    Is the Fast Pass time a window or do I have to be there at a specific time?

    Hi Moises,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us!

    With each Fast Pass+ selection, you will receive a time window during which you can experience the attraction once. Normally, we book our initial three Fast Pass+ selections in the morning from 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon. After we have experienced that third attraction or the ride time window has expired, we use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to make an additional, fourth Fast Pass+ selection while in the park.

    We treat Fast Pass+ selections like golden tickets. We do not skip and/or miss those selections because they save us such valuable time in lines. So, it is important to plan your park schedule accordingly and give yourself plenty of time to get from one location to another. On one visit when our girls were 7-years old, I made a grave miscalculation in time and we arrived at Magic Kingdom about 40 minutes before the fireworks were scheduled to start but we had a Fast Pass+ selection in Princess Fairytale Hall that ended at 9:00 p.m. We almost did not make it to that Fast Pass+ because the crowds were nearly impassable near Cinderella Castle. 

    Moises, before we make our Fast Pass+ selections, we always prioritize the rides we want to experience. Then, on Fast Pass+ selection day, I am ready to go!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
