    Can someone please explain the new fastpass system? I haven't been to Disneyworld in over a decade lol. So you only get three a day is that right? Please be as specific as possible because I find it highly confusing.

    Hi, Brandie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The FastPass+ system is one of my favorite benefits of being a Walt Disney World guest.

    It can be a little confusing, so here are 10 tips for how it works!

    1. Every guest that has park admission can use this complimentary service.
    2. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you can begin to make your FastPass+ selections 60 days before you check in.  If off Disney property, selections begin 30 days before you plan to visit.
    3. Guest can make up to 3 chooses at a time, in only 1 park.
    4. Be sure to select all guests who will be using the FastPass+ on that day.
    5. You can choose from dates and times available, which makes planning your Disney days easy!
    6. A timeframe will be given, typically an hour for attractions and 10 minutes for shows, for you to enter the FastPass+ line. All selections are stored on your MagicBand.
    7. After you have used those 3 initial selections, you can then select a 4th FastPass+ either in the same park or another park if you have a park hopper pass. 
    8. The 4th selection can be made using your My Disney Experience Mobile App or by visiting a kiosk inside the park.
    9. Once you have used the 4th FastPass+ selection, you can continue to pick FastPass+ choices one at a time after each use.
    10. Be sure to choose the most popular attractions or shows as soon as your 60 or 30-day window opens. These selections go fast, so at midnight be ready to make those selections. Check this out to see which FastPass+ selections to choose for each park!

    Brandie, I hope this helps you to understand how the FastPass+ system works! If you have more questions, please visit us again soon!
