Tips and Hints for Disneyland FASTPASS

Hoppin’ Good News: We’re selling tickets to the Disneyland Resort! Take a look at our discounts on Disneyland tickets, including Park Hoppers for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Ribbit!

Hello frogs! You may have hopped here looking for information on Disney MaxPass. This new optional FASTPASS paid add-on debuted in July 2017. While MaxPass is a great tool to maximize your time in the park, we’re focusing on the free, traditional paper FASTPASS distribution in this post. We are also sharing a few tricks our frog squad has learned from using MaxPass that can be applied to free FASTPASS below.

We're always looking for tips to make the most of our time at the Happiest Place on Earth. One of the best ways to save time and get the most of your trip is through the Disneyland FASTPASS Service. It's FREE and available to all park guests.

While it can seem a little confusing at first, once you know how it works, it can mean the difference between a 10-minute wait (or less) and a two-hour wait. We like to think of it as one of our many tools for maximizing time at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure! With the information provided in this post, you can too.

The Disneyland FASTPASS Service allows you to skip the lines for some of your favorite attractions in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Parks. Today, we're walking you through all of the ins and outs of the Disneyland FASTPASS Service. Let's jump right to it!

How to Use Disneyland FASTPASS Service

RSRFastpass

A number of Disneyland Resort attractions (listed below) offer FASTPASS, which allows you to skip the regular line or reserve a spot at a show. To use the Disneyland FASTPASS Service, all you need to do is:

  1. Go to the FASTPASS distribution kiosk of the attraction you want to ride to see the standby and FASTPASS return time.*
  2. If the return time works for you, insert your admission ticket into the FASTPASS machine and you will receive a FASTPASS return time ticket.
  3. During your return time, visit the attraction FASTPASS return entrance with your park admission ticket for scanning.

* Some FASTPASS distribution kiosks are located in another location than the actual attraction.

So Long, Paper Disneyland FASTPASS Tickets

Disneyland FASTPASS paper reminder - Haunted Mansion

Ever since the FASTPASS system was placed inside Disneyland, the printed FASTPASS tickets were your ticket to ride, so to speak. As of June 2017, the paper FASTPASS tickets are simply a reminder of your return window. The actual FASTPASS is digitally stored on your park ticket or annual pass, so you’ll scan your ticket or pass at the ride or attraction at the appointed return time. Shows such as World of Color and Fantasmic! still use the paper FASTPASS system, so be sure to hold onto those FASTPASS tickets. You can manage all ride FASTPASSES through the Disneyland app (in case you want to cancel your plans or encounter a ride closure — see tips below.) Disney MaxPass is another way to reserve FASTPASS through the Disneyland app. Both MaxPass and regular FASTPASS reservations are linked to the user's park ticket or annual pass.

Key Points of the Disneyland FASTPASS Service

Roger Rabbit Cartoon Spin - Disneyland FASTPASS reminder

  • FASTPASS is now available during early entry, but the availability can vary.
  • All members of your party must have FASTPASSES to use the FASTPASS return entrance, but it is not necessary for your entire party to enter the FASTPASS distribution line. It saves more time if one person in your group enters the queue and obtains FASTPASSES for your whole party. Your designated "FASTPASS runner" just needs to have all of your group's admission tickets to obtain return time tickets.
  • If you send a runner to get the FASTPASSES with everyone’s park tickets, keep in mind that all guests’ park tickets must have been used to enter the park that day. You cannot acquire a FASTPASS for someone still asleep at the hotel. First come, first served. Park Hoppers need to have entered a park for the day.
  • You cannot obtain another FASTPASS until the start of the return time for your current FASTPASS or two hours since you obtained the FASTPASS have passed. It states on the FASTPASS at what time you will be eligible to acquire another FASTPASS.
  • If your return time is less than 30 minutes away from when you acquire a FASTPASS, you will be eligible to acquire the next FASTPASS after 30 minutes.
  • You can acquire another FASTPASS for a different ride even if you have not used the first FASTPASS, as long as you are eligible.
  • When an attraction is closed, the FASTPASS distribution is usually closed during that time, but not always.
  • The FASTPASS distribution machines at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are on a closed grid, which means if you hold a ticket for a ride in one park and are not eligible to acquire another ticket for another hour, you won't be able to acquire a ticket in the other park until that waiting period has ended.

 

Disneyland FASTPASS Tips

  • Some rides distribute FASTPASSES more quickly than others. Space Mountain at Disneyland and Radiator Springs Racers and Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure often run out of FASTPASSES early in the day.
  • Many rides at Disney California Adventure run through their FASTPASS distribution very quickly, so utilize them in the morning before they run out. Disneyland Park usually has many more FASTPASS choices available later in the evening.
  • Grizzly River Run, Goofy’s Sky School, The Haunted Mansion (but not Haunted Mansion Holiday), Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters, Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin (when there’s no fireworks that night) and “it’s a small world” can usually be your lowest priority FASTPASS acquisitions since they are often still distributing return times in the afternoon and evening.
  • Download the free Disneyland Park App to check ride wait times and current FASTPASS distribution return times before walking over to the distribution area.
  • Link your ticket to the Disneyland app to be able to manage your FASTPASS to cancel, scan at the FASTPASS return from your phone, keep track of Rider Switch, or take advantage of other perks (like knowing how many multiple experience/ride closure FASTPASSES you have). From the app’s home screen, click My Tickets, the Plus Sign at the upper right corner, then Link Tickets & Passes. You scan the barcode for the pass or ticket and now you can manage your FASTPASS reservations. This is such an improvement over the old days where you could not change your mind and cancel a FASTPASS.
  • Acquire your second pass (even if you have not used your first one yet). In the morning, plan to use your FASTPASS near the end of the return window (you can arrive up to 10 minutes late) and take advantage of the shorter morning lines for rides that do not offer FASTPASS.
  • Don't use FASTPASS if the standby queue is 30 minutes or less. That being said, we sometimes grab a FASTPASS for a short wait anyway because it makes the wait even shorter. We love skipping lines!
  • FASTPASS distribution can run out and frequently does during peak times for the most popular attractions.
  • The FASTPASS return time is strictly enforced. You will need to return within the designated return time in order to enter the FASTPASS queue. (You can usually use your FASTPASS up to 5 minutes early or up to 10 minutes late.)
  • FASTPASSES only are valid on the day they are issued.
  • If you hold a FASTPASS, but the ride is temporarily closed until the end of your return window — breakdowns do occur — then your FASTPASS becomes a Multiple Experiences pass. Present your park ticket at another FASTPASS attraction in the park to use it in place of your missed reservation. Ask a cast member which rides are eligible. This is the only way you can use your FASTPASS outside of your one-hour window. You can use it any time that same day in that same park until park closing.
  • Always look at your FASTPASS return tickets after you've printed them. Verify that each of your party members has received FASTPASSES. If you pull your next FASTPASS too soon after obtaining your previous FASTPASSES, you will be printed a ticket that says you are not yet eligible to obtain the FASTPASS.
  • A number of FASTPASS attractions also offer Single Rider Lines, which are usually just as short as FASTPASS and do not have time restrictions. If your party members are at least seven years old and don’t mind being separated on the ride itself, this is the way to go! Keep in mind that if the single rider line gets too long they will close the single rider line temporarily. Radiator Springs Racers and Space Mountain are our favorite go-to Single Rider lines. The Matterhorn tops the list too.
  • FASTPASS for World of Color is distributed near The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure. This the best (FREE!) way to ensure you get preferred viewing for this popular show. If you are park-hopping and want to hop back into California Adventure for the last show of World of Color, be sure to pick up a FASTPASS for it earlier in the day. They may require you to have a valid ticket and FASTPASS to get back into the park, especially if show time is right at park closing. (Note: world of Color under refurbishment until winter 2018-2019.)
  • Pick up a FASTPASS for a show like Fantasmic! or World of Color and hold onto it until show time. Obtaining a show FASTPASS will not affect your ability to acquire a ride FASTPASS as the systems are disconnected from each other.
  • If you have a baby, toddler or preschooler who is under 3 years old but able to see a show or go on a FASTPASS ride, you do not need a FASTPASS for him or her. Children under 3 do not have a ticket to put into the machine. Just tell the ride attendant, and he or she will wave you through as long as everyone else has valid FASTPASSES.
  • If you are traveling with a child who does not meet the height requirement for a ride, you can combine Rider Switch with FASTPASS.
  • Guests using Disability Access Service (DAS) can also utilize FASTPASS. When traveling with a friend or family member who uses DAS, we tend to schedule rides that don’t have FASTPASS with DAS and obtain FASTPASSES for eligible rides.
  • If some members of your party use MaxPass (sometimes one person will purchase MaxPass so the group can enjoy the included PhotoPass downloads) while the others use free FASTPASS, you should all use the FASTPASS distribution machines to get the same return window. Keep in mind the person with MaxPass may have a shorter window to wait before they are eligible to obtain a new FASTPASS. (The MaxPass longest wait is 90 minutes vs. 120 minutes for regular FASTPASS users.) Go by the longest waiting period in the group so that you can all obtain the next FASTPASSES at the same time.

We aren't arriving until 3PM for DCA. Is it possible to get a fastpass prior to entering the park? If not, sounds like MaxPass would be a bad idea to use for that day.

That is correct - you are not able to book a FastPass until you have entered the park.

We are going to Disneyland & Cal Adventure 6/2018. We have an infant and 7yr old with 4 adults. Would Max pass be advantageous? Seems as though its primarily for more of the "thrill rides" yet we would get the photo op advantage.

I thought I read the Max Pass cannot be used for Fantasmic or other shows like that- is this correct?

Do you know the current price of this pass?

Reply
May 3, 2018 at 1:39 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Ann!

We find the MaxPass worth it for the photos alone! But with four adults and a 7-year-old, we think you'd absolutely get your money's worth through all of the time you save not waiting in line.

Hoppy planning!

Thanks :)

I'm confused on one thing. If I go to a ride and get a FASTPASS, I can't go to a different ride and get another FASTPASS until the time on the ticket indicates I can, correct? Or can I run around getting FASTPASSES for as many rides I want when I get to the park? Just not the same ride twice in a row (until time indicated)? Which is it?

Reply
Feb 7, 2018 at 2:33 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Lynell!

You can collect multiple FastPasses within the given time. When going on the same ride twice, you have to use the first FP first before making a new reservation to go on the same ride again.

Our experience is that through the app We havent been able to get an additional fast pass until we have used the previous one. Is this different in any way if you go pick them up in person? Can a person actually go pick many fast passes (for different rides) in the morning one after the other without having to use the first attraction’s fast passes first?

Reply

Hi Carmen!

You always have to either wait the designated time allotted to you, OR use the previous FastPass before getting another.

Would we not be able to get fastpasses for Disneyland if we already got the fastpass for WoC? How fast do the fastpasses for WoC usually run out?

I've read that all members of the party need to be in the park to get a fastpass; so you can't send one person early in the morning to start getting all the passes for everyone.

I am wondering if this same issue happens between the parks. So if everyone enters Disneyworld we could start getting fastpasses there no problem...

Would it then be possible to have just one person go to California adventure to get those fastpasses, or would everyone have to at least enter the California park (they wouldn't be able to stay in the Disneyworld park)?

Reply
May 20, 2016 at 9:59 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Jason,

Yes, everyone needs to have entered the park for the ticket to work in the FastPass machine. One person can run to the machine once you are all in the park, but the tickets won't work unless they have bee activated by the front gate. Trust us, we have tried!

Any tips on the Dusneyland Parades? How early do I need to arrive, and are there preferred locations?

A Christmas Fantasy Parade 2:00 and 4:30

Paint the Night parade 8:45

Reply
Nov 30, 2015 at 9:08 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Jodi,

Usually if you want front row, you need to be in place at least an hour to an hour and a half in advance. Less if you are OK standing behind people. For Paint the Night, I would pick my spot based on where I would like to see the fireworks, because it is really hard to navigate the park before fireworks. If you want a castle or Main Street location, start keeping your eye on people claiming spots 90 to 120 minutes in advance. For Small World, you can go less than an hour. There are raised areas and steps on the right side of the street (when facing Small World) that offer a good view of the parade that you can often get 15 to 30 minutes before the parade (perhaps longer if it is really crowded that day). Small World is much less crowded, close to the fireworks and easier to see the projection. But it does not give you the iconic castle view or flying Tinker Bell.

Generally, first parades start at Small World and end by the park entrance and the later shows flow the opposite way.

So I discovered that I had to insert my park ticket with the magnetic strip facing upwards for the kiosk to work.

Also is the reason you can obtain a FASTPASS either once previous FASTPASS reservation window opens OR 2 hrs after issuance because if the previous FASTPASS reservation is for a really really popular ride that reservation window maybe 7 hrs from time of issuance. Thus the 2hr rule ensures you are not penalized and can obtain additional FPs?

Hi Ian,

Thanks for the tip! I assume you are right about the reason for the 2-hour rule, although there is no official word on this ;)
