Disney’s FASTPASS, in use at Disneyland Resort since 1999, is a virtual queuing program for certain popular attractions, a service that allows guests at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure to receive a voucher listing a computer-assigned boarding time. The popular program was first used during the 1999 holiday season on “it’s a small world” Holiday. Disney’s FASTPASS options on Space Mountain, Splash Mountain and Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin” quickly followed in early 2000, and additional attractions have been added to the program since then.
- FASTPASSES are distributed via terminals near the entrance to each attraction that uses FASTPASS.
- Disney’s FASTPASS is available to all guests with theme park admission.
- A guest inserts his or her park ticket into the FASTPASS terminal, which reads and returns the park ticket along with a FASTPASS ticket indicating a time period during which the guest may return and enter the special FASTPASS priority queue for the attraction. (Tickets may be honored after the assigned time period in cases where there has been a delay in the attraction’s operation.)
- Guests can hold one FASTPASS per park at the same time.
- After a guest has obtained a FASTPASS on one attraction, he or she cannot obtain a FASTPASS on a second attraction for at least two hours.
- For certain popular attractions, FASTPASS return times may be filled early in the day. After that, no further FASTPASS return tickets will be issued for the attraction.
