What’s the Deal with Disney Fastpass +

When Disney decided to discontinue their old Fastpass system to replace it with Fastpass + I had mixed feelings. I love that I can book my Fastpass+ up to 60 days before my visit from the comfort of my computer instead of running around the park getting paper tickets.  However, I was seriously bummed that you get to pick only 3 Fastpass + attractions ahead of time.  We had the old system down to where we could get 15 or more Fastpasses a day!

Now for the Disney updated……
Disney listened to guest feedback and you can now get more than 3 Fastpass+ at more than one park too!

 

How to get MORE Fastpass Pluses [like 15 or more!]

Step 1   Pick 3 attractions (all at the same park) from the convinience of your computer up to 60 days before your visit for resort guests and 30 days ahead for all other guests. [here is how to do that]
Step 2    Use all 3 of your pre selected Fastpass +
Step 3    Get more Fastpass +, one at a time, in any park, at one of the convinient Fastpass+ Kiosks located throughout the park.
Step 4    Continue getting more Fastpass+ each and every time you use up your existing Fastpass as long as there is availability.

So Can you REALLY get 15 or more Fastpass+? Yes!!

So, does it work?

YEP!

We recently took a trip to Disney and tried it out.  Not only where we able to get 15 Fastpass+ in one day at the Magic Kingdom, we were able to get them very quickly one after the other.

Here is how it worked for us: After we rode Peter Pan [using up our final Fastpass+ we reserved online] we went to the Fastpass+ Kiosk outside of Mickey’s Philharmagic a mere 15 feet away. I scanned my magic band and was able to make new fastpass+ selections for everyone in our party. I picked Buzz Light Year which had a window just 15 minutes from now. By the time we walked over there we walked right up to the Fastpass lane and right on the attraction. We finished riding Buzz Light Year and went to the convinient Fastpass+ Kiosk outside Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor just 10 feet away. I selected Winnie the Pooh. The window was just 5 minutes from then. Again, by the time we walked to the ride we literally walked right on the ride. Love this!!

Now I am not promising it will work out that easily each and every time you use it. During peak times and as more and more guests take advantage of getting more fastpass+ I am sure availability will go down. And good luck even getting an original Fastpass+ to Frozen let alone one later in the day! But this system works!

The tweaked Fastpass+ System allows you the flexibility and convenience of reserving attractions online, including things like parades which were not available before, while still offering guests the ability to utilize the system to the fullest for those that want to do so.
In my humble opinion, Disney has got the ultimate convenient guest planning tool that will make guests VERY happy!

  • We just got back from Disney, and on the last day we decided to book one more park day and explore Animal Kingdom. (So we obviously didn’t get our fast passes for that day until we got there.) Somehow, I was able to get a same day fast pass+ for Na’vi River Journey for an hour later. I was so shocked! The wait was 130 minutes when we walked up for our FP+… We were so happy!
