Disney FastPass+ Frequently Asked Questions

by Leap on February 18, 2020 1196 Orlando

A note from Mommy Frog: After a temporary closure due to COVID-19, we’re so hoppy to share that Walt Disney World is beginning its phased theme park reopening July 11! To limit capacity during this initial reopening phase, FastPass+ service has been temporarily suspended and all current FastPass+ reservations have been canceled. 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+.

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! Let's hop to it!

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 can make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance of check-in for their entire length of stay. Now through the end of 2020, guests staying at select hotels (including in the Disney Springs area) 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!)

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 at the resort 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 offer additional functionality for all guests who wear them in the parks. First, your ride photos and video are often automagically associated with your My Disney Experience account, such as 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. 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.

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. 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 time. 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.

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.

Reply
Mar 2, 2015 at 8:22 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Sue,

Since you're staying off-site, you won't be able to make reservations as early as your sister. But once your 30 day window opens, your sister could copy her selections to you and your party (provided you are both connected in MDE), and the system would try to get your selections as close together as possible.

Please report back to us and let us know what you get!

Do you know whether fastpass reservations are transferrable from one ticket to another? For example: if I buy a 3rd party vendor ticket (8-day park hopper), link it to my magic band via the Disney app and make fastpass reservations, but have to change the length of my trip and thus want to use a different ticket (4-day park hopper), will I be able to transfer existing fastpass reservations to the new ticket?

Reply
Feb 23, 2015 at 8:35 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Merry,

Yes, you can do this. Your FastPass+ reservations are safe. The only potential problem is that once you add your tickets in My Disney Experience is that you cannot change the order in which the ticket is used unless you contact Disney directly by phone or before you enter the park at guest relations. So if you added your 8-day Park Hopper and then added a 4-Day Park Hopper, if you went to the gate with your MagicBand, the ticket entered first would be the one used first.

Hi,

as clarification to my earlier comment, my first set of magicbands currently covers the 5th or free day, Since I now have an extra set of Magicbands for the 5th day (thanks to my 4th night at Pop) (but no tickets linked to them) can I book an additional set of FP+ reservations for my group for the last day, this giving us 6 instead of 3 prebooked rides? thanks!

Reply
Feb 5, 2015 at 10:14 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Gabe,

The number of MagicBands or onsite reservations does not change the number of FastPass+ reservations you can book in advance. The limit is three per day from one park. Once you are actually in the park, you can obtain an extra FastPass after you have used your first three (or they have expired) from an in-park FastPass+ kiosk.

HI,

I have a resort reservation at art of animation for april for 3 nights, taking advantage of the free extra day offer. For the 4th night, we are staying at Pop as Animation wasn't available on the 4th night for the promo hotel rates. I have a set of Magic Bands for each resort. I don't have tickets for the last day (day 5), because those are covered by the extra day I got when booking the promo (I booked 4 days so got the 5th day free).

My question- I know I can book my FP+ at midnight tonight for the first stay, but is there a way to utilize the second set of magicbands for the last night to make an additional set of FP+ reservations for the last day even though I don't have any tickets linked to them?

Reply
Feb 5, 2015 at 10:21 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Gabe,

You can make additional FP+ reservations during your stay, but you would need, of course, valid park admission to use them. Whether you have a MagicBand or not, or even the number you have, does not matter. Hope this helps!

We purchased tickets for June and linked them to our account. To see how the fastpass plus system worked we linked them to our account and booked fastpasses for tomorrow. We cancelled them immediately just to see how it worked. Will this impact how many days we can book in the future or impact our tickets in any way?

Are the magic bands worth getting? And you can use them on other trips right?

Reply

Hi Peyton,

Yes, you can use them on other trips. I think they are worth the convenience, since they are used for park admission, FastPass+ entrances and Photopass photographers. They are sometimes tricky to use because they require the Mickey head to line up perfectly with the RFID reader, but overall, it is easier than always having to reach for tickets.

I'm staying off site. If my 30th day before going is saturday, at what time I can reserve my fastpass+ ? Is it at 00:01 AM ?? I'm asking this because I saw that some attraction have already given all the fastpass for the day. So I understand, that it is really popular. Does it mean that I will never be able to have a fastpass for them.

Reply
Feb 2, 2015 at 7:43 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Sophie,

The window opens at midnight eastern. Since you are staying offsite, the resort guests have had a full month ahead of you for making reservations. So during the busiest times of year, some attractions' Fastpasses will run out quickly. I would suggest you keep trying each day for cancellations. Also, if there is a specific attraction you really want, like Anna and Elsa, I would search for just yourself (not your entire party). If you get a reservation for yourself, you would then "copy your selections" to your other party members. This option is only available on the app, so if you are able to get a reservation yourself, you would need to go to the app. Select FastPass+ > Modify My Existing FastPass+ Selections and then "Copy existing FastPass+ selections from one Party Member to another." That is often a "backdoor" way to get difficult reservations, but you might have to still keep trying to get it.

Let us know if you have luck!

We are British and therefore won't get our Magic Bands till we arrive onsite. I've tried to see the time window we get and it only says 30 days, if we are staying at Old Key West surely we should have the 60. Am I not linking something that I should?

Hi Michelle,

I would go under My Reservations and Tickets, then under Disney Hotel Reservations look to see if your resort reservation is there. If it is not, add it by clicking Link Resort Reservation. My guess is that is the reason you are having trouble.

Old Key West is so fun and relaxing. Great choice!

Therefore, I am doing a short survey (5-10 min) about Disney’s MyMagic+ system (MagicBand) and its perception in the parks. Everyone (also cast member) who experienced Disney’s system is more than welcome to participate. I’m very curious about your thoughts.

Note that if you rent from Disney, you cannot make reservations, and ECVs are available first come, first served in each of the parks. If you scroll down to the end of that link, you will see a list of providers who offer ECV rentals for the length of your stay.

You can book your FastPass+ reservations the day before you enter the park or even the day of. FastPass+ is free and included with all tickets.

Best,

We have MYW tickets through UT, not the park hopper option. If we choose fastpasss in advance and then choose a different park that day, will that be a problem? Does making the fastpass reservations lock us into that particular park because of our decision?

Hi Lori,

No, you have the flexibility to change your park and FastPass+ selections.

I have a very slim wrist for an adult eg if I wear a bracelet its usually child's size. How adjustable are the bands?

Hi Wendy,

The bracelets are adjustable, and each one can be worn in a child's size if need be.

Honestly, looking through all these new changes, it makes more sense to just high-tail it over to the rides you want to do, and just do them. Everyone else will be monkeying around with these new fastpasses, it will actually work to our advantage (those not willing/able to be able to predict 30/60 days in advance what the weather will be and what park will be best that day). My BIL just came back from a short stay (4 days) and said his family did more than the family they were traveling with, who made advanced reservations for certain attractions and then had to wait as kiosks that were more than 10 people deep to make changes or add attractions. My family goes every year, usually during the busiest seasons, always used and loved traditional fast passes, but we are going off the grid this year and I believe we will see more than the new fast pass holders will.

My daughter and I both have two tickets from different trips to Walt Disney World. I have two Park Passes and she does as well. Each has one day of park hopping on each pass. Can we link both tickets to one bracelet for each of us? Before we order additional passes I would like to use these four tickets that have a day each left on them.

Thank You,

Anthony

Hi Anthony,

Yes, you should be able to link both sets of tickets to MagicBands. You need to link those tickets in My Disney Experience. If you are staying at a Disney resort, you will receive the bands in advance. If not, you will have to purchase them in the park.

Are tickets bought through Undercover tourist able to be added to the wristbands to use as entrance into the parks or must the tickets themselves be used? i will be staying at a Disney hotel so i know I will get the wristbands but i have always bought my tickets from Undercover Tourist and am wondering how they will work with these new wristbands. (I know in the past, my room key and ticket were separate because I purchased my tickets off property. Same thing? Any way to sync them?)

Thanks,

Sue

Hi Susan,

As long as you link your tickets in My Disney Experience, you will be able to use the wristbands for park entry.

I purchased tickets through UT for our trip in August. We are staying at Wilderness Lodge. I have our reservations linked in mydisneyexperience, and was able to link our tickets too. The website, however, is telling me I can only make fastpass reservations 30 days in advance, not 60. How can I fix this?

When you reach your 60 day window the full 60 days will show. The system is recognizing that you can use your tickets any time you want, not just during your reservation, and is giving you the opportunity to book FP+.

Hi Kristi,

I would contact Disney directly to see if they can fix the issue for you.

If i have old no expiration paper tickets with days left on them (waterparks and parks), can they be transferred to a non-expiring RFID bracelet?

Hi Kim,

Yes, you can transfer your tickets to a MagicBand.
