Fastpass+ is the new Fastpass System at Walt Disney World. It allows you to book 3 Fastpasses for each day of your vacation, 2 months in advance. So it takes a bit of planning on your part. I decide in advance which parks we will be going to each day. My decision is usually based on which resort we are staying at. This also helps me plan out which restaurant to have lunch and/or dinner at. So, knowing which Park I will be visiting, I can now decide which attractions I would like a Fastpass+ for!
Magic Kingdom has the biggest selection of choices! As I mentioned, you can book 3 Fastpass+/day in advance. You will receive a 1 hour window to go to the ride and not have to wait in the Stand-by line. However, once you use up those 3 Fastpass+, you can then stop by a Fastpass+ kiosk to book another Fastpass+ for that day. This allows you to get more Fastpasses as well as to get a Fastpass+ at another park, if you are park hopping! You can no longer get a Fastpass from a machine by the ride. It is all done online!
So what are the best choices to get a Fastpass+ for? Definitely the Rollercoasters! Space Mountain always has a pretty long stand by line!
As well as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!
The Seven Dwarves Mine Train just opened earlier this year, so you will want a Fastpass+ for that one!
Enchanted Tales With Belle is a slow moving line, so I would recommend a Fastpass+ for that attraction.
Peter Pan’s Flight is one of my favourite attractions, and always has a 45 minute stand-by line! So I always get a Fastpass+ so I can go on it.
The latest attraction to get a Fastpass+ is the Elsa and Anna Meet and Greet! If meeting Elsa and Anna is on your list definitely get a Fastpass+ for that!! Otherwise you may have to wait hours, or they may close the line and you may not get to meet them.
Finally, the last one I would recommend is Splash Mountain. I don’t ride this attraction, but there is usually a really long stand-by line.
As well, if you want to have lunch at Be Our Guest, I would highly recommend the Fastpass+ for that. Recently, they were testing only allowing guest with Fastpasses to actually eat there at lunch! This is a separate Fastpass+ and you can access it at: https://beourguestlunch.disney.go.com
Attractions that you don’t need a Fastpass+ for are: Ariel’s Grotto, the Branstormer, Buzz Lightyear, Dumbo, Haunted Mansion, It’s a Small World, Jungle Cruise, Mad Tea Party, Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Monster’s Ink, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tomorrowland Speedway, Mickey’s Meet and Greet and Under the Sea.
You can also get Fastpass+ for the Parades and for Wishes. That isn’t something I would spend my 1 of 3 Fastpass+ on, but that is a decision you would have to make. If I would choose 1 parade it would be the Festival of Fantasy.
Now, if you have small children and the Roller coasters aren’t your thing, then maybe get a Fastpass+ for Winnie the Pooh and Under the Sea, along with Peter Pan!
If you aren’t travelling with little children then my tip for you is to get to the Magic Kingdom around 7pm and you can walk onto many of the rides! Gemma and I go to the Magic Kingdom from around 7pm to close and do every ride that we wish to!
