    I am visiting in August from the UK but not staying in a Disney hotel. When I have chosen my fast pass rides how / where do I exchange my paper ticket for a fasspass card?

    Hi Paul!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask us another awesome question! It sounds like you are getting ready for a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I'm so happy to hear that you are planning on taking advantage of the FastPass+ System! FastPass+ reservations will definitely help you make the most of your time in the theme parks. When you use one of your FastPass+ reservations, you can enjoy your selected attraction, Character Experience or entertainment event using its FastPass+ queue, allowing you to bypass the Standby queue, which can save you quite a bit of time that would have been spent waiting in queues!

    When using the old FastPass System, Guests had to use paper FastPass tickets to enter the FastPass queue. Now, the system has been upgraded to the FastPass+ System and is totally integrated into My Disney Experience. That means you will be able to access your FastPass+ reservations using your theme park admission ticket or MagicBand and there is no longer any need to pick up a paper ticket! When you are ready to use your FastPass+ reservation, just touch your admission ticket or MagicBand to the Mickey touch points at the attraction or Character Experience FastPass+ queue entrance and you will be granted entry into the queue.

    Keep in mind that the FastPass+ System will allow you to make three advanced FastPass+ reservations for each day you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks and you can begin making your reservations 30 days in advance. Once you use your three advanced reservations, you can make additional reservations for other activities you would like to enjoy. You can make additional FastPass+ reservations by visiting one of the FastPass+ kiosks throughout the park or on the My Disney Experience mobile app.

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