A common topic recently has been people looking for an example of exactly how booking and/or modifying their FastPass+ selections will work. Keep in mind that this process has been changed multiple times and is likely to change again, so there may be some differences from the examples to what you really see.
Post 1 - Example of Booking a Day using the MDE Website
Post 2 - Example of Modifying a FP+ to a new time, new attraction, and new people using the MDE Website
Post 3 - Example of Booking a Day using the MDE Android App.
Post 4 - Example of using the Copy to get a difficult FP+ like 7DMT or A&E.
Post 11 - Example of using the Cancel screen.
What do I need to do to be eligible?
- Create a My Disney Experience (MDE) account.
- Link tickets to your MDE account (or link your package reservation that includes tickets).
- You can book at 30 days before the FP+ date without an on-site resort reservation. You will need to book each day 1 day at a time as it reaches the 30 day mark.
- You can book at 60 days before your resort arrival date with an on-site resort reservation linked to MDE in addition to the tickets. You can book 60+ days out to the end of your resort reservation, or the how ever many days of tickets, whichever ends first.
Now that we assume you are eligible to book FP+ lets go through an example.
Based on the Cheat Sheets we will be trying to get the following 3 FP+ on September 27th, to match the "Two Day Late Arrival Plan Day 1" at Epcot":
- Spaceship Earth (10:30am–11:30am) - goal to ride at 11:00am
- Maelstrom (11:30am–12:30pm) - goal to ride at 12:00am
- Test Track (5pm–6pm) - goal to ride at 5:15pm
Sign in to disneyworld.com and go to FastPass+ screen.
Select the calendar to change the date.
Select the date you want, then wait for the screen to reload with that date.
Click Select on your date, then click Next.
Select the people you want to get the FP+ for (often you will Select All), then click Next.
Select the park, then click Next.
Select the 3 attractions, then click Next.
You will be asked to prioritize the attractions, which really doesn't matter. Just click Next.
You will be presented with 4 options. Normally you want to pick the option that has the times farthest from what you actually want, since you can't overlap times as you move them. In this case, it was option C. Then click Next. (If you don't like any of the options you can go back and do this step again and you will get different options to select from)
At the next screen your FP+ have actually now been booked, but you can easily make changes to the times. Click the Make Changes button on the one earliest in the day to modify, which for us in Spaceship Earth. (Do not click Done on this screen)
Select the new time you want from the dropdown (or the closest you can find), then click Update. I selected 10:15-11:15. It will automatically select for all people in your group.
It will Confirm your change, and then leave you on the same screen. Click Select New Time on the next one you want to modify, which is the second in the day.
Again select the new time you want, then click Update. I selected 11:25-12:25.
Repeat this again for the last attraction, clicking Select New Time, then choosing a time, then Update. I selected 5:05-6:05.
You should now see Change Confirmed on all 3 selections, and you should see the times as you want them for all 3. You can then click Close.
You will then be taken to a screen where you can either Select and Replace (start over for that date), Change (if you want to do more modifications), Copy (from one person to another) or Cancel (delete all).
Oddly, this screen doesn't give you an option to start working on your next day, which is what you are most likely to want to do at this point. You will either need to go back to disneyworld.com and follow the instructions again, or click the Cancel button to leave this screen. **Make sure you do not Cancel the FP+ you just setup accidentally, since there are 2 Cancel buttons on the screen.
From here you just repeat the steps for each day of your vacation.
