    We are surprising our 14 year old daughter for her birthday with quick trip to Disney. I am sure a lot has changed since the last time we were there when she was 4! I am a little confused about the Fast Pass. Is there an additional charge to use it?

    Hello Nicki!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Yes, a lot has changed in the last 10 years at Walt Disney World Resort. The good news is that my 14-year-old still loves it as much as my 6-year-old does and it's even more magical!

    There is no extra charge for FastPass+ with the purchase of a Walt Disney World theme park ticket. Disney FastPass+ service lets you reserve access to select attractions, entertainment and more. With the purchase of a ticket or Annual Pass, you can make selections as early as 30 days before you arrive—starting at 7:00 AM Eastern Time. Plus, if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to check-in for the entire length of your stay. 

    Here are some steps to use FastPass+:

    Add people to your Family & Friends list to enable you to reserve access to FastPass+ attractions and entertainment for them.

    Link your vacation package, link your tickets or link your annual pass to your Disney account. If you purchased online, the package, tickets or passes may have been linked automatically.

    Reserve access to FastPass+ attractions and entertainment for each day that you have a valid theme park ticket linked to your Disney account.

    Visit the theme park on the day that you have FastPass+ selections.

    Go to the FastPass+ entrance or viewing area for the selected attraction or show during the designated arrival window time.
    You can schedule 3 FastPass+ selections ahead of time per day. Once you use those, you can add one more at a time with the mobile app or at a FastPass+ kiosk around the parks.

    Wishing your daughter the best days ever on her birthday trip!
