    Hi! How much time should I plan for in between FP selections? Also, are FP selections only for 1 park/day or, since we have hopper pass, can we schedule 1 for Epcot & the rest for MK? How many rides do you think you can squeeze in to magic hour? Tha

    Hi Kendale,

    April. What a wonderful time of the year to visit Walt Disney World Resort.

    FastPass+ is the best thing since sliced bread. You may select up to three, per day, in advance, from a single theme park, either online at My Disney Experience, or from the My Disney Experience mobile app. Once you use those three initial picks, you may select additional ones in person at a FastPass+ kiosk, at the same theme park or a different one. Also, your selections need to be at least one hour from each other, but you do have a one hour window to use the FastPass+.

    Extra Magic Hours allows resort guests to enter a park up to one hour before regular park hours, or up to two hours after regular park hours, and access selected attractions with little or no wait. Many guests take advantage of the morning ones by arriving at the theme park about 30 minutes before opening. How many attractions you may visit, will depend on how fast you can move between them, but I would say no more than three. We prefer evening Extra Magic Hours in general, and average about 20 minutes per attraction. One evening, we did ride Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, three times in a row, before we realized that hyperspace travel is too intense to do too often.

    If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to come back. May the Force be with you.
