Default Give me the scoop on paid fast passes!

We have a concierge stay in the fall and plan to buy the paid fast passes.

Has anyone purchased them? If so, any tips you can share?

Can you do paid FP at one park and regular at another?

Where you successful at 90 days out getting the rides you wanted?

I am...all ears!😇🤣

You’re pretty much guaranteed to get what you want at 90 days (from check-out day btw). How could you not?

Your CL FPs can be at any park, split however you want. On the days you get the CL FPs, Signature Services will also book your regular FPs too. You can not duplicate or overlap any of the FPs and the regular FPs follow the same rules as always. You will not be able to change the CL ones yourself any time, only Signature Services or CL Concierge, plus maybe GS can do that. If they book your regular ones, you will be able to modify those at your normal 60 day window.

So if at DHS, you could book all 3 tier 1 rides, plus three others.
Or you could book regular FPs at AK and then the tier 1 rides at DHS using the CL ones.
Or you could use the CL ones to get FoP, MMRR and Smuggler’s Run all on the same day.

Many people will get the regular ones first, so they can try for even more on the day. The CL ones do not prevent you searching for extra.

Remember not everyone in the room needs to get them. And the days you get them do not have to be consecutive; you can choose a minimum of 3 days between check-in and check-out day at CL. And you can cancel them if you change your mind.

I guess the only caveat is that this isn’t guaranteed to still be available in the Fall.

What Nicky said.....


At 90 days out, your fastpass selections are secured. The really nice feature is that Concierge will do all the booking for you!

Great info! I was wondering if you could split parks. Thanks!

I didn't realize they would book everything. That makes life a bit easier. Thank you!

One more thing.

It seems that for non-DVC club level stays, Signature Services contact the guest ahead of the 90 window and ask if they would like to book the extra FPs. And even if they would like to purchase the “package”.

However for DVC, whether in a cabin, bungalow, AKL club level or a GV, they don’t seem to do this consistently.

So therefore make sure you
a) phone and book the “package”
and
b) phone as you approach the 90 day mark and let them know what FPs you’re wanting; you can email in a list of rides, times and which type of FPs for each.

Thanks - good info. I had inquired previously about when I could book and they did let me know at the 90 day mark. I have given some thought to the rides but I guess I better get everything in order!

Not that it will ever affect me, but does a GV count as concierge/club level? Isn't it just a really big suite? Bungalows and cabins make sense to me, but not a GV.

It does for this programme. Announced (very quietly) back in the Fall, I think.
