How does the fast pass option work and is it any extra money?
- Asked by Christina from NY on 1/27/2008
FastPass is Disney's innovative system to avoid long waits for many of the popular attractions in the parks (but not all!). Any park guest can use FastPass, it is not just for guests staying at a Disney Resort, it is for absolutely everyone who has paid admission to the parks and it is accessed by using your park ticket/key to the world card, and there is no additional charge! Here is a link
to one of the park maps, (click on any attraction you are interested in and it will tell you if they participate with the FastPass service or not). Go to the FastPass ticket machine and enter your park admission ticket, (one per person...each person will require a FastPass ticket to enter the attraction!), out will come your ticket with a time frame for you to arrive back at the attraction, so you can go through the faster line up with little or no wait.
One tip I will give you though, is to try and get your FastPasses early on in the day, as they do only give out so many, and the popular attractions you will find end the FastPass ticket distribution when they have given out a certain limit. Have fun and enjoy the parks!
