    how do fast pass tickets work and are they worth it?

    Hey howdy hey April and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. During your August visit to the place "where dreams come true" you will experience all sorts of magic. From nostalgic trips on flying elephants and a Slinky Dog Dash in Andy's backyard to delicious treats and world-class Broadway style shows, Walt Disney World Resort is a place that is "practically perfect in every way."

    One of the exciting benefits associated with all Walt Disney World theme park tickets is the ability to make FastPass+ selections. These bits of pixie dust are not separate tickets and allow you to pre-arrange a time slot to enjoy attractions giving you reduced wait time in lines. For Guests of Disney Resort hotels, Disney Springs Area Hotels, or other select nearby hotels you may schedule up to three FastPass+ selections for every day of your trip up to 60 days prior to your hotel check-in. Guests staying off property may also schedule three FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance but only one day at a time. The first three FastPass+ selections must be scheduled in the same theme park. Once you are done with you three pre-scheduled selections you may choose more one-at-a-time on a rolling basis until the theme parks close or there a no more available. Additional selections may be booked at a different theme park than the original three. Popular attractions like Seven Dwarf Mine Train, Slinky Dog Dash, and Avatar Flight of Passage may even run out of FastPass+ selections before the day even starts so planning ahead is wise.

    Disney Dad Tip: FastPass+ selections can be modified, booked, and canceled from your My Disney Experience account and the My Disney Experience mobile app. Download the app to your smart phone where you will be able to view wait times, see Disney PhotoPass Service photos, get directions, make dining reservations, shop, and even, at select Quick-Service locations, use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. You may also modify FastPass+ selections at FastPass+ kiosks located in each theme park.

    In summary, FastPass+ is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    April, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
