Walt Disney World to Distribute Paper FastPasses on Select Evenings at Magic Kingdom Park

We have very exciting news for guests that will be visiting Walt Disney World in November or December.  We have learned that guests will possibly receive a bonus FastPass good for that evening at Magic Kingdom Park.  The FastPass will be a paper FastPass, rather than exclusively using My Disney Experience for FastPass+ selections (which will still be available on those days).  They will only be good on the date that they are issued. Paper FastPasses have been a thing of the past since FastPass+ launched, but it is definitely nice to see them back, especially used in this way!


The special paper FastPasses will not be valid at the following attractions (and will only admit you into 1 attraction):

  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • Character Meet and Greets

We don’t know yet how they will be issued.  It is possible that cast members will hand them out or they could be distributed in some other way.  We don’t know yet where or how to get them, or which nights they will be given out.  We would expect that they won’t be given out on nights where there is a Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party offered.

What do you all think of this special paper FastPass offering?  Won’t that be a nice gift from Disney during the busy holiday season?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
