    I’m still trying to understand the ends and outs of FastPasses. Once you arrive to your selected attraction how long is the wait to ride ?

    Hi Jasmine!
    Thanks for your question and for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    FastPass+ is one of the best things Disney theme parks has ever come up with for the guests!! It allows each guest at least three (3) pre-selected attractions of their choosing per day and further allows for additional FastPasses per day based on availability once the first three have been used. Therefore, it is much easier to get your "must-do" rides and attractions scheduled than ever before. The purpose of FastPass+ and the use of FastPasses, however, is NOT to allow you to walk right on to the ride (although this is sometimes exactly the case). The purpose is to allow guests who have pre-selected a particular attraction to arrive at a specific time and enjoy the attraction "with little to no wait." This can sometimes mean walking right on to a few minutes based on time of year and popularity of attraction. Either way, the FastPass Return lines are WAY shorter than the Standby Queue, which can sometimes exceed an hour or more.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical trip!!
