    Is there a trick to Fast Pass? I have never used it before. Is it best to be there at the beginning, or is it really busy them? I was thinking it might be better to get there near the end, as some people would have already used it. Is there a 'trick'?

    Hi Karen,

    You can make FastPass+ reservations in advance - 60 days in advance if you are staying on property and 30 days in advance if you are staying off property. You can also make them using the My Disney Experience app, which you can use in the parks also.

    Once you are done using your initial three FastPass + allocations, you can get another one in the parks. However, those are subject to availability. Since the lines tend to be longer as the day goes on, I'd recommend that you wait in standby lines in the morning and then make FastPass+ allocations for after lunch.

    I hope that helps! Have a great vacation!
