WDW Theme Parks Discuss "Paying it forward... with Fastpass" in the Vacation Planning forums; This is a great idea! Since we are the kind of people to leave in the middle of the day for a nap/dip in the pool, we can do it ...

    This is a great idea! Since we are the kind of people to leave in the middle of the day for a nap/dip in the pool, we can do it mid-day plus at the end of our day (small kids really complicate going to Disney).

    That is such a kind idea.....very 'Disney!'
    Last year I got some free child tickets for our local theme park through school. I went with bf and his 3 kids, but we had a spare ticket. I gave it to the woman in the queue in front of me and she was so pleased! We kept seeing her round the park all day and she kept saying thanks!

    I'm not really sure if this tradition isn't carried on over on the west coast, but we wound up doing this on multiple occassions in Disneyland on our July trip. We booked with AAA, so we had the "Enhanced" Fastpass option, in which you can get a Fastpass for every attraction that has it at one time; you don't have to wait for the time window in order to get the next one. Needless to say, we wound up with tons of Fastpasses that we weren't able to use, so we passed them on to a number of people. Each time we did, the people always looked at us like this was some amazing idea that no one had ever thought of, other people looked at us suspiciously as if we were giving them fake passes, and still other just didn't understand what we were trying to do. We were certainly happy to give out Fastpasses to people, but there doesn't seem to be the same trend for Paying it Forward out at Disneyland and California Adventure.

    Thanks for that wonderful idea....we're going to WDW in September, and we will be sure to do this. Our trip is without the kids, so we will be doing alot of park hopping!

    This is just another reason why Disney is so magical.... the fans themselves are magical people. I really don't think, in any other fandom, that you see such kindness and generosity and just plain thoughtfulness...

    We thought it was great until we tried to give ours to a family near Splash Mountain and they looked at my wife as if she was pushing crack. Sometimes you cannot please everyone

    AHAHAHAHAHA That made me laugh pretty hard.

    The other day a guy tried to hand my BF and I a type of fast pass that you can get when a ride breaks down, but he only had one. We asked a CM at Space Mountain and he got us another no problem! Another time, a guy tried to give us fast passes that had well expired, but that was very generous of him anyway. I love Disney People.

    I have given out Fastpasses that have been "expired" often, although I'm not really sure what you mean. As long as the Fastpass is from the same day as when you are in the park, the CM's should accept it at the attraction, even after the time slot has already passed.

    Spread the joy! That's our motto. We love to do this when we visit Disney and our efforts have been rewarded on those trips but not just in disney parks. In Old Town we were playing in the games arcade and a man just walked over and gave my kids hundreds of tickets and left without a word! On a previous holiday in Las Vegas a young couple as they were leaving the Circus Circus arcade gave my daughter a stuffed animal toy and my son a few quarters. Do unto others...

    What a wonderful way to share the magic. I will try to remember this on turkey day when we go back!
    This is your badness level.
