When Can I Book My Disney FastPasses? Plus Answers to Other FastPass+ FAQs

by Leap on October 1, 2020 1202 Orlando

A note from Mommy Frog: During Walt Disney World's initial reopening phase, FastPass+ service has been temporarily suspended. For all of the details to know before you go, hop over to our full reopening post!

FastPass+ FAQs - PinterestAs long-time Walt Disney World Resort experts, ticket-sellers and adventure-loving frogs, we help families plan their vacations by sharing key information. FastPass+ is one of those key pieces of information! We have been answering many questions about FastPass+ since its debut in 2014 — and we're still going! This is a compilation of answers to customers' most frequently asked questions about FastPass+ (including when you can book your FastPasses!).

To the unfamiliar, FastPass+ may seem overwhelming. This service simply allows guests to pre-book rides and entertainment so that they skip the regular lines. While pre-booking rides and entertainment — in some cases, up to 60 days in advance of your trip — sounds complicated, it doesn't have to be. Using FastPass+ is one of the best ways to experience the most in-demand rides with little to no wait! We are answering these Disney FastPass+ FAQs to make things as easy as possible, and leave you toadally ready to tackle your vacay. If you already know the basics, check out our FastPass+ tips! Let's hop to it!

Disney FastPass+ Frequently Asked Questions

What is FastPass+?

FastPass+ is Disney's reservation system that allows guests to book advance reservations for experiences and attractions in the park. Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels can make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance of check-in for their entire length of stay. Guests staying at select hotels (including in the Disney Springs area) also get this benefit. These include:

Guests staying off-site can make reservations up to 30 days in advance of each day of their theme park visit. (Psst! You can now book your Orlando hotel with us at a discount!)

Is FastPass+ free?

Yes, it is free for everyone visiting the parks who has valid admission.

What are MagicBands?

MagicBands are rubber bracelets that contain an embedded RFID (radio frequency identification) chip and function similarly to regular RFID park tickets. They both offer touch-and-go functionality at the park entrances, at FastPass+ attraction queues and with PhotoPass photographers. The bracelets are more practical since you don't have to fumble in your pocket or backpack for tickets every time you enter a park or use FastPass+. Just make sure the Mickey head on the bracelet, which contains the RFID chip, touches the Mickey head RFID reader!

MagicBands offer additional (optional) functionality if you are a resort guest: They serve as your room key (talk about pixie dust!). You also can associate a credit card with the band so that you can touch to pay for purchases around the property after you have entered your pin. Non-resort guests who purchase MagicBands cannot add credit card functionality to their bands.

FastPass+ FAQs - Expedition Everest Queue Interaction

MagicBands have even more fun uses for all guests who wear them in the parks. First, your ride photos and video are often automagically uploaded to your My Disney Experience account, such as on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Tower of Terror. For other attractions, such as Expedition Everest or Splash Mountain, you'll need to touch your MagicBand to the RFID readers at the ride exit's photo area to associate your photos with your account. Second, Disney offers personalization in queues and on rides for those wearing their bands. At Expedition Everest, for example, you might see your name on one of the Himalayan advertisements before you ride. There is more personalization at it's a small world and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.

FastPass+ FAQs - its a small world Ride Interaction

Do I need a MagicBand?

No, physical tickets offer the same functionality as MagicBands. But you may find that MagicBands are more convenient for entering the parks and FastPass+ queues and having photos taken by PhotoPass photographers since you don't have to search in a backpack or pocket for tickets. You also get all of the benefits mentioned above!

How do I get a MagicBand?

FastPass+ FAQ - MagicBand Vacation Box

If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, all members of your party will be given MagicBands free of charge. Depending on how far in advance you book your resort stay, you will have the option of choosing the colors of your bands and having them shipped to you (not available in all countries). These will be personalized with each party member's name, and you can also choose to upgrade to certain themes for a minimal charge. As we mentioned earlier, your MagicBand serves as your room key and can be used to make purchases at the resort and in the parks during your hotel stay. Guests using Disney's Magical Express transportation will also use them at check-in, so you shouldn't put them in your checked baggage if you are flying to Orlando.

If you are not staying at a resort, you have the option of purchasing the bands starting at $14.99 plus tax in the park or online. You no longer have to link your MagicBand in the park, so you can purchase bands as gifts or to use later.

How far in advance can I make a FastPass+ reservation?  FastPass+ FAQs - Modifying a Reservation

Disney has two windows of opportunity for guests to book FastPass+ reservations. Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can book FastPass+ tickets 60 days before their check-in date and book for the entire length of stay. Non-resort guests have a 30-day booking window, and need to book for each day of their trip (rather than in one fell swoop like Resort hotel guests).

It really helps to have your park plans in place before that window hits, and you'll need to have already purchased tickets. You'll need to decide which day you will visit each park. It also helps to do a little research so you can book the most popular experiences and rides, or those most important to your family. Keep in mind that you may only reserve three FastPass+ attractions per day in advance. You can make additional FastPass+ reservations in the parks after you've used your first three (or the return times have passed). 

On the day your booking window opens, you'll be able to book FastPass+ reservations starting at 7 a.m. EST. So, if you're on the West Coast and want to book right away, you'll need to be up and ready at 4 a.m. (Hint: Grab your coffee or caffeinated beverage of choice before your booking window opens!) It isn't toadally necessary to book right when your window opens unless your trip is during a very busy time (such as the holidays), you're not staying on-site and/or you want to secure reservations for a very in-demand FastPass+ attraction (such as Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, Avatar Flight of Passage or Slinky Dog Dash). 

If you're staying at a Disney World Resort hotel, you can make your FastPass+ selections from your first day of check-in for your entire length of stay (up to 14 days) with valid park admission. If your stay is longer than two weeks, you can make FastPass+ reservations for up to 14 days. Note that the 30-day window does not offer this option. You must book each day. We definitely recommend staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel during your visit to take advantage of that window!

How do I make FastPass+ reservations?

FastPass+ FAQs - How to Book FastPass+

When you have your tickets, you will need to create an account on Disney World's My Disney Experience website in order to make FastPass+ reservations. To make reservations for friends and family, you will need to add their name (such as for a child) or send an email invitation to connect through a Disney account. Everyone whom you wish to make FastPass+ reservations for must have valid tickets linked to their account. Once you and your party members' accounts are linked, you then need to link your tickets and/or hotel stay. While the process is fairly straightforward, we have found it is easier to use the app since you can actually scan your ticket number rather than having to key it in manually. For those of you who are close to your FastPass+ booking window, once your order has been processed, you can contact our customer service to obtain your ticket number to link your tickets in My Disney Experience.

Once your tickets are linked, you will be walked through the process of making FastPass+ reservations. Once online, you can book your three daily reservations, one at a time. You also get to see all of the available time slots within the morning, afternoon or evening. This is a big plus that makes it easier for guests to book separate reservations for their party members. For example, while Tad and I ride Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Mommy Frog and Lily split and use a FastPass+ for Toy Story Mania! If your family or group plan to make any of the same FastPass+ reservations, we recommend you make these first.

Can I still make advance FastPass+ reservations if I plan to purchase a MagicBand later?

Yes. If you decide to purchase a MagicBand later, you can still make FastPass+ reservations in advance and those selections will be stored with your My Disney Experience profile and linked with your ticket and MagicBand. Your tickets will continue to function even if you use a MagicBand.

How many reservations can I make?

FastPass+ FAQs - Epcot FP+ Kiosks

Guests can make three advance reservations for rides and experiences per day via the My Disney Experience website, the app or the in-park kiosks. Those three reservations must be made for use in one park only. Note that at EPCOTDisney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom, a tiered structure is in place for the most in-demand attractions. Guests can make only one selection from the Tier 1 attractions and entertainment and two selections from the Tier 2 list at those parks. You can make additional FastPass+ reservations after you've used your first three (or the return times have passed) in the park using the app or an in-park kioskMagic Kingdom does not have a FastPass+ tiered system, but the most in-demand rides, such as Space Mountain and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, get booked quickly.

How do I use FastPass+ in the park?

FastPass+ FAQ - Carousel

When you're ready to use your FastPass+ reservation in the park, head to the attraction or entertainment experience during your allotted one-hour window. Look for the FastPass+ queue at the attraction and touch your ticket or MagicBand to the Mickey RFID reader for entry. You may be asked to scan your MagicBand or ticket a second time as you move further up the queue.

Just three reservations per day?

As mentioned above, after using your first three reservations in the park, you can obtain more. This can be at any park, and it can be at any attraction (even if you've already booked FastPass+ for Tier 1 attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot or Disney's Animal Kingdom). Once you have used that FastPass+ selection or the window has passed, you are free to make another selection. And so on, and so on.

Booking additional FastPass+ reservations can be done using the My Disney Experience app. (Just make sure to update to the latest version of the app.) One important note is that you no longer need to physically be present in the park you wish to make reservations for. This is a big plus for park hoppers! So you could be in EPCOT, but make your reservation for Magic Kingdom if you have park hoppers or are an annual passholder.

You can also use the in-park kiosks to make reservations. If you do use a kiosk, know that not not everyone in the party must be present to add the FP+ selection as long as you are all connected using My Disney Experience.

What if I am late/need to modify my reservations?

If you are late by a few minutes on your slotted time for an attraction, you should still be allowed to enter the attraction. If you are going to be more than a few minutes late, you should re-book the experience for a later time. You can modify reservations using the website, app or in-park kiosks. Late entry is left up to the discretion of cast members, so it pays to be kind and on time!

FastPass+ FAQ - MagicBands in France

Does everyone in our friends/family account need to complete all three FastPass+ reservations for the day before we can reserve a fourth?

The FastPass+ reservations are tied to an individual ticket. If someone in your group only uses one FastPass+, that doesn't affect you from getting your fourth after your other three have been used (but it will affect them!).

Which rides and attractions should I use FastPass+ for?

This is a great question! Your "best" choices toadally depend on individual family preferences (and availability, of course). That said, on our FastPass+ Tips post, we outline our top three FastPass+ recommendations in each park. If you hop over to our Park Plans page, we outline even more priorities for each park.

Hi there,

My friend made a reservation at a disney resort, and is a resident of FL so they are getting the discount for their tickets. Since I'm not a resident, I have to get my own ticket. If I link to him via friends&family, will he be able to make a fastpass reservation for me at the 60 day window?

Hi Ryan!

At this time, FastPass service is suspended. However, previously, the early FastPass window was connected to your room reservation - if you are on the same room reservation at a Disney Resort hotel (or another eligible resort), you'll be able to take advantage of that early booking window! If you are not staying at an eligible hotel, then unfortunately you'd need to wait for the 30 day window. Hope this helps!

Two questions:

1. We are planning to stay a week in a Disney resort hotel and then in the second week have family join the trip who will be staying off site. Is there a way we can book their tickets to avail of the 60 days window for us AND them?

2. If we buy a 14 day ticket and stay the first week in a resort hotel and the second week off site, will the 60 day window apply to the whole two weeks?

Hi Gavin!

The 60-day FastPass window only applies while you're staying on-site (and only for those who are linked in My Disney Experience as guests of a Disney Resort hotel). So unfortunately, the 60-day window will only apply to you during that first week on-site. For now, though, note that FastPasses are temporarily suspended - we'll be sure to update as soon as they are back in operation!

Hi, we are going December 4th this year! For 7 days staying off site. Assuming fast passes are back in play by than. So we have 7 days at Disney. I will wake up every morning at 5 AM starting November 4th 30 days before, but we are doing 4 days, taking 1’day off, than doing our last 3 days. I read on the tickets they are valid to use the 7 days within a 10 day period. So would

I book daily for the first 4 days than not book the next day? Than book for the last 3 day’s each day? How will I communicate I guess what days I will be using my seven day tickets for?

Reply
Jun 8, 2020 at 8:58 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Alex!

Once you link your tickets to My Disney Experience, the system will recognize your booking window automagically. As you mentioned, you'd log in to reserve your FastPasses day by day if you are staying off-site, which means you'd just skip the days you aren't hopping into the parks. When booking, you'll see a calendar pop up; the days you're eligible to reserve are a different color than those you are ineligible for (either because your booking window isn't available yet, or because you've used your allocated, ticketed days). You'd then choose the date you're hoping to book, make your reservations, and voila! Let us know if we can help with any additional questions about this!

Hi, I wondered if you could help with some clarification regarding splitting time between Disney and non Disney accommodation and booking fast pass? We are planning a two week break and hoping to do 1 week in Disney hotel and 1 week Off site. Is there a way we can get FP at 60 days out for the entire length of our 2 week trip or will it be split so half at 60 days and half at 30? Does staying in Disney first then moving off site help or is it a no go? Thanks so much!

Reply
May 13, 2020 at 1:23 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Lizzie!

Certainly - we are hoppy to! The 60-day window will be in relation to your linked Disney World Resort hotel reservation, so unfortunately, the advance reservation period will only apply to the portion of your stay that's on-site. The off-site week will only be eligible for the 30-day window.

Hypothetical: We're coming for 3 days, we'll say October 04-06. We really want to get Fastpasses for some of the popular attractionsb nyt we can't book until August 04.

How can we ensure that people staying October 01-06 don't take them all before we're even allowed to book? Since they're starting their trip earlier, their T-60 wiindow starts on August 01.

This gives them an unfair advantage for days later in their trip and puts people with shorter trips at an unfair advantage..

Hi Patrick!

We toadally understand, and unfortunately, there's not a way to ensure availability with FastPasses - they are all subject to availability. We've had very good luck throughout the years with FastPasses, so we're crossing our fingers for you! Set an alarm and be ready to book when your window opens; keep checking back for cancellations (including during your trip), as they do happen. From there, you can build a touring plan around anything you may not have nabbed a FastPass for. (When we make our FastPass reservations, we generally have a list of first and second choices; we then either rope drop or take advantage of Extra Magic Hours to hit anything we weren't able to nab with the shortest lines.) Hop back and let us know how it goes! :) Have a great trip!

I will be doing a cruise that leaves on a Sunday. I can add on 5 days at Disney World before or after the cruise. Should I do Wednesday to Sunday before the cruise or Sunday to Thursday after the cruise. My concern with going after is all the people going to Disney starting Saturday will there be good fast passes available for someone like me arriving on a Sunday

Hi Sharon!

Crowds will depend on your travel dates, as these can ebb and flow from week to week due to holidays, school breaks, etc. For the most part, weekdays tend to be less busy than weekends! From a cruising perspective, most folks find that visiting Walt Disney World Resort first, then hopping on a cruise is the best way to unwind. No matter which dates you choose, if you're staying on-site at a Disney Resort hotel, you'll be able to book your FastPasses 60 days in advance of your visit! Have a great trip!

My friend is staying at a Disney resort but we are not to save money since we have a lot of kids. Will she be able to book our fast passes 60 days early if we link are tickets to hers in the friends and family section? Or does she need to buy are tickets? Or is it not even possible to book fast passes together 60 days early if we aren’t staying at the resort?

Reply
May 11, 2020 at 8:14 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Stephanie!

The system recognizes that you're able to book FastPasses at the 60-day mark from linking your hotel reservation in My Disney Experience - so unfortunately, if you aren't staying on-site, it won't recognize you as eligible for that benefit. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! Once your 30-day FastPass window is available, you can, however, try to create FastPass groups with your entire party (both those staying at a Disney Resort and those who are staying off-site). Have a great trip!

Hi,

We are due to come at the end of April and this would mean we can start booking our fast passes at the end of March. If the parks are still closed would the fast pass selections that we make affect our park combo tickets?

Or we will still be able to use our tickets if we go later in the year?

Hello!

If we don’t manage to get certain fast passes in advance, do we still have an opportunity to get passes on the day of when we enter the park? (Besides from people canceling) Or will the app say that there are no fast passes available?

Thanks!

Reply
Mar 12, 2020 at 3:29 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Karli,

It's definitely possible that FastPasses can pop up, but it is mostly due to situations such as people canceling or park hours being extended. We've had luck with checking the app every so often before and during our trips and getting last-minute FastPasses for the more popular attractions. But if there aren't any available, the app will say so.

Hi Kelly,

You won't be able to include his dad until he's able to book 30 days out. However, if FastPasses for those rides are still available at the 30-day mark, you should be able to add him to your FastPass+ party by going to your reservation details in the My Disney Experience app and clicking on "Add Guest."

You are toadally correct - Hilton Bonnet Creek does indeed have Disney Resort hotel perks, including Extra Magic Hours and a 60-day FastPass window! In My Disney Experience, head to your profile and click on "Resort Hotel." You'll see a space to enter your hotel reservation number so that the system registers that you're staying at a hotel offering that benefit. Once your hotel stay is linked, you'll be all set to make your FastPass reservations during your window!

Hi there

Wow this was super helpful! Quick question, we are heading to Disneyworld in a couple months and since we live in New Zealand, when we order our tickets online will we get sent a ticket card? and if not, can we still use the e-tickets to set up fastpasses on the my disney experiences app? And how does that work at the park, like will we need to go get a card or magic band or can we print our e ticket and use that to swipe in etc?

Hope that makes sense! First Disneyworld visit and my brain is exploding!

Hi Elizabeth!

Yay, we are so glad to hear that this was hopful! When you purchase online, you'll have the option of selecting e-tickets (which would solely be emailed) or mailed tickets (which would be a hard RFID card). Either can be connected to My Disney Experience, which can then be connected to a Magic Band. If you'll be staying on Disney property, you'll be sent a Magic Band free of charge! If you won't be staying on-site, you can use the hard RFID card and connect it to My Disney Experience; you'd then use the RFID card in place of the Magic Band to tap into the FastPass return line. Let us know if we can help with any additional questions - have a fantastic first trip, Elizabeth!

Hi Maribeth!

You may find that FastPasses aren't available for some of the more in-demand rides (such as Avatar Flight of Passage and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train), but you should still find some availability to book both in advance AND during your trip for many attractions and shows! Be sure to hop back into My Disney Experience to see what's available, as folks can and do drop their FastPasses on occasion :) For any of the bigger rides that you aren't able to snag a FastPass for, plan to rope drop for the lowest wait times of the day.

Hi! I have enjoyed all of your content and tips. I will be going to WDW for a three-part vacation. We will be staying on-site for 3 nights, on a cruise for 4 nights, and then renting DVC points for 5 nights back on the property. We are going to purchase park tickets for all 5 days with the room reservation for the beginning of the trip. Will I be able to reserve fastpass+ for the DVC portion (it's within the 13-day time limit on the tickets) 60 days out?

Thank you again for your diligent work to keep us all informed.

Hi Leslie!

Thanks so much - we're so glad you hopped by! Since the cruise portion of your trip breaks things up a little, your FastPass windows would be separate for both the first and second park stay, unfortunately, so if you're visiting the park during the DVC stay, your FastPass window would begin 60 days from the start of that stay. Hope this helps!

Hi Gretta!

We definitely recommend staying on-site! Transportation is a breeze when you're on Disney property, and having the 60 day window gives you a big (frog) leg up on FastPasses.

Oh no! We aren't sure why that would be. We'd recommend giving Disney a call to see if they can troubleshoot the issue and get you back on track to booking in your early window! They can be reached at (407) 939-4357.

My party of 11 will be visiting at Easter so we need to be well planned! I would like to better understand how we book FastPasses as a group. If we all link to each others' accounts, can we all book for each other? Can we still all book separately? Do we need to start with separate accounts or can I add all the tickets to my account first?! Have been all over internet for this but only seem to find half the info I need to fully understand it. And what about Rise of the Resistance boarding groups - do we all try to book for the whole group?

Hi Sue!

What fun! Yes, if you are all connected in My Disney Experience, you can book FastPasses for one another (but you can also book FastPasses separately - you'll be prompted to choose your party, where you'll select from your Friends and Family who would like to ride). You can either start with separate accounts (where you'd then ask to connect to them via email) or you can link the tickets directly into your account and manage from there. If you think that folks may want to split up, we'd stick to separate accounts so that you can form separate FastPass parties and do your own thing if you need to, but for any that you'd like to book together in advance, just designate a FastPass manager to make things easier :) Our best advice would be for each family (or group) to create their own My Disney Experience account and link their tickets and hotel stay, if applicable. Then, head into your My Disney Experience account and click on "My Profile." From there, you can manage your Family and Friends list. To add others to it, click "Add a Guest" and the app will walk you through the rest of the process. The process for joining a Boarding Group for Rise of the Resistance will be the same as booking FastPasses. You'll log in to My Disney Experience and select your party based on your Friends and Family list (multiple people can try this at the same time to see who gets it the fastest!) We'd suggest making it for the whole party if you'd like to all ride at the same time. We hope this helps - let us know if you have any other questions! We toadally understand that this whole planning thing takes a lot of time and info!

My family is going to Disney in May of this year but we are arriving on different days-one family is arriving on Wednesday, another on Thursday and another family the following Tuesday. We have our reservations linked together but didn't know if we could reserve our fast passes together for the week.

Reply

Hi Renee!

FastPass+ reservations open up 60-days in advance of check-in if you are staying on-site, and 30-days in advance of check-in of you are staying off-site. That means that the family arriving first will get to book their FastPasses first, but the other families will not be able to start booking until 30 or 60 days from their separate check-in day. We have had luck booking similar timeframes as other families that we're traveling with (or adjusting ours after booking to match theirs), but if you'd like to guarantee that you'll all have the same FastPass windows, we'd recommend waiting until the very last family's reservation window opens up, then booking all together in My Disney Experience. I hope this made sense!

We have a reservation booked for May 24-29 at Swan. Initially we had all 4 in our family booked on the reservation. However, we booked with points and the website automatically added $250 for an extra person fee. The hotel rectified this by just taking the kids off the reservation. When our 60-day window opens up, will we be able to make FP+ selections for our two kids (4 & 9) with them not being on the reservation? Thanks!

Hi Kristi!

We'd recommend hopping into My Disney Experience ASAP to try to get some reservations, as availability gets more limited closer to the date of your visit. But all hope is not lost! Do the best you can in advance and you may get some surprises; continue to check up to your visit, including the day-of, for last minute cancellations. Plan to rope drop any must-dos that you don't get FastPass reservations for. Hope this helps!

What a great article! We have reservations at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando and we have previously purchased magic bands! We will purchase our park tickets well in advance but my question is... Is there a way to link our hotel reservation to our tickets or a way that will allow us to create our fastpass reservations 60 days in advance? I am not sure how the system knows what hotel we are staying at which would determine when we can book our fp+. Any insight you can provide would be abundantly appreciated! I would rather figure this out NOW instead of when we go to make our fp+ reservations 60 days out!!! :) Thanks in advance!!!

Hi there!

Thanks so much for the kind words! Yes, you can toadally link your reservation to your MagicBand! In your My Disney Experience app, head to your profile and select "Resort Hotel." From there, you'll be prompted to enter a resort reservation number. Once you enter it, it'll auto-magically register that you're staying at the Waldorf Astoria, and thus, that you're eligible to book your FastPasses at the 60-day mark - woohoo! Have a great trip!

My daughter is not the height of 48”. My husband, my son and are above the 48” for the Aerosmith ride. Do I book a FastPass for another ride with just her and will they let my husband or I on with her? I don’t want her to miss out on a ride nor do I want the three of us to miss out in the Aerosmith ride?

Hi Kelly!

You can use Rider Switch - just let a ride attendant know you'd like to use it! The ride attendant may assign you a return time, which you'll be able to see in My Disney Experience (and they can walk you through how this all works). Basically, Rider Switch would split you up into two parties; Party One (your son and husband, for example) would ride while you wait with your daughter since she isn't tall enough. Then, Party Two (you and your son) would ride while your husband waits with your daughter. That way, no one misses out! It can also be used in conjunction with FastPass, but it's not a requirement.

Hi, We have several park-hopper tickets linked to our names.We also have a single-park day ticket, but it has not been activated yet or somehow else linked to our names. I believe we can make FastPass reservations just fine, because the system knows we have park-hopper tickets. But what happens when we then use the single-park ticket that day? We would link it to our names at the entrance (or maybe a day before). Would we be allowed to use the FastPasses? I am asking, because we are not quite sure if we make it to a park that day, and our single-day ticket is refundable unless it is liked or activated (we purchased it through UCT). I guess what I need to know is whether FP are linked to ones name or directly to a specific ticket to be used that day. Thanks so much in advance! Cheers, Mischa

Hi Mischa!

The FastPasses you reserve will be linked to the ticket that's available in My Disney Experience. So if you wait to link the one day ticket, you won’t be able to book FastPasses in advance for that particular visit; you can, however, still book FastPasses same-day once the ticket is linked! We hope this helps - let us know if we can help with any additional questions!

Hi Brittney!

The 60-day FastPass window is only valid for your hotel stay, so it'd apply to your one night stay (check-in and check-out day included) at the hotel offering that benefit, but not the entirety of your stay if the hotel you move to afterwards does not have the same benefit.

Her ticket is valid starting on the 16th of feb but the military ones don't have a date. Is that why she is the only one coming up with an error..do I have to wait to form the group and see the times available until it is exactly 30 days out or is there a problem with her liked ticket (it appears to have linked fine, not sure what the problem is).

Hi Kelley!

You are spot on! If you can see her ticket in My Disney Experience, then the problem is likely that her FastPass window just isn't open yet. Once you're within the 30-day window of your visit, she'll be able to make FastPass reservations (but note that the 30-day window applies to each individual day of your trip, so you may need to log in multiple days to make reservations). If you can't see her ticket in My Disney Experience, feel free to either give us a call at 1 (800) 846-1302 (we are hoppy to help!) or to Disney directly at (407) 939-4357.

Hi Nicholas!

The members of your party staying elsewhere will only get the 30-day FastPass window, unfortunately. Your My Disney Experience account is linked to your hotel reservation, which is what grants you the 60-day window; they'd need to be a part of your room reservation to get access to that window, too.

Can you book fast passes 60 days in advance when staying at Disney Hilton head island resort? We are spending 4 nights in HH then going to WDW. I was actually able to book dining for WDW once I was 180 days out from the start of my trip in HH. I'm trying to decide if I should book dining at AKL on our first day at WDW and only want to do that if I can get a FP for FOP which i think will only be possible if I can book FP based off of HH check in.

When you are connected as Friends and Family, she'll pop up as someone who can be added to your FastPass party in My Disney Experience (and vice versa - you'll show up in hers!) provided you both have valid admission and are within your FastPass booking windows. She would need to either scan in her RFID admission card or scan a MagicBand herself to use her FastPass (and you can use yours). Have fun!

Hi Stacey!

Not exactly! You can continue to make FastPass reservations, but until those initial three are used up (which, as you noted, should be 1 Tier 1 and 2 Tier 2 options), no other Tier 1 options will be available to you. Our go-to is to try for Slinky as our advance Tier 1 FastPass, and Star Tours and Muppet Vision 3D as our advance Tier 2 options. Once we've used our initial three, we then try for more Tier 1 options. Hope this helps!

Hi, we are booking fastpass reservations for this upcoming week. Me and my son both have tickets (He got his ticket from school for a choir trip and I purchased mine separately) and we both have parkhopper passes except mine is for 5 days and his is for 3. We connected both of our accounts together and we began making reservations for fastpass. It shows up above my name as Fastpass + Party of 1. Does that still mean that our accounts are linked together even though it still shows my name? Or does that mean that "Party of One" is for one guest only?

Hi Matt!

Generally, as you're making FastPass reservations, "Party of One" will be the default and just show you; you can adjust this, though, and add him to your FastPass party! If you aren't seeing any names to add below you (where it says "Anyone Else Going?), this may mean that you aren't connected. There are a couple of other factors that could play into this, too, such as your reservation period depending on where you'll be staying. If you continue to run into issues, Disney's direct FastPass help line is (407) 939-4357. Hope this helps!

Today (Nov. 15) I tried to make fp reservations for animal kingdom on the 14th and Epcot on the 15th but when I make the requests the screen is blank. Does that mean that there are no fast passes left for both the 14th and 15th?

As an annual pass holder, you are permitted to have 7 days worth of FastPass reservations in a 30-day period if you are staying off-site. So likely, you're running into the same reservation period overlapping, leaving you ineligible to book more at this time.

Hi there!

We toadally understand - it's a question lots of families (including our own!) have to determine. This will largely depend on the time if year you'll be visiting, but in general, FastPass availability at the 30-day mark will be more limited than at the 60-day mark, and you can expect that the most in-demand rides will run out first. However, that doesn't mean you won't be able to find some that work for your family, especially if you aren't visiting at a peak time! If you do opt to stay off-site, be sure to refresh every day (even as you're in the park), as people do drop their FastPasses. We will say that the other benefit of staying on-site is Extra Magic Hours, as well as free transportation, which makes staying on-site super convenient (and giving you some extra time in the parks). Be sure to keep an eye out for deals (including through your favorite frogs!) in the event that something pops up in your budget. Ultimately, do what works best for your family - you'll have a magical time either way!
