FastPass+ continues to evolve as Disney listens to guest and cast member feedback and makes further adjustments. The rollout of the FP+ and MyMagic+ programs, along with MagicBands, has taken much longer than expected with much confusion and technical issues persisting. The good news is that Disney is still working to streamline the process of both preplanning and on the spot reservations for FastPass+. Just weeks ago Disney Parks chairman Tom Staggs announced availability of MyMagic+ preplanning for guests not staying on-site at Disney World. Today he announced that, beginning next week, guests will be able to add additional FastPass+ reservations after the first three have been used. The additional FastPasses can also be used during park hopping, something which has frustrated guests. Details are still a bit sketchy on how the new features will work, but we’ll update you as soon as Disney publishes the process. Staggs stated, “after guests have used their first three FastPass+ selections, they will be able to select another one at one of the kiosks located in each of our WDW parks.” So, it’s not clear if you’ll be able to use the mobile MyMagic+ app now or in the future to reserve your additional FP+. This may be limited during the introductory phase. It also was not stated if additional FP+ options will be in tiers like they are in the preplanning stage. Either way, this is a positive change and shows that Disney is listening and making adjustments to perfect the system.
New FastPass+ Add-ons:
- Additional FP+ may be added on at a time after the 1st three are used
- Additional FP+ may be added in any of the four parks (park hopping)
- Not known if additional selections are tiered
- Not known if guests will be required to use the kiosks or if MyMagic+ can handle this function.
- Not known if concessions will be made for guests with late night FP+, such as fireworks
