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

(Last updated February 26, 2019)

Navigating the My Disney Experience system can be confusing, so today we 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.
  • Browser functionality for My Disney Experience (whether it's on desktop, mobile, or tablet) works much better than the My Disney Experience app, so, if you are having trouble getting the app to work (especially if you are in the parks) try using the browser version of My Disney Experience instead.
  • Some FastPass+ reservations are challenging to get. Make sure you identify which ones of yours are so you can have a strategy in place to maximize your chances of snagging them. Check out our post on How to Get Difficult FastPass+ Reservations for help.

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. In the "My Plans" section, select Add New FastPass+ under the FastPass+ iconFastPass+ in My Disney Experience

Or, you can click My Disney Experience (in the menu in the top right) and then Get FastPass+.

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

4. Choose the park and date you want.

(Note: some FastPass+ options are extremely competitive to get so make sure you make yours in order of difficulty and not chronologically.)

5. Select the first 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. If you are selecting FastPasses for Animal Kingdom, you'll be allowed to choose 1 from the attractions in Pandora and 2 from the other areas of the park.

6. All of the open and available options will be at the top. Attractions without FastPasses available will be at the bottom. You can adjust the time frame you are looking for at the top. Choose the best option for your touring plans and select confirm.

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, we recommend doing that if you're in the parks and show up for a FastPass+ that has a short standby line, in which case we suggest getting in the standby line, then getting out your phone and changing the FP+ to something else later in the day.

Once again, we suggest doing these through a browser as it's much easier that way and you are much less likely to encounter any "glitches" like you may have in the app.

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

2. Once there, in the Plans section select View or Update under FastPass+.

How to add additional guests to your 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 by using the "Add Guest" function.

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. Once there, in the Plans section select View or Update under FastPass+

Where to go to modify plans

You can also click on My Disney Experience (in the menu at the top right) and then Get FastPass+.

3. Select the FastPass+ reservation you'd like to change and then click View Details.

4. Select Add Guests.

5. Select the person from your Friends and Family list that you'd like to try to add to your reservation.

6. If there is availability, you'll be asked to confirm the selection. If the exact time isn't available but there are other times that are, it will show you those.

(Note: this will change everybody's reservation to that time. If that won't work for you, start over and try to find an overlapping time for the 1 person that doesn't have a FastPass+ reservation.)

7. Confirm your changes.

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