Default Help for a Friend !!

My friend's fastpass window opens on Monday. Disney is telling her she can't book fastpass' till 7am. I thought I had read that you can book right after midnight. Can I please get some reliable information from my friends here at mouseowners..

It changed in the last year or so. Used to be midnight ET and now it is 7am ET. I think that is far more sane for us east coasters as I never am up until midnight willingly

Normally, IDGAF about getting Fastpasses the second the window opens. However, I needed to do it since my first day is Avatarland's opening day and yes, it was brutal.
