Visitors to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom will no longer be able to use FastPass+ to secure prime locations for viewing Festival of Fantasy Parade, The Main Street Electrical Parade, or Wishes. If you want to see these shows, you’ll need to stake out a spot without the help of the FastPass+ system. And this is just fine with us. Although we’ve used FastPass+ once for viewing Festival of Fantasy, we found that it wasn’t very useful.
Purple MagicBand fans rejoice! Purple is now an option in MyMagic+! When MagicBands were first introduced over 3 years ago, they came in a handful of colors such as red, yellow, orange, green, blue, and pink. But purple was strangely missing from that list. And it has been one of the most requested MagicBand colors ever since. Recently, purple MagicBands have been available for a cost, but they still weren’t available as one of the free choices when planning a Disney World vacation.
Disney is expected to roll out two new features to MyMagic+ this Spring, including one that it seems everyone has been asking for. Currently, Walt Disney World guests are able to pre-select up to 3 attractions per day for FastPass+ (a benefit that lets you skip past the longer standby lines for many attractions). After having used those initial 3 FastPass+ selections, you can go to one of several kiosks in the parks and choose another FastPass+ option (and again until the day is over for additional FastPass+ choices).
