    When will fastpasses restart? We arrive July 31.

    Hi Katherine!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    I'm so happy to hEAR you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation right around the corner! Every day, you're one step closer to making memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    At this time, as Walt Disney World is still in a time of phased reopening, select Guest offerings have been paused indefinitely. This includes FastPass+, which is currently suspended until further notice. Walt Disney World is taking an intentional, gradual, and careful approach as to when to reintroduce certain offerings and experiences, and I'm sure that careful consideration is being given to reinstating FastPass+, as it is very popular with Guests (including me!). 

    Currently, Standby queues are being used for all attractions and shows. The FastPass+ queue is reserved for those Guests using Disability Access Services (DAS), and for Guests who have purchased private VIP Tours. I just returned from a Walt Disney World Resort vacation yesterday and can assure you that the Standby queues move very steadily, and the wait times were not unreasonable. I found that the actual time we spent waiting in line was typically a few minutes shorter than the wait times posted outside of the attractions! You can check wait times using the My Disney Experience mobile app, and there are apps available that compare posted vs. actual wait times. (While I can't link to them here, they are easily found through a quick Google search, if you're interested in checking them out.)

    I hope Guests will be able to utilize the FastPass+ system in the future, and I am patiently waiting for any kind of announcement about bringing it back. I'll be keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any announcements or breaking news about Guest benefits and experiences. 

    Thanks again for visiting planDisney. We love sharing tips and advice to help add a bit of extra magic to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Please let us know if you have any more questions before you arrive!
