No one enjoys waiting in lines at Walt Disney World. Lines at some of the more popular attraction such as Flight of Passage, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, and even Space Mountain can see wait times of 60-120 minutes (or more) during the busy season. If you are not careful, you could end up spending half of your park day or more waiting in lines for these types of attractions. This is the reality of many guests at the Walt Disney World resort who do not take advantage of the FastPass system.

Unfortunately (for them), many guests are unaware of the FastPass system at Walt Disney World. Even if they are aware of it, I would venture to say many people do not know how to use it or utilize it well.

In this post, I’m going to walk you through the FastPass system briefly and show you how you can use it to your benefit. At the end of this article, you should be a FastPass Pro!

Disney’s FastPass system is a free system that allows you to make FastPass selections for popular attractions. You can make FastPass selections with your My Disney Experience account online or within the mobile app, which you can download here. Having a FastPass for an attraction will allow you to skip the stand-by line and avoid waiting (for the most part) for an attraction. I highly recommend booking your FastPasses in advance, as many of the new attractions (those in Pandora and Toy Story Land for example) are booked as early as 60 days out. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you are allowed to book your FastPasses 60 days in advance (at 7am EST) prior to your check-in. If you are staying off-site, you will be able to book your FastPasses 30 days in advance.

If you have more questions about the FastPass system itself, check out Disney’s website here. For the remainder of this article, we’re going to focus on the big thing that Disney DOESN’T tell you.

Myth VS Fact

Myth: You can only book 3 FastPasses per day.

Fact: You can book as many FastPasses per day as you’d like!

To clear things up, you are limited to booking 3 FastPasses initially. You’ll be able to book up to 3 FastPasses, without issue, in advance or the day of. I recommend booking your FastPasses in advance, back-to-back, and early in the day (example for Magic Kingdom: Space Mountain 9-10am, Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin 10-11AM, Splash Mountain 11-12PM). Then, after you use your last FastPass (Splash Mountain 11-12PM in this example), you will then be able to book one additional FastPass! Let’s say you book one for Big Thunder Mountain from 12:30-1:30PM. After you use that FastPass, you will then be able to book another FastPass! And so on and so forth.

By using the system to your advantage, the amount of FastPasses you can get is limitless (granted other guests have not taken them, of course).
