Disney FastPass Plus (FastPass+)


Scroll down for FastPass+ recommendations.

FastPass+ is free and included with your admission ticket


FastPass+ is a Disney ride and attraction reservation system, a bit like making a Disney dining reservation. With FastPass+ you can make a reservation for certain attractions within the theme parks. When you make a FastPass+ reservation you choose a time slot to experience an attraction. When you arrive at the attraction within your 1 hour time slot you are allowed to use the the FastPass+ entrance to the attraction rather than the standby entrance. Using the FastPass+ entrance significantly reduces your time waiting in line.

Each person can book up to 3 FastPass+ selections in advance per day and then they can make additional FastPass+ selections via the in park kiosks. Just to be clear you MUST book 3 a day initially e.g. if you only book 2 you will automatically be offered a third which you must accept. You can always cancel or modify it later.

Additional FastPass+ selections
  • The original three FastPass+ selections have to be used before you can get additional FastPass+ selections.
  • One additional FastPass+ can be made at a time. Once the additional FastPass+ selection has been used, or after the arrival time passes, another FastPass+ selection can be made at an in-park FastPass+ kiosk.
  • Additional FastPass+ selection can be made at a different park than the original three selections, but must be made at a kiosk inside the required park.
  • There is no limit to the number of additional FastPass+ selections that can be made following the use of the original three selections.
In addition to FastPass+ attractions, you’ll be able to choose from select Character Greetings, entertainment, and viewing areas for parades and fireworks. And if your plans change you can update your selections at any time.
You can choose your FastPass+ experiences through Disney’s website and My Disney Experience (MDE) app, up to 30 days in advance of each day of your theme park visit.

When you book a stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you can make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to check-in for the entire length of your stay.

Guests staying at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels now can make FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to their check-in date. They are not issued MagicBands, and they are not able to touch to pay.

Annual Passholder can plan 7 days of FastPass+ selections within any 30 day period for 1 park per day. Your 7 days don’t have to be consecutive and you can plan for an additional day as soon as one of your existing days has passed.

All Guests can make FastPass+ reservations at the FastPass+ kiosks located in the theme parks.
If you have not already done so, link your tickets, package or Annual Passes to your Disney account.

Make Your FASTPASS+ Selections

Fastpass+ replaces the old paper style fastpass. The only way to get fastpass will be either online or at special kiosks in the parks.

Note: At Disney's Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom guests can make 3 FastPass selections from any available attraction. At EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios a tiered system for FastPass+ selection is used. This tiered system splits the attractions in to two separate groups and guests can only choose one attraction from group 1 and the other two attractions from group 2.

Below are our recommendations for FastPass+ selections, we have based the suggested FastPass+ selections on the attractions that attract long lines very early in the day.



FastPass+ Recommendations
Remember you can make additional FastPass+ selections after your initial 3 FastPass+ have been used. You do this via the in park FastPass+ kiosks. We recommend that you make your FastPass+ selections as early as you can to take advantage of additional FastPass+

Animal Kingdom FastPass+ Recommendations
Thrill Experience
1. Kali River Rapids or Primeval Whirl
2. Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
3. DINOSAUR
Non Thrill Experience
1. Meet Favorite Disney Pals at Adventurers Outpost
2. Kilimanjaro Safaris
3. Finding Nemo - The Musical
Mix Experience
1. It's Tough to be a Bug!
2. Meet Favorite Disney Pals at Adventurers Outpost
3. Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
Note: Selecting Kali River Rapids will depend on the weather and your preference for getting wet!
Disney Hollywood Studios FastPass+ Recommendations
Thrill Experience
1. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
2. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
3. Star Tours - The Adventures Continue
Non Thrill Experience
1. Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage
2. Voyage of The Little Mermaid
3. Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!
Mix Experience
1. Toy Story Mania!
2. Star Tours - The Adventures Continue
3. Voyage of the Little Mermaid
Note: Toy Story Mania is very popular and lines get very long very early in the morning. If you are not getting a FastPass for this then we highly recommend you head straight for this ride as soon as the park opens. Within an hour of park opening this ride usually has in the region of a 60 minute wait.
EPCOT FastPass+ Recommendations
Thrill Experience
1. Soarin' or Test Track (Whichever you select ride the other first thing in the morning)
2. Mission: SPACE
3. Spaceship Earth
Non Thrill Experience
1. Meet Disney Pals at the Epcot Character Spot
2. Turtle Talk with Crush
3. Spaceship Earth
Mix Experience
1. Soarin' or Test Track (Whichever you select ride the other first thing in the morning)
2. Spaceship Earth
3. The Seas with Nemo & Friends
Note: Soarin' and Test Track build up long waits very quickly. If you are not getting a FastPass for Soarin' and you want to ride it make sure you head straight for Soarin' as soon as the park opens.

One strategy that works well but only if you can arrive before park opening is to not get FastPasses for either Soarin or Test Track. If you arrive at the parks before it opens you can go straight to Soarin' ride that then head straight over to Test Track and ride that, using this strategy usually means you can ride both attractions with very little wait.
Magic Kingdom FastPass+ Recommendations
Thrill Experience
1. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
2. Space Mountain
3. Splash Mountain
Non Thrill Experience
1. Enchanted Tales with Belle
2. Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid
3. Princess Fairytale Hall
Mix Experience
1. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
2. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
3. Enchanted Tales with Belle
Note: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is the newest attraction at Magic Kingdom and as such will attract long wait times very early in the day. Either make this attraction one of your FastPass+ selections or head straight to it as soon as the Magic Kingdom opens. If you can use morning EMH to ride this.
