New FastPass+ options at Walt Disney World greatly improve My Disney Experience app

in Disney, Technology, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

As some of you park-going rock stars may already know, Walt Disney World launched a major update to its FastPass+ service on Sunday for added flexibility and simplicity, along with a much-needed update to the My Disney Experience app.


That’s right, guests no longer have to deal with the old “pick 3” process when scheduling their FastPass+ lineup! You basically start by picking members of your FastPass+ party, and then select your park. You then select a timeframe and date (Morning, Afternoon, Evening, specific time, etc). Then, you just select your adventure from a list of attractions and time slots. Boom! Easier than ever!

Obviously, the limit of three FastPass+ selections at a single park, per day, hasn’t changed.


The updates to the app also allows guests to choose additional FastPass+ experiences in My Disney Experience once the initial three have been used, with fourth becoming available once the first three have been used. Rinse and repeat. This used to only be available at a kiosk in the park, so it’s a welcome addition.

Disney has released a video explaining the new changes…

…and breaks it down like this:

Guests can choose individual FastPass+ experiences and times. You can now select available experiences one by one for the times that best meet your needs for a more customized selection.

Guests are able to make one, two or three advance FastPass+ selections. You will continue to be able to make up to three FastPass+ selections in advance. However, if you’d like to be able to select just one or two, you are now able to do that, too.

Guests can make an additional FastPass+ selection via MyDisneyExperience after redeeming the first three. You are now able to make selections for an additional FastPass+ on the MyDisneyExperience mobile app, in addition to the FastPass+ kiosks located throughout the parks. Once you’ve used the fourth FastPass+ selection, you are able to select another, and so on — all on the go.
