FASTPASS is a revolutionary guest enhancement at Walt Disney World Resort
enabling guests to have an alternative to waiting in lines for the most
popular attractions. There is no additional charge to use FASTPASS.
How to beat the lines at Walt
Waiting in line is no fun. Don't think Disney doesn't realize this. They
do. There is no additional cost for the service, which assigns guests a
designated time to visit popular attractions, avoiding waiting in lines
that can last well over an hour during the summer months and other busy
times of year.
After you arrive at the park, Walt Disney World guests who want to avoid
long lines can go to any one of the listed attractions where FASTPASS is
installed and they will see three lines: Disney's FASTPASS Distribution,
Disney's FASTPASS entrance and the stand-by entrance.
To help the guest make a decision, there will be a clock noting the window
time during which they can return with no further wait if they choose the
FASTPASS option and another clock showing current wait time for the
stand-by line. Should the guest choose the FASTPASS, you will simple
insert your entrance tickets into the FASTPASS turnstile, and get a
FASTPASS ticket that provides a window of time during which they can
return to experience the attraction. Guests are then free to enjoy the
park until their designated return time. To give the guest flexibility in
their schedule, they always will have a one hour window of time during
which to return. When you return, enter the FASTPASS return queue and go
directly to the attraction pre-show or boarding area with little or no
When the resort introduced FASTPASS, guests could get only one at a time.
Now, guests can get a FASTPASS for a second attraction two hours after
they get their first FASTPASS. For instance, if one FASTPASS is issued at
10 a.m., the guest will be able to obtain a FASTPASS for another
attraction at noon … or after his or her first FASTPASS time expires –
whichever comes first.
how it works:
1. Ticketed guest or annual pass holder enters park at front gate.
Guest visits any attraction offering FASTPASS. Here, guest has the
option of waiting in the regular standby line or choosing FASTPASS. To
assist, there’s a digital clock denoting regular wait time and the return
time for FASTPASS.
If the FASTPASS option is chosen, a guest inserts his or her theme park
ticket into the FASTPASS turnstile. Out comes the free FASTPASS denoting
when to return to the attraction. Holders of FASTPASS are given a one-hour
window for their return -- for example, 10:05-11:05 a.m. That means the
guest cannot enter the attraction before 10:05 but is free to return at
any time during the designated one-hour window.
4. While awaiting their FASTPASS return time, the guest is free to enjoy
other areas or attractions in the park. The guest can obtain a FASTPASS
for another attraction either two hours after they obtain the first
FASTPASS … or after the first FASTPASS time expires -- whichever comes
5. Upon returning at their designated time, the guest heads straight for
the FASTPASS entrance and proceeds directly to the attraction pre-show or
boarding area with little or no wait.
