Walt Disney World Resort More Walt Disney World Resort Stories

Disney Parks Blog Weekly Recap Apr. 27, 2014

This week, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs continued our MyMagic+ series on the Disney Parks Blog with an exciting update on FastPass+.
Beginning tomorrow, after guests have used their first three FastPass+ selections, they will be able to select another one at one of the kiosks located in each of our WDW parks. When they’ve used that one, they’ll be able to select another, and so on, ultimately providing guests with even more ways to customize their Walt Disney World Vacation. Tom also said that guests will be able to select and use their additional FastPass+ entitlements when they hop from park to park.

Check Tom’s original post for more details and to let us know what you think.
