Using FastPass +

One of the most exciting parts of planning your Walt Disney World vacation is FastPass+ selection. It can be a little intimidating if you’ve never used the system before, or if it’s been a few years since you visited the parks. What should you pick? Are you making the best use of your FastPass? What should you skip and what is a must have? What’s even available? Check out our guide to using Fastpass at Magic Kingdom and you’ll be skipping the wait in no time!

When To Use your FastPass At Magic Kingdom

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.
