PHOTOS: Changes Come to FastPass+ Selection Interface in Latest Update to My Disney Experience App

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Today, My Disney Experience introduced a new interface to the FastPass+ selection process on your mobile device. Now, in addition to having expanded options to streamline your Disney Resort hotel check-in, you also have different options available for FastPasses. Let’s check out the new look for the in-app FastPass selection process.

While the overall selection process hasn’t changed, the interface now reorganizes the options a bit, with the option to filter between Morning, Afternoon, and Evening FastPass slots removed. Now, everything revolves around full hour slots. You can search for specific hours just like before, but the half-hour increments have been removed. FastPass+ time slots are still available in all sorts of increments, though.

Your arrival time is still specified, but the design for it has changed. You can click on “Change” next to the time slot to change that, or click “Change” next to the attraction icon to see what other attractions are available in your current time slot.

What do you think of all the recent changes to My Disney Experience?

Ughhh… I honestly liked having the “morning,” “afternoon,” etc. selections, because it allowed me to see more options, rather than having to choose a specific time period. How can I now see fastpasses for say, 10-20 minutes out, when presumably, it will only allow me to select the next upcoming hour time block?

I think it sucks ever since they put Fast pass on the app. People who want to go to the parks on spur of the moment or even within a few days have no chance of getting fast passes for the popular rides, as they get taken far in advance. I much preferred when you had to go in the park and to the kiosks at the ride. Not everyone wants to plan their day so far in advance. Even if you plan out a vacation to WDW, sometimes you want to modify your plan and visit a different park… Read more »

Such is life at Disney World. I’m betting far more people enjoy knowing they’ll be getting on a ride at a certain time on a certain day than wondering if they’ll be able to ride their favorites at all and/or wait two hours to do so.

Agreed, I think it is dumb to allow people to use up fastpasses that might not even be in the park. Takes so much spontaneity out of the trip.

I just checked It out on my app… the modify option is gone. I clicked change to check it out, but that didn’t give me the option to change the ride just the times?

You have to select the change option next to the attraction name to change the attraction, or select the change option next to the return time to change the time.

You’ve missed the main impact of one of the changes you’ve mentioned. The effect of them now offering two options to change time or attraction means you cannot check both options at once like you used to. Previously, when you modified, you would see time options for your selected attraction as well as options for other rides. So you could chose between altering your time or, if you saw a ride with a better time available, switch to that. That’s gone now. If you modify your time, you won’t see any other ride options. If you modify your ride, you… Read more »

So, will any FastPasses we’ve already previously arranged now be reduced to 30-minute windows, or will our 60-minute windows be “grandfathered” in?

I think that 30 minute window example only applies to the end of a park day. MK has been doing this for years on party days where the last FP window would be 5:30-6pm.

I’m going to continue to not like the FP+ system at all UNTIL they start allowing us to book in a DIFFERENT park after the first three are done!!! I buy park hoppers for a reason and this format kills the ability fully utilize them.

FP Still sucks tho compared to Legacy

After the First three are completed or expired, you can book 1 Fastpass in any other park on the app. It has been this way for…I wanna say 4 years now? You could always get a 4th fastpass by visiting an in-park kiosk at your second park since inception of the service. I’m sorry you are so misinformed of this.
