    How does the new FastPass+ work? I saw something about different tiers?

    Hey Krystin!

    Welcome back.  We are so glad you are here!

    FastPass+ Service is an innovative way to pre-schedule attraction experiences without having to run all over the park.  How amazing! Guests using the My Disney Experience (MDE) app on a smartphone or logging in directly to their MDE account, may preselect up to 3 FastPass+ experiences a day. Guests may even change their selections on the go. FastPass+ Service is a fantastic way to ensure you visit your favorite attractions, stay flexible, enjoy your magical moments and skip the lines!   FastPass+ reservations may also help you skip the wait for character greetings, parades, fireworks and select shows.  Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot both have a tiered FastPass+ system.  My fellow panelist Marc has some great insight on acquiring more than 3 FastPass+ reservations per day in both tired and non-tiered parks. We love planning all our FastPass+ selections for first thing in the morning so we can get more throughout the day.  Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad can have really long waits and we don't want to miss out on those attractions. They are two of my boys favorites. At Epcot we must ride both Soarin' and Test Track.  With the tiered system this is easily accomplished by riding one of those first when Epcot opens and then scheduling the other later in the morning. I hope this information helps you plan a wonderfully pixie-dusted vacation.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
