fast pass question

If I get to a park and get a FP and I'm not able to use it till 5 hours later does it mean that I can't get another FP for 5 hours (after that one expires) or is it a certain amount of time? Thanks.

I would be sitting on the patio of the Fontana bar at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas watching the dancing fountains on a warm balmy night whilst sipping vintage Champagne

In that case you would be able to get another fast pass 2 hours after you got that one. You can get the next fast pass either at the start of the previous fast pass time or 2 hours after you got the previous fast pass, which ever time occurs first.

The rule of thumb is usually two hours from the first request, or sometimes less. For instance, on July 3 in the MK we got fast passes and were allowed to get another in 90 minutes. The time when you can get your next FP is printed right on the FP.

Thanks I've used fp before but it's been a while and I'm not too good at retaining information. Having those 4 kids really sucked out some brain cells. Now I can try to figure my days some to hit all the good stuff.

Rule #1: You can get a new Fastpass when it says you can get a new Fastpass on the Fastpass you most recently obtained.

Rule #2: How long it will be varies, but the general rule of thumb is either the return time of the previous Fastpass or two hours after you obtained the previous Fastpass, whichever is sooner.

Rule #3: There are always exceptions, so always refer to Rule #1.

If there are always exceptions, wouldn't that mean that there are never any exceptions?
