Quick tip of the day

Listener Julie emailed this tip:
"When trying to book extra fastpasses later in the day, it's often hard to get the same time for a while group. But you can search for less people and often find overlapping reservations. Sometimes even for the same time.

For instance: we were on our way to Animal Kingdom in the afternoon and wanted to do the Kilimanjaro Safaris, there were no FastPasses for four people. But there are plenty for one person all within 10-15 minutes of each other, since there is an hour to get to the fast pass after it starts we all had plenty of time to get there and ride as one group."
