Disney World, Florida


Fast pass is system in place at Walt Disney World (WDW) Resort that allows guests to make reservations for popular rides, shows and character greetings.  One of the most common questions I get asked as a travel agent is what rides should I fast pass? This is a great question because not all rides require or need a fast pass. Since fast pass is a way to utilize your time in the park knowing which rides to fast pass can help you save time and frustration. Want to know and understand fast pass better?

It’s a small world…

It’s important to know what rides are fast pass eligible. It’s also important to understand the layout of the park while planning. You can do this through your My Disney Experience App-available for free download on both apple and samsung gadgets. Understanding the park layout will allow you to sign up for fast pass selections in close proximity so you’re not trekking from one end of the park to another to get to your next fast pass selection. You want to fast pass rides that have an hour or more stand by wait line as well as shows to get reserved seating. If you have a Fairy Godmother like me you simply ask and poof these plans show up in your My Disney Experience with a little magic from yours truly.

Tier 1 rides are listed as the most popular rides at WDW and as a result you can only book one Tier 1 level ride in your first three fast pass selections for the day. Once you have used up those three fast pass selections for the day you are able to book another Tier 1 level ride although the likelihood of availability will be low. I hope this helps! Need help?
