    Fastpass return times to be enforced starting next month

    According to Al Lutz this morning, they will start enforcing fastpass return times next month, with a little grace period until the Christmas holidays.

    Well that pretty much ruined my vacation for March. Now how am I supposed to ride Space Mountain 8 times a day?

    Re: Fastpass return times to be enforced starting next month

    I am convinced that lines will be significantly shorter with fastpass, especially at night. So many people would wait to cash in their fastpasses until late at night, that the posted wait-times were rarely close to the actual ones. I remember after Star Tours re-opened, roughly 500 people lined up in the fastpass line after the fireworks. It was a total joke and a slap in the face to the system. I understand that more PEOPLE will be in line, but the lines themselves will actually move in a faster, more steady pace with fewer people abusing the system. Finally, Disney, FINALLY!

    That is awesome! Great news. Maybe now the system can work like it is supposed to.

    There goes the resort. Seriously, this combined with nextgen, tracking bracelets, christmas and halloween offerings going to paid parties, the resort is sounding less and less fun and more of a dictatorship with the mouse up top. So sad.
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

    Does this mean that we will only be able to ride during the hour time frame it shows on FP and not anytime after that time frame? Thanks for answering. Just making sure I understand.

    No, actually it will improve the resort by forcing people to follow the rules and return within their window thus not clogging up the return lines later in the day. It may also mean that fast passes are available later in the day because people would not get them as early if they had no intention of riding until later.

    Yes, thankfully.

    Re: Fastpass return times to be enforced starting next month

    This (and Iron Man) are the only positive things I took from Al's article this morning. This is LONG overdue.

    I know people complain about the different "skip the line" systems at Six Flags that people have to pay for, but those have a time-limit that are STRICTLY enforced. And I've seen some of those only have a limit of about 10 minutes once your ride-time arrives.

    If it's good enough for Six Flags right?

    Never having seen it actually work as it was supposed to, this will be interesting.
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    Move and clap your hands,
    Get into the Spirit
    Let everyone hear it,
    So come on, come on

    The park would probably work better without any fastpass.
