    What are the times that extra fast passes are released for same day use?

    Welcome Ginger!  Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Since the FastPass+ system was introduced several years ago, there has been much speculation about whether or not any FastPass+ reservations are "held back" for day guests, since not everyone has the ability or interest in making FastPass+ reservations 30 or 60 days in advance.  I myself have noticed FastPass+ availability for any given attraction varies quite a bit from day to day and even minute by minute.  Sometimes a reservation for a popular attraction suddenly becomes available.
    However, because Disney does not release this type of information about their operations, there is no official word about when, or even if, additional FastPass+ reservations are released for same day use.  In my experience, there does not appear to be an across-the-board release time for all Theme Parks or all attractions

    Because FastPass+ availability does seem to fluctuate, I recommend checking the My Disney Experience mobile app often throughout your day, and/or visiting the in-park FastPass+ kiosks.  I usually schedule my 3 advance FastPass+ reservations so I have used the last one by late morning or early afternoon so I can maximize the opportunity to obtain additional FastPass+ reservations.  I have had success in securing FastPass+ reservations for popular attractions just by checking the app frequently.

    Ginger, if you have additional questions about FastPass+ or any other questions about planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, please come back to the Moms panel again any time.

    Enjoy your visit!
