Why can’t I get fast passes for Anna and Elsa Meet and Greet?

I’m sure you have heard with the new Fast Pass+ service at Disney you can start your day with up to 3 FP+ experiences per theme park, per day, and I know you have heard about the movie “Frozen” that is sweeping the nation. The love for Anna and Elsa are filling the hearts of children and adults around the world. The meet and greet at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is one of the most popular at the park right now. Everyone and their mom(or dad) are trying to add this Fast Pass to their itinerary on vacation since the stand by line has been up to a 5 hour wait. Good news is, Anna and Elsa have a Fast Pass to bypass the stand by. Bad news is, getting them isn’t so easy.

You can start your day with up to 3 Fast Pass+ experiences for a theme park, per day. When you purchase just your tickets in advance you can book your Fast Passes up to 30 days prior to the date. If you purchased your tickets and are also staying at a on-site Disney Property, you can book your Fast Passes up to 60 days prior to your Check in date for your whole vacation. So hopefully knowing that, you will have a chance to snag up that Fast Pass, and save some waiting on your trip.

However, if you’re planning a last minute trip or just didn’t get to beat everyone to it, I have a few tips for you. Unfortunately some people have to cancel their magical vacations and the reservations and Fast Passes along with it. So keep checking!! Up until the day you go, give it a shot. Still no luck? When you are visiting the Magic Kingdom on your vacation, go when the park opens for rope drop. Not only will the show bring a tear of joy to your eye, but you can head straight over to Princess Fairytale Hall and try to beat the crowd. Now, if you had a late night or couldn’t find your Disney bounding outfit, there is one last chance. Go during one of the main events, like the Festival of Fantasy parade. While everyone is standing and watching it you can go and try to wait in a short(er) stand by line. Not the best scenario, but maybe your little princess just HAS to ask Anna and Elsa if they want to build a snowman, or their trip is ruined. Hope this helped, and good luck!

  1. We went on Dec. 30 afterMidnight with the extra magic hours and waited for 15-20 minutes. Anna and Elsa were the only princesses not sleeping and we had a magical visit.
    We had gotten to the MK at 7am, went back to the room for a nap and came back to the MK for the fireworks at 9 and the Incredible New Years Eve fireworks at Midnight.
    It was the most amazing show with fireworks going off 360 degrees around the MK.

  2. We went the first week of December and didnt have a FP+ for Anna and Elsa. At the end of 1 of the nights in MK, the standby wait was 65 minutes….we went ahead and got in line since we were done for the day anyway, and ended up only waiting about 30 minutes!!! It was seriously the best surprise and the best “extra” to our trip considering we had “wrote” it off since we couldn’t get a FP+. So I suggest if the wait time isn’t extremely long, give it a shot and you may luck up like we did.
