Walt Disney World Confirms New Option to Add More FastPass Selections

Walt Disney World Confirms New Option to Add More FastPass Selections Happily-Ever-After-Fireworks1

Walt Disney World has confirmed the recent rumor regarding a new ticket add-on that will allow some guests to purchase additional FastPass+ selections.

The new pilot program will be tested beginning January 12, 2018. Guests staying at select Walt Disney World hotels that are eligible for Signature Services and have purchased a 3-day or longer ticket may take advantage of the new option.  Signature Services are typically available to guests in Club-Level Rooms or Suites and VIP Tour Guests.

The cost for the new ticket option is $50 plus tax per person per day.

Guests taking advantage of the new option can add three additional FastPass+ selections per day. The selections can be in any tier, and if a hopper ticket is purchased, the FastPass+ selections can be in multiple theme parks. Guests, however, cannot reserve the same attraction more than once in a single day. The booking window for the additional FastPass+ selections is 90 days in advance.

Each day that guests take advantage of the new option, they can also receive a preferred viewing location reservation for one of Walt Disney World’s nighttime spectaculars, including Happily Ever After at the Magic Kingdom, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot, Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

All FastPass+ reservations, including the preferred viewing location, are limited and subject to availability.

There is no change to the existing FastPass+ rules for other park guests.
