Disney FASTPASS allows guests to make 'reservations' for a particular ride to avoid waiting in long lines.
As you approach an attraction that uses the FASTPASS system, you will see three lines. One is the FASTPASS distribution line (where you can make your reservation), the second is the FASTPASS entrance (when you're returning to ride after making your FASTPASS reservation), and the third is the Standby entrance. Each line will have a clock noting the window of time during which you can return to the attraction with no further wait if you select the FASTPASS option.
For example, let's
say the line for Space Mountain is 60 minutes, and you don't feel
like waiting in line. You would put your ticket through a special
machine, which would produce a slip of paper telling you what time
to come back and ride the ride...with no wait!! You have a 1 hour
window to return, so you have some flexibility in touring. The
time you will be scheduled to return will be the same, or slightly
longer, than the current wait time for the attraction. The major
difference is, instead of standing on line...you can be enjoying
the park!! Each guest can get a FASTPASS every two hours. The time
the computer printed out your ticket will provide the basis for
the two hours. For example, if the machine printed out a ticket at
9:00 a.m., you would be able to get another ticket at 11:00 a.m.
There is no charge for the service.
