    How well would my trip go without using fastpass+? Just don't wanna be on a schedule

    Hello, Kimberly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We are so honored you have chosen us to help you plan your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! 

    As you begin learning about the Disney FastPass+ service, you might think at the beginning that this will put too many parameters and restrictions on your day at your favorite Disney Theme Park.  However, I am here to tell you from experience that using the Disney FastPass+ service will give you MORE freedom, and here are the reasons why.

    1. When you reserve a FastPass+, you are essentially holding your place in line for an attraction. You can bypass the stand-by line and ride a very popular attraction MUCH quicker than it would take you to wait in the stand-by line. This means you will have MORE time to ride other attractions or see and experience even more of what Walt Disney World has to offer.

    2.  You can plan your Fastpass+ reservations for early in the morning, in the afternoon, or all throughout the day. This will give you the flexibility to enjoy a Disney Park AND be able to ride the attractions you want to experience. For example, my family always arrives at a Disney Theme Park right when it opens. We do this because the crowds are much lower at the beginning of the day. We ride as many attractions as we can, and then I will reserve our first FastPass+ by late morning.  I will plan our FastPass+ reservations until mid afternoon.  From there, we can leave and go back to our resort OR reserve more FastPass+ reservations for the day.

    Having a plan actually HELPS in making sure your family will have an UNFORGETTABLE time at Walt Disney World! If you have other questions about the Fastpass+ service or anything else, please let us know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
