What can I say except, “You’re welcome.” ~ Maui

 

What is a FastPass?

  • A FastPass is basically a reservation in line for your favorite ride, show, attraction, parade or firework!

How does it work?

  • You choose your favorite three FastPasses (reservations). When you arrive at the parks, you’ll ride normal rides in the standby line and then when it’s time for your reserved time, you’ll head over to your ride and bypass the rest of the folks in line to the front of the line!
  • You get three FastPasses to use in the same park. Once those have been used, you can physically go to a kiosk that day and schedule one at a time. After each one is used, you can schedule another as long as there is availability in that park.
  • Don’t like your time? Changed your mind on a ride? You can change your time or experience online or in the app before you arrive,  or in the app/at the park as long as the ride time has not expired.

How do I schedule mine?

  • Before you go: Schedule yours on www.mydisneyexperience.com.
  • Before you go: Download the My Disney Experience app on your Android or iPhone.
  • At the parks: Go to a FastPass+ kiosk in the park.

Things to note:

  • The earlier you schedule them the more likely you are to be able to obtain more FastPasses!
  • If you’re staying on property, your FastPasses are already loaded to your Magic Bands!
  • Traveling with multiple parties? You can link your FastPasses together!
  • Different age groups? You can schedule FastPasses for only part of your party, and schedule different rides for the rest!
