    How do fastpasses work in DL? Will we get magic bands or is it more like the ticket system? Available at all rides? We are use to DW travel so wondering how things compare.

    Hi, Amy!

    Welcome, and thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. The traditional paper FASTPASS system is still in use at the Disneyland Resort theme parks. Disney’s FastPass+ system is unique to the Walt Disney World theme parks in Florida, and the My Disney Experience mobile app and MagicBands are intended for use there only as of this time. 

    To obtain a FASTPASS, visit the distribution area (generally located near the attraction entrance) for each attraction offering this service. Insert your valid admission ticket into the FASTPASS machine, and a FASTPASS ticket will be generated with your return time printed on it. For attractions, the return time will be a one-hour window, but for shows, you will receive a return time for a specific performance. Not all attractions offer FASTPASS service, but a list of those that do is available online and in the park guide maps you can pick up upon arrival at the resort. 

    I hope this helps, Amy. Please visit us again with any other questions you may have as your pixie-dusted planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
