Disney FastPass+ Frequently Asked Questions

by Leap on September 30, 2018 898 Orlando

As long-time Disney World experts, ticket sellers and adventure-loving frogs, we help families plan their vacation 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. This is a compilation of answers to customers' most frequently asked questions about FastPass+.

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 it as easy as possible. If you already know the basics, check out our FastPass+ tips!  Either way, let's hop to it!

Disney FastPass plus FAQs - RFID tickets

Disney FastPass+ FAQs

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, including the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels, can make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance of check-in for their entire length of stay. Now through 2019, guests staying at select Disney Springs hotels also get this benefit. These are:

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!) You might remember the old paper FASTPASS system if you visited in the past. It's long gone. Now you book your FastPass+ selections on the My Disney Experience app or website, and your selections are tied to your tickets and/or MagicBands.

Is FastPass+ free?

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

What are MagicBands?

Disney FastPass plus FAQs - 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! The MagicBands offer additional (optional) functionality if you are a resort guest. They serve as your room key. You also can associate a credit card with the band so that you can touch to pay for purchases at the resort after you have entered your pin. Non-resort guests who purchase MagicBands cannot add credit card functionality to their bands.

MagicBands offer additional functionality for all guests who wear them in the parks. First, your ride photos and video are automagically associated with your My Disney Experience account (more on that below). You don't need to do anything at all after your ride to get your pics! (Guests without MagicBands would need to touch their ticket to the RFID readers at the ride photo area to associate their photos to their 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. At Haunted Mansion, the Hitchhiking Ghosts now hold up tombstones with your name on them. There is more personalization at it's a small world and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.

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 fumble in a backpack or pocket for tickets. You also get all of the benefits mentioned above!

How do I get a MagicBand?

FastPass+ MagicBands

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). Your MagicBand serves as your room key and can be used to make purchases at the resort 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 $12.99 + tax in the park or online. You no longer have to link your MagicBand in the park now, so you can purchase bands as gifts or to use later.

How far in advance may I make a FastPass+ reservation? 

Disney has two windows of opportunity for guests to book FastPass+ reservations. Guests staying at a Disney resort may 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.

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. 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 get FastPass+ starting at 7 a.m. EST. So, if you're on the West Coast and want to book right away, you'd 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 you want to secure reservations for a very in-demand FastPass+ attraction (such as Avatar Flight of Passage).

If you're staying at a Disney World 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, then 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 Disney Resort during your visit to take advantage of that window!

How do I make FastPass+ reservations?

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. 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. (We recommend this process if you have older, non-RFID tickets.) 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, like, for example, when Leap and Tad don't want to meet Elsa and Anna with Lily and I. 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?

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 Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios 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. We have more on this below!

Disney's Animal Kingdom does not have a FastPass+ tiered system, but you're only allowed to book one Pandora—The World of Avatar attraction per day. You'll need to choose between Avatar Flight of Passage or Na'vi River Journey.

How do I use FastPass+ in the park?

Disney FastPass plus FAQs - Fastpass+ Kiosk Magic Kingdom

When you're ready to use your FastPass+ reservation in the park, head to the attraction or entertainment experience during your allotted time. You will look for the FastPass+ queue at the attraction, and touch your ticket or MagicBand to the Mickey RFID reader for entry.

Just three reservations per day?

Disney FastPass plus FAQs - FastPass+ kiosk

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 on the My Disney Experience app.  Just make sure to update to the latest version of the app. Also, 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.

You can also use the in-park kiosks to make reservations. If you do use a kiosk, know that not everyone in the party must be present to add the FP+ selection; you just need your MagicBand or physical ticket and to be connected to them all as friends and family.

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, although the cast member at the FastPass+ queue has the discretion to let you in. If you are a no-show for an attraction, it counts against your daily allotment of FastPass+. You can modify reservations using the website, app or in-park kiosks.

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.

Which rides and attractions should I use FastPass+ for?

This is a great question! Which one you choose depends on availability and individual family preferences. That said, on our FastPass+ Tips page, 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.

We hope these Disney FastPass+ FAQs have fulfilled some of your curiosities. If you still have questions, share them in comments below.

It’s my first time visiting Disney as an adult and with my children. I am new to thr FastPass+ process. All our tickets and hotel reservations are linked but I’m beginning to worry that I’ve made a mistake.

The booking window for Disney hotel is 60 days, but when I log in to see the future dates that have become available,I’m still getting only the 30 day window from the day I check.

Thursday will be 60 days from our check in (Dec 17).

Will the 60 day window magically appear at 7am on Thursday? Or should it be visible from now ?

Hi Claudia!

The 60-day window WILL magically appear on Thursday, don't worry! As long as you are staying on-site at a Disney World Resort hotel, you're good to go.

I am taking my kids to Disney in January and staying on property, so we have a 60 day fp window. However, a friend who lives in Orlando and has an annual pass is spending the day with us at MK. So she has a 30 day window. If she's linked to us on MDE and I am the one making the fp reservations for our entire group, will it let me make them for her at the 60 day window with the rest of us or are we all out of luck and have to wait til the 30 day to be able to get the same fastpasses?

Reply
Oct 15, 2018 at 10:44 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Rebecca!

We suggest you make FastPass+ selections for your family at the 60-day window, and add your local friend at the 30-day window. You will not be able to include her in your plans at the 60-day mark since she is not staying on site. If you click on your FastPass+, you’ll see an option to “Add Guests.” The only catch is that it depends on availability, which becomes less likely the closer you get to your trip. Try that FIRST. If no availability appears, try booking your additional FastPass+ selections separately, but looking for times that match up. (We hope that makes sense!) Sometimes availability will be different if you take this approach. Even if the times don’t match up perfectly (maybe you have a 9:50 – 10:50 a.m., and all that is available is 10-11 a.m.) it’s still better than not having them together at all. Be sure to try multiple times and refresh the page.

We truly hope this helps, as we know how critical FastPasses+ are to an enjoyable trip. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi! We are from Arengentina and will be visiting Orlando next year and plan to purchase 4 day tickets for us all (4 persons). We aren't staying at a Disney hotel so we don't have Bands, and wanted to get E-Tickets by email. What exactly is the process to enter the park? I can print the E-Ticket information if needed, but I read something about requiring a ticket exchange that takes some time (few days?). On some other website I read that taking the E-Tickets to Guest Relations in the park gate is all I need to do and they will give us the proper park tickets to enter. Is that right? Thanks in advance!

Reply

Hi Andres!

When purchasing through Undercover Tourist, Disney E-tickets may take up to 24 hours to be emailed to you.

Add this E-Ticket to your MagicBand and go straight to the gate and onto the rides. (MagicBand not included with this purchase.) If you do not have a MagicBand, you must exchange this E-Ticket at a will call location for a RF-enabled ticket before admission. You may link this E-Ticket to My Disney Experience for FastPass+ reservations before will call exchange.

Hello!

I received a free 2 day park hopper ticket with my IATA card as I am a travel agent and I will be going to Disney with 3 other adults. I linked my ticket to my Disney experience app right away and booked the 3 other 2 day park hopper tickets on Expedia and added my other group members to the app. With Expedia tickets you get a voucher number but not an actual Disney confirmation number so you can't link to tickets on the app until you have these numbers. I called Disney for the numbers and they said the new policy is Expedia now provides these numbers. I called Expedia and they said within 7 business days I will receive another email with the actual Disney confirmation numbers. I purchased the tickets on Sept 23rd and have yet to get the email, even after 3 emails to Expedia requested them. When my 30 day window opened to book the fast passes I went on the app and booked the ones I could on my own ticket. My question is, once I get the other confirmation numbers and link them to the other guests on the app, can I link the fast passes I have already booked on mine with the other 3 tickets on the account? Or will I have to cancel mine and start over? Verrrrry frustrated with Expedia! If I have to cancel and start over I know nothing will be available any longer as my first Disney day is on Oct 27 and it's now the 11th.

Hi! There are two couples going to Disney in February. However, my husband and I are arriving on Wednesday and our friends are arriving on thursday. We were advised that since we are under the same reservation we cant buy two day tickets for one couple and only 1 day ticket for the other couple. We were advised we can book a 1 day ticket for everyone so its all the same on the reservation and then when my husband and I arrive we can add an additional day right at the parks to be linked. My reasoning for wanting to book at least one pass now is so we can do fast passes for flight of passage. My concern is that since we wont be all going the same day, are we able to make fast pass reservations for just two of us on one day and have it not affect the other reservation? Will their ticket not be affected since they are not actually going into the park and scanning their magic band?

Reply
Oct 9, 2018 at 5 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Alicia!

We don't see any reason why one couple couldn't get a 2-day ticket while the other gets a 1-day ticket. When the tickets are purchased, you assign them to the correct person to avoid any confusion. You can make FastPasses+ together on any day as long as you all have valid park entry - it doesn't have to be the exact same tickets.

Hoppy planning!

My family and I are staying at the Disney Springs Best Western (which is listed as a Disney hotel giving us FastPass selections 60 days In advance). I’ve also called to confirm this with a Disney Cast Member. They confirmed for me that I would be able to select fastpasses at the 60 day mark and even gave me the date and time. However, my question is if anyone has been successful with this? I noticed in one of the other comments that Someone mentioned having difficulty and it makes me a little nervous. Should I call the day prior to make sure everything is set up correctly? If so, who should I call? Also, if it doesn’t work at the 60 day mark, who should I call? Thanks for all of your help! I love reading your posts! I’m a Disney fanatic taking my children during the busiest time of year!

I have 2 back-to-back reservations at WDW resorts (one booked directly with Disney, and the other on Priceline, but linked and shows up on myDisney). When I make our FP+ reservation at the 60 day mark, would I be able to reserve FP for days covered by both hotel reservations at the same time, or would the second hotel reservation have a separate 60-day mark? I hope my question makes sense!

Hi Paul!

You're in luck - we totally understand your question! Since they are separate reservations, it's likely that you won't be able to book FastPass+ for your second half of the trip until its own 60-day mark. Let us know if you have any further questions :)

Hi Emily!

You will be able to book FastPasses+ 60 days in advance for the days you are staying on-site, and 30 days in advance for the days you are staying off-site.

Hoppy planning!

So my question is about booking fastpasses for different attractions for different members of our group. We have older kids and then a 1 year old & Grandma. Example - if I book FP for Peter Pan for Grandma & 1 year old, and then book my husband, myself and older child for say Splash Mountain. Are fastpasses specific to each Magic Band? Say Grandma decides she wants to do Splash Mountain and so I take 1 year old on Peter Pan, do we need to switch Magic Bands?

Hi Erica!

Yes, the FastPasses+ are assigned to each individual and their corresponding ticket or Magic Band. If you decide to switch the party members, we recommend visiting the MyDisneyExperience website to modify your party and reassign the FastPass+. Switching Magic Bands is another option, but we do not encourage this.

We have our Faspass+ reservations made for the evening on one of the days we are there, they were the only times available for the rides we wanted. Can we get any other fastpasses at a different park or even the same park if we don’t use the other ones right away?

Reply
Jul 23, 2018 at 1:39 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Danielle!

Unfortunately, you must use your existing three FastPasses+ before booking any others. For example, if your FP+ reservations are at 6, 7 and 8 p.m., you will have to wait until you use that last 8 p.m. FastPass+ before booking another.

Hoppy planning!

I am visiting Disney World in October, but I will be splitting my time between two Disney resort hotels. We are breaking up our vacation to go visit family in Florida. Will I be able to book fastpass+ reservations out 60 days for the times I am staying at the Disney Resorts. I will only be purchasing one park ticket, probably a 7 day ticket, but there will be a day or two gap between stays at the Disney resort hotels. I wasn't sure how you associate Disney resorts to your ticket, and if it recognized two resorts.

Awesome question. Just be sure to link both of your hotel stays AND your ticket(s) to your MyDisneyExperience account. Once they are linked, you will be able to make FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance for the entirety of your trip. Let us know if you have any other questions. :)

So in theory with the above example (July12 post), I could stay on site for 2 nights, off site for 7 nights, and on site for 1 night (with a 10 day base ticket) and be able to book all of my fast passes at the start of the initial 2 nights? Also, what happens to the fast passes if you cancel the last 1 night within that cancellation window, but after the fastpasses were booked?

I didn't see this question proposed so forgive me if it was. My question is when I have a reservation for a popular ride, say like Pandora, and that reservation is at 6:30pm, is it possible there is a line just to check in for the fast pass and if so does it get long? I guess should we start checking an hour before our fastpass time just to see if we need to get in some crazy line then, just to check in on time? Any advice there?

Hi there!

No worries! On some rare occasions, FastPass+ queues will get filled up and have maybe up to a 30 minute wait ... we've only had this happen a couple times on our many trips. For a popular ride like Flight of Passage, you're looking at about a 10-15 minute wait beyond the FastPass+ checkpoint. You do not need to worry about much of a line gathering here, as long as you arrive within your scheduled window.

I'm planning on staying onsite at a Disney hotel for some of the days and offsite for some of the days in my vacation. Some of the days I'll be visiting a Disney park will be a few days before I'm at the Disney hotel, some will be during my stay at the hotel, and one of them will be a few days after (yea its a long vacation, but I can't do the whole thing in a Disney hotel).

How does the 60 day/30 day window work with this setup? Will it be open for all the days from my check-in day to the Disney hotel or is the 60 day window only for the check in/out day?

We toad-ally understand not being able to stay at a Disney hotel for your whole trip. You will be able to book FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance for the days you'll be at the hotel, and 30 days ahead otherwise. We recommend hopping on the high-demand rides (like those in Toy Story Land and Pandora!) when you have the 60-day window.

My husband and I are taking our children and grandchildren to Disneyworld in July. We plan on purchasing 2 adult 3 day Hopper tickets and 3 adult and 2 children's 3 day Magic Your Way tickets. We will not be staying at a Disney Resort, so I know that we can make 3 FastPass reservations per day 30 days in advance. The 7 of us will not always be together during the 3 days we are at the parks (our daughter and son-in-law will be at different parks using the Hopper) My question is once we have used our 3 FastPass reservations and want to make 3 more, am I the only one who can do that since the tickets will be linked to my Disney account, or can the other family members somehow be linked to the account so they can make their own FastPass reservations from wherever they are in the park or if they are in a different park? Thank you for your help.

Our group is coming to Disney World in November. Some of us are arriving early and debating on if we should stay on property so that we can book fast passes in the 60 day window for everyone in our group. However most of our group and the times we visit the parks will not happen while we are staying on property. Can we still do the 60 day booking for fast passes if our park days are after we have left the Disney hotel?
