    we have made our fastpass selections and I can't remember, how do we use them? Do we get paper tickets or how does the attraction know we have fastpasses for that time and place?

    Hello Joan, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I love being able to utilize the FastPass+ system to minimize my wait time for some of my favorite rides and attractions. If you have selected FastPass+ experiences, your magical vacation must be right around the corner. Since you made your selections in your My Disney Experience account either online or by using the mobile app, all of your information is linked to your MagicBands or an Admission Card. If you are a guest staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you will receive a complimentary MagicBand for each member of your travel party listed on your reservation. When you enter your chosen theme park for the day, you will tap your MagicBand or card to a “touch point” to enter the park.

    FastPass+ is the new and updated system that works with your MagicBand or admission card. For example, let’s say you have a FastPass+ experience reserved for Slinky Dog Dash at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 1st for 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. You would approach the FastPass+ return entrance at the attraction after 10:00 a.m. and before 11:00 a.m. This entrance is usually near the Standby or regular line. You will tap your MagicBand or card on the touch point and a Cast Member will verify that your FastPass+ is valid for the attraction. You can proceed to the boarding area as directed by Cast Members. Keep in mind you may experience a minimal wait to enjoy your experience. No paper tickets needed, everything is electronically linked to your My Disney Experience account. You can view your FastPass+ selections in the mobile app in your plans. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
