10 Misconceptions About Walt Disney World

Castle FastPass

8. You have to pay for FastPass.

Not at Disney, you don’t. “It must be nice to have the extra money to pay to cut all the lines.” Have you ever heard that comment as you walk briskly past the people waiting in the standby queue? I’ve heard it more than once. Even though it is widely publicized, many park guests mistakenly wait all day in lines, not knowing they are able to use FastPass+.

The only truth to the “paying to cut the lines” comment at Disney World are people who do the VIP tours; they don’t have to wait in line, and yes, they paid a pretty penny for their personal tour guide experience. You may go on an entire Disney trip and never see a family using a VIP tour guide, so this is not the reason that your wait for the Seven Dwarves Mine Train is 80 minutes.
