Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hi, my family and I are coming at the end of April, staying on resort and I am booking my fastpasses+ this week. Can you explain the benefits of a fastpass for the parade or fireworks show??

- Hi Paige,
Your trip is quickly approaching ... how exciting. FastPass+ is a new version of the FastPass program and allows guests to select a few favorite attractions or entertainment options in advance in order to experience little or no wait time, OR a preferred viewing area. The program is still in testing phases so it's possible not all guests will be offered parades or shows as a FastPass+ option. During a busy time like Spring Break, many would suggest selecting a Wishes nighttime spectacular or parade FastPass+ for the preferred viewing area in front of Cinderella Castle, however you'll still need to arrive early to stake out a good spot within that location. For our family, we'd prefer to utilize our FastPass+ options on popular attractions. It's a personal preference and if your family isn't keen on thrill rides, entertainment FastPass+ options would be a good choice.
Hope this helps, Paige, and enjoy planning!
