FastPass+ 

Cheking in with FastPass+ and Magic Band

What is FastPass+?

If you’re heading to Walt Disney World, you’ll probably know about FastPass - but FastPass+ takes the fun one step further!

With FastPass+ you can pre-book rides, shows, attractions, character meet-&-greets and lots more even before you leave for Orlando, so you can make sure you’ve “locked in” all the bits you definitely don’t want to miss.

Book 3 FastPasses a day

How does Disney FastPass+ work?

Each guest can pre-book up to 3 FastPasses, to be used in one park for each day.

Once you’ve used your initial set of FastPass+ selections, go to a kiosk in the park and book another one (you can only book one at a time). Repeat as many times as you want until the park closes!

If you’ve booked your Disney World tickets in advance, you can pick your FastPass+ selections up to 30 days before your visit. If you’re staying in a Disney Resort hotel, you can plan up to 60 days in advance!

Scan your Magic Band

How to book your FastPass+ selections:

  • You can make your bookings through My Disney Experience, which will show you the location of your selections in each park. This lets you plan which rides or attractions will be easiest to visit on the same day.
  • When you select a ride or attraction, you’ll automatically be shown the best time option first, but you’re welcome to choose another time if you prefer.
  • If one of the rides you’ve selected is closed during your holiday, don’t worry – you’ll be given a choice of other rides to enjoy in advance.
  • Even if you don’t manage to book your selections in advance, you can still pre-book 3 FastPass+ attractions on the day using the My Disney Experience App or the FastPass+ kiosks located around all of the Disney theme parks.
