    Can you purchase more fast pass for a day or do you just get 3 at each park per day?

    Hi Samantha,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! There are a few things to know when making FastPass+ selections for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. First, be sure you know when you are eligible to start making FastPass+ selections. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can make your FastPass+ selections 60 days before your check-in date. You can also make your selections for your length of stay or up to 14 days, providing you have valid park tickets for those days. If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can make FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance. You will have to make your FastPass+ selections day by day instead of all at once. 

    Second, you can make 3 FastPass+ selections in one park per day in advance. You can make these selections for any time of day you choose as long as there are available selections. Some people choose to start their FastPass+ selections later in the morning in the hopes lines will not be as long first thing in the morning. Others like to schedule their 3 advance FastPass+ selections as early in the day that they can in the hopes of securing same-day FastPass+ selections.

    Which brings us to our third point about same-day FastPass+ selections. Once you have used your 3 advance FastPass+ selections, you can choose a new FastPass+ selection on the My Disney Experience app. You can start looking for a 4th FastPass+ selection as soon as you tap in for your 3rd selection with your MagicBand or card. You can continue to make FastPass+ selections one at a time for the rest of your day. 

    Fourth, we need to talk about park hopping. If you choose to park hop, you will need to consider if you want to make your FastPass+ selections in the first park you plan to visit or the second. You could also choose to make one or two FastPass+ selections in one park and then once you tap in for your last selection, you can start looking for same-day FastPass+ selections in your next park. 

    To sum up, you can make three FastPass+ selections in advance. You cannot purchase additional FastPass+ selections in the parks but you can make same-day FastPass+ selections after you have used your advance selections. Policies and procedures are always subject to change so it's a good idea to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any announcements as your vacation nears.

    Samantha, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you will let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions before your visit. 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
