    If we reserve a fast pass time for an attraction, but we opt to go earlier than our time by going through the normal line for the attraction, will that create a problem for us or for you?

    Hi Timothy,

    I like how you think!  Actually not only is your proposal not a problem, it's a great strategy to use if you would like to experience an attraction more than one time on the same day.  My family has a few attractions that we like to enjoy twice and we use this method regularly.

    Your FastPass+ selection will only be redeemed when you touch your Magic Band or theme park ticket to the FastPass+ reader which is at the entrance of the FastPass+ queue.  The Mickey symbol will light up and the Cast Member will verify your FastPass+ selection before you enter the FastPass+ queue.  Simply walking by the entrance of the queue will not activate your FastPass+ selection because you need to physically touch your MagicBand or card to the reader.  If you utilize the standby queue, you will not activate your FastPass+ selection.

    Thank you for submitting your question to us Timothy!  Please let us know if you have any further Disney vacation planning questions.  We love to help!
