    I am unclear about the availability of fastpass. Do the fastpass tickets carry an extra charge, or is every ticket eligible for fastpass?

    Hi Mary,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I cannot imagine how we ever survived without Fast Pass+!

    As long as you have valid theme park tickets, Fast Pass+ is currently included with the ticket price. If you are a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, you can start making your Fast Pass+ selections 60 days prior to arrival. If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can start making your Fast Pass+ selections 30 days prior to arrival. 

    Before your Fast Pass+ selection date (which is like NFL draft day in our house), be sure you have created a My Disney Experience Account and linked your theme park tickets to your account. If you are traveling with family and/or friends, you will also need to link their tickets to your account or you will need to link to their My Disney Experience Accounts if you want to make Fast Pass+ selections for them. 

    Review the Attractions List and prioritize the rides you wish to experience. Remember that some rides are incredibly popular and Fast Pass+ selection may be limited. So try making those Fast Pass+ selections first. Avatar Flight of Passage is a definite ride you should prioritize with Fast Pass+.

    Mary, I always go online as soon as our 60-day window arrives at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard time to make our Fast Pass+ selections. I can usually modify later, but the popular attractions quickly become unavailable.

    Mary, may the Force be with you as you use your Jedi powers to make those Fast Pass+ selections!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
