How to get difficult FastPass+ reservations

(Article last updated: April 26, 2017)

Sometimes even after you've done all of the research for your Disney World trip and you feel super well prepared, you come up empty on a couple of FastPass+ reservations that you had hoped to get.

It often happens to even the best planners. Here are some strategies to help get the most difficult FastPass+ at Disney World.

Which FastPass+ reservations are hard to get?

Most FastPass+ reservations aren't that hard to get, but you will likely run into the most issues with Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom, Frozen Ever After at Epcot, and both of the Pandora attractions (Na'vi River Journey and Flight of Passage) at Animal Kingdom.

Beyond that, you probably won't have any trouble getting any FastPass+ reservations, although you may not end up with your ideal times for a few other FastPass+ reservations.

For more details on which FastPass+ reservations are available and recommended, check out the touring plans and FastPass suggestions for all 4 parks.

Strategies you can try to get difficult FastPass+

Book FastPass+ reservations 60 days beforehand

Since off-site guests book FastPass+ reservations 30 days beforehand, this strategy is just for on-site guests.

Here's what you can do:

  • Get online just before 7 a.m. eastern time, log out of your account, and then log in fresh.
  • At 7 a.m. eastern time, the FastPass+ reservations for your whole trip will become available to book.
  • Do not make your FastPass+ reservations in chronological order; make them in order of difficulty (this is the same suggestion for people making dining reservations). That means you'll likely jump to your difficult FastPass+ reservations first to make those reservations before all others. You can make just 1 FastPass+ reservation at a park and then come back later to book the other 2, less difficult attractions.
  • The end of your trip will have better chances of availability than the beginning.

Book FastPass+ reservation for 1 person and then add others

Sometimes when you're searching for FastPass+ availability, the My Disney Experience system will tell you that it can't find something for your whole group but if you just search for 1 person, it will show up, and then you can try to add other people from your group.

You can do this on the phone app or computer. Here's how it works from a computer:

You will begin by going into the FastPass+ screens and make a FastPass+ reservation for 1 person in your group. Then, you need to go back in and try to add more people to it.

Do that by selecting the "Change Party" option on your FastPass+ reservation...

Then choose who you'd like to add to the reservation...

If there is availability, you'll be asked to confirm...

Check for FastPass+ reservations openings

People cancel FastPass+ reservations all the time, so it's good to check a day or two beforehand to see if anything has become available.

Make use of the My Disney Experience phone app during your trip to check for restaurant reservations or FastPass+ reservations that you weren't able to get beforehand.

Another thing to watch for is park hours being extended, therefore providing new FastPass+ openings. Disney publishes park hours updates all the time. If those park hours are updated so that the parks (happens a lot at Magic Kingdom) are open for more hours, then more FastPass+ reservations will pop up for those dates a few days after the park hours updates are published.

Sign up for alerts on the monthly dashboard for when you'll be traveling and you'll get an email immediately after park hours are updated so you'll know when this happens.

What if you never get the difficult FastPass+ reservations?

Sometimes - especially during peak travel times - you'll try all of the strategies above and STILL find yourself empty-handed on a couple of things. Here are some ideas for how to handle that:

  • Show up to the park early (30-45 minutes before park opening) which will put you at the front of the line to go into the park and head straight there after the park opens
  • Take advantage of a morning Extra Magic Hour and visit that attraction first
  • Make an early dining reservation in the park, finish eating before the park opens and make your way there first
  • Visit the attractions during a party. Most parties (like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party) have much shorter lines during the party so you could visit attractions during that time. Notes: 1.) some parties are quite busy and 2.) popular attractions will still have longer lines than less popular attractions but usually shorter than during regular park hours.
  • Remember that there's a single rider option available on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest, and Test Track

I’m so thankful for your post! I was freaking out this morning trying to book FP+ for our party of 6. All the times they gave me were TERRIBLE. Then I Googled how to get difficult FP+ and this post popped up. THANK YOU! You saved me from some broken heart kids.

stella

you did this tip and it worked? good to know thanks! We have 6 going in Sept and I am freaking out about getting them also. So you got it for 1 and then just added on more, right?

Katy P

Just returned from WDW and wanted to thank you for your tips and ad one more! The fastpass copying feature you suggest did not work for us since fastpass would tell us that there were not enough slots available to copy…but I managed to get a fastpass reservation for Elsa and Anna two days in advance for myself and my 4 y.o. daughter by booking a single fastpass for each of us with overlapping time slots. For myself I booked 5:40-6:40pm and for my daughter I booked 6:20-7:20 – this left us a 20 minute window to get in – and we were able to bring my 2 y.o. in with us since she does not need a fastpass of her own. This enabled the three of us to jump a line with a posted wait of 110 minutes. Hooray!

Becs

Hi I’m in the U.K. Just wanted to check when I can book my fast pass is it 12 midnight or 7am? Thank you

Megan

This information was very helpful! I was looking for the earliest possible time to book (ready to wake up at midnight) and found out that that is not necessary. I would like to comment on one thing that you said: “The end of your trip will have better chanced of availability than the beginning.” I realized on my last trip in December that you can actually book in order of the days you will be at each park. In other words our trip was from December 23-27. Exactly 60 days before December 23, I got online and book our fast passes to JUST the park we were going to each day. So you don’t have to wait until the last day of your trip to book your fast passes. I may have misread what you said, and if so I apologize, but just wanted to point this out just in case!

Amanda

We are going to Disneyworld in June with my kids who will be 1 and 6 at the time. If all of us want to ride something that the baby can’t, should we get all 4 of us fast passes and then do the rider swap with the older one?

Brenden

Hi
If we are booking fast pass from UK do we still have to use 7am eastern time. I think that’s 6hrs behind UK. So will be 1pm our time

Jane

Hi Brenden

It will be 12 midday U.K. Time when your FP window opens.

Jane

Nicole Howard

My husband and I were traveling to WDW by ourselves and we have had our FP+ reservations for a few months now. At the last minute, my daughter decides she would like to come 4 days before check-in. Since she is now on our reservation, I have been unable to get a FP+ for her on several of the popular rides (Toy Story, Peter Pan etc.).

What do you suggest I do? Cancel our existing FP+s and get new ones for whatever rides are available (not Toy Story, Peter Pan etc.) or go to the FP lines and see if the cast member will allow her to ride also?

Bridget

I’m trying to update/modify our fast passes but I’m not getting the modify option unless I was to delete one of our scheduled passes? I don’t see if on the page at all? Any suggestions?

Miranda

I was confused about this too. I think the website pages are different from when this post was written. You can still modify though. Click view details below the ride you are thinking of changing, then click modify, add the guests you want, click next, then you will see new times off all rides in the same category. If you don’t see what you want then just go back or close the page. Your original fast passes are still there. They don’t delete until you confirm the change. Now if you want to change all of them for another park… I don’t know if that’s possible. I can’t seem to find the way.

Kim

When making character meet-and-greet FP selections, do both the child and the accompanying adult have to have a FP? Can I just make the FP selection for my 4 year old, freeing up one of mine to use later for a rider switch situation? Or will I have to have a FP as well to be in line with a minor?

Val

Hello there, our upcoming fastpass 60 day mark coincides with the very first day of school! I can’t allot much time at 7 am that day of all days! Will I get most of what I want if I wait til my lunch break that day? I’ve done fastpass before, and it went relatively quickly, so if I have 10 minutes that morning to spare, which attractions/park should I really focus on doing first? I just don’t think I’ll have time to do all 6 days before school/work. Anna/Elsa isn’t a priority. Neither is the new Frozen ride. Thanks for your input.

Kenzie

I can make fp reservations this Saturday, can I do this at Midnight like others have said or does it have at 7am? I’m making them for my son, husband and myself. Some rides are 2-seater rides, so am I able to make a fp for my husband and son to ride something and one for me to do a meet and greet since we all wont be able to sit together on a ride. If I do this, can my son (3yrs old) accompany me to the meet and greet on my fp?

Mindy

Yes! You should skip going together as a family and just plan separate FP for you and your husband. Your son will get on 6 rides as compared to 3. And if you have one you really want to do together just explain to the cast member that your reservation didn’t sync to your husband’s or vice versa and they will likely let you on without issue. They’re quite accommodating!

Carrie

How can the son get on 6 rides with each parent booking 3 fast Pass rides for themselves?

Jason

How early time wise can I book fast pass ? Will they allow me at midnight or 1am on my 30 day mark Tonight?

Lindsay Harvey

Im wondering the same thing. I have read 12 am but also 7 am. Did you ever find out?

John Sinclair

Hello and thank you for the great information. I am looking to book a trip at the end of next June (2017). I am considering staying off site. The savings if I do that will be between $1500-$2000. Will it be that big of a deal for us to only have the 30 days out for fastpasses instead of the 60 days? We don’t care about meeting characters or dining reservations. We just want the rides. Any information or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

venkata kishore patcha

30 day is fine. don’t worry

Lindsey

Thanks for all the info! So am I right in saying that you can longer book your fastpass reservations right at midnight the day you’re allowed to start booking? We now have to wait till 7 am the day of?

Amity Taylor

Great post! I am actually getting ready to across this information which I found very interesting to read.

Jess

Logged in around 1:30 slow time (that’s an hour behind Disney time) this morning, which is the date our fast passes became available. I got EVERY fast pass I wanted including 7DMT and Toy Story Mania! I have followed your site ( along with a few others) an have found your tips so helpful! I will tell you Anna & Elsa were no longer being offered when I logged on so I believe they booked up in that 1.5 hour period before I logged on. Good luck everyone and definitely log on 60 days in advance of you are staying on site. It’s so worth it not to have to worry about any more scheduling!!!

Amy

Hi there! I have a question for you regarding FastPass+. I am an annual pass holder and have reservations at a Disney Value Resort for May 23. According to your advice and May 2016 calendar, I should be able to book Fast Pass reservations beginning March 24. However when I go to the My Disney Experience site to check the calendar, it is only showing a 30 day reservation window. Is that because I have not paid the full amount for our vacation stay? It isn’t due until we check in.

Maggie

Hi, I have the same problem. I have a passholder certificate linked to my Disney account but not an active AP until I arrive but I do have onsite room reservations. It will only show 30 days out. The other two in my party have purchased regular tickets and show the 60 day mark. Does this mean we won’t be able to get the same fastpasses?

Edie

Hi! I think I understand everything about the FP except for the part about starting at the end of your trip and working back. Does that mean at 60 days out from my check-in date I can reserve FP for attractions that are actually 64 days away (for a 4 day stay?) I guess I thought I would need to be up at midnight 4 nights in a row to make my picks.

Erin

I am going to Disney in March. Two of the people in the group want to do space mountain while the rest of us do not. Since I am in charge of the planning I was going to do the fast passes. Can I setup 2 then have them 2 do their own for that ride? I saw you said that you have to pick 3. We would like to do the other rides together. Btw I love your site!

Amie

hi! I am staying on Disney property and I know can reserve fast passes 60 days in advance. Our friends going with us are staying off property so they can reserve 30 days in advance. My question is….. can i add their park tickets to my my Disney experience and manage their tickets on my account and get them fast passes with ours all at the same time even though they wont be resisted guest at a Disney resort.

Yes, I do this all the time. My brother in law lives in FL and they have annual passes. I have them linked in my account so when they meet us at Disney, I am able to make dinner and FP reservations for all of us.

Kelly

Did you ever find the answer? I have the same question.

Brian Weathers

If I can only (for personal reasons) book my Fastpasses at 55 days out instead of 60, how much effect will this have on availability? Will I miss out on 7DMT at MK for example?

Jes

I want to say thank you! I have (in less than an hour) made EVERY reservation for EVERY fastpass that I was hoping to get through your tips for my upcoming March trip. Thank you for all your knowledge and advice! Thank you a million times!

Kelley

Hi there I have a complicated booking reservation for my upcoming trip in April 2016 . I have a 1 day room only on the 9th a 2 day DVC on the 10 the then a 4 day starting the 12 that my 7 day ticket is attached to. When will my 60 day window start? From the April 9th or April 12 ?

NeatN

Our FastPass+ booking opportunity opens on Dec. 29. Magic Kingdom is open until 1 am. This will be our first time booking the FastPass+. Does anyone know what time it will begin? Midnight like normal? 1 am when MK closes? 2 am which is 1 hour after MK closes? Thank you!

NeatN

Sweet! Thank you very much for the quick reply!

Momma

HELP!
I just booked a meet and greet with Anna and Elsa on Christmas day at 7pm. Problem is I booked myself first and now when I go to copy the only time available is 11pm. Can I use my fastpass time and my daughter still meet them? I have no idea how this works.

Mel

Brilliant advice. – used many of these tips for booking our FPs this summer. As we are in the UK there were quite a few early mornings for us to get in at the start of the window.
We managed to get Anna and Elsa but it took some time – we booked what times we could and added people as soon as more became available in the end the 6 in our party had these impossible to get FPs all of which had a crossover of at least 10 minutes. I would say don’t give up, the last FP for Anna and Elsa was booked the week before we arrived.

Ali

Hi Shannon,

Thanks so much for your detailed website I have used a lot of it for my planning!

I just wanted to point out to you that this fastpass strategy page may need to be updated as some of the information is not applicable to UK residents. I wanted to provide you with a rundown of my fastpass experience this week so that it might help other people (particularly UK residents). It may be the case that WDW have made some allowances for the UK as there has been a huge marketing push in this region lately.

I will be staying at a DW hotel for 2 days during my stay so was geared up for my 60 day booking window. As I’m located in the UK, I was ready to follow your strategy (i.e. wake up at 12 midnight EST which is 4am GMT) when the booking window opened over the course of two nights to book in my 2 day’s worth of fastpasses.

However the night before at around 8:30pm-9pm GMT (4:30-5pm EST) I received an email from WD planning stating that my fp+ booking window had opened and provided a link which gave me access to fp+ booking for both days of my stay! This is a full 6 hrs earlier than the times provided in your strategy (which may only be for US residents?), and at least 1 day earlier than my US counterparts for my 2nd day in the park (I believe)? Unfortunately I wasn’t aware of this WD email so it was sitting in my inbox for 1 full hr before I discovered that fp+ was already accessible, and by that time all of the good mine train timeslots were gone. It could have been worse, at least that email didn’t go to junk mail!

Would be good to know whether this is the same for those in the US, or whether it is UK/overseas resident applicable only? Were you aware of this?

Many thanks again!

Izzy

Am finding the whole fast pass system so frustrating – it seems to me that you are really penalised as an off site guest in terms of only being able to access fast passes 30 days in advance as opposed to 60. I’ve been at my computer at 5.50 each morning (I live in the uk) trying to get fast passes from when they are released at 6am and it’s impossible to secure any for the most popular attractions like Mine Train or Elsa and Anna as they have already gone! Feeling quite let down by this and hope that the queues are not too bad when we get there – am taking 3 very excited kids. Think they should keep a number of fast passes back so they can still release a decent amount 30 says in advance….

Cathy

I was just practicing and with the 30 day window and 7DMT was gone when I looked for both my husband and I but was available when I looked for just myself and then I added him on a few seconds later so I’d try that approach. Plus I’d keep checking during the 29th day as well since I’m sure plenty of other people are “practicing” each night as well. (And yes, I already cancelled mine to be nice as my trip isn’t actually until April.)
Good luck!

Mera

There are young women across the country with beautiful voices and Elsa and Anna costumes who are willing to dress up and meet your children for $100-150/hour – a whole private hour with Elsa and/or Anna! Seems worth it to me rather than all this stress and hype to meet characters for just a few minutes – especially if your kids are in love! I’ve done it twice this year for my kids in Pittsburgh and it’s a lot cheaper than our Disney vacation! I’m sure you could find them through referrals or on the web locally. We had a different girl each time and they couldn’t tell the difference. My kids are 2 and 3, though.

Liz

Thank you for this fabulous information! I just logged on at midnight and came up empty handed for the Elsa/Anna Fastpass. This is a major disappointment since we are only staying at a Disney property for the 60 day access to this Fastpass. πŸ™
My question is – if you arrive to MK before the Early Magic Hour and go straight to Fantasyland, how l0ng would you expect to wait? (This is for the first Mon in Nov.) Thanks again!

Natalie

Hi, We were at the Welcome show and were the first group of people to get into the park behind the rope carriers and we rushed straight into see Anna and Elsa from the second they let us and we didnt have to wait long at all… but you have to be at the gate early to get in front of the people for the show and there will be some fast walking required to stay right behind the rope drop and you may have to deal with pushy people πŸ™‚

Sherry

My daughter’s only BIG wish for her 20th birthday celebration was to get a photo with Anna & Elsa. We were unable to get a fast pass for this attraction but we managed to get in with only a 10 minute wait and it was mid-June. Get to MK super-early! We arrived a good 45 minutes before rope drop and were within the first 50 to get into the park. I had never seen the show before rope drop and we adored it! Went directly to the attraction, waited 10 minutes, had photos taken of both my daughter and her friend (each alone with A & E and with each other with the Frozen princesses — they do not rush you through) and by the time we exited @ 8:20 a.m., the wait time was 240 minutes! Go early! Worked well for us!

Laura

Thanks for all the excellent information!!

Shannon; When choosing your fast passes are you able to narrow down the times you want or do you have to choose from the options provided and then modify??

Laurel

Are there established patterns for the Extra Magic Hours? We are just planning our trip for 9 months from now. We want to plan what parks we are going to and then our dining options. It would be helpful to know what days are likely to have Extra Magic Hours at each park. Thank you for any help you can give.

Lesley

When talking about option #2 above, you say “you’ll hopefully end up here with a successful copy of your FastPass+ reservations”. What determines whether it will successfully copy? How often does it work (and not work)? My 60 window opens next week and I’m planning to start with our last day and try to get A&E, but I don’t want to waste a valuable Fastpass+ selection if only one of us can go to that attraction. I’m new to this process and I have no idea what I’m doing!! Thanks for the great info.

Lauren

Can you make fast passes for 2 different parks, but the same day?

Holly Edwards

We are staying at 2 different properties during our stay. We are staying for 7 nights, 5 at one resort and 2 at another. My question is, will I still be able to book fast passes for the last day of our stay 60 days out from our first day since we will be moving hotels and actually have 2 reservations? Thanks so much for all the helpful info! πŸ™‚

Mike

I have a 7 night reservation followed by a 2 night reservation and would also love to know if I can make fastpass+ reservations for my entire 9 days. Does anyone know the answer to this question?

Jessica Lien

Why wasn’t the Anna & Elsa (or the Mine Train, for that matter) even an option when I scheduled my Fast Pass reservations? It was grayed out with an ‘x’ over the button you click to check yes? I got on at 12:00 am (eastern time) exactly 60 days prior to our trip and I couldn’t even choose it as an option. When I look at other days, it says “fast pass is closed for this date” or something along those lines. Please help! (We will be at WDW Sept 19-26). Thanks!

kristin

I had the same issue last night at midnight…frustrating.

Jackie

I also had this problem

christina

I just had the same problem. The system needs to be re-evaluated.

Jennifer

We are traveling to Disney on September 4, 2015 and I was able to make FastPass+ reservations at 11:01 pm CST (12:01 am EST). I kept logging out of the Disney app on my phone and it opened up at that time. We got all of our must haves, including Meet Anna and Elsa and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, multiple times on all days. The trick is to get on the site/app as close to 12:00 am EST as you can! We are staying on resort and partaking in the Free Dining this year. With a party of 9, it was more cost effective – even with a reservation at Old Key West.

A word of advice on Free Dining and snagging it – call as soon as it is announced. I had my phone and my husband’s phone calling at the same time, with both on hold. I was on hold for over two hours but it was well worth it. I will say the gentleman who helped me stated that I was the first person out of the last eight who qualified to receive it. Just do the math and see which route saves you the most money. We are still getting the Tables in Wonderland card to save $$$ on alcohol.

Aimee

I just got back from Disney. The app really helped. I would check fast pass availability on the bus ride from the resort to the park each day. That is how I scored a last minute fastpass to the Dwarf’s Minetrain. Also, if you don’t mind missing the last couple of minutes of the fireworks show, start making your way to the ride just before the show ends. Even on a regular hours night, the park is open for another hour after the fireworks although many people go ahead and leave. By heading to the Dwarf’s just before the fiteworks ended, we were able to ride again, without a fastpass, and only a 15 minute wait!

Susan

This is really depressing, it sounds like the average off-property guest stands no chance of getting any good fast passes. Really hating the new system right now! πŸ™

Angie

So we are a family of 6 traveling to Disney this July. My 3 boys could care less about seeing a princess, but my daughter and I really want to meet Anna and Elsa and just can’t ‘let it go.’ πŸ˜‰ If we try to get a FP+ 60 days ahead of time and do not obtain a pass, then do I understand correctly that I can check in daily and see if more FP+ just happen to pop up? Also, if I understand correctly, since my DD and I are the only ones who want to go see them, the boys can use their FP+ for something else? Thank you so much for all of your help. I agree with the above comments on how people just don’t plan for this trip- that is just crazy!

Diana Drummond

You have it right.

Also, you can do the ‘run to meet Anna and Elsa at rope drop’ thing. My kids are slow moving at rope drop and the wait was only about 20 minutes.

Peter Elkins

Booked Fastpasses this morning at 60 days, but can only book for the first 14 days of our trip. Our trip is for 21 days. When will I be able to book fastpases for the last 7 days of our trip ?

Rachel

Did you ever find the answer to this? I’m currently having the same issue

21 days in Disney?! That’s fantastic! You shouldn’t have any issues getting on all of the popular rides during your stay. Are you camping during your visit?

Andrew

Great advice to know. I really want to hit everything in the one day I have at MK, except for the “Meet” stuff, since it will just be adults in my party. The only thing I’m worried about missing is the Seven Dwarfs. When I booked my 3 FP+ at the time I bought my tickets the SD wasn’t available. I didn’t even think to check back. I just check and it’s still not available, but A&E is, go figure. Too bad there’s not a way to trade with people. At least I’m guessing there is not.

EPP

I have been on this ride and it isn’t worth waiting more than 20 mins for worth wasting a fastpass on. Sorry to be a downer, but it is the truth.

Terra

I agree that the wait is not worth it for the Dwarf roller coaster ride, but still, if you haven’t done it and really want to, I understand that. I went to Disney in Oct. 2014 with a girlfriend and will be there this Oct. 2015 with my husband and small girls. He really wants to go on it, and I told him I’ll pass and stay with our girls.

My girlfriend and I did not have fast passes to get on it back in Oct. 2014, we just booked it after the rope drop and waited only 15 minutes (we were like 3rd in line!). Now, we were quite determined and ran as fast as our legs could carry us (politely – no pushing and shoving, I promise). But if you just make a point to get there right after opening, you just might get lucky. For my hubby’s sake, I hope we can get him a FP, but if not, we’ll be getting to the park early the day he wants to ride it.

Troy

You mention booking fast-passes for the entire trip and then AFTER copying other members of the party. I thought I read somewhere that you can link your party together BEFORE you make those selections, thus saving a step? Now that I am trying to find that article I cannot. Therefore, must I book for myself and then copy my spouse – or can we link our tickets first and save a step? Thanks for the information.

Lori M

This website updates availability for tough to get fastpasses (based on 4 passes) every 30 minutes or so and I have seen Elsa and Anna as well as 7 Dwarves Mine Train come available within 30 days. Its also nice to see if you are booking 60 days out for your trip that and your trip is 7 days long that you can book Elsa and Anna at 63 days (currently) rather than keep changing date and trying for every day of your trip. Its so hectic once your booking window opens up!

Bryan

Shannon…what a great resource you’ve built here. Thank you so much.

I’m curious if anyone has any thoughts, experiences or strategies on obtaining Seven Dwarfs Mine Train FastPasses for a large party. We have 11. I’ve been jumping on them (mostly 1 at a time) when they become available, regardless of time. I’m hoping that when our trip rolls around in 20 days or so I’ll be able to change the times to make them overlap or at least be close. Thoughts?

Siyan

Hi Shannon! Im just wondering if its possible to add a person to my fp selections at a later date. My mom may not have her ticket at the time I log on to select fp so I didnt know if the copy feature might possible work to add her later if needed.

Thanks

Natalie

If I search for a different time on a fastpass+ attraction I already have, do I give up that fastpass? Or do I still have it until I press confirm. I just don’t want to lose it if I can’t find a better time.

Christy

Did you ever get an answer? I am wondering the same and am sitting by the computer afraid to confirm and lose my fast pass!

Moya

hi!

Wondering if you have to make fast pass reservations for children under 3?

Thanks πŸ™‚

Carey Solley

I’m able to make my 60 day fastpass reservations at 12 EST tonight for my upcoming trip (May 9). I’ve tried to do a dry run this morning and when I get to the pick a day, it is only running up until April 8 (not May 8). Will this correct itself by a full month tonight, or should I contact Disney today regarding the calendar? We’re staying onsite, and everything is linked up on my Disney experience as far I as can see. Thanks!

Heather

Hi, same thing happened to me. Right up until midnight the calendar was only letting me choose up to 30 days in advance, but at midnight it reset to 60 days out and I was able to make my fastpass reservations. Just make sure that your resort stay is linked with my disney experience which it sounds like you’ve already done.

I am having the same issue Carey Solley was having a few weeks ago…In a few minutes, at midnight, I will be 60 days prior to my trip and able to select my FP+ reservations but it will only allow me to select 30 days out. Will this adjust itself once midnight is here or do I need to call Disney? My onsite reservation is linked to My Disney Experience. Thank you!

I’m able to make my 60 day fastpass reservations at 12 EST tonight for my upcoming trip (May 9). I’ve tried to do a dry run this morning and when I get to the pick a day, it is only running up until April 8 (not May 8). Will this correct itself by a full month tonight, or should I contact Disney today regarding the calendar? We’re staying onsite, and everything is linked up on my Disney experience as far I as can see. Thanks!

Does each person get 3 Fp+ per day or per family?

So for a group of 4 do we have 12 FP+ to book or only 3?

Thanks! Your information is wonderful.

How many days you staying? From what I have seen anna/Elsa runs about 63 days booked up in advance so unless your trip is 4 days or more even logging on at midnight won’t always get you a fast pass.

How is it that I logged in at my 60-day at 11pm CST and still was not able to obtain an Anna/Elsa meet and greet? Ugh! In your experience have you known for dates & times to just “show up” at a later date (say day 55-ish)? I’m just trying to figure out if I need to monitor the FastPass site daily until our trip in May (2015). My 4 year old met them last year and she was really hoping to meet them again this year.

We are staying 6 days. How can a fast pass be 63 days out when you can only begin to make fastpass choices at the 60 day mark? Any suggestions on how to obtain one? I was told that sometimes the “elusive” fastpass for Anna & Elsa shows up again around day 45 as that is the last day for payments on trips.
It really must have been “dumb luck” that we obtained one last year.

When you are staying on-site, you log in at 60 days out from your FIRST day, but you can make your FP+ picks for your whole trip, up to 10 days from that first day. So in essence, you can make your FP+ reservations for 70 days out. Or maybe it’s 69. I’m too tired to math. Anyway, this is why it is usually suggested to do at least one MK day later in your trip and try to get your FP+ for A&E and/or SDMT for later in the trip.

Can you book 10 days out if you are only staying on property 2 days? I’m at Wilderness Lodge days 1&2 of my trip then the Dolphin days 3-7.

Laurie

We’re still 146 days out from our trip, but when I try to make FastPass+ reservations for Elsa & Anna, do I only make them for my daughter, since she is the one who wants to interact with them? Or do my husband and I need FastPasses as well to go in with her?
