Back in May, I outlined some of my concerns with the Fastpass+ system in this article. As the next wave of testing is underway I’ve acquired access to the reservation system. Guests were randomly chosen by Disney based on their existing on site reservations. These guests were contacted by Disney and instructed to visit the Fastpass+ website.
With a valid e-mail address and password, guests are able to add, modify and cancel their Fastpass+ reservations for their entire party. Below are the screenshots of the process, you can click each image to view a larger size, in some cases I have panned out to include more content in the image).
(Last names are present on some of these pages but have been removed from the images)
On the Login Page, users will enter the username and password linked to their regular reservation.
Once you Login, you come to the Home Screen where you have the option to “Select or Replace” your entire Fastpass+ reservation, “Change” a single Fastpass+ reservation, “View” all of your Fastpass+ reservations, or “Cancel” your Fastpass+ reservations.
Here I have selected “Select or Replace”, and from here I can select all or select members of the group to change multiple Fastpass+ reservations.
The next step is choosing the day of your trip that you wish to participate in the Fastpass+ program. Note on this page that it mentions Extra Magic Hours as well as Park Hours for some of the dates.
In Step 3, you can select 2 attractions from each of the Fastpass+ groups. It should be noted that not all attractions are available. When an attraction is unavailable the status is listed as “Standby Available”. It should also be noted that it lists the “Disney classification” of the attraction, as well as any height requirements. The attraction groups are as follows:
- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
- Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
- Main Street Electrical Parade
- Peter Pan’s Flight
- Space Mountain
- Splash Mountain
- Town Square Theater: Meet the Disney Princesses
- Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant
- Haunted Mansion
- Jungle Cruise
- Mickey’s PhilharMagic
- The Barnstormer
- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
- Town Square Theater: Meet Mickey & Minnie
Rather than make the specific selections myself, I selected the “Fast Picks” option and it automatically selected choices for me. From here I’m given multiple options for the time distribution. These include options that are concentrated in the morning or those that are concentrated in the evening.
I hit the back button and selected my 4 attractions: Splash Mountain and Peter Pan’s Flight from Group 1, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Dumbo the Flying Elephant from Group 2. In order to fit these attractions in the various time window options, 1 or more of the attractions may be removed as you can see in the second photo above.
Skipping ahead to Step 5, a confirmation is given that lists all of the members selected and the Fastpas+ reservations that have been chosen. In this case a change was being made so the system reflects the Current Passes and the New Passes. This page does not show the times that were agreed upon on the previous step.
The confirmation page shows all of the members of the party that are included in each of the reservations. The system allows guests to split their party if they so desire.
After the changes have been made (I have reverted back to the original Fastpass+ selecctions), you can View your selections by clicking on the “View” option from the Home Page.
