Planning a Disney trip these days can be confusing with the new MagicBands & constantly changing Fastpass system it can seem like a full time job to organize your Walt Disney World vacation.  That’s what I am here for; I offer additional planning assistance with no additional fees when you book your next vacation with me.  ((shameless plug))

To begin, you will need an account at  After you have an account, you will need to link your reservations.  In My Disney Experience you will customize your MagicBands, make dining reservations & of course your fastpass+ reservations.  You can start making Fastpass+ Reservations 60 days in advance of your check in date when you are staying in a Disney owned resort.

The Fastpass attractions, for each park, are listed below along with any height restrictions. April 2016 brought some exciting, new changes to Disney’s Fastpass system.  You are no longer required to make 3 reservations, you may make up to 3, in advance, in a single park.  After you use your 3rd fastpass, you may make a 4th in any park, from your My Disney Experience app on your phone.

Magic Kingdom is not the only park that does not have a tiered fastpasses system; you may chose any 3 fastpass selections from the list.  Epcot, Hollywood Studios & Animal Kingdom have a tiered system that allows you to only chose 1 attraction from popular attractions & then 2 from less popular attractions.
