    Can you use fast passes during magic hours?

    Hello Raye! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    For Guests planning an Endlessly Magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation that includes many of the most popular attractions, it is crucial to maximize your FastPass+ Selections and Extra Magic Hours.

    Extra Magic Hours offer Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel the opportunity to experience the Theme Parks in a setting that is less crowded than the traditional scheduled Theme Park Hours. As it is only available to Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, the queues for many attractions are shorter and make it feel like you are getting a FastPass+. The lines also move much more quickly since Guests cannot use FastPass+ Selections for Extra Magic Hours and the FastPass+ queues are closed.

    I recommend that you book FastPass+ Selections for those "must-do" attractions during regular Theme Park Hours. That way, if any "must-do" attraction become a "must-do-again" attraction, you could always use the Extra Magic Hours for another ride.

    While the Extra Magic Hours are a valuable benefit to Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, remember the maximize the benefit of booking FastPass+ Selections up to 60 days in advance of your vacation is just as important when planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Have a Magical Visit!
