    We were unable to get FP+ reservations for meeting Anna and Elsa, even though I was online as soon as possible. We are 60 days out and have a resort package. Will more open up at the 30 day mark? If we arrive for EMH is the wait bad? Thanks!

    Hello, Mary. I'm so sorry that you weren't able to get FastPass+ reservations for Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall, but don't let that freeze your heart! Keep checking back because if someone cancels their FastPass+ selection you can grab it. Here are a couple other tips that might help you get the FastPass+ that you need:

    *Try lowering your party size. Instead of searching for a FastPass+ reservation for a party of 2, try twice for parties of 1 to see if you can slip in through the cracks and find overlapping FastPass+ times.

    *Arrive to the parks early before rope drop and head straight over to Princess Fairytale Hall. You may still have to wait 20 minutes or so, but it's much better than having to wait 120 minutes!

    *Make an early dining reservation for breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table, Be Our Guest, or The Crystal Palace. If you finish your meal before park opening you've got a good chance at being near the front of the line at Princess Fairytale Hall.

    *I didn't see what dates you are visiting, but during special events like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party attraction wait times are very low. Some are even walk-on. Last year during the Christmas party I waited maybe 15 minutes in the standby line for Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall.

    The popularity of Extra Magic Hours has grown over the years, so I'm going to hazard a guess that during Extra Magic Hours the standby lines will still be decently long. If you can arrive early and be one of the first through the park gates for Extra Magic Hours that will help. It is first come, first served with the FastPass+ system, and the popular ones go fast.

    I have my fingers crossed for you. If you need anything else let us know. Have a magical vacation!
