Prime Disney World dining and FastPass + reservations fill quickly, especially during busy seasons. Make sure you get the experience you want and deserve! Your can make your dining and fastpass reservations using My Disney Experience. You can also call to make your reservations. Disney Reservation Center can be reached at (407)- WDW-DINE 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM Monday through Friday, and 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
Step 4- Plan Ahead
Plan out your days to prepare for your dining reservations and FastPass + selections. Poorly planned FastPass and dining can have you and your family walking from one end of the park to the other trying to make your reservation or FastPass + time (you get a one hour window).
-Know the park layout when making your dining and FastPass +selections so that you aren't going back and forth across the parks.
-Know which attractions are the best use of your 3 FastPass + selections. You want to make sure you use them on the attractions that have the longest waits. You can use you My Disney Experience App to get and idea of which those re (or ask your agent :) )
- Know where and when the special events (parades, performances, fireworks, etc) are taking place around the park and plan around them. If you are not interested in big events, sometimes that is a great time for hitting those longer wait rides (for instance if you are not interested in fireworks, the lines will be shorter during the show)
Don't Forget To Order Your Magic Bands!
If you need any help along the way, always feel free to ask your agent!
