Disney World’s FastPass+ System, Part II

Use your FastPass+ to get scared on the Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios
Heather Leigh

The new FastPass+ system at the Walt Disney World Resorts allows guests to reserve up to three attractions per day prior to their arrival. The new system allows guests to select which attractions they want to skip to the head of the line. This in an attempt to help reduce wait times for all guests and help guests better plan their day at the theme parks.

When using the FastPass+ it is best to reserve times for the busier attractions, because the less popular ones tend to already have smaller lines to begin with. Most of the less popular attractions will have less than a 10 minute way during slower seasons and around 30 minutes during busier times. Where the more popular attractions tend to have one to two hour waits at their busiest.

It may be possible to get an extra FastPass+ selection for an attraction during your visit to the theme parks. The extra selection is given when all of your previous three return times have been used. Because of this, it is best to make plans to ride all of your FastPass+ selections earlier in the day for the opportunity of receiving a fourth selection.

*Walt Disney World Travel Examiner’s suggested attractions to use Fast Pass + for.

Please note that for the attractions at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios there are two categories. Guests are allowed to pick one attraction from Tier 1 and two from Tier 2.

If you are unable to get the FastPass+ return times for your desired attractions, it may still be possible to avoid long lines. Consider riding those attractions during parades and firework shows, when the lines are shorter due to everyone watching the parade and fireworks.

Hopefully this helps you get your FastPass+ times during your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resorts.

Happy vacationing!
