    We are coming down for the first time in September, was just wondering if someone could explain a fast pass to me and also the cost of a fast pass. Please and thank you

    Hi, Amber!

    Thanks so much thinking of the Disney Parks Moms Panel to help plan your Disney vacation. 

    FastPass+ is a complimentary benefit for all guests who purchase theme park tickets. Each guest receives three initial FastPass+ selections per park per day for specific attractions and shows. FastPass+ allows you to be able to skip the regular standby line and head to a shorter line to experience the magic of the particular show or attraction that you selected in advance. When making your selection, you'll be shown a time for the day you have selected. Choose the time of day that you wish to enjoy that attraction/show and be sure to arrive at the FastPass+ entrance during the time that you picked. 

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, you can choose your FastPass+ attractions and shows 60 days before your check-in date. If you are staying off property, you can make your selections 30 days in advance.  For Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom, some of the most popular attractions and shows have a tier system. The top tier only allows you to choose one FastPass+ attraction or show and the next tier you can choose two. The Magic Kingdom is the only park that does not have FastPass+ tiers.

    All of your FastPass+ selections will be stored on your MagicBand or admission card through your My Disney Experience Account. If you find yourself in a bit of a tiff, and can't  just call 407-939-4357 and a Cast Member can help add those choices to your account. 

    Amber, I hope this gives you a better understanding of how the FastPass+ system works. If you have more questions, please visit with us again!

    Happy planning!
