  • Starting today, Disney has made the changes to FastPass+ where park guests who have used their original three FastPass+ reservations, can head to any FastPass+ kiosk found throughout the park and add a fourth choice. This fourth FastPass reservation will then be a rolling entitlement. Once a guest uses this fourth FastPass+ reservation, they will then be allowed to go back to any FastPass+ kiosk to select yet another FastPass+ to use, and so on.  Also, guests will be able to Park Hop (go from one park to another) within a single day and be able to make FastPass+ reservations in both parks.
