Starting March 31, Off-Site Disney Guests Can Make Advance FastPass+ Reservations

by Leap on March 27, 2014

We're doing the Frog Family Hoppy Dance today because there's very good news to report for many of you headed to the Walt Disney World Resort soon!

Starting March 31, guests not staying at a Disney World resort can make FastPass+ reservations up to 30 days in advance. Guests will need to create MyMagic+ accounts in My Disney Experience AND link their tickets in order to make the advance FastPass+ reservations. Guests can make or modify reservations using the website, mobile app or at the kiosks.

FastPass+ RFID tickets

While this gives resort guests a little bit of a leg up since they can make reservations  up to 60 days in advance, 30 days is the same window that was given to annual passholders. This change should ease up the congestion at the FastPass+ kiosks in the parks, since up until now non-resort guests could only make day-of reservations at park kiosks.

FastPass+ lines

As a reminder, our tickets are 100% RFID and FastPass+ enabled, so you are all set to make advance reservations and enjoy touch-to-enter functionality at the park entrances and FastPass+ attractions!

Are you as excited as we are about the news that all Disney guests will be able to make advance FastPass+ reservations!? What questions do you have?

Hoppy FastPass-plus-ing!

What a pleasant surprise; thank you for sharing the great news. We recently purchased 'your' 5 day park hopper passes and our first day in Disney will be March 31. Thanks

Fast pass is great but we have been panicked when some of our fast pass reservations were missing when we checked thru the Disney app on our phones and iPads. Don't trust the app- use the website directly

This is AWESOME news!! We are headed there mid-May with our 2 adult children, their spouses & our 5 year old granddaughter. The 4 of us were there in 1996 & excited to go back. The other 3 have NEVER been so we'll have a blast! I was wondering though since I purchased ALL 7 tickets do each of us have to register them in order to get Fast Passes or can I do that for all of us & what is the Fast Pass daily limit? Thank You!!

Hi Donna,

So excited for you and your family!

Each of the tickets will need to be linked in My Disney Experience. You will be able to make 3 FastPass+ reservations per day per person (in one park). It sounds like it's going to be an awesome trip!

How exactly do you link the tickets to the My Disney Experience?

Hi Kathy,

Once you create an account, you will then go to Link Tickets in My Reservations and Tickets and follow the instructions.

We are going end of may with a large group. When linking our tickets to fast pass should we do it all under one account? There are rides we want to do together that we want fast pass for but some rides that some what to do and some don't that also require fast pass. For example the little girls want to meet princesses while the boys want to do tower of terror. Can you I digital each ticket under one account?

I meant to say can you link each ticket individually?

Hi Becky,

Yes, you can link each ticket under one account, and you will have the ability to choose separate FP+ selections for part of your group.

Hi we have a group going and some are staying on the grounds and some are not. How likely is it that the available times for Fast pass will be available 60 days in advance and 30 days in advance? Should I wait and do everyone's FP at 30 days so we can make sure we all have the same times?

Hi Susie,

For the most popular attractions, it's unlikely that all of the times will be available at 30 days and some may not be available at all.

Depending on what is easier, you might book your first group at 60 days and then try to match the times/attractions for the group at 30 days.

Must we already have our tickets mailed to us in order to use the 30 days in advance feature? Or once we buy them can we automatically link up our tickets?

I guess what I am asking is: Can we link up our tickets the second we buy them, or do we need to wait the 10 days for them to be shipped to receive an ID number?

Hi Randell,

Sorry for the delay, but this comment was caught in our spam filter. For security reasons, we cannot provide your ticket information to access FastPass+ before the tickets are shipped. In the future, you can upgrade your shipping method to get them faster.

What time can you start making fast pass reservations at the 30 day mark. Is it midnight or 6am like the dining reservations?

I am staying off-site and am quickly approaching my 30 day out period. My question is once I hit my 30 day period can I make fast pass selections for my entire week stay or can I only do that day.

Hi Ashley,

You will need to make FastPass+ selection per day.

I am coming to Disney world in january. Will have tickets by Thanksgiving. How soon can I make fast pass reservations_?

Hi Susan,

If you are staying offsite you can make reservations up to 30 days in advance and 60 days in advance if you are staying at the resort.

Thanks for the info... I have a question also. We are staying off resort in January and if a fastpass we want is already unavailable 30 days prior, will we have the opportunity to get one in the park the day we go or are we just out of luck completely?

Hi Angie,

I would keep trying every day until your trip, sometimes more availability gets added or there are cancellations. You can also try to make the reservation for one person, and if successful, you would then try to copy it to your other party members.

So I'm still a bit confused. Can you do fastpass+ with a regular ticket or do you have to have a magic band?

Hi Mandy,

Yes, you can do FastPass+ with a regular ticket or MagicBand.

1. Does the 30 days (for Fast Pass +) refer to 30 days before your first day at a Disney park?

2. Do you have to book for each day 30 days before?

Reply
FrogBlog Feb 16, 2015 at 10:01 a.m.

Hi EC,

The window is 30 days in advance of the day you want to make reservations, and yes, you would have to book for each day 30 days before. This is not the case for guests staying at a Disney World resort. They can book 60 days in advance of their trip, and book a full seven days at one time.

Keep hopping!
