Understanding Walt Disney World’s Fastpass+ Tiers

Choosing fastpasses for your Disney World Vacation can be so exciting, but it can also be confusing. First time park goers often don’t realize that they may not be able to choose all of the experiences they were hoping for. Often when a client emails me their list of fast pass requests, they include multiple Tier 1 attractions, such as all of the attractions in Toy Story Land, or Pandora. What are fastpass+ tiers exactly? Fastpass+ tiers are categories that separate attractions into 2 groups. Tier 1 attractions are all either newer or extremely popular and often have the longest wait times, whereas tier 2 may be less popular and will often have a longer list of attractions. When choosing your 3 fastpasses for each day, you can choose 1 tier 1 attraction and 2 tier 2 attractions, or 3 tier 2 attractions. Magic Kingdom is the only park that does not currently have a tiered system, so any 3 attractions may be chosen at that park. As the parks are ever-changing and adding new attractions constantly, the tiers will also change. It is important to remember that sometimes (as will be the case with Galaxy’s Edge) fastpasses may not be offered at all initially for new attractions. Below you will find a breakdown of the current fastpass+ attractions by location and tier offered at each park.
