My 4 year old son takes GREAT pride in handing his AP over to the ticket taker when we visit the park. This plus the fact I watched the ticket taker take and scan my son's card I am 100% positive it was scanned and taken and approved (he was the first in our party to enter the park and went thru the gate).
So - by request of the kids we head straight for Space Mt. and stop and get fastpasses before we go to wait in line so we can make a quick 2nd ride later in the day. I put his AP into the machine and out pops one of those "This is not a valid fastpass ticket, your ticket was not used for admission" tickets.
Now, I know for a fact it WAS used so me being the hard-head I am pop it in again only to get the same result. Well - I am a hard-head and I KNEW this thing was wrong so I kept putting his AP in the machine. On the 5th (I think) try it worked! Out popped a useable fastpass ticket.
Now I wonder if the machine just gave up or what happened.. and yes - his AP worked to get fastpasses for the rest of the day.
Just thought this was odd and wondered if anybody else has had this happen to them.
