Easily snagged FP+ I thought might be difficult to get

Booked our fastpassses for July and I was pleasantly surprised about getting everything we wanted.

I was hoping for FOP on our first day but figured it would be nearly impossible. Not only did I get the evening time I wanted there were plenty of options for both FOP and Navi' River.

We're going to HS later in our trip and there were many options for Slinky Dog Coaster, Alien Saucers and TSMM. I was hoping for 8AM for Slinky Dog but had to settle for 11:10... not bad. Alien Saucers had times starting around 11 also. I'm wondering if Disney isn't releasing FP for early in the am for the new rides. I know it will be popular and it's also likely early FP were already booked solid.

I'm happy with what we got! I wanted to let others know it may not be as hard to book the Pandora and Toy Story Land FP as I was thinking. Good luck if you're booking soon too!

Congrats ! "Fast Pass Day" is always so stressful for me, but I have also, always had good luck getting what and when I wanted.

"Luck favors the prepared" as Edna said.

I can't wait to hear what you think of Toy Story land.

Have a Great Trip !!

You go at a less busy time than me so I'm thinking you'll be ok. Good luck. I did log in at 7 on my FP day but I can still see options available.

I'm not sure the first couple of weeks in August are really all that slow. The hours are still late and it's acutally once we get home the hours get reduced at the parks. As a matter of fact, two years ago when we went at the same time frame, Disney changed the MK hours at the last minute to open at 8 am for everyone instead of 9 and some nights it stayed open later too.

Well fingers crossed then.
