The A-B-Cs of Disney FASTPASS Service

B: Better get ’em early
When it comes to scoring a FASTPASS ticket for one of your favorite attractions, one rule applies: the earlier, the better.
“Usually the popular attractions—like Space Mountain and Soarin’ Over California—will distribute all of their FASTPASS tickets first,” Abel pointed out. “But it can vary depending on other factors. For example, Splash Mountain and Grizzly River Run are likely to be very popular on a hot summer day. So, it’s really based on demand and Park attendance for that specific day.”
And if you were wondering if it’s possible to get a FASTPASS ticket for World of Color, the nighttime water spectacular in Disney California Adventure Park, the answer is “yes.” But, again, it’s best to act fast!
“As always with our newer attractions and shows, Disney FASTPASS Service is driven by demand,” Abel explained. “In the case of World of Color, it’s no surprise that the demand is high—especially as the nights get warmer. I recommend getting your FASTPASS ticket as early as possible in the morning.”
C: Collect ’em in both Parks
Now, if you want a really hot tip, listen to this. Abel told us that there is somewhat of a “loophole” in the one-attraction-at-a-time rule for Disney FASTPASS Service.
“This is what’s great about Disney FASTPASS Service,” he said. “The rule applies to each Park separately. So, if your plans take you to Disneyland Park first and then over to Disney California Adventure Park, you’ll be able to get a second FASTPASS ticket there.”
So, you see, it pays to know your Disney FASTPASS Service A-B-Cs!
