Tips for making FastPass+ reservations

  • Use FastPass+ only for attractions that require it. You can use my guides for all 4 parks to see which ones I suggest (and the graphic below).
  • Consider not using FastPass+ for rides that offer a single rider line (Expedition Everest, Test Track and Rock N Roller Coaster)
  • Use FastPass+ at attractions that take longer such as Enchanted Tales with Belle (see length of more attractions)
  • Make use of Rider Switch
  • Don't use FastPass+ if the standby line is short
  • Save FastPass+ for late morning or early afternoon
  • You can park hop and use 3 FastPass+ reservations in 1 park and then hop to another park to get another FastPass+ using the kiosks in that park

Use this quick reference graphic to help remember the rides that are the best to use with FastPass+:


Quick tip of the day
