    Is it worth it to get a Fast Pass? Because I recently learned about Fastpass Plus+ and about how you can make 3 free reservations. So can one use the Disney Fastpass in addition to Fastpass Plus+? Or will it count as part of the Fast Past reservation?

    Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks for joining us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    FastPass+ is the upgrade to the previous FastPass system.  The original system used paper passes and was done by you by obtaining your passes from kiosks by your favorite attractions throughout the theme park; the new system is all electronic.  Both systems were free and included with all theme park admission to the Walt Disney World Resort.  You can now make selections for three attractions in the park of your choice up to 60 days prior to your arrival date using your My Disney Experience account.  Once you've used those three FastPasses, you may get one more pass at a time in any park (which means you may park hop) until closing.

    Jennifer, I think it is definitely worth it to get FastPasses for your favorite attractions. I do recommend making them early in the day so you can keep adding more attractions as the day goes on, maximizing your theme park experience.

    Please come back and visit us again with all of your vacation planning questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
