Thread: 30 day FP availability (in light of changes for "throwaway" night

    30 day FP availability (in light of changes for "throwaway" night

    Now that it seems that the stated policy is for throwaway nights to not have a rolling 60 day window (though if anyone can confirm or refute the implementation of this I would much appreciate it) I am rethinking the strategy for our next trip. Aside from FoP and SDD are there any rides that have effectively no availability at 30 days? 7DMT? FEA?

    I booked a very last minute trip in August, (15 days out) for a family of 4 and the only things I couldnít get were 7DMT, FOP, and Slinky/Alien. I got everything else including Navi and Toy Story Mania. It was our 4th trip in our APís so we didnít sweat the rides we couldnít get. We rode Mine Train at closing one night and Alien at rope drop and just skipped Slinky and FOP. It was still an awesome trip.

    Yes rolling 60 is gone. I am currently between 30 and 60 days from my next trip. When I go to book FP I can click on any day in the next 30 days. And I can click on any day of my on site trip, including check in and check out. But all the days between 30 days and check in date and all the days after check out are grayed out.

    We stayed offsite last June. I wasn't able to get 7DMT or FoP at 30 days at all. FEA was available for bad times, but we weren't interested in it. The only other one I had trouble with was Peter Pan, but I eventually got *a* time for it--not a good time, but I had it. We had to reschedule our trip 4 days before we were supposed to leave and ended up rebooking FP 12 days out from the new trip. I was able to rebook everything except Peter Pan, which I never did get for our new dates. I continued to search and was able to get 2 set of FP for FoP and 2 for 7DMT a few days later; I think it was because they added hours and then released more FP. This was before TSL opened.

    Thanks. The change in rules is forcing me to adjust my approaches to planning (including considering multiple "throwaways"), so I appreciate the info!

    Hilton Bonnet Creek and the Waldorf at Bonnet Creek were just added to the "Official Disney Hotel" list. They can now book FP at 60 days. IDK how much this would impact FP availability, but just thought I'd throw that out there.

    I thought they only got EMH access, no 60 day FP. Did that change over the weekend?
