What is a Fast Lane Pass?

A Fast Lane pass gives riders access to a separate line, where riders can get to the front of the line much quicker than regular lines (for select rides).

Once a Fast Lane pass has been purchased, riders will be given a wristband that will signify to park staff, that you have access to the Fast Lane line.

Throughout the line, there will be various checkpoints where you will need to show your wristband to park staff, and ride operators. These checkpoints are normally in the beginning of the line, and ride before boarding the ride.

Daily Price Changes

Prices aren't the same for each day, and are typically more expensive on the weekends.

You'll want to click through the Fast Lane Calendar to see the different pricing options available.

Is a Reservation Required?

No. Unlike other parks where a reservation must be made days ahead (and sometimes weeks), despite having the actual pass, all that you need is the actual wristband and you can head straight to the Fast Lane line.

When Should I Get a Fast Lane Pass?

Skip Waiting in Lines

If you're not a fan of waiting in lines, and are looking to ride the most rides possible in the shortest span of time, a Fast Lane pass will be a great fit for you.

The nice thing about this pass, is that you're able to get back in line immediately after riding as well.

If you've ever waited in a regular line, there's a good chance that you have seen Fast Lane riders ride the ride multiple times, before you've been able to ride it once.

Traveling With Kids
