    can you go to the rides in the parks and scan your ban and for a fast pass wait time. kind of like the old way with tickets? I knew all the in and outs of the old way. but I have not been to Disney since the bands took over.

    Hi, Thomas. Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    If you enjoyed the paper FASTPASS system in the past, you are going to love the new FastPass+ planning! Instead of wasting valuable Theme Park time waiting in line for a paper ticket with an assigned return time which may or may not work with your plans, you can now select your FastPass+ attractions right from home before you even arrive. FastPass+ also includes shows, parades, fireworks, and some character meet and greets! Simply log into your My Disney Experience account 30 days before your arrival (60 days if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel) and make your selections. You are able to select three attractions you would like to make FastPass+ selections for. After you have experienced these three attractions, you may visit a FastPass+ Kiosk within the park and make one additional selection. When you use your additional FastPass+ selection, you can choose yet another - you may repeat this process as much as you wish, provided there are FastPass+ selections still available. Our personal family record is seven additional FastPass+ selections, though we normally only choose two or three.

    Your first three FastPass+ selections must be within the same Theme Park. If you wish to Park Hop, make sure you use all your selections at the first Park. You may then visit a FastPass+ Kiosk at your second park to choose a FastPass+ selection there. Also, both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios have a tiered system which only allows you to choose one of the more popular attractions in your first three.

    If you have any additional questions about FastPass+ or anything else, please come back and visit us. Have a magical vacation, Thomas!
