    Fastpass machines functional during off-peak days?

    I had heard that on some off-peak days, the FASTPASS machines are turned off.

    We'll be in DL on Wed thru Fri this week - could anyone make an educated guess as to if the FASTPASS machines for Autopia, Indy, Space Mtn, BTMRR, etc will be functional?

    Guess I'm making an assumption that this week is still off-peak, but we'll have to see about that.

    Thx!!!

    I can't say for sure, but I'd imagine that even though it's still an off season, they would still have fastpasses for those big attractions.

    If the FP machines are not on, then the lines were probably not that long.

    Exactly - if FastPasses would be helpful, the machines should be on. I really don't know when they get turned off exactly, but it's never been a problem for me. I'm a FastPass addict, but there are some days when they just wouldn't do any good.

    We usally go during off-season and mid-week. The fastpass machines we use have been on, unless it is a slow day, as has been stated.

    Heres a list of FP Attractions that stay on during the off season weekdays:

    Indiana Jones Adventure
    Space Mountain
    Splash Mountain
    Haunted Mansion Holiday (I think)
    Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin (I think)
    Autopia
    Big THunder Mountain doesn't have FPs during those times.

    DCA:

    California Screamin'
    Soarin'

    GRR and TOT I'm not sure.

    To the OP: Pick up an entertainment guide at the gate or City Hall. At the bottom, it'll tell you which attractions have FPs for that day and it'll tell you the days available.

    One attraction that rarely has Fastpass during slow days is BLAB. It usually has a 5 minute wait then anyways.

    From my usual February off-season trips I've made for the last few years this is what I have learned (Wed & Thurs only):

    On, On, On, Off

    I've always been able to get Autopia and Space Fps. Big Thunder I've never seen use FP, and Indy is hit or miss, though I've never experienced "miss".
