    How can I best use FASTPASS?

    Hi there, Rebecca! Thanks for trusting the Disney Parks Moms Panel to help you plan your visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    It sounds like you are looking for ways to tour the parks efficiently which is a topic that is right up my alley! Using Disney FASTPASS Service is the best way to ride all the big attractions with minimal wait times. Here are my best tips to make the most out of the Disney FASTPASS Service:

    • Start your day early and if you happen to be staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, make sure to use Extra Magic Hour every day of your stay. Lately, FASTPASS tickets have been distributed during Extra Magic Hour for select attractions. Whether or not this is available to you, start by grabbing a FASTPASS first thing in the morning and then ride other attractions for which FASTPASS isn't offered while you wait for your return time.
    • Pay attention to the time listed on the FASTPASS ticket when you can get your next FASTPASS. I suggest obtaining another FASTPASS as soon as you are able so you are always holding a FASTPASS throughout the day.
    • Don't take a break or stop to eat a meal without getting a FASTPASS for something first.
    • Use the official Disneyland app to see attraction wait times and FASTPASS return times. This will help you determine your next course of action when it's time to grab another FASTPASS.
    • If you are traveling in a group, you can send one person with all the theme park tickets to a FASTPASS distribution kiosk to grab FASTPASS tickets for the entire group.
    I hope this information is helpful. With some smart planning and efficient use of the FASTPASS system, you can tour the parks like a pro! Please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have.
