    How do you get in a standby line if fast pass + is not available?

    Welcome Home, Jeffry!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about attraction standby queues for Walt Disney World Resort rides and attractions.

    Simply put, the standby queue for an attraction is the traditional, or regular, queue. In a standby queue, you stand in line and wait for your turn to experience the Walt Disney World Resort attraction of your choice. All Walt Disney World Resort rides and attractions have standby queues — even those that do not have a FastPass+ queue.

    You do not need to take any additional steps in order to enter a standby queue. You simply enter the line when you arrive at the attraction. Additionally, standby queues will have approximate “wait times” posted at the front of the line. These wait times let you know approximately how long you will be standing in the standby queue.

    Jeffry, I was recently unable to grab a FastPass+ for Avatar Flight of Passage. Fortunately, I will be able to utilize the standby queue in order to experience this very popular attraction and fly a banshee in Pandora!

    Disney Mom Tip: In order to make wait times more enjoyable, many standby queues have fun, interactive experiences for you to enjoy while you wait! Examples of attractions that have interactive queues are The Haunted Mansion and Dumbo the Flying Elephant.

    If you have any additional questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are always here to help you plan you next Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
