    Hi all! What happens to your FastPass+ selections if an attraction is closed due to weather or unforeseen problems?

    Hi Diana,

    The exact situation you describe happened to me last week. I had a FastPass+ selection for the Jungle Cruise. Just as my ride time approached, a big thunderstorm hit the Magic Kingdom, forcing temporary closure of the Jungle Cruise. This meant that I could not ride during my assigned time. 

    The FP+ system recognized the ride closure during my return time and automatically converted my Jungle Cruise FP+ to an "any ride, any time" FP+. Without me having to do anything, my Jungle Cruise FP+ was converted into a general FP+ which allowed me to go on any FP+ attraction whenever I wanted that day. I ended up riding Haunted Mansion later in the day with the FP+ that had originally been intend for Jungle Cruise, but I could also have come back to the Jungle Cruise any time the ride was working. 

    My ride closure was due to weather, but the same thing would also happen if the ride were down due to mechanical/technical issues during your return time. 

    Some guests have reported that they have received an email notifying them about things like this, but I only learned about it when looking at the My Disney Experience app on my phone. If you do experience a ride closure, check your phone or tablet for information. You can also stop by any in-park FastPass+ kiosk for more information. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
