And believe it or not, the crowds haven’t been too bad today! We’re not sure what sort of wizardry is at work, but we’ll take all the extra elbow room we can get in Hogsmeade right about now!
We just shared the news that Disney will temporarily suspend FastPass+ and has canceled all FastPass+ reservations.
This announcement was made out of the need for “additional queue space to manage capacity at our attractions and maintain physical distancing,” per Disney’s announcement. This is all in preparation for Disney’s proposed reopening, set to take place mid-July.
Yesterday, Disney announced their plan to reopen Disney World beginning July 11th with Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They then plan to reopen Hollywood Studios and Epcot beginning July 15th.
Many changes have been announced as part of Disney World’s reopening plan. For starters, they have suspended new hotel reservations and ticket sales as they roll out a brand new reservation system. Now, they have made a HUGE update regarding FastPass+.
UPDATE: As of 3:20PM, our FastPasses reservations have returned to My Disney Experience. At this time we are still unable to make new FastPasses and we cannot currently modify our existing FastPasses.
Disney World proposed their reopening plan yesterday and since then they’ve been working out the details.
Disney is set to introduce a new reservation system for their theme parks and right now, they are no longer accepting new reservations. Yesterday we even spotted that Advance Dining Reservations were unavailable. Well today, something a little surprising is happening for folks who had FastPasses scheduled for July.
There are some essential things you might be leaving off of your Disney World itinerary!
Planning a Disney World vacation is exciting! In fact, sometimes we get so caught up snagging our Advance Dining Reservations, making our FastPass+ selections, and booking special event tickets that we forget to add some essential things into our schedule. Today we want to talk about something you might be disregarding that could actually make all the difference on your trip to Disney World!
Have you ever wondered why some people have it waaay better at Disney World? Is it MAGIC?

Hey, Disney Food Blog friends! We know that A LOT goes into planning a Disney World vacation and that it can get pretty confusing and overwhelming at times.

So here are answers to your BIGGEST Disney World Planning Questions right now!
From unpopular Disney opinions to uncontrollable tears, we’re going there!
We have countless wonderful memories of our Disney World vacations — but these are the moments that didn’t make the family photo album! Let’s shine a light on the experiences we’ve all had on a Disney trip but we’re too afraid to talk about!
There’s a LOT to accomplish in a single day at Disney World! Between all the rides to ride, shows to see, and characters to meet, FastPass+ is an excellent way to do it all.
With park crowds being relatively low in the morning, it may be optimal for you to make FastPass+ reservations in the late morning and early afternoon. This gives you the chance to ride some prime attractions in the morning before the lines build up, AND leaves the possibility to score MORE FastPasses later in the day.
But as you’re planning your FastPass selections, you may find that this strategy leaves little time for lunch. And keeping your energy up is critical to check all those boxes off your “to do” list!
With that in mind, we have six lunch suggestions for you to consider. These lunches will get you to your FastPasses on time, while still giving you a delicious meal. We cover all four parks in this list, so let’s jump right in!
Just when we think we have tried everything in Disney World, we stumble upon brand NEW experiences.
From going underground to trips on the high seas, we’ve got some fun things you may not know you can experience at Disney World! So will you be adding theses unique experiences to your next Disney World vacay?
