FASTPASS is Disney’s FREE Service that helps cut down the time you have to stand in line for some of your favorite rides. Where eligible, go to your ride and to the Fastpass Center. Put your Disney ticket in the appropriate slot and in a few seconds your Fastpass will pop-out and you will get your Disney ticket back at the same time. On your Fastpass there will be an allotted time that you can go back to your ride and instead of going in the standby line you will go in the Fastpass Line. A Disney Cast Member will look at your ticket to make sure you are in your allotted time. This way you can board your attraction with a minimal wait. Tips: When you enter the park, go to your favorite rides and get your Fastpass. If you wait too long the Fastpass Center may run out of allotted times.
