    Does magic kingdom offer the option to BUY fast passes? I see that we GET 3 free fast pass options per day with our paid ticket but would like to, if possible, buy fast passes that we can use the entire day(s). Thank you!

    Hi Christen!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Yes you are correct - with our Walt Disney World theme park admission tickets we receive three complimentary FastPass+ reservations per day, that can be made 60 days in advance if we are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, or 30 days in advance if we are staying elsewhere.  There is no option to purchase any FastPass+ selections, but there are ways to make the most of your FastPass+.   If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will have access to Extra Magic Hours - this is when select parks, on select days, will open an hour earlier for Disney Resort hotel guests only.  During this hour you can enjoy lower crowds and use the shorter standby lines for rides and attractions, keeping your FastPass+ reservations for later that morning, especially for the most popular attractions.  Using your My Disney Experience account, you may reserve your first three FastPass+ for any day, in any one theme park, and after these have been enjoyed you can select more FastPass+ for that day, one at a time, in any of the four theme parks. You can also make your selections at the FastPass+ Kiosks around the theme parks. The locations of these kiosks can be seen on the Guide Maps for each theme park: Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Scroll down the page until you see the link on the left, for the Guide Map. You will also see useful information about all the rides and attractions, and which of those are available for FastPass+.  It is a good idea to reserve your FastPass+ for the earlier part of the day, leaving time to select some more during the afternoon/evening, if they are available. 

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World. ~ Sue
