10 – Do Use the Service
We’ve heard a lot people complain that they would like to use the service but refuse to pay for it. Honestly, we’re surprised by how often we hear people say this. It’s just not true. FastPass+ is free to use for any park guest whether they are staying on property or off. Whether they have a Premium Annual pass or a one-day ticket. There are extra perks for Disney World Resort guests on when they can make their FastPass+ reservations (see below), but the service is free and available to everyone.
Another complaint we hear is that it takes away all flexibility in your day. The FastPass+ system allows you to have control over when you ride the attraction, so you actually have a good deal more flexibility and control. With the old system, you were stuck with whatever time printed out on your paper and you couldn’t get another FastPass until you used that paper ticket. Under the new system not only can you switch attractions as many times as you want, you can also move your return times around as well, switch parks or even cancel the passes. While you are limited to what is available when you try to switch things around (no different than the old system), it doesn’t change the fact that you can be flexible and make changes on the fly. So don’t be afraid to use this great service. Most Disney guests love it!
