Fastpass app??

Someone told me today that there is an app for the iPhone that you can look up wait times, fastpass times and you can get a fastpass on your phone without actually going to the attraction to get it. True or false? I'm thinking this is not true because I can't find anything, but sounds like a GREAT idea!!!!!!

True--Disney Mobile Magic is one, and the one I trust the most. However, it is location-enabled and only does this for the park you are currently in.

1. Yes My Disney Experience or Disney's Mobile Magic. They are both official apps from Dinsey. MDE is their newest app and is probably going to replace DMM. Some people including mesaboy2 have used both apps in the parks and at least a few weeks ago MDE didn't seam to be correct but it just out and may still be in beta testing. With DMM you have to be in the park to see real actual wait times. For MDE you can see them anywhere including at my desk at work.

2. No

If you are subscribed to touringplans.com, they also have an app called "Lines". Very fast and useful as well.

I used Mobile Magic, and it was very accurate. However, you can not get FastPasses on your phone, you have to physically go to the ride and get them. But it does give the times that the fast pass is distributing for.

Good catch, I missed that part of the OP's question. At current, there is no app that does this, but that may change with the eventual adoption of FP+.

Stick to using Mobile Magic for now. I found My Disney Experience to be inaccurate and frustrating.

Can you see FP return times from home on the new one? I looked at it briefly yesterday and I thought it just said if they were available and not the times. Or do you need to be in the park to see the times?

I'm sitting a thousand miles away and the Stand by time for Space Mountain is 10 min with a 3:50 - 4:50 FP return line.
