We arrive in 45 days! So excited. We have customized our Magic Bands. My question is about Fast Pass+. Is it better to select choices now or can we just wait and make choices daily while we are at WDW? Thanks so much.
- Asked by Joy from SC on 10/15/2013
Isn't the new technology so exciting? I couldn't wait to test my MagicBand out on my recent trip to Walt Disney World. In my experience, I selected my FastPass+ choices from home and would encourage others to do the same. The good news is, iPad reservation stations exist at Guest Relations in each Park to assist you with last minute changes. Keep in mind MyMagic+ remains in testing phases so features are always subject to change, but I found it very convenient to make adjustments from my smartphone on the fly. I downloaded the My Disney Experience app, providing me helpful resources from the palm of my hand. While in the Parks, I was able to adjust FastPass+ selections, obtain "stand by" wait times for attractions, locate Disney Characters and more.
What I'm liking most about FP+ is the ability to enjoy a "headliner" attraction in the evening. In the past, our family would beeline to Toy Story Mania when the Park opened just
to obtain a Fastpass...(hardly relaxing) ... On a recent trip, I was able to choose a 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. window, allowing us to enjoy our mornings without rushing around for Fastpasses.
Do you need suggestions on FP+ options? Let me know the ages of your children and interests, and I'd be happy to offer some ideas!
Thanks again for the great question, Joy, and best wishes for a magical vacation!
