A FastPass is like a virtual holder for your place in line. You can reserve rides, character experiences, and secure places to sit for a show up to 60 days prior to checking in. Then on the day you visit the park and experience you reserved, you do not have to wait in the “stand-by” queue. They are free of charge and available to anyone who visits Walt Disney World. Guests who stay at a Disney World Resort do have the BIG advantage of reserving these before anyone else.

FastPasses are available to reserve 60 days in advance of your check in when you are staying on Disney Property or 30 days in advance of the actual day you will use the Fastpass if you are staying off-property. (This means you have to reserve each day’s FastPasses separately when each of your park days are 30 days away).

This is a great way to see your favorite attractions without waiting on the longest lines. You get three FastPasses initially per day and they all have to be at the same park. Once you use them, you can add one FastPass at a time. These are all made through your My Disney Experience account. FastPasses do not work the same for each park so I want to break down the tiers for you:

Magic Kingdom:

For the Magic Kingdom you can reserve any three different attractions you would like. The only limitation here is that it has to be three different attractions.

The other three parks have “Tiers” that you can choose from which makes it a bit more confusing.


Epcot has 2 tiers. You can choose one option from the first tier and 2 options from the second tier.

Tier 1Tier 2

Mission Space
Spaceship Earth
Turtle Talk with Crush
The Seas with Nemo & Friends

Choosing Fastpasses can be a bit confusing if you have never done it before and the My Disney Experience app can be tough to navigate if it’s your first or second time and you are rushing to get the passes you desperately want.
