Disney World theme-park guests will be able to use FastPass+ an unlimited number of times as of Monday. Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, confirmed the change Thursday.
Since testing began, users have been limited to three per day, all within the same park. FastPass+ enables people to make advance reservations for select rides, shows and parades. The service, free of charge, is part of a Disney's billion-dollar project to assist vacation planning.
Here's how it will work: After using three passes, guests will select another one at any FastPass+ kiosk in the parks. After using the fourth FastPass+, the process can be repeated for a fifth pass, and so on.
The My Disney Experience app tied to the FastPass+ program will not be used initially to get additional passes.
"We are working on ways to make this available on the app," a Disney World spokeswoman said Thursday.
Visitors also will be able to move from park to park and get an additional FastPass+ when the changes kick in next week, Staggs said. The "parkhopping" can only occur after the first three passes are used, the spokeswoman said.
