    Hi! We have a trip coming up and we are linked with our friends and family in our Disney account. My family checks in a day earlier than our other members but our FP booking dates say the same thing. Why is this and are they actually different days?

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melissa!

    Although there are many benefits to being a Guest at an official Walt Disney World Resort hotel, I think one of the best benefits is the ability to book your FastPass+ experiences up to 60 days in advance of your visit. Additionally, you’re able to schedule those FastPasses for the entire length of your stay (up to 10 days) 60 days from your check-in date. If you have two parties linked on the same reservation, that is the only reason I could think your FastPass booking dates would be the same. I would suggest double-checking your reservation dates to make sure they are correct for both parties. Should you need to change or modify your reservation, you may be able to do that online. Just log into your My Disney Experience account and click “My Plans.” If you have the option to modify online, you’ll see a blue button that says “Modify.” Otherwise, you’ll need to call (407) 934-7639 to speak with a Cast Member who can assist you.

    Once you’ve determined that your check-in dates are correct, you’ll be ready to begin planning your FastPass+ experiences. I would recommend starting with those hard-to-get reservations (like Slinky Dog Dash at Disney’s Hollywood Studios or Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park) at the END of your trip and then work your way back to your first day. If you don’t see availability for those coveted attractions, don’t fret! You can continue to modify or cancel your FastPass+ experiences up to the day of your Theme Park visit. Keep in mind that availability is always subject to change, so it’s always best to try to book those experiences as soon as possible. That said, I have occasionally been able to get a last-minute FastPass for an attraction when someone else has decided to cancel theirs closer to our arrival date.
    Please let us know if there’s anything else we can help with, Melissa! Best of luck in getting all of the FastPass+ experiences you’re hoping for.
