fastpass

HI,

going to orlando 26oct, just want to know when you go to the disney parks do you have to go to the individual rides to get a fastpass time or is there one certain area where you can get a time for all the rides.

You have to go to the individual ride to get each Fast Pass-easiest at the MK where things are closer together but you can only get one at a time anyway so it doesn't make too much difference as far as back tracking

You have to go to the individual ride.

Animal Kingdom is testing a central area with fastpasses for the Safari, Everest, and Dinosaur available in one spot which is nice but the return times are not displayed so you don't know until you get your ticket.

At Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios you have to go to each ride. They recently started a NEW Fast Pass Location for all Fast Pass Rides at Animal Kingdom. Haven't heard any updates on that so I assume it is still in place. You will still have to wait either 2 hours since your last Fast Pass time OR after you have used the first Fast Pass to get another one.

7. Re: fastpass

Just returned from a week at DisneyWorld and spent time at MK, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. As of last week there was NO central Fast Pass at Animal Kingdom, or any other WDW park. You must go to each ride to get a fast pass. Once you have received a fast pass for a ride, you may not obtain another fast pass for 2 hours. Be aware that for the most popular rides, all Fast Passes are generally distributed by 11 am, so chances are that you are only going to get one "popular" fast pass per park, per day.

For example - we arrived at Hollywood Studios for opening time of 9am. Raced to the Tower of Terror and received a Fast Pass that was issued at 9:20 (meaning we could not get another fast pass unitl 11:20). Then attempted to ride The Aerosmith Roller Coaster, but the line was already a 50 minute wait. Went to some of the other attractions and returned to Aerosmith to get a Fast Pass at 11:30, at which point the Fast Pass machines were shut down as all Fast Passes for the day had been distributed.

This was pretty much our experience at every park. We were finally able to ride Space Mountain at MK, when we returned for the extended hours available to resort guests (midnight - 3am).

This was my third trip to WDW and will probably be my last. It is almost criminal that WDW allows so many people into the parks that it is almost impossible to ride the rides.

Sorry that may have been your last trip :(

President's week is one of THE Busiest weeks of the year

When we go in the Fall, we don't even need to get any Fast Passes, wait times are 30 minutes or less for most Rides. Alot we just walk right on
