    We are staying offsite for 12 days starting June 25. We have 8 people. Can you tell me exactly how to book fast passes? Is it one day at a time? I have never stayed offsite so this process is new to me. We have age range from 70 to 2. Any tips please.

    Hi there, Kim! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for reaching out and asking another wonderful Walt Disney World Resort question!

    I always recommend taking the time to make FastPass+ reservations prior to your arrival to Walt Disney World Resort but this is particularly true for larger parties such as your own! FastPass+ reservations allow you to experience an attraction more quickly than waiting in the conventional queue line and helps you experience more fun during your vacation. 

    Creating your FastPass+ reservations is a relatively similar process regardless of where you are staying during your vacation but there are a few key differences between Disney Resort hotel Guests and off-site hotel Guests. 

    First, offsite hotel Guests will be able to reserve their FastPass+ experiences 30 days prior to their arrival instead of 60 days prior to arrival for Disney Resort hotel Guests. Secondly, you will need to reserve your FastPass+ experiences for each day of your trip separately. For example, you will need to make your FastPass+ reservations for June 26th on May 26th, your FastPass+ reservations for June 27th on May 27th, and so on. I would recommend setting an alarm for each day you need to hop onto My Disney Experience and reserve your FastPass+ experiences. Just a reminder, FastPass+ reservations open up at 7:00 am US Eastern Standard Time! 

    Hopefully, this information will assist you in planning for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort family vacation!
