    If you miss an arrival window for a FastPass, does the FastPass expire or can it still be used after the end of the arrival window?

    Hi, Karen!

    Your FastPass+ is valid for the one hour you have it scheduled. There is a bit of "flex time" on it, as cast members usually allow you entry about 5 minutes early and up to about 15 minutes late. After that grace period, you can rebook a missed FastPass+ selection.  Your booking options will be based on availability, and usually the options by mid-day are fairly limited. I would not plan on being able to rebook a Toy Story Mania or Space Mountain FastPass, as they will most likely be completely booked.

    If you are flexible with your attraction choice and time, you might get something fun where you can use that FastPass+ and zip right through the line!

    Your best plan is to arrive during your scheduled window of time. However, Mickey Mouse knows things come up, so feel free to rebook any missed activities. The system is set-up so you can make the changes easily, so take advantage if needed.

    Have a magical vacation in Walt Disney World!
