    How early do we need to be at the park to get the Fast pass? We are arriving late the night before so is it possible for 1 member of our family of 4 to go to the park early and exchange our pre purchased tickets and get fass pass for all 4 family members?

    Greetings, Kristen! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question. I am a FASTPASS fanatic so I would love to help you out!

    FASTPASS tickets are only available for the day you are in the parks and are usually offered as soon as the park opens. If you have access to any early admission options, FASTPASS tickets have started to be available during that early hour for some attractions. Additionally, everyone in your party must enter the park with their valid theme park tickets in order to start pulling FASTPASSES for select attractions, one attraction at a time. Once you are all in the park, you can then send one person with all the theme park tickets to obtain FASTPASS tickets at an attraction and this is usually the most efficient way when traveling with a group.

    Printed on the FASTPASS will be the return time for you to ride the attraction with minimal wait and a time when you can pull your next FASTPASS ticket. I recommend getting a FASTPASS for an attraction first thing in the morning and to continue obtaining further FASTPASSES as soon as you are able throughout the day. Use the Disneyland app to look up attraction wait times and FASTPASS return times before deciding where to head to next.

    I hope this clarifies things for you. Please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have. Have a magical day!
