    We are visiting Disney World in April for the first time in several years. Since there’s no Fast Pass available right now, what’s the best plan for popular rides? Thanks

    Hello there, Jennifer! Welcome to the wonderful world of planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and asking your Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    With the reopening of Walt Disney World Resort, there have been some updated policies and modified experiences in place to make sure each and every Guest remains safe during their visits. During your upcoming visit, you can expect such changes as enhanced cleaning procedures, temporary adjustments to promote physical distancing, and modified experiences to reduce contact. In addition, the FastPass+ service has been suspended for the time being during the initial stages of reopening. 

    If there are popular attractions you and your family would like to experience, I would recommend arriving at the theme parks as soon as they open and head towards your top choices as soon as possible. This is actually the strategy my family and I use during our own visits even when FastPass+ service is available. Typically, this allows us to experience at least a couple of the more popular attractions prior to the park becoming too busy. After we get in some morning fun, we also head back to our Disney Resort hotel for a quick nap and rest before our evening adventures!

    Since you have not visited in several years, you may also want to look through the list of attractions to identify which ones are “must-dos”! From here, you can make a list of your own and create a plan of which attractions you want to experience first each morning. You are definitely going to want to make a point of visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios during your upcoming trip due to the mass amount of change this particular park has undergone recently! In addition to the amazingly immersive Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, there is also the brand-new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway based on the recent Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts! 

    I hope you have a practically perfect vacation to Walt Disney World Resort next month! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
