    Just when I thought I have done all my research, my husband threw me a curveball; hope you can help! With regard to FastPass+, what should we do if we get to a ride where we have a FP+ reserved, but the standby line is short? I think we should still go a

    Hello, Monica,

    In my family a combination of a FastPass+ reservation and a short stand-by lines means we will enjoy that attraction at least two times in a row!  If you arrive with plenty of time still on your FastPass+, I'd go through stand-by first then come back and use your FastPass+ if you'd like to visit the attraction a second time.  Aside from the fun of doing something twice, you may also see new things in the queue as there are sometimes two different ones at some of the attractions. 

    If you think you will only do the attraction once, I'd go ahead and use your FastPass+ because once you've use your allotment for the day, you can stop by a FastPass+ Kiosk to see if there is any availability to add an additional FassPass+ to your day.  There are no guarantees, but it is a great surprise when you can. 

    If you have any further questions, please let us know!  We are happy to help.  -Kara
