Some additional changes have been announced for the MyMagic+ program at the Walt Disney World Resort as it applies to the related FastPass+ system. These changes are in addition to the expansion of the program put in place a few weeks ago which, for the first time, allowed for all guests (including those not staying at one of the many Disney owned hotels) to reserve times in advance of their arrival at some attractions and experiences in the parks.
