Disney FastPass+ - Terms and Conditions

Even more new Excerpts from "Disney Park Experience Terms and Conditions"
What are your thoughts as this rolls out?

Disney FastPass+

You can use the Site/App to make FastPass+ arrival window selections in advance for select park attractions and entertainment as well as pre-order meals at certain quick-service restaurants. Valid theme park admission required and other restrictions apply.

  • Once available, Disney FastPass+ service allows you to select an arrival window to experience certain park attractions, character meet and greets, and quick-service restaurants, and to arrange a viewing location for certain entertainment such as fireworks, parades and shows.
  • Availability of a FastPass+ experience, the number of experiences you may select and arrival windows are limited and vary based on factors such as the theme park you are visiting, the attraction or entertainment experience, the time of year and the day of the week, and prior demand. In addition, the number of days for which you can hold FastPass+ selections at any given time is limited.
  • Each confirmed FastPass+ attraction, entertainment or restaurant selection is valid for (1) guest admission to the entrance of the designated FastPass+ location on the date and during the arrival window confirmed by the Site/App.
  • The operating hours of all attractions, entertainment and restaurant locations are subject to closures and change without notice.
  • You may make FastPass+ selections for yourself, your Managed Friends, and your Connected Friends.
  • Your Connected Friends may also make FastPass+ selections for you or modify the selections you've made without notification to you. You can view the selections and modifications made by Connected Friends for you when you log in to your account and view your itinerary.
  • FastPass+ selections made for you by a Friend will count toward the number of FastPass+ selections you may make and hold.
  • A confirmed FastPass+ selection is not valid for admission to any theme or water park and valid park admission is required to make a selection and redeem a FastPass+ selection. To make a FastPass+ selection for you or your Friends, you must retrieve a Resort package reservation including valid park admission through your account or associate valid park admission to your account.
  • Each FastPass+ selection will designate an arrival window for an attraction, restaurant location or entertainment experience. The FastPass+ selection is not valid before or after the designated arrival window or at any other FastPass+ location.
  • You may make FastPass+ selections for one park per day. You may only select and redeem a FastPass+ selection for a particular attraction, entertainment or restaurant experience once per day.
  • When you initially make FastPass+ selections for a particular park, you will select a FastPass+ experience set and if your plans change, you may modify the entire FastPass+ experience set until the first FastPass+ experience is redeemed or the first unredeemed experience expires. You may modify an unredeemed individual FastPass+ experience any time prior to the end the day.
  • All FastPass+ selections, whether arranged by you or a Connected Friend, expire at the end of the day for which they were confirmed. Unused and expired selections count toward the FastPass+ experience limit for the day.
  • Magic Your Way ticket holders may make FastPass+ selections beginning 60 days prior to day of use. The selection window may vary for other admission tickets or passholders.
  • Ticket holders holding passes or tickets with block-out dates may not make FastPass+ selections for any block-out date without the purchase of separate valid park admission and assigning that admission entitlement to your account.
  • We reserve the right to re-assign or re-schedule a FastPass+ selection due to an unplanned attraction or entertainment down time or change in operating hours.
  • Other restrictions and rules may apply based on type of park admission. FastPass+ experiences are not transferable, have no cash value and may not be substituted.

I know this might sound odd coming from Mr. Spreadsheet, but it sounds complicated and too pre-planned. And I'm not sure what a Connected friend and Managed friend is.

I plan down to which park we intend to hit on a given day, but it often changes for a variety of reasons. I'd be a little concerned that I would find myself trying to Micro-plan around that fast pass window.

I'll be interested in what others who have used it have today.

Thanks for the updated info, Kristen!!

I agree with Jeff, plus I don't like that you can only do it for one park per day. I'm a big park hopper, I like to start with one park in the morning and finish with another park in the evening, so this wouldn't be ideal for me. It's a good idea, but I think it needs some refinement.

Are the FastPass+ selections done by individual or by party? If a party of two adults and two children want to get FastPass+ selections do they all have to choose one ride together (like Haunted Mansion) or could two choose Haunted Mansion and two choose Splash Mountain. And would that then count as two selections even though each person has only ridden one ride so far?

I'm guessing Connected Friend and Managed Friend may refer to the other party members on your package with the Managed Friends being children.

I don't have answers for most of the questions. However...

When you go to the My Disney Experience section of the website now, there is a location where you can manage friends & family.

https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/profile/

From what I can tell a "managed" friend or family is someone that you add onto your reservation as a guest, and you are managing their travel arrangements (like my kids). If they have their own Disney.com account and manage their own information (like my husband) you can send them an invite and connect with you. They can give you permission to "Plan: Add and view all" as far as making trip changes goes.

From the podcasts I've listened too you don't all have to have the same selections you can pick different ones for different aspects of your party and it only counts as one ride each.

I am not sure if FastPass+ is a good or bad thing. I think Disney have or will be shooting their foot off if you are tied to one park a day and can't go between them I am fairly certain the revenue guys will be going what the heck! Also the rumour is that the number you can pick will be tied to what class of hotel you are staying in so delux will get more than value per day! I cannot remember what was said for non disney accomodation.

I am still confused how this will work? We purchase the military Disney tickets. Will this apply to us in May?

Right now, this is only an option for guests staying on property with a package. They are starting with Key to the World card/ticket holders. From what I have heard they will be implementing it on other tickets as well, but not much has been said. Will it effect your May trip? I haven't read enough information yet to say yes or no. All I can offer is a maybe, and do your best to be advised of changes as they start rolling out all the NextGen Features.
