    Can someone please explain what is a FastPass? Is it the same as fast lane passes at any other theme park, that let you skip the line?

    Hi Joita, 

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question.  There is so much to see and experience at Walt Disney World Resort, FastPass+ is a way to ensure you experience your must do attractions with little to no wait time.  

    FastPass+ allows guests to choose three attractions per day prior to arriving at Walt Disney World Resort.  It comes with every Theme Park Ticket and is no extra cost.  They will be linked to your MagicBand or Theme Park Ticket, so it isn't anything extra to worry about.  There are only a certain amount of FastPass+ Selections available per day for each attraction in order to keep the wait times down, so I would recommend booking your selections prior to arriving.  Guests are able to make FastPass+ Selections on the day of your visit, but typically all of the most popular attractions will not be available on the day of your visit.  You will need a valid Theme Park Ticket linked to your My Disney Experience Account for every guest that you are planning on making FastPass+ Selections for. 

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, FastPass+ Selections can be made using your My Disney Experience Account 60 days prior to your arrival or if you are staying off property, FastPass+ Selections can be made 30 days in advance.  When you are at Walt Disney World Resort, and you have used all three of your FastPass+ Selections don't forget to visit a kiosk and make an additional FastPass+ Selection if you would like.  Additional FastPass+ Selections can be made one at a time after your initial three have been redeemed.  

    I hope that helps, Joita.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always here to help.
