If you’re planning to include Walt Disney World® in your family trip to Orlando—and who isn’t?—here’s a development of interest. Disney now allows all park visitors to make FastPass+® reservations in advance. This means you’ll have much better odds of enjoying the park attractions you like at the time you want.
This new service is a paperless upgrade of the FastPass system that enables park guests to lock in admission times to their favorite Disney World attractions, bypassing lines. Previously it had been available in advance only to registered guests at hotels on Disney property.
Everyone else had to make their reservations upon arriving at the park, possibly after desirable times at the most popular attractions were booked.
Now, as long as you aren’t a season pass holder but have pre-purchased a ticket, you can stay anywhere you like and make FastPass+ selections up to 30 days before your visit. You can make your selections online at disneyworld.com or on your smartphone using the Disney mobile app My Disney Experience.
Simply sign in to your account (or create one). Follow the prompts that instruct you how to associate the names of those for whom you wish to include in your reservations to your ticket and to link your ticket to your account. Then select up to three attractions you’d like to reserve using FastPass+.
Your times will be confirmed or assigned subject to availability. When you get to your ride or attraction at the appointed time, gain admittance by touching your admission ticket against the scanner at the entry. And if your plans change, there’s nothing to worry about. Your reservations aren’t locked in. You can change them anytime online, on your app, or even at FastPass+ kiosks at the park.
For those who may not know, FastPass+ replaced the old FastPass system, which guaranteed you admission to a ride or attraction without waiting in a long line but gave you no control of the time.
FastTrack+ now gives you control of not only when you want to experience your favorite Disney attractions but also where you want to stay at the end of your day.
