3. Be Ready To Book
For guests staying at a Disney World Resort, book 60 days out from arrival date at 7am EST (+ up to 10 days after arrival date). Non-resort guests will want to be ready to book at 30 days out, same time. The earlier booking time for resort guests is a great perk of staying on site.
4. Work Backwards
Everyone with your arrival date will be on their phone or computer trying to book Fastpass+ options alongside you. Therefore, do not begin with your arrival date, instead work backwards. If you want to ride a hard to get Fastpass+ such as Flight of Passage or Frozen Ever After, I suggest booking these towards the end of your trip since there will be less competition.
5. Don’t Give Up
Even if you follow all these tips, you may still not be able to get every Fastpass+ selection you hoped for. This is OK, do not give up. Cancellations happen all the time, keep checking and your never know when it will be your lucky day!
