Spending A Day Without FastPasses

No comments

So you found yourself inside one of Disney’s parks and you don’t have a single FastPass for the day. For whatever reason; last second trip, haven’t read the Planning Your First Trip section or you just like to relax in the parks.

There are tons of things still do even if you don’t have any pre-booked FastPasses. Let’s take a look!

Before we start I want to get the obvious out of the way, just because you did not book FastPasses 30-60 days out does not mean that you will not get any.

Many attractions will be available day of, the top tier ones will most likely not be. But each day early morning and around noon additional FastPasses are released, so check the app often!


The real attraction of Walt Disney World is all of the dining. The attractions are just to kill time between meals.

Not even looking at the resorts or Disney Springs the four parks offer tons of great options.

Between character meals, signature dining and quick service you can eat all day every day and always have something new to try!

Park Entertainment

Each park has it’s own unique entertainment for guests to enjoy throughout the day, including nighttime shows!

At Magic Kingdom guests can enjoy the daily parade, as well as other shows throughout the day.

The exhibits offered at Epcot offer guests a look into the different cultures around the world.

Over at Hollywood Studios guests can enjoy the Citizens of Hollywood.

And at Animal Kingdom guests can partake in Animal Encounters.


Each of the parks has great shopping for guests to enjoy.

The Magic Kingdom shops feature souvenirs themed to your favorite, classic attractions.

At the Epcot shops guests can enjoy the unique options around World Showcase or the largest theme park shop in Mouse Gear.

The Hollywood Studios shops feature great apparel options, many themed to your favorite movies.

The Animal Kingdom shops feature souvenirs themed to the different lands of the park.

Park Hop

If you do not have any FastPasses then you have the freedom to move around!

Park Hopping, of course requires a special ticket, but it allows you to jump around between parks.

With all the different modes of transportation between parks getting there is part of the fun!

With all the things to do beyond the attractions do not fret if you cannot book those coveted FastPasses, Disney definitely has you covered!

Fore even more fun you can even spend a day outside the parks!
