What Is FastPass+?
FastPass+ is a complimentary perk that is included with your valid theme park admission. FastPass+ service allows you to reserve access to select attractions, character meet-n-greets, and entertainment.
FastPass+ is Disney’s way of allowing you to “skip” the standby wait line. FastPass+ has its own line with minimal to no wait times.
How It Works
You can select up to 3 FastPass+ selections per day in advance either online in your My Disney Experience account or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.
You will need to have valid theme park tickets purchased and linked to your My Disney Experience account to be able to make your selections.
FastPasses are scheduled in 1 hour long increments.
Example you can schedule Space Mountain from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Your next FastPass+ selection would have to be anytime before or after that 1 hour window, they cannot overlap.
To use your Fastpass+ selections arrive at your prescheduled attraction anytime during your 1 hour Fastpass+ window. Go to the FastPass+ entrance line. There you will be asked to scan in using either your MagicBand or card, you can then enjoy the attraction with minimal to no wait.
Two Ways of Scheduling FastPass+
Advanced FastPass+ are the 3 FastPass+ selections you can make prior to entering the theme park.
You must make all 3 of your advanced FastPass+ selections, for the day, in the same theme park. Example: Monday 3 FastPass+ selections in Magic Kingdom, Tuesday 3 FastPass+ selections in Epcot etc. They can not be split up to reserve 2 FastPasses in Animal Kingdom and 1 FastPass in Magic Kingdom.
Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can make their advanced FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to check-in for the entire length of their stay. Starting at 7 a.m. Eastern time 60 days out from check-in. Everyone else with park tickets can book their advanced FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance, one day at a time.
Advanced FastPass+ selections can be made online in your My Disney Experience account or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.
Same Day FastPass+ are the additional FastPass+ selections you can make after you have used your 3 advanced FastPass+ selections.
You can use the My Disney Expereince app or one of the in-park kiosks to make additional selections.
You can also make same day FastPass+ selections in multiple parks. If you have a Park Hopper pass, allowing you admission to all the parks on the same day, you can schedule same day FastPasses in more than one park after you have used your first 3.
Your Fastpass+ booking window is an important date that you do not want to miss especially if you are trying to score FastPasses for highly sought after attractions.
We recommend figuring out ahead of time which rides you would like to schedule your 3 advanced FastPass+ selections per day for. Popular rides book up fast at the 60 day mark. We highly recommend booking your FastPass+ selections as soon as your booking window opens.
Made your 3 FastPass+ selections for a park and decided to visit a different park that day? No problem you can change your selections to another park using My Disney Experience or the mobile app.
If scheduling FastPasses for your whole family or for friends make sure they are all linked ahead of time to the account of the person that will be scheduling them.
