There are 4 Disney Parks all with their most popular attractions without knowing how to make good use of the Fast Passes you can spend most of your time standing in line. Fast Passes are are available to anyone with a Disney Park Ticket not just to those staying onsite. Tour Guide Mike has a guide for each park, what fast passes to grab first and how to get the most out of your park visit.
Grab a park schedule:
Just inside each park you will find a printed schedule for the day. Be sure and grab one and you will know the times of the shows and parades for the day.
Fast Passes are for anyone with a park ticket. They are not reserved just for the people staying onsite. Using fast passes will make your park experience a much better one.
There are fast pass machines near each fast pass eligible ride. You just insert your park ticket and it will spit out a fast pass with a time to return to the ride, enter into the fast pass line and the wait is much less that the standby line. Your fast pass will tell you when you will be eligible to get your next fast pass for the same or another attraction.
**Please note: On prior visits the return times where not strictly monitored and you could ride at anytime after the fast pass printed time but now I am reading that they are adhering to the fast pass return time or you will have to either get another fast pass or ride standby. I am also reading that they are distributing many more fast passes, making the fast pass lines a bit longer than they were in the past but they are still faster than the standby lines.
If you are planning a trip to Disney, Tour Guide Mike is a must have for my Disney trips and worth every dollar. I have no affiliation with Tour Guide Mike other than I have used his service for all my Disney trips. Just subscribe in time to read and study his recommendations for the time you are there.
