    Explanation of fast passes, please?

    Hello, Diane,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel about FastPass+. These are a great time-saver as guests can make a reservation for when to enjoy an attraction, a show, and/or character greetings and often avoid longer waits in the standby lines.  Guests can select up to 3 FastPass+ reservations per day at one park.  Once you've used those, you can select another one based on availability by using the My Disney Experience App or any in-park kiosk. 

    For example, on our last trip my family was in Epcot for the first part of the day where we had a FastPass+ for Soarin', Spaceship Earth, and the Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival.  By mid-afternoon, we had used all of our FastPass+ reservations and went to the Magic Kingdom since we had the Park Hopper Option with our tickets. While we were riding the monorail over, I used my phone and the My Disney Experience App and found availability at the Haunted Mansion for us to enjoy that upon our arrival.  Once that was done, I continued to check for other FastPass+ options. As long as there is availability, you can continue to make FastPass+ reservations.  It's a great perk!

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
