When most people think about planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort, the first thing they think of are the attractions.
Disney World’s attractions are incredible and because of this, they can have long waits to experience them.
No one enjoys waiting in a long line to experience an attraction. Luckily, you can keep your wait times to a minimum by using our touring plans and by using a free system Disney World offers to all park guests called FastPass+.
FastPass+ is a great system to help minimize waits, but can you use it to book FastPasses for more days than you need?
WHAT IS FASTPASS+?
FastPass+ is Disney’s system that allows guests to reserve (up to 60 days in advance) an hour-long window of time to ride certain attractions. These reservations are commonly referred to as FastPasses.
When the ride window opens, guests can enter the queue using the (usually) much shorter FastPass+ Line instead of the standard Standby Line.
All guests (regardless of if you are staying onsite or offsite) are provided 3 FastPasses for free.
Guests staying at a Walt Disney Resort (including the Swan and Dolphin), certain Disney Springs hotels, or those staying at Shades of Green are able to book their 3 free FastPass+ reservations beginning 60 days before their Disney resort check-in date.
For everyone else, FastPass+ booking opens 30 days before their park visit.
HOW DOES BOOKING FASTPASS+ WORK?
When your FastPass+ booking window opens, you can log in to the MyDisneyExperience app or website and select up to three attractions or experiences that are FastPass+ eligible.
The FastPasses you book ahead of time must all be in the same park.
We don't recommend it, but there are kiosks in the park if you do not have the My Disney Experience app, decide to visit last minute, or would prefer to choose your FastPass experiences the day you go.
However, keep in mind that popular experiences book early so for the best chance of getting the attractions and times you want you should plan to book yours as soon as possible (preferably on the day your booking window opens).
SO, CAN I BOOK FASTPASSES FOR MORE DAYS THAN I NEED?
If you aren't positive exactly what you'll want to do each day you may wonder if you can make FastPasses for more days than you need and decide later which ones you want to keep.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that.
In order to book FastPasses, you must have a valid ticket media tied to the MyDisneyExperience account or profile for which you are booking FastPasses.
The number of days that you are allowed to book FastPasses for is dependent on the number of days for which your ticket is valid.
If, for instance, you have a 4-day ticket, you will be able to book FastPasses for up to 4 days. If you have a 7-day ticket, you will be able to book FastPasses for up to 7 days, etc…
If you are an Annual Passholder, you will be able to book up to 7 days’ worth of FastPasses for any 30-day period. However, if you are staying on Disney property you will be able to book FastPasses for the length of your stay.
