Editor’s Note: We frogs loving nothing more than helping you all have the very best theme park vacation, so we're very excited to introduce our brand-new, downloadable Guide to FastPass+. We've written extensively on this topic, and we've taken all of that advice and boiled it down into one easy-to-read, take-it-with-you-anywhere format. The Frog Family Guide to FastPass+ covers all of the basics, including instructions for making reservations, FastPass+ priorities by park, kiosk locations and our very best tips!
For those of you who need help with FastPass+ in the park, want to book additional FastPass+ reservations or don't want to create a My Disney Experience but still want to make FastPass+ selections, the in-park FastPass+ kiosks are your friend!
We do recommend that you book your FastPass+ reservations as far in advance as you are allowed. As a reminder, you are allowed to pre-book up to three reservations per day in one park via the My Disney Experience website or app. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance of check-in for their entire length of stay, while guests staying offsite can make reservations up to 30 days in advance of each day of their theme park visit.
Once you are in the park, you can use the FastPass+ kiosks to help manage your selections. You can also use them to create new selections or manage existing selections. Not everyone in the party must be present at the kiosks, but the person making or changing the reservations does need all of the tickets or MagicBands in order to make changes.
After you have used your first three FastPass+ selections or your reservation time has passed, you can use the in-park kiosks to make an additional fourth reservation. After that one has been used (or the return window has passed), you can make a fifth reservation. And so on and so on. Each of these additional reservations need to be made from the kiosks, although you can then modify them via the app. If guests are park hopping, they can only book Fastpass+ selections at the kiosk for the park they are currently in. So, if guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios have used all three of their FP+ allotments, and are now hopping over to Magic Kingdom and want their additional selection, they must go to a kiosk at Magic Kingdom; their reservation cannot be made at Disney's Hollywood Studios for a different park.
To get started, head to one of the FastPass kiosks. Once you find a kiosk, you're ready to make your FastPass+ reservations.
To get started, touch your ticket to the Mickey RFID reader.
If you have set up a profile on My Disney Experience and linked your ticket already (not required), the system will identify you by name. If you have not set up a profile, the system will identify you as guest. If you want to make FastPass+ reservations for your whole party, you can do this by selecting "Add another guest to your travel party" and linking your tickets.
You will then be asked to select three experiences from the list of available attractions and entertainment options by park. If you select FastPicks, the system will make three selections on your behalf.
At this point, if you have additional members for your party, you can add them at this time.
You will then be presented with a "Best Match" based on your selections. Additional times are shown under options B, C and D. It's also possible to go back in after your selections are confirmed and change your selections individually.
If you're happy with your selections, then you are ready to hit the rides or explore the park!
If you decide that you would like to book another time for one of your already booked attractions or entertainment choices OR you would like to replace one of your booked attractions for another, you have the option to make changes.
You'll have to select which attraction you would like to make changes for.
You will then have the option to change the experience or change the time.
If you choose to change the time, you will be presented with a list of the available time slots for the selected attraction. Keep in mind, that you will only be shown times that don't overlap with your other two selections. For example, if you were scheduled for Under the Sea~Journey of the Little Mermaid between 12:45 and 1:45, you would not be presented with an overlapping time for Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.
If you choose to change the experience, you will then be presented with the list of available experiences.
You will be asked to confirm your changes -- and then off you go!
When you are ready to use your FastPass reservation at one of the attractions, go to the FastPass+ queue and tap your ticket to the Mickey RFID reader to enter the line. Your ticket will be scanned a second time as you get closer to the attraction, just as cast members collected your FastPass with the legacy system.
If you're looking for a list of FastPass+ enabled attractions and entertainment options and the locations of FastPass+ kiosks by park, we list them here:
We hope you've found this visual guide to using the kiosks helpful as you get ready for your trip! We're working on a post with tips for incorporating FastPass+ in your touring plans, so make sure to check it out.
