One of the best guest features at Disneyland is the Fast Pass. For rides, you bypass the long regular wait lines with a preferred “Fast Pass” line and feel like a VIP! For events, Fast Pass gives access to preferred viewing areas. Take full advantage. Prepare a Fast Pass strategy before you arrive . Here’s how.

How to Use a Fast Pass For Rides:
- Get to the ride in the time window specified on your Fast Pass. Times are strictly adhered to.
- Enter the “Fast Pass” entrance – NOT the “Stand By” entrance.
- Scan your park ticket or annual pass at the entrance.
- DON’T FORGET to get another Fast Pass when your Fast Pass ticket or Max Pass says your are eligible (we set an alarm on our phone to remind us…)
- IF YOUR FAST PASS RIDE IS CLOSED when you arrive, you just won the jackpot! Your Fast Pass will become a “free” Fast Pass that is good for any ride at any time within that park.
How to Use a Fast Pass For Events:
- GET YOUR EVENT FAST PASS FIRST THING when you arrive at the parks. These fast passes go VERY quickly.
- Get to the event at least 30″ prior (60″ is better). Fast pass viewing areas are still first come, first serve.
- Find the viewing area specified on your event Fast Pass ticket.
- Give your Fast Pass event ticket to the cast member at the viewing area entrance.
