    Hi, we are visiting WDW in April, and staying at the Swan & Dolphin Hotels. I we are staying at a non-Disney property that we can only make Fastpass+ reservations 30 days prior to arrival ? Does this rule out reserving the top attractions

    Hi John,
    Thanks for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad to see that you're planning ahead and taking advantage of FastPass+ selections well before the start of your vacation. I don't think all the top attractions will be completely booked at the 30 day mark and if you don't happen to get the attractions and experiences you really want, choose some alternates and keep trying! One of the most valuable things you can do in planning your Walt Disney World vacation can be persistence, especially for high interest activities and tough to get FastPass+ selections. That said, you may want to be prepared at midnight eastern time for the FastPass+ reservations window to open on the 30 day mark to give yourself the best chance possible for your desired selections.

    Good luck and happy planning!!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
