    Hello. I am visiting the parks for 5 days, but only staying on property 2 of those nights. Will I be given the 10 day grace period when booking my dining reservations and fast passes? Will I be able to book my fast passes 60 days in advance?

    Hi Mark!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The windows for booking Advanced Dining Reservations and FastPass+ can be overwhelming when planning a trip so this is a great question!

    I'm assuming that you are staying on property first and then moving off property, so you are trying to understand if it will extend beyond your two day reservation to encompass your 5 day ticket. For your Advanced Dining Reservations you are able to book 180 days out from your check in and through the length of your stay on Walt Disney World property. This means 180 days from your check-in you'll be able to book for your first day, second and third day (check-out day). For the remaining days you'll need to book at the 180 day window for each. If you have difficulty online, you can always call to book dining at 407-WDW-DINE.

    For your FastPass+ reservations, it depends on how you booked your reservation. If it is a room only reservation that you added a ticket to, then the system will allow you to book for length of tickets. If you booked it as a package, it will only recognize the length of hotel stay. So even though your only staying on property for the first two nights of your stay, if you have a 5 day park hopper attached to a room only reservation, when your 60 day reservation opens up you'll be able to book for 5 days. If it is part of a package, it will only allow you to book for the 3 days/2 nights associated with it. If you are unsure what you booked I recommend calling 407-939-1936. If you need further clarification on how the system works and what it will allow you to book I'd call the Internet Help Line at 407-939-4357.

    I hope this helps clear things up for you! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
