The Walt Disney World Fast Pass – Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

What is the Disney World fast pass?  Well if you are new to Walt Disney World or it has been years since your last visit, then there is something new for you at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Fast Pass is a pass for your favorite Disney rides, that allows you to skip the huge lines that some of your favorite rides like Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Space Mountain in addition to many other rides can have.  In some cases some of these wait times can exceed 90 minutes, and in fact during the Summer months most of the time, they do.

But this system of speeding up the lines for the people that actually have the heart and courage to ride is not only good for the rides in the Magic Kingdom.  They also have the same system in Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom.  The system is fairly easy, and here is how it works.  You take the ticket that you used to enter the theme park, and go to the Fast Pass booth.  Most of these are usually right near the entrance lines for most of the attraction rides.  There you will find a booth and several of them, that you can insert your valid Walt Disney World ticket into, the booth then returns your original ticket and issues you a Fast Pass ticket with a return time to enjoy your ride without the long wait lines.

The Disney World Fast Pass will have a return time that usually gives you a one hour delay that will allow you enjoy one of the many attractions that each of these parks offer, without having to make the long line of one of the more popular rides.  As I have been able to do, most of the times if there are long lines, you can seek a Walt Disney World employee and on occasion they will have plenty of these Fast Pass tickets available to assist you especially if your party is very large.  This helps them to avoid these long wait lines at the booths, and keeps people moving within the theme park.  Try these fast passes the next time you visit the Magic Kingdom or any of your favorite theme parks at Walt Disney World or Disneyland.
