* Fast Pass Secrets *

Save on all the things you love to do!

    Don't Waste Time Standing in Line

    If you insist on going to visit Disneyland or DisneyWorld during peak crowd season and your main objective is to get on as many of the big rides as possible then you must get both FastPass and RideMax.

    Disney FastPass

    At the gate to each ride there is a FastPass station. If you come to ride and there is a long line, you can use your ticket to get a FastPass which you can use to come back in one hour (or anytime later) and bypass the line then to walk right onto the ride. There is typically (but not always!) a limit of one fast pass per ticket holder per hour.

    RideMax
    Beat the crowds with the FREE ultimate FastPass Planner from RideMax.

    The people at RideMax have a lot of experience visiting Disney theme parks have mapped out the how long the lines can get. They have used this info to create a nifty tool to tell you in what order to ride which ride and when to collect your fastpass. This only takes three easy steps: 1) Pick your Travel Date, 2) Pick your Favorite Rides and 3) Print your Day Planner.

    At one point on a busy day in California Adventure, my oldest son and I used our FastPass and RideMaxx to pass a really long line at the big California Screamin' roller coaster and walked right. After the right we got the FastPass tickets from his two younger siblings and walked passed the same people in the same line onto the same ride again. About a minute after we got off our second trip, the ride broke down. -R.R.
