They’ve changed things again at Walt Disney World, they’ve changed the FastPass to the new FastPass+ system. Now your RFID card or MagicBand. You will no longer see the cast members checking if the paper tickets time matches your reservation. There is never any overlapping for guests to double book a reservation.
Disney came up with FastPass in 1999 as a way to distribute the crowds evenly throughout the parks. It was so popular that Disney came up with another level called FastPass+. FastPass+ has been around since January 2014.
Notes on Disney’s FastPass+
You need to plan ahead
During your stay at the Villa you can plan your FastPass+ reservations 30 days in advance.
Each guest is allowed three pre-planned reservations in one park per day.
After you use up the three reservations for the day, you can reserve one additional ride at a time. Providing the reservation is used. You’ll be able to keep doing that, but it’s only one reservation at a time.
FastPass is free with each ticket you purchase.
You can request a specific time or let it suggest a time for you.
The reservation window lasts for an hour. Meaning you have a 60 minute window to arrive for your reservation otherwise your reservation is cancelled.
When you arrive at the ride you’ll need to validate your reservation using your RFID card or MagicBand.
You can do your same day scheduling at the kiosk stations. There are several found though-out the park, some of the lines will be long!
You can only do one pre-planned reservation per attraction. If you want to ride more than once, you’ll have to wait on the standard line.
You can also make reservations for the parades, fireworks, character meet and greets and even Fantasmic.
Here are some recommendations for the different Disney parks:
Tower of Terror
Toy Story Mania
Kali River Rapids
Festival of the Lion King
