I plan my trips to my second home at Walt Disney World Resort I always schedule my dining reservations first.

    Some of these reservations are difficult to make because the restaurant is in such demand. Examples are breakfast before Magic Kingdom Park opens at Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella's Royal Table. Once the dining reservations are made, we then determine which theme park we will attend so we decrease travel time and finally the FastPass+ reservations are selected. I have always been successful with this technique and you will be also.

    Disney Dad Tip: Use the My Disney Experience and the My Disney Experience Mobile App regularly. This is where you can create an itinerary, schedule FastPass+ (free to everyone) and dining reservations, see showtimes and wait times, and even "Get Directions" between locations.

    Jennifer, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
