Walt Disney World Fastpass Guide

Updated: Feb 19

What exactly is the Walt Disney World fastpass system? The fastpass system allows guests to skip the lines of up to three select rides at Walt Disney World! In order to get a fastpass, you will need to reserve the three select rides ahead of time to have them ready at your vacation. Guests staying at a resort hotel may be able to choose their reservation 60 days prior, and guests going to the walt disney world resort without a hotel reservation may reserve their reservation 30 days prior.

How It Works

Depending on your schedule, some guests like to make reservations in the morning while others like to make them later in the day. Keep in mind that you can only schedule your reservation one hour apart. It is best to find fastpasses for the rides that have longer wait lines.

Rides with the longest wait times

Magic Kingdom: Peter Pan's Flight, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Space Mountain.

Note: At Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios the fastpass system is slightly different, you select one of the three main attractions, and two smaller attractions for these parks.

Epcot:

  • Most of its main attractions are famous, from the one option you get these are the ones that get the most packed: Soarin (adult favorite), Test Track (Teen favorite), Frozen Ever After (kid favorite)

  • Two smaller ones: Spaceship earth and Journey into Imagination with Figment

Animal Kingdom: Pandora’s Flight of Passage, Dinosaur, and Kilimanjaro Safari.

Hollywood Studios:

  • Main Attractions: tough choice between Toy Story Mania! and Slinky Dog Dash

  • Small Attractions:Star Tours and Muppet Vision 3D

At the parks

As much fun as it planning your fastpass at home, at the parks it is very fun to add fastpass+ selections. When it is time for your fastpass+ selection, you will touch your card or magicband to the fastpass touchpoint and enjoy your ride! If at any given moment, you will need to adjust or change a fastpass+ selection, you can either access the mydisneyexperience app, or visit a kiosk where you will touch your magicband or card and customize the rest of your trip.

Special Tip

Now after your three fastpass+ selections are up, you can add more! Yes add more fun! To add another reservation you may visit a kiosk or the app and expand your fastpass+ selections. I always suggest reserving for the fireworks at night!
