    World of Color Fastpass -Can I Get Passes For Guests Not In The Park?

    Does anybody know if you need to have physically entered the park to get a Fastpass for WoC?

    Our family has season passes and wants to go tomorrow night (7/1). I was hoping to drive to the park by myself in the morning with our 4 SoCal passes and pick up passes for all of us.

    The Disney Resort site says to use your "scanned pass" to get the Fastpass. Does that mean that you have to have gone through the gate and had your individual season pass scanned to get a Fastpass? I will be by myself, so the other 3 SoCal passes won't get scanned at the gate. Does that mean those 3 passes won't work at the Fastpass machine at GRR?

    Will the gate checkers scan all four passes for me so my entire family doesn't need to make two trips to DL tomorrow?

    No.

    The passes need to be activated for day. So no, you can't go with people's passes and get FPs for WoC.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Looks like I need a different strategy.

    As Raindown said
    The passes need to be activated.
    Some friends tried to go w/ everyone's tickets
    and found out that they can't get FP for WOC if they haven't entered the park yet.

    This is true w/ ALL FP machines.

    If you go in the park w/ a standard ticket
    and upgrade to an AP, you need to be rescanned into the park b/c the new AP pass also won't work at the FP machines.

    Learned this the hard way. I visited on Monday hoping to get my friend a fast pass (he had a test so he couldnt meet up as early with the rest of us) and was clearly rejected from the system. The CM assisting with fastpasses said to try and check back later before the show and they'll try to accommodate him into the group. We did just that and they were able to place them in a yellow section spot for the 11:15 show with the rest of us.

    I was talking about Annual (Season is basically the same thing).
    Just adding a few more points on when FP machines won't work.

    Let's take it 1 step further..Does anyone know if 3 people enter Disneyland with passes, but 1 person takes off and the other 2 swipe into DCA if the pass will be valid?

    I'd love to get tix for the fam, but the wife has to work..She would be able to swipe into disneyland since they open earlier then leave me with her pass..

    The ticket just needs to be activated.
    So if your wife has to work, but went to the park to activate the ticket/pass
    Yes, it should work.
    Just make sure you meet her outside in the Esplanade to give her ticket/pass back to her.
    I wouldn't to pass it through the gate....Disney might not care..but it's better to not have questions ask by Disney security.

    If it's an AP, not sure that would work.
    Your picture is flashed up on the screen.
    And if your male and trying to activate for an AP for female passholder...I think eyebrows might be raised as your attempting that.

    Just paper tickets.... I guess it could work.

    eh, I wouldn't... they stamp your hands for a reason.

    If you enter a second time with the pass, it scans it as "RE-ENTRY", which clues in the CM's to check the glow-in-the-dark hand stamps.

    If your entire family is sans hand stamps, they'll run a security check on you.
