FastPass+ has replaced paper FASTPASS at Walt Disney World

See also

The traditional paper FASTPASS, known as Legacy FASTPASS, has been phased out at Walt Disney World in Florida. It had been replaced by FastPass+, which has been in a test phase for several months. The popular Legacy FASTPASS was removed in December, 2013 at Disney's Animal Kingdom, followed by the Magic Kingdom in January, 2014. The next to make the switch was Disney's Hollywood Studios, followed two days later by Epcot.

Disney Resort guests can make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 day in advance online. Guests who are not staying on Disney property need to visit a FastPass+ kiosk when they enter the park to reserve their times. Guests are allowed up to three FastPass+ times a day and they all have to be in the same park. There is no word on when or if off-site guests and Annual Passholders will be allowed to make reservations online instead of waiting at a kiosk.

What many guests are not pleased with is that both Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot are on a tiered system. There are two different tiers at each park and guests pick one attraction from the first tier and two from the second. Guests need to choose between popular rides such as Test Track and Soarin', because they are in the first tier and only one selection is allowed from it. Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom are not currently using tiers.
