    aIs there a difference between Fast Pass and Fast Pass +?

    Hi Jean!

    This is a great question!

    The FastPass service was the precursor to the current FastPass+ service at Walt Disney World Resort. FastPass+ was introduced a few years ago and it, combined with My Disney Experience, has transformed the way we vacation at Walt Disney World Resort! My family loves it!

    With the complimentary FastPass+ service, you can reserve access to select attractions, entertainment, Character Experiences, and more. With the purchase of a ticket or Annual Pass, you can begin making FastPass+ selections 30 days before you arrive beginning at 7:00 AM Eastern Time. As a bonus, if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, Disney Springs Area Hotels or other select nearby hotels, you can make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to check-in for the entire length of your stay.

    To begin making FastPass+ selections, link your reservation and tickets to your My Disney Experience account and be sure to link the others in your traveling party to your Family & Friends list.

    You can make up to three selections in one theme park per day. Once you have redeemed your initial three FastPass+ selections, you can begin making additional selections, one at a time, throughout the day. If you have the Park Hopper option on your theme park tickets, you can even select FastPass+ times for attractions at other theme parks if you plan to hop to a different theme park later in the day.

    While it's not required, we try to make our FastPass+ selections for morning times so we can continue making selections throughout the day.  

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you need any other information regarding the Disney FastPass+ service.
