You posted that you had 61 days left yesterday, so that would mean that you are indeed at your 60 day mark today.

You gotta be original because if you're like someone else, what do they need you for?

Question...friends have a trip booked arriving Sept 20, and when they are in MDE the FP+ availability is only showing 30 days out. I am so confused. I am trying to help them book their FP 60 days out but it doesn't look like its going to allow it?

It's 30 days for off site. Sixty days is only for Disney resort reservations.

Does that clear it up?

This happened to me too but when my 60 day mark arrived the system automatically updated my booking date and allowed me to make FP+ reservations so I think your friend will be fine .

The same thing happened to me. It clearly said 30 days even though I had my hotel in there. When I asked someone at Disney, I was told they do that in case the tickets I linked in the system end up being used for a trip sooner. At 60 days, it instantly changed and worked. (Well, at 1am).

Yep. Until you're actually 60 days out from your arrival date, you're viewed as an offsite guest and can therefore only see 30 days out.

Takes a lot of effort to research my mistake but thanks! Actually due to work complications I had rearrange our trip by 3 days later a few days ago and my countdown on my phone and iPad still say the wrong time and typically when I'm on here I'm just plain excited I don't know why people are always looking for the bad....So we will be getting there September 17 but not go to the parks until the 18th

Me too!

I am able to make my fastpasses for my upcoming trip Sept 14-21. I even double checked my reminder magnet which lists July 16 as my day to book. Doubt many people will be checking early, so this may become a Dis exclusive perk. Thanks !!!!!!!
