How to add, edit, and copy FastPass+ reservations in My Disney Experience

Navigating the My Disney Experience system can be confusing, so today I have info on the best way to use it to get the FastPass+ reservations you want, and how to modify them later if you'd like.

Let's get started...

Before you make FastPass+ reservations

A few things to note:

  • You must have park tickets purchased and linked in your My Disney Experience account before you can make FastPass+ reservations.
  • People who made room-only reservations and did not buy their tickets as part of a package can practice these steps ahead of time. Just be sure to cancel all FastPass+ reservations you've made while testing. You can do that my going to My Disney Experience > FastPass+ > Cancel FastPass+.
  • Browser functionality for My Disney Experience (whether it's on desktop, mobile, or tablet) works much better than the My Disney Experience app.

Now, scroll down to read how to do various things with FastPass+ in My Disney Experience, or jump right to the section you need with the links below.

How to get new FastPass+ reservations

These are the steps to use when using a browser on a desktop, mobile, or tablet.

1. Make sure you're logged in to My Disney Experience

2. Click on My Disney Experience and then FastPass+


3. Click the New FastPass+ button


4. Select the names of all of the people in your group and then click Next.

I'd recommend selecting all names when first making FastPass+ reservations, even if some will have different reservations later.


5. Choose the park and date you want.

(Note: if you're online as soon as FastPass+ opens for your dates and want a FP+ for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or Anna/Elsa, jump to that day first.)


6. Select the 3 FastPass+ you want and the click Next. If you plan to get different FP+ for members of your party later, choose the more difficult FP+ now.

If you're getting FP+ at Epcot or Hollywood Studios, you'll be asked to choose 1 from the top tier, and 2 from a lower tier.


7. You'll be given 4 options with different times. Choose the best option that's closest to the order and times you want, and then click Next. We'll work to modify these times later to get what you want.


8. Now you can tweak the times by clicking Modify next to any FP+ reservations you'd like to change.


9. To keep the same 3 experiences but change the time, select the new time, uncheck the names of anybody you don't want to use the new time, and then click Update. The people you uncheck will retain the old time for their FP+ reservation.


To change the attraction for some or all of your group, click the Change Experience button.


You will be prompted to select a new attraction, then the available times will pop up. Uncheck the names of anybody who you don't want to use this new experience and then click Update. Anybody you uncheck will be able to keep the previous FP+ reservation.


How to modify existing FastPass+ reservations

After you make your FastPass+ reservations, you might want to change your selections to a new experience or time. In fact, I recommend doing that if you're in the parks and show up for a FastPass+ that has a short standby line, in which case I suggest getting in the standby line, then getting out your phone and changing the FP+ to something else later in the day.

Note: if you're trying to change an existing FP+ reservation to something hard-to-get (like Anna/Elsa or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train), perhaps because you've heard there's availability using a site like The Dibb, be aware that availability might not show up if you already have something scheduled during the times that are available.

Once again, I'd suggest doing these through a browser as it's much easier that way.

1. Make sure you're logged in to My Disney Experience

2. Click on My Disney Experience and then FastPass+

3. Select the Update FastPass+ button

4. Select the date you'd like to change and then click Continue

5. Select the Change Experience button or the Select New Time link to make your changes.


If you're changing the time, select the new time you want, uncheck the names of anybody you don't want to use the new time, and then click Update. The people you uncheck will retain the old time for their FP+ reservation.


If you chose the Change Experience button, you will be prompted to select a new attraction, then the available times will pop up. Uncheck the names of anybody who you don't want to use this new experience and then click update. Anybody you uncheck will be able to keep the previous FP+ reservation.

How to copy FastPass+ reservations

One good trick for getting difficult FastPass+ reservations if you can't get them for your whole group is to try to get a FP+ for 1 person in your group and then try to copy it over to others.

From a browser on your desktop, mobile, or tablet, here's how to do that:

1. Make sure you're logged in to My Disney Experience

2. Click on My Disney Experience and then FastPass+

3. Click the Add Friends and Family to existing FastPass+ link


4. Select the date you'd like to add a person/people to an existing FP+ and then click continue


5. Select who you'd like to copy from and click Next.


6. Then select who you'd like to copy to and click Next.


7. Confirm your changes and then click Next.

Note that their FastPass+ reservations will be overridden when you do this.
