For those that have gotten a Flight of Passage Fastpass, is it possible to get on and off the ride in 45 minutes or less?

This may seem like a strange question but it's really not. It seems sometimes when we use a FP, there's not much fast about it. Yes, when you have a 3+ hour line, it is much definitely faster but other times I swear if it's a 30 to 45 minute wait, depending upon the ride we wait that long in the FP line which defeats the purpose of having gotten the FP. But anyway, with FoP being as popular as it is, if I get FP's for it (Abby wants to try it out) would it be possible to get through the queue, the pre show and the ride in 45 minutes or under? I'm trying to juggle my itinerary for this year and a good time to do this is before our dinner and that is the amount of time I have figured between everything else we want to do and when we have to check in for dinner.

I know there are no guarantees as things could happen but if it seems normal to spend that kind of time in the FP line there, I'll juggle some more and do it at a different time. If most people spend less time in line, I might leave it as is.

TIA for tips/experiences/etc

It's times like this I'm glad I take so many photos, as I could go back and look at the time I took the first photo as we went on Flight of Passage (we used the Disability Access Card, not a Fastpass) and the photos I took when we came out. I thought it would be longer, but the time difference is only about half an hour from start to finishing up in the shop, which surprised me. It felt like longer is all I'll say, as the pre-show felt like it went on forever....

At first I had the dilemma of Abby's DAS or FP for this ride. I chose to go with FP so we can use the DAS for other rides that have shorter wait times (including the river journey). As for the pres-show. I know what you mean. I've seen it online and I think it's long and drawn out. That's good news - for me at least - that you were in there about 30 minutes. And you're not the only one to use photos for the times you do things - I do too.

How did you get 3 of them for this ride? You must have been in the right place at the right time. Every time I've checked Touring Plans (which tells what's left) it always tells me FoP and the river journey have none left. Granted, I'm not going until August so it doesn't matter but I'm just trying to get a sense of what I should pick before we go and what I'll be able to get while there.

I got lucky I guess, I had my computer open with 3 tabs, I always do this on fp day and it was pretty easy to snag all 3. I was sitting and waiting and immediately when 7 hit I made the selections. We also go in August and I'll be sure to be ready again. After our first time riding, we were beyond excited to know we'd ride it 2 more times last trip.
Good luck, it's the most amazing experience.

So I still don't get how you managed to get three FP for this ride - were they all on different days or for one day? And if for one day, how were you allowed three when everything I've read said you can only get 1 FP ahead of time per ride - especially this ride.

I had 3 FP over the course of our 12 day trip. They were not on the same day. They were spread out over the course of our 12 days. I had no problems at my 60 day mark doing my fast passes and on the 3 days we were going to AK, I got 1 Fast Pass for FOP for each of the 3 days we were in Animal Kingdom.
Not sure how else I can explain it.
But yes, we rode it 3x in August utilizing 3 fast passes

Getting them on three different days explains it all. For some reason I was thinking you got them all on the same day and it was really boggling my mind how that could happen and I wanted to know your "secret" for doing it. Now I know - use multiple browsers (which is good thinking actually).
