Update for guests not staying at a Disney resort: As of March 31, you have the ability to book advanced FastPass+ reservations up to 30 days in advance. More details are available at this post.
Now that Disney World has opened up FastPass+ testing to all park guests, we thought it was the perfect time to walk you through how to use FastPass+ at Disney World for the next time you’re visiting the parks!
As a reminder, legacy FastPasses are no longer available, which is why they no longer display on our wait-time apps. At this time only resort guests are allowed to make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance of their visit to the parks. Park guests currently can make day-of reservations using the park kiosk machines, which are located throughout the parks. Look for the big FP signs — you can’t miss them!!!
Once you find a kiosk, you’re ready to make your FastPass+ reservations.
How to use FastPass+ at Disney World via a Kiosk
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!
How to Use FastPass+ at the attractions:
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.
