Disney’s FastPass+ System

disney fastpassBeginning in January 2014 Disney World is going to phase out the old paper FastPass tickets and kiosks.  The FastPass system has been replaced with the Disney FastPass+ system that will allow guests to pre-book rides 30-60 days prior to their arrival in Disney.  This system is still being implemented so, as you can expect, there are mixed reviews as to its effectiveness.  Here’s what we know about the program:

To set up FastPass+ on your tickets you need to register at My Disney Experience which acts as a central location to see your trip details to include reservations, entertainment and FastPass+ usage.

The FastPass+ system gives you the ability to reserve a time to experience a FastPass+ attraction in advance of your visit. This means you avoid waiting in long lines for some popular attractions (see list below).  FastPass+ reservations can also be made the day of your visit by visiting one of the kiosks or by accessing the My Disney Experience app on a mobile device.  Once your resort reservation and valid park admission are linked into your My Disney Experience account, you have the ability to schedule three FastPass+ selections for one park per day.  You may not get multiple FastPass+ for the same attractions in one day and can be modified if necessary.  When you arrive at the attraction, simply tap your MagicBand on the RFID reader and the system will scan them, allowing you access the ride/attraction. There is no charge for using FastPass+.

Disney resort guests can make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance (utilizing the My Disney Experience site).  Annual Passholders and offsite guests can make their reservations up to 30 days in advance.


FastPass+ can be used on the following rides/attractions:
