    Re: Fastpass to be inforce starting tomorrow

    Yay!! Next trip, I will definitely be taking advantage of this. I'm curious to see how or if it impacts wait times.

    Re: Fastpass to be inforce starting tomorrow

    I would prefer the signs stating you "must" return within your hour window, but this makes me very happy. It will be interesting to see how and if the rule is enforced.
    Merrily on our way to nowhere at all.

    Personally I don't think this way is going to last to long. I know this is for NextGen but I think there would be to many people complaining it would go back to the old way

    Yeah but Disney has spent over a Billion Dollars on there new system, and for it to work accurately FP times must be enforced. They wont let it die. Besides Disney doesn't have to offer FastPass, its more of nice perk, allot of other parks charge you for front of the line pass.

    Ive always followed fast pass times, I didn't even know you could do this until I started reading MiceChat. I always assumed if you returned after the time the pass wouldn't work. This will mainly only effect locals and AP who abuse the system. If anything I am glad there doing this. Have you ever tried to redeem a FP for your actual time frame and there happens to be a parade or fireworks that just finished? What a nightmare, the FP line will stretch out into the main streets because of people abusing the system.

    Re: Fastpass to be inforce starting tomorrow

    I've heard from cast members at WDW that guests never really became upset about the enforced Fastpass times there. While guest reaction could be different on the west coast, I think it's already understood that being able to show up late was a bonus anyway.

    Enforcing the times is a very reasonable expectation. It will benefit both guests waiting in the Fastpass line and also in standby. Personally, I've always believed Fastpass was a mistake to begin with, but at least this should help curb some issues it has caused.

    Yep! I could choose not to use Fastpass at all.

    I agree with all you've said, but I think the reason there may be potential for more upset is that DLR has more local and AP crowds. WDW has more tourists who may not be aware of the "secrets" such as a lack of enforcement on return times. It seems more DLR regulars are in the know.

    Good luck to the CMs!! Let's hope people remain decent.

    And...they did give them a "soft opening of 1day"! Was the picture of the reminder sign not taken on Thursday? Last time I checked, that's not the weekend yet, unless you're talking Thanksgiving, which this isn't.
    There seems to be a range of people here who: either didn't know about the late returns being allowed, or people like me who heard about it here, but didn't take advantage of it out of principal, to people who knew about it, and were so conditioned to doing it, that doing without it is going to seriously throw a wrench into their visits.
    And you've got people desperately claiming that "it's not going to work. Too many people will complain". Well, what are people going to do, storm City Hall and take hostages? It will work. And of course, lines are still going to be long. As a park guest, you probably won't be able to see how it's making a difference, but that doesn't mean that it won't be.

    This. Lots of good mojo to the CMs going into the weekend!

    The way I see it at this point is that just about every other Disney park on the planet is already on board with this. Tokyo and Paris have been doing this all along, WDW is now doing this, and the world hasn't ended. I'm sure some at DLR will be upset. However they've been able to enforce return times at numerous other Disney properties and I'd be surprised if there was enough drama at DLR to stop them from enforcing here.

    Re: Fastpass to be inforce starting tomorrow

    There may be more problems here that at the other parks, or , who knows, maybe less. It won't be anything that they can't handle. Like I said before, the worst thing that could happen is that somebody could get violent, at which point, security could issue then a "FastPass" out to Harbor Blvd., and ban them from the parks. Or maybe they could turn them over to Anaheim P.D., if it gets to that. Actually, I think some of these people will get to City Hall/Chamber of Commerce, see that there's a line there, and then have a hissy fit when they find that they can't go to the head of that line.
