Ask Mel Wednesday: What is a FastPass?

Two FastPasses for Splash Mountain

Splash Mountain FastPasses

Question: Do I need a FastPass to ride a ride that has a FastPass designation? And do I have to pay for them?

Answer: FastPass is a service that Disney provides to all of the park guests, free of charge. Anyone with a valid theme park admission ticket can use that ticket to obtain a FastPass. A FastPass is not required to ride. When you obtain a FastPass for a ride you are given a window of time to return and board the ride with a minimal wait. So you can grab a FastPass and go enjoy other parts of the park while the FastPass allows you to wait in a virtual queue and return at your designated time. And you always have the option of the standby line if you do not want to get a FastPass.
