    Re: Fast Pass Systems For Parades

    Parades, I don't get, I've never seen an issue seeing a Parade, even getting there near start time due to the fact they're usually easy to see due to the size.

    But Fantasmic would be different, I could see them roping off the main section in the front and offering fastpass for that area, and allow others to stand-by. It would remove the sea of blankets for 8 hours before the show starts. (Really, I think time has come for the Blankets/Towels to be collected by Disney if they're there more than an hour before the show, they're 1) A Hazard, and 2) Bad Show.)

    I agree. I too dislike how everything in WDW is a reservation, some required 6 months in advance, but I think the blankets and towels look ugly. Since Fantasmic already has a specific viewing area, I think FP would be relatively easy. And a good part of Fantasmic is that if you DON'T get in that area, like you don't pick up a FP, you can still find a decent place to watch elsewhere, so it doesn't have to be FP or you miss the show.

    A couple of things. First, they're just testing the idea to see if such a thing would fly, and how it would fly. It's not a sure thing by any means at WDW. The whole thing stems from the fact that the implimentation of fastpasses at WDWR and DLR are a bit different (even though it doesn't appear much different to park guests). The WOC Fastpass was a stroke of genius Anaheim came up with that had absolutely no involvement or input from Orlando team members. Well, it's turned out to be so soccessful that Orlando is looking at the possibility of modifying it to service parade audiences. But that also means having space for dedicated viewing areas that can be locked down, a la the WOC viewing area. My understanding is that WDWR has the advantage of space.

    Now, at DLR, space is a huge issue. Jus tto create a viewing area for Fantasmic and WOC were huge undertakings requiring the installation of some serious infrastructure. There simply isn't any space for this in Anaheim.

    Of course, this even precludes the idea that Anaheim would float an idea. Currently, such a thing hasn't remotely been considered, and unless we break open a dissure in the crust and spit out sme more land, I don't think this will be given serious consideration any time in the near future.
