FAQ: FastPass

FastPass is Disney’s attraction reservation system.  It allows you to reserve a time for an attraction with a short wait.  Here are some frequently asked questions about the FastPass+ system.

How much does it cost? It costs nothing, it is included with your park ticket.

Where are my FastPasses?  These are connected to your ticket media, so it may be a physical ticket, or your MagicBand.

How many FastPass reservations can I make?  You can make 3 FastPass reservations initially, after you use those you can make additional reservations one at a time.

How to make more FastPass? You can make additional FastPass using the My Disney Experience app or website, as well as the FastPass+ kiosks in the parks.

How do I make my initial 3 FastPass reservations? You can make these reservations on the My Disney Experience app or at www.startyourdisneyexperience.com at 60 days prior for Walt Disney World Resort guests, 30 days for off-site and annual passholders.  You can start to make these reservations at 7am.IMG_0139

How long do I have to use my FastPass?  Generally you have 1 hour to use your FastPass.  However if you are using this for a show the time will generally be 20-30 minutes prior to the show.

Can I show up early for my FastPass? Generally, no you have to wait until your FastPass window to open.

Can I show up late for my FastPass? Again, generally, no.  If you get lucky and get a really nice Cast Member, they may let you in late but don’t wait too long, over 15 minutes late and your FastPass will essentially expire.

Can I change my FastPass?  Yes you can change the experience or time of your FastPass if you change your plans or you mind.  You can do this in the app or online.

Does everyone have to have the same FastPasses? Not at all!  This flexibility makes it easy to be able to do what appeals to everyone in your party.

How long are the FastPass lines?  The FastPass lines vary based on attraction, time of day and how busy the standby line is for the attraction.

 

Do you have any other burning FastPass questions?  Ask away!

As a refresher, Disney allows onsite guests to make reservations 60 days prior to arrival.  Offsite (day guests) may make reservations 30 days prior to arrival.
