Disney has decided to adjust the time in which Guests can begin to make their FastPass+ reservations for their vacations. Prior to today, Guests were able to book their reservations beginning at 12:00 a.m. EST in advance of their trip, however, as of today, the FastPass+ selection window will now be open for Guests at 7:00 a.m. EST within their applicable window.
The manner in which FastPass+ selections are made will still remain the same. Guests who are staying onsite at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel will still have the ability to make their FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance and Guests who are staying off-site, but have their ticket medium purchased will continue to be able to book reservations up to 30 days prior.
This change was made in order to allow Guests to make their FastPass+ selections at a more convenient time of the day, instead of making them in the middle of the night. This also means that Guests who are having trouble making their reservations can now contact Disney at that time, instead of having to wait until the morning with any issues they may be having.
Just one month ago, Disney made a change with the fourth rolling FastPass and now allow Guests to make this FastPass by utilizing the app after they have used their first three. In addition, Guests no long have to make three FastPass selections when scheduling their reservations and they now have the ability to choose what times they would like to make them for, instead of Disney telling you times and you having to go back to change them, should you want to shuffle them around.
It is certainly interesting to watch as FastPass+ continues to evolve. I’ll make sure to keep you posted on any further changes to this system.
