    What is the difference between Fast Pass Plus and regular Fast Pass? Also, are there different advance times for advance Fast Pass Plus experiences? Thanking you in advance,

    Hi Dorothy,
    FastPass+ is the incredibly cool, all-electronic attraction reservation system that uses your Magic Bands instead of paper tickets for your FastPass selections. FastPass+ selections are reserved online (or on your smartphone via the My Disney Experience app), where selections for the previous FastPass system were made in person at the attraction after your arrival at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Yes, there are different times that you can choose your FastPass+ selections; these are based on your resort stay. Those staying in a Walt Disney World resort can make their FastPass+ selections for up to ten days of their vacation starting at 60 days prior to their resort arrival. Those staying off-site (or people like me with Annual Passes that just come over to visit for the day) can make their FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of their arrival. If you plan on staying for multiple days and you're staying off property, your 30 day window becomes valid on each individual day, not all at once like it would for a Walt Disney World Resort stay.

    Dorothy, I hope you enjoy the FastPass+ system as much as I do! Have a great vacation!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
