Fast pass and Disney hotel fast pass, what’s the difference?

Hi

Hope someone can help. We are staying at Newport bay in August and therefore get a hotel fast pass.

I can’t understand what the difference is between this and a regular fast pass. Don’t you use it and get an allotted time to return to the ride ?

Thanks x

Hotel fp is 1 extra fp per day per person. You don't pre book it at the ride unlike normal fp. You can use it on any fp ride at any time except between 1-3 ( or1-4 can't remember exactly)You just turn up and use it when you want.

Can the hotel fastpass be used even when the fastpasses for a particular ride are gone for the day? Like if popular rides like BTM are gone by lunchtime, could I still show up at the ride at 5pm to use the hotel fastpass?

As others have said there is difference in instant use and when regular run out. In our case these were invaluable we found. With 2 young kids it was so useful to be able to use there and then apart from the 1 to 4pm restriction and also we found lot fast passes gone by mid morning and that was mid week.

Do you automatically get one of these when you stay in a Disney hotel 🤔
