    Candace from ME Asked

    I'm not sure which is the better option... Should we select Fantasmic! as one of our Fastpass+ options or should we continue to use the Dining package as we have done in the past? I'm not sure how the new system works.

    Hi Candace,

    Great question! The new FastPass+ system is continuing to evolve so please check your emails as your trip gets closer for more information.

    FastPass+ is the new FastPass system at the Walt Disney World Resorts. As of February 2014, you are allowed to pre-select three FastPass+ per person, per day at one Walt Disney World Park. This occurs 60 days prior to your arrival. You can choose attractions like Space Mountain or Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin or shows like Beauty and the Beast. Select guests are also eligible to schedule character experiences, parades and lunch.

    Personally, I would not use a FastPass+ on any show, parade or fireworks. These generally have enough capacity to seat everyone during their preferred times. Characters are a personal choice especially if there is that one special princess or hero your child has to meet, it might be worth it.

    I would use the Fantasmic! Dinner Show to save a spot for this show. It is even an option with the Disney Dining Plan if you are using that this trip.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
