    How exactly does FastPass work and what rides do you recommend using FastPass on?

    Hi Elisabeth! FastPass+ adds pixie-dust to your vacation by allowing you to maximize your time in the theme parks. The service is complimentary and gives you the ability to schedule times to visit attractions prior to your vacation starting. With FastPass+, you decrease your wait time for popular attractions, shows and Character greetings giving you more time to enjoy in the theme parks. 

    To make FastPass+ selections, begin by adding everyone in your traveling party to your Family & Friends list in your My Disney Experience account. Then, be sure your vacation package and/or theme park tickets are linked to each Guest. Beginning at 7:00 AM, up to 30 days in advance of your visit, you can begin making FastPass+ selections. If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can begin making selections 60 days prior to your arrival.

    Initially, you can make three selections in one theme park per day. Once you have redeemed your 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.

    The FastPass+ selections you make may vary based on the wishes of the Guests traveling with you. When my kiddos were younger, we selected many shows and Character greetings. As they enter the tween-age years, our focus has shifted to other attractions including Avatar Flight of Passage, Test Track, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Slinky Dog Dash. 

    Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
