Disney FAQs

What is Fast Pass + ?

Fast Pass + lets you skip the standby line for select attractions, shows and Character Greetings. The best part? FastPass+ service is included in the price of theme park admission.

Check availability for must-do experiences and lock in 1, 2 or 3 FastPass+ selections for each day of your ticket at a single park.

Use your MagicBand or card to enter the FastPass+ line any time during the 1-hour arrival window and get to the fun, faster.

After you enjoy your third FastPass+ experience, you’re free to make another selection at an in-park kiosk or on your mobile device. Use that one, then get one more (based on availability)―and repeat!

If you have a select Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, secure your choices 60 days prior to check-in. If you are staying off-site, secure your choices 30 days prior to your first park day.

What are Magic Bands?

This colorful wristband is actually an all-in-one device that effortlessly connects you to all the vacation choices you made with My Disney Experience.

Your MagicBand enables you to travel lighter throughout your vacation. Use it to enter the parks, unlock your Disney Resort hotel room and buy food and merchandise. Plus, your MagicBand gives you FastPass+ access to all the experiences you’ve selected online, so you can simply concentrate on enjoying the fun with the people you care about.

Can I purchase a Universal Express pass the day of my visit?
The Universal Express passes are available for purchase in-park at the front gates of either theme park, or at merchandise locations throughout both parks. However, these products have a limited inventory and do sell out, so advance purchase is recommended. Additionally, Universal Express Unlimited passes are included when you stay at select on-site resort hotels.
