Disney Planning Part 2- Days 61-60

Why 61 days?
Because at midnight, 60 days, out, you can log on to the MyDisneyExperience App and reserve your Fastpass selections. You get 3.

I had things I wanted, but really, the only reason to log on 60 days out is if you wanted to see Anna and Elsa. And I KNOW my soon-to-be 4 year old would. And I want to spoil her. So there you have it.

There are a lot of good blogs out there with fast pass help. For me, I used these:

Best general Fastpass advice is OF COURSE from the WDW Prep School.

For the hard ones I wanted to get, and save my time at the witching hour, I checked out DIBs Fastpass Calculator, so that I didn't waste time on days they were already booked up.

My Strategy:
1. Book all my fastpasses in the morning, because we would be taking a mid-day break each day. (Sleep or not, naptime/quiet time is just going to happen so we all stay happy)
  • This also allows for us to book 1 afternoon fast pass at a time, but if we change parks, we aren't held to a fast pass time.  I only have one exception to this. We KNEW we would stay in Hollywood Studios for the entire day, as we booked a lunch Fantasmic package, and therefore had FP tickets for the Fantasmic shows. We'd be back.
2. Check out which rides generally don't need Fastpasses, and not waste our time. For this, I love Kenny the Pirates blog.

3. Say a little prayer.

Exactly at midnight, it opened up! This is what we ended up getting:
