    Hello. We used the reservation system to confirm the days of our trip. So can’t use fast pass in advance anymore, but what about day of inside the park to ensure we can get on what we want to? Thank you!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Kristin!

    I am so happy to hear that you were able to get Park Pass reservations for your trip!  You are one step closer to returning to the magic.  How exciting!

    In July, I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to Walt Disney World with my family not long after the parks began their phased reopening.  FastPass+ reservations were not available during our visit and I found we were still able to enjoy all of the attractions that were important to us!  In fact, we really had time to enjoy EVERY attraction during our trip!  I loved being more spontaneous in the parks and not watching the clock for our next reservation.

    I have a few tips and tricks to make sure you get to experience some of the most popular attractions.  Let's start with the big one, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance!  If a visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios must include joining the Resistance to take on the First Order, have your My Disney Experience mobile app ready at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. to get your spot in the virtual queue.  I have had more success joining the virtual queue using my phone data than when connected to WIFI.  Apparently WIFI is powered by the dark side!

    While in Hollywood, do as the stars do and become a part of the magic on Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway!  This is the newest attraction at Walt Disney World and many Guests are experiencing it for the first time.  I found that the line is longest right away in the morning, so you may save time in line by waiting to jump onboard this train later in the day.

    For the remainder of your park days, I would recommend you prioritize the attractions that are a "must do" during your visit and head to those early in the day.  Don't forget to use your My Disney Experience mobile app to check wait times and target your favorite attractions when wait times are the lowest.  Also, take advantage of mobile food ordering so you don't spend any precious vacation time waiting in line for your quick service meals and snacks!

    Have fun collecting memories during your visit, Kristin!  Be sure to stop by planDisney if you have any other questions as your vacation countdown shrinks!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
