Hey Thrill Seekers,
If you’re like me and hate waiting in queues, especially when you can see the ride or attraction that you are patiently (or in my case impatiently) waiting to get on, then fast pass systems will be the key to making your holiday even more special. Here is my guide to fast pass systems for all of the major parks.
If you’ve ever been able to skip to the front of a queue for any reason, then you know it feels like royalty as you waltz to the front. Well we want all of our customers to be able to experience this feeling of importance whilst on their holidays. That is why we offer MyMagic+ FREE with all of our Disney tickets.
Disney’s fastpass+ is included on your actual Disney ticket and once that little green envelope arrives at your door (also a very majestic moment) and you have your precious Disney tickets in your hands, then you can start the process. Once you have linked your tickets, you can then book your fast passes up to 30 days in advance (or 60 days in advance if you are staying in a Disney hotel).
MyMagic+ is a great way to plan your trip. You can book up to 3 fastpass+ attractions in advance per park, per day. When inside the parks you will just scan your ticket to enter the fastpass+ line at any time during the 1 hour slot that you would have selected to get to the action quicker. Once you have completed your third fast pass attraction you can even log back in to your Disney app and book another one, after you have done that one, you can then do another and then another!! – This is based on availability in the parks at the time of visit. I would definitely recommend booking your 3 advanced selections for early on in the day so that you can take advantage of more throughout the rest of the day if there is availability!
Fastpass+ isn’t just for rides; you can book viewing areas, shows ad character greetings too! What a great way to get the perfect view of the firework show or a spectacular parade!
You are able to find the fastpass+ attractions on the My Disney Experience website or on the app. The parks have different ‘tiers’ from which you can select your attractions from. Most parks allow you to choose one tier 1 and two tier 2 attractions as your initial three fatspass+.
SeaWorld and Busch Gardens
If you’re looking to skip to the front of the Queues in SeaWorld or Busch Gardens then our Quick Queue tickets will be just the thing!
The prices of the Quick Queue tickets will vary depending on the date you are visiting. You will need to have a separate admission ticket into the parks alongside one of these tickets. Okay boring stuff out of the way, here’s the cool part!
At SeaWorld you get to choose from this list of amazing attractions for a one time front of the line access on your visit date:
- Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin
- Journey to Atlantis
- Sky Tower
- Wild Arctic
SeaWorld boasts some of Orlando’s most thrilling rides; I would personally buy 100 Quick Queues for Manta if I could!!
Over at Busch Gardens Tampa you will get to select from the following coasters to use your one front of the line admission ticket during your visit:
- Falcon’s Fury
- Cheetah Hunt
- Stanley Falls Flume
- Tidal Wave
- Congo River Rapids
If you’re a true thrill seeker I dare you to get a Quick Queue ticket for Falcons Fury AND SheiKra!
You can purchase as many Quick Queue passes as you want. If you are visiting on more than one date and purchase multiple Quick Queues make sure you have the correct ticket for the date you are visiting!!!
Okay, so a question we get asked a lot is “does my Universal ticket include express pass?” The simple answer is no, unfortunately we do not offer express pass for Universal however you can purchase these directly from Universal themselves. Universal offer two different types of express pass. One is called a Universal Express Unlimited Pass and the other is called the Universal Express Pass.
The Universal Express Unlimited Pass can be used an unlimited amount of times at the participating rides / attractions on the day that your pass is valid. You can choose from 3 passes; Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure or a 2 park one which includes both parks. The pricing ranges from $54.99 to $84.99 per pass.
The Universal Express Pass can be used one time per ride / attraction on the day your pass is valid for. You can also choose either a single park or 2 park pass. The price for this pass ranges from $39.99 to $64.99.
You will need to have a separate admission ticket if you are purchasing an express pass and you will be required to choose the date that you would like your pass to be valid for, as it will only work on this day!
So there we have it, the quickest way to experience all the fun and thrills of the favourite coasters and attractions Orlando has to offer. Don’t be a slow coach and make sure you have all of your fast passes booked beforehand to get to the fun before everyone else!
