Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    If most of us will be arriving on a Tuesday and staying through Monday, but some will arrive on Friday, can I make FP+ choices for the Friday arrivals at 60 days prior to my check-in date (i.e., prior to their 60-day check-in date) if we are linked in MDE?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michael!

    It really is my opinion that half the fun of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is in the planning. You're just a few weeks away from being able to make your advanced dining reservations, so I'm sure that all of your plans are starting to come together and you're also thinking about what FastPass+ selections you're going to make. Being able to make those selections up to 60 days in advance is probably my favorite benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel!

    Because it is a perk for Resort Hotel guests, the ability to make early FastPass+ selections is tied to the party's check-in date, so you won't be able to book them for your family arriving on the Friday after you until 60 days before their arrival. I assume you'll be trying to get FastPass+ times so that everyone can ride together, and there are a few different ways that you can make that happen. Remember that each FastPass+ is valid for a period of one hour, so even if you aren't able to get some that start at the same time, as long as times overlap you'll be able to ride together. There's no need to worry if you aren't able to get times to ride together right away because guests are changing their plans every single day. 60 days is a lot of time to decide you'd rather ride Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain instead of DINOSAUR at Disney's Animal Kingdom, so keep checking back to see if you can modify your FastPass+ selection for a time that works better for you. You can do this all the way up to and including the days of your vacation, so you never know what you might find!

    I hope this answers your question, Michael, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
