    We are start our park fun at DW on the 31st. We are going to all 4 parks. I have FP set up. What are the chances of getting FP for some of the rides that are “sold out?” I’ve heard that DW releases FS the day of. Is there a time they are released?

    Hi, Jillian!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your Walt Disney World Vacation is almost here!  It sounds like you have been getting ready for your trip by setting up your FastPass+ selections.  You will love how FastPass+ helps you to experience many popular attractions with very little wait time.

    Did you know that once you have redeemed your three FastPass+ selections each day, you may make an additional FastPass+ selection?  Additional FastPass+ selections can be made, one at a time, either at one of the many FastPass+ kiosks conveniently located throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks or using your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    While Walt Disney World does not release additional FastPass+ availability for an attraction on a particular day, sometimes guests may change their plans.  If guests cancel their FastPass+ for an attraction, it may open up availability for another guest to book a FastPass+ at that time, so it never hurts to keep checking on availability using your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    If you are unable to secure FastPass+ for an attraction that tends to have a long wait time, I would suggest arriving at the park early, at least 30 minutes prior to park opening.  Then, at rope drop, head directly to that attraction.  Crowds tend to be at their lowest first thing in the morning, so you can often experience several attractions with very little wait time if you are willing to start your theme park fun bright and early.

    Let me know if I can help you with anything else as you get ready for your Walt Disney World vacation.  Have a magical day!
