Fact Sheet: FastPass+

Filed in: MyMagic+

A customized, easy-to-use system allows guests to reserve access to some of their favorite experiences in advance

At Walt Disney World Resort, we are always looking for ways to help guests further customize their experience and make it even easier to create unforgettable moments with their families and friends. Since its start as a vacation innovation, Disney FASTPASS has been a great way to save time and enjoy Disney attractions with little or no wait. In 2014, Walt Disney World Resort took FASTPASS fun one step further — at no additional cost to guests — with FastPass+.

All guests can reserve access to favorite FastPass+ attractions and entertainment experiences before leaving home — or in the parks — giving them more time to explore and enjoy Walt Disney World. This can be accomplished via My Disney Experience, online or on the mobile app, or at FastPass+ kiosks located in Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.

Guests can make changes to their FastPass+ selections up to the time they are redeemed, even during the day they are visiting the park. Changes can be made with the free My Disney Experience mobile app or through kiosks located in Walt Disney World parks.

Disney FastPass+ offers guests the confidence of knowing that their must-do fun is locked in, so that when they arrive they can enjoy the moment with family and friends. Once guests have secured their “must-do” experiences, they can relax, explore and allow for those unplanned moments of magic that happen when you are spending time with family and friends.

Using My Disney Experience, Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests may make FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance of their visit, for each day they have a park ticket. Disney Passholders and Day guests (those not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel) are able to make FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of their trip once tickets are purchased.

As of April 2016, guests will notice enhancements to how they make FastPass+ selections:

  • Guests are now be able to choose individual FastPass+ experiences and times and no longer need to make all selections for the same day at the same time.
  • While Guests are able to select up to three experiences in advance, they are now able to book fewer than three selections, if desired.
  • In addition, Guests who have used their first three FastPass+ selections are now be able to make an additional FastPass+ selection via the MyDisneyExperience mobile app, in addition to the FastPass+ kiosks located throughout the parks. Once they’ve used the fourth, Guests are able to select another, and so on.

Standby queues continue to be available to guests who choose not to use FastPass+ or who want to immerse themselves in the interactive experiences and theming that have become the “scene one” of many popular attractions.
