    After doing our Fast Pass reservations, I notice all of the reservations are 1 hour time slots. What does that mean? Are we going to be waiting an hour even with the Fast Pass option? I just want to make sure we are where we are supposed to be on time.

    Hi Tonya ~

    I am a big fan of Disney FastPass+ service (FP+). It saves so much time and I know before my trip I will get to do some of my must do attractions or meet my favorite characters with a much shorter wait time.

    When you make your FP+ selections, most will give you a window with an hour return time. You can go to that attraction anytime during that hour and enter the FP+ queue. You will need to scan your MagicBand or card when you enter the FP+ queue and again closer to boarding the attractions. The wait time once you enter the FP+ queue is much shorter than the stand-by queue.

    If you choose a show as one of your FP+ selections, the window of your return time may be shorter than an hour as there is a set schedule for shows. Be sure to check your My Disney Experience to see your window of return time for live entertainment performances.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. It is indeed our pleasure to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
