Off-Siters Can Reserve FastPass+ in Advance Beginning March 31



By Dave Shute

Reserving FastPass+ in advance will be possible for off-site guests beginning March 31, multiple sources—including easyWDW.com and WDWMagic.com–reported March 26.

FastPass+ Reservable in Advance for Off-Siters

Until now, reserving FastPass+ in advance has been limited to those staying at a Disney World-owned hotel and Annual Passholders.

Beginning March 31, off-site guests  will be able to make FastPass+ reservations beginning 30 days before the intended use date, the same window as Annual Passholders. Off-siters need first to set up a MyDisneyExperience account and link their tickets to it.

Guests staying at Disney-owned hotels will continue to have a 30 day advantage, being able to make their FastPass+ reservations beginning 60 days before their check-in date.

This is good news, Dave. Do you know how this will work (and IF it will work) if you are just planning on a one-day ticket?

Heidi, well I don’t know anything yet…but I don’t know why it wouldn’t work with a one day ticket just like anything else–you’d pick one day that’s within 30 days, pick a park, pick your FastPass+– with the added complexity to one days of them being MK or not MK tix…

I’m super excited about this possibility- we are taking our 2 1/2 yr old there in 3 weeks but opted to stay off site to save some money although I was very tempted to spend the extra money for a Disney resort just to be able to reserve the fast pass ahead of time.
I had a semi off topic question I’m about to purchase our tickets online but since (from what I understand) the tickets have microchips in them for the fast pass purposes. Does that mean we will have to pick the tickets up at will call or will they mail them to us ? Just not sure how getting the tickets will work. Thanks

Amy, when you buy the tix you will get a confrontation number which you can then enter into your MyDisneyExperience account to link them up for FP+ (if they don’t link automatically.) Unless something has charged, you will have the choice when you buy them of having them shipped to you or getting them via will call. I’m a big fan of having them in your possession. Sign into your MDE account (or create it) first, and buy the tickets from there…

We’re staying off property and buying our tickets to the park from undercovertourist, instead of through Disney directly. Will I still be able to do this early FP+?

Yup! They sure will, Jessica.
