We only have one day to visit the Magic Kingdom and want to make the best use of our time. We have heard something about "Fast Passes" can you tell me what they are, how to get them and how they work? We are traveling with children ages 4, 7 &

es are a terrific way to schedule your time and bypass lines for many of the attractions, including Magic Kingdom
. These include Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and many more.
Here's how it works .. Simply slip each of your your Park Passes into the FASTPASS
machine. You will each receive a ticket with an assigned return time. You can then enjoy the rest of the park and when the time on your ticket arrives, you return to the attraction and head directly to the front of the line. Your ticket will also tell you when you can get a FASTPASS
for another ride (often this time is about the same time your initial ticket becomes usable). Best of all, this is included free with your park pass. Here is a tip that some folks don't know ... the pass usually states that the FASTPASS
is good for one hour after its start time. However, the cast members will allow you to use the pass anytime later that day. So if you are on the other side of the park when your ticket becomes usable - no rushing back needed.
Its real simple, and I am sure you will find this a great way to quickly get through the park.
