    I have stayed on site twice, but due to $ thinking off site next. Are there any popular FP+ reservations left at the 30 day mark? Are you still allowed to make dining reservations 180 days out? Can you use the My Disney Experience App? Tks so much

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lanny!

    I am so happy to help you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Our family has stayed at both Walt Disney World Resort hotels and at other hotels in the area. While there is definitely an advantage to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, day Guests to Walt Disney World Resort are also able to plan and enjoy the magic at all of the parks. Advanced Dining Reservations are open to all guests 180 days in advance and FastPass+ reservations are available 30 days in advance. With both of these reservations, when your window opens it will be for a specific day, rather than the duration of your trip. So if you are interested in planning as early as possible, you will need to make reservations for your trip over multiple days, as your window opens for each day of your trip.

    In my experience, I have been able to still make FastPass+ reservations for things my family enjoys. However, availability for very popular attractions, such as Meet Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall and Seven Dwarves Mine Train, and for fireworks and parade viewing can be extremely limited at the 30-day point. If you are interested in these attractions and events, I recommend booking your FastPass+ reservations as soon as possible!

    You will definitely be able to take advantage of the My Disney Experience mobile app. You will be able to see your tickets, FastPass+ reservations, dining reservations, theme park maps and more. I love to use it during our trip to keep an eye on attraction wait times so we can maximize our days. Having all of that information at my fingertips makes my life so much simpler, which is what vacation is all about!

    Let us know if you have any other questions! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
