13 Rookie Mistakes at Walt Disney World Resort

10. Rookies often don’t make FastPass+ selections. With an amazing app that offers access to all kinds of reservations at Disney World—dining, character experiences, shows and attractions—surely everyone makes their FastPass+ selections long before visiting this most magnificent place, right? Wrong. Rookies may feel a certain entitlement to luck, and therefore, they leave everything to chance when it comes to getting FastPass+ times for their favorite attractions. Don’t be a rookie. If you and your family are staying on Disney property during your vacation, you can make FastPass+ selections for attractions 60 days in advance. If you are staying outside of Disney property at a hotel or rental house, you can make those selections 30 days in advance. Don’t leave it up to chance because if you do, you just might find yourself left in a stand-by queue for all of your favorite rides!
