    At what time can you start picking your fastpasses? I know it is 60 days out but does it start at midnight or 7am eastern time? Does the Halloween Party usually start in September? Thank you!

    Hi Susan,

    I can tell you definitely that FastPass+ reservations open at 7 a.m. Eastern time; just yesterday, I was poised at 6:59 a.m. to grab FastPass+ spots for the new Pandora -- The World of Avatar attractions at Animal Kingdom during opening weekend in May. (I was successful, by the way. YAY!)

    FastPass+ reservations can be made 60 days in advance for those with Walt Disney World resort reservations, 30 days in advance for other guests.

    In answer to your other questions: the first Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party of the year normally takes place the first week in September, right after Labor Day. I expect that schedule will be announced any day now. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the news.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Susan. Please let us know if we can assist in any other way as you plan your fall vacation. We're happy to help. Enjoy!
