    We are visiting in October. We have never used Fast passes. We are staying at a Disney resort. There will be 6 of us total. So if we get 3 fast passes, does that mean we can all get on with 1 fast pass or is the one fast pass per person?

    Hi Amy,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Fast Pass+ selection day is a big day in our household!

    When you make your Fast Pass+ selections, you will make three initial Fast Pass+ selections for each person that has valid theme park admission. So, for example, when I make Fast Pass+ selections at Magic Kingdom, our first three choices usually are Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain. I make one Fast Pass+ for each person in our party for each attraction. Each person, therefore, would have three initial Fast Pass+ selections per park that we plan to visit.

    With each Fast Pass+ selection, you will receive a ride time window. Those ride time windows are usually in one hour increments. I like to book our Fast Pass+ selections early, so we do one Fast Pass+ from 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m., another from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and another from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon. Once we finish those initial ones (or the ride time windows have expired), we use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to make a fourth Fast Pass+ selection. 

    Amy, if you are making plans for everyone, be sure you have created a My Disney Experience Account and that you have added everyone in your party to your My Family & Friends List. Link your vacation package to that account and/or make sure your theme park tickets are linked. As a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, you can make your Fast Pass+ selections 60 days prior to arrival. I suggest making them online at 7:00 a.m. on day 60 prior to arrival because availability is not unlimited. I always make selections for the most popular rides first. For our upcoming trip, for example, I reserved our Fast Pass+ selections for Toy Story Land first!
