This is a free tool,
available to all guests, which can help you avoid long waits. Many
rides allow you to take a FASTPASS ticket, and to come back to the ride
during a pre-assigned time period with much less of a wait. You
are allowed to go through a different queue once at any time during your
designated time slot. Sometimes you can even get right in with no
To get a FASTPASS for a
particular attraction, you need to locate the FASTPASS machine.
Ask a cast member if you don’t see it. Slide your park entrance card
into the special FASTPASS machine, and it will issue you a ticket with a
designated time period printed on it. Come back to the attraction
any time within that period and enter at the FASTPASS queue entrance.
For example, your FASTPASS could tell you to come back between 4:05 PM
and 5:05 PM. You would come back to the FASTPASS return area at
any point within that window of time. If you arrive before 4:05
you will be required to wait.
Keep in mind that you will
not be able to get another FASTPASS until the time period of the older
one has begun, or a certain amount of time has elapsed. This is
typically two hours but may be less during slow periods. Check the
front of your FASTPASS ticket to see when you’re allowed to get a
FASTPASS for another attraction. If you change your mind about a
FASTPASS, the official Disney policy is that you are not permitted to
cancel or change it. You’ll have to wait until the time specified on
your ticket to get another one. However we have heard that a supervisor
at another attraction may be able to give you a FASTPASS for their
attraction, but it would be at their discretion. We advise that you plan
in advance and choose your FASTPASS carefully to avoid this issue.
THOSE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES:
A lot of extra walking may be
required to get a FASTPASS and then go somewhere else while you wait for
your designated FASTPASS time period. One option is to send
someone from your party to get the FASTPASS tickets (make sure they take
everyone’s park entrance tickets with them). They can then come
back to your party and continue on to other attractions. Another
option is to hang around the area of the attraction for which you’ve
obtained the FASTPASS. Keep in mind that at times a FASTPASS time
period may be several hours away.
