Using FastPass+

One of the most exciting parts of planning your Walt Disney World vacation is Fastpass+ selection. Fastpass+ can be a little intimidating if you’ve never used the system before. If it has been a few years since you visited the parks you may be a little behind on the new system. What should you pick? Are you making the best use of your FastPass+? What should you skip and what is a must have? What is even available? Check our guide to FastPass At Disney’s Hollywood Studios to make the most of your time.

How To Know When To Use FastPass+

You may note that we do not recommend FastPass+ for a few of the more popular rides. This is because we feel that there is time to be saved by using a pass or that your pass would be better utilized elsewhere (particularly at one of the parks with the tier system). We tend to think a FastPass+ is better spent on a ride that consistently has lines of 30 minutes or longer.

FastPass at Disney’s Hollywood Studios also works on the tier system. DHS has a few more thrill rides to choose from that EPCOT, making it a bit harder to determine which to use your FastPass+ on.

  • The Great Movie Ride   10 – 60 minutes
