Fast Pass Changes (with Pic)
I got this from WDW News Today:
Apparently, there are some more changes to the fastpass system at the Walt Disney World Resort on the way. Notice in the picture below that they have moved the date stamp on some fastpasses (as well as the addition of a the year of distribution) right underneath the redemption time, as well as greatly improved the size of the text. This is yet another step towards decreasing Fastpass fraud on WDW attractions. One might just wonder why they just don’t start scanning the tickets….
New method of moving the fast pass line?
I'm resurrecting this thread because I'm wondering if there is a new policy as to how guests in the fast pass line are going to board attractions. We were on Everest today and the stand-by line came to a stand still once we got into the last cue line. The cm was taking 1 family or 4 people at a time from the stand-by line and letting the fast pass line through with barely a break. It took forever for us to board. I've never seen the fast pass line move almost non-stop with only a couple people from the stand-by line get to move. The two women ahead of us weren't too pleased to have to wait for 3 or four trains before we got a turn. In fact, if the woman hadn't said that there were 4 (meaning the two of them and us) in their party when we got to the final cm, we would have been waiting for the next train. They even took a bunch of single riders before the stand-by line. It wasn't too big of a surprise when we saw that the stand-by wait had grown from 25 minutes to 45 while we were in the attraction. I wondered if anyone else had experienced this on Everest or any other attraction? Is Disney hoping that everyone will only use fast pass to ride attractions? If so, then guests will need to be able to fast pass more than one attraction at a time.
