How FastPass+ works:
Each guest can pre book up to 3 Fastpasses per day, which can be used in one park per day.
You can make your bookings through My Disney Experience, which will show you the location of your selections in each park. This lets you plan which rides or attractions will be easiest to visit on the same day.
When you select a ride or attraction, you’ll automatically be shown the best time option first, but you’re welcome to choose another time if you prefer.
Even after you’ve confirmed your time, you’re free to go back and change it. In fact, you can change your time right up until it happens!
If one of the rides you’ve selected is closed during your holiday, don’t worry – you’ll be given a choice of other rides to enjoy in advance!
Even if you don’t manage to book your selections in advance, you can still pre-book 3 FastPass+ attractions on the day using the FastPass+ kiosks located around all of the Disney theme parks.
Please Note: Valid Theme Park admission and online registration required. Disney FastPass+ experiences, the number of selections you can make and arrival windows are limited.
Magic Band or Card?
Tap in to the magic with your MagicBand or card and connect to all the Walt Disney World experiences you’ve selected. With just a touch, your MagicBand or card allows you to enter the Disney Parks (with valid Theme Park admission), access FastPass+ selections you made online, and more. These all-in-one devices mean you’ll travel lighter throughout your holiday.
Staying at a Disney Resort Hotel? You’ll receive a MagicBand, which also allows you to pay for meals and merchandise, plus enter your Disney Resort Hotel room.

WAS WANTING TO USE THE £10 DEPOSIT SERVICE THAT YOU OFFER- CAN I BOOK FAST PASS + RIDES ONCE I HAVE DONE THIS OR DO I NEED TO WAIT UNTIL I HAVE PAID IN FULL AND RECEIVED THE TICKETS?
Posted by FloridaTix on 22/05/2014 17:28:05
Hi Rachel, Yes you won't receive your tickets until you have paid in full, and you need your individual Disney ticket IDs tickets to book Fast Pass+. However Fast Pass+ slots are only available to book 30 days before your departure. So you could still book via our deposit scheme as you will need to pay your full balance off 5 weeks before departure, giving you lots of time to book your Fast Pass+ slots before you travel.
Let us know if you have any other queries! The FloridaTix Team
