    This is the part that confuses me. Can you explain this in more detail?

    (Also, I assume you are referring to 61 days prior to the second BRV check-in date?)

    Unfortunately, no. It’s that cruise that’s messing up the open booking window. ;)

    61 days prior to CR check-in is when you can book for those final days.

    Yes because it’s Stay#1’s window that rolls and when it meets up with Stay#2’s window, #2 opens 1 day early.

    You don’t really have to understand why it works, just know to book at 61 days prior to Stay#2 or you’ll be a day late.

    OK, thanks! How many days of FPs will I be able to book at 61 days prior to the check-in date for Stay #2? The whole stay or just the first day?

    It’s a regular booking window so all park days associated with Stay#2.

    13 minutes and counting....I am prepared to not be able to get FoP, and we’re doing the TSL EMM so no need for SLD.....I feel like I’m way more nervous than I need to be! Yoga breathing....

    ok here's my situation. Next summer i will be taking two trips in June. Trip #1 we are staying offsite. Trip #2 (2 weeks later) is onsite. When my 60 day booking window opens for trip #2, will that also open up the booking window for trip #1 early? And if that's the case, as long as I have both sets of tickets attached to my name, I should be able to get all FP+ booked correct? Is there anything I will need to do with prioritizing tickets once I get to WDW? (one set may have park hoppers while the other doesn't. that part is still up in the air.)

    Hi all, we are staying at BW Lake Buena Vista and have booked our regular park day fast passes at our 60 day out point. There is 6 of us - 4 have 7 day passes and 2 have 6 day passes.

    Tonight I found out that we are able to book fast passes for the night of the Christmas party for the 4-7 time slot. When I went to do this, I receive this error:

    FastPass+ Limit Reached
    These Guests have reached their maximum FastPass+ allotment. To continue, remove them from your party. Their existing plans won't change. Or, go back and select a date for which you already made FastPass+ selections.

    I receive this error only for the 4 of us with the 7 day passes but not my in-laws that have the 6 days. Any idea why that is?

    Do the people with 7 day passes already have FP's chosen for that day?

    No, it's our first day after a cruise. We aren't going to the park until the party.

    We are park hopping. I have 3 of us getting fps at park #2, while I am getting 1 fp at park #1 for the other 3. I then plan (as soon as park #1 fp is tapped) to get the 2 additional fps at park #2. If the party of 3 are able to get on the ride before their fp time, can I cancel the Park #1 fp and get all 3 at park #2?

    I’m considering getting my first annual pass today....but the CM I’m on the phone with right now says I will only be able to book seven days of fast passes at my 60 day windows for my two scheduled trips in January (9 park days) and March 6 (5 park days). But I am staying at on site Disney resorts for both trips. Doesn’t this entitle me to fast passes for my length of both stays 60 days prior to each stay even though I will be using an annual pass?

    Yes you are entitled to book for all onsite park days.

    It’s always best not to ask CMs and instead rely on info in @mesaboy2 ’s FP FAQ.

    Thank You! I thought so, because it just doesn’t make sense to buy an annual pass if length of Disney resort stays for all trips aren’t treated the same way as regular park ticket holders. Thank you! I talked to three different CMs and was escalated up to an “annual pass technical expert” and all said it wouldn’t work for me to get fast passes at 60 days ahead of my 7 day early March trip when I hadn’t used my fast passes for my 9 day late January trip yet. All three CMs said it would not work even though I assured them that I would be staying at Port Orleans Riverside both times!

    Recently, the AP HelpDesk has been assisting APs having problems booking FPs for lengthy stays. Check with them if you have any problems.

    Can anyone tell me how long before a new attraction opens, will the fast pass plus window open? Will star Wars land fast passes open prior to the actual land opening? Or will the fast pass availability only open after the new rides open? We visited right before Toy story land, so I wasn't paying attention to the fast pass opening day. Thank you for any answers!

    FPs for new attractions have been added to the system approximately 70-90 days prior to the ride actually opening.

    It’s expected to be the same for SW Galaxy’s Edge.
