    Hello, we are staying offsite and will start the fast past reservation 30 days out. Question? What time of day can you start making the reservations? Midnight day of or ? We live in the PNW. Thank you Debbie

    Hi Debbie,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad you stopped by with your question.

    Planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is so exciting! I'm really glad to hear that you're in the know about making FastPass+ selections.  The window for FastPasses has changed in recent years and now opens up at 7 am Mickey time here in Florida, so grab a cup of coffee, add a giant scoop of pixie dust and go for it! I recommend getting set up a bit early in case you have any technical difficulties. There's nothing worse than going in for some FastPasses and having your computer fail on you.  Please remember that since you're not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will have to make reservations for each day separately at the 30 day mark.

    In case you don't get the attractions that you want, don't despair! Keep trying, as I've noticed that FastPasses for even the most popular attractions will sometimes appear in the weeks leading up to and even the day of my visit.

    Debbie, I hope your planning goes swimmingly for your upcoming vacation!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
