    how to use the fastpass

    Oh my goodness, Nancy! I'm so excited to see you will be at Walt Disney World Resort tomorrow! I know you are going to have a magical time!

    I'm so glad you are asking about FastPass+ because it's an amazing service that will help you maximize your time in the theme parks!

    While you can wait to make your FastPass+ selections when you arrive tomorrow, I highly encourage you to make your selections today as your availability for all attractions will be greater the earlier you make your selections. Guests can begin making their FastPass+ selections 30-60 days prior to their arrival date.

    If you wait until you are in the theme park, you can make them either on your mobile device using your My Disney Experience mobile app (be sure to download that now) or at a FastPass+ Kiosk. To begin, make sure you and your traveling party create your My Disney Experience accounts. Then, link everyone to your Family & Friends list. Link your theme park tickets to your accounts and then the fun can begin! You can reserve up to three FastPass+ selections per day in one theme park. Once you have redeemed your initial three FastPass+ selections, you can continue making FastPass+ selections, one at a time, throughout the day. You can also make FastPass+ selections for that day at other theme parks if you have a theme park ticket with the Park Hopper option.

    To make your FastPass+ selections, sign in to your My Disney Experience account and click on "Get FastPass+." Then click on "Add FastPass." Select the Guests accompanying you and click on "Next." Select your date and theme park. From there, you will see the attractions and times available. Make all of your selections for each day and then click on "No Thanks, I'm Done." Once you are finished, you will be able to view all of your FastPass+ selections.

    If your plans change, you can modify your FastPass+ selections. FastPass+ has transformed the way we vacation. I know you will love it!

    If you have any questions when you are in the theme parks, there are Cast Members available at the FastPass+ Kiosks to assist you with your planning. When you arrive at each attraction for which you have made a FastPass+ selection, scan in using your MagicBand or Admission card at the FastPass+ queue. Then you can enjoy the attraction with a shorter wait time! I'm so excited for you!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Enjoy every magical moment of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
