    I understand if you're at the parks at "rope drop" you can sometimes hit a couple of popular attractions before the crowds get there. I can make FP+ selections this weekend for our trip in July. How should I let this determine my selections and

    Hi James,

    Rope drop is one of the best times to visit your very favorite attraction in a theme park. One great tip is to book your FastPass+ selections for three of your four favorite attractions, but be sure to visit the most popular attraction at rope drop. You'll be able to start your day with one of the best experiences in the park, and you'll still have all of your FastPass+ selections utilized for the other amazing adventures. Or, you can do what our family does, and use a FastPass+ selection for your favorite attraction AND visit that attraction at rope drop. Our family loves Toy Story Mania in Disney's Hollywood Studios, so we'll visit it at rope drop, and come back later during our FastPass+ time allotment to do it again. There are so many possibilities. 

    I hope this answered your question, James. If you have any other questions before your vacation, please feel free to ask us at any time. We're always here to help.

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
