    traveling to DW with my family and parents, They aren't going to use the fast pass. Do they loose out on those fast-pass or can my kids use them. Also if my parents use their fast pass for character sighing can my kids use them for that.

    Hi Crystal!

    From one Crystal to another - welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are getting ready for a magical family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. I hope you are planning on adding Memory Maker to your trip so you can capture and save all of the incredible memories you make with your loved ones!

    The FastPass+ System is great because it allows you to make the most of your time in the theme parks! Each Guest can make three advanced FastPass+ reservations for attractions, entertainment and Character Experiences on their "must-do" list, where you can use the FastPass+ queue for the experience and bypass the Standby queue. FastPass+ reservations are linked to each Guest's ticket via My Disney Experience. Unfortunately, tickets and their associated FastPass+ reservations are non-transferrable, so your kids will not be able to use your parent's FastPass+ reservations.

    Did you know that there are quite a few options for FastPass+ reservations that aren't attractions? Your parents can enjoy a variety of Character Experiences and entertainment using their FastPass+ reservations if they aren't interested in attractions. They are welcome to enjoy FastPass+ reservations for Character Experiences with your kids, but keep in mind that every Guest over 3 years old who will be enjoying the attraction, entertainment or Character Experience using the FastPass+ queue must have a FastPass+ reservation.

    We often travel to Walt Disney World Resort with my parents and they don't always want to ride all of the thrilling attractions that my kids, my husband and I do. So sometimes we split up and my parents use a FastPass+ reservation for something they are interested in while the rest of the family takes a trip on Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain or Space Mountain. We have also scheduled FastPass+ reservations so my parents can enjoy a Character Experience or slower-paced attraction with my kids, while my husband and race to Aerosmith's concert on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.

    Let us know if we can help you again as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
