    Re: Fastpass to be inforce starting tomorrow

    We were going to get the PAP on our trip to DW last November but after the CM turned us away from TOT because we were ten minutes late -stuck in the Fantasmic crowd my DF said that he had it with the FP return policy. I am so sad to see this happening here at our home park. Our DW trip was not worth it we decided. We only got in 4-6 rides a day in early November. We used to be able to knock out the whole park in that time. I am glad we got one last trip in December to DL before they started this. Such a sad day IMO. We will be spending our vacation dollars on cruises instead.

    This is a great example of what the guests could get mad about. It's not so much that guests intend to abuse the system (even though I believe that some do) it's that guests may feel like they can no longer get the most value out of their future trips to the parks.
    Many Bothans died to bring you these fastpasses.

    ^I'm not against rules just FP is a system that seems like they either need to change the rules or stretch them a little to allow people to have a more enjoyable day...you might be late to your ride because a ride broke down or a parade or you waited for another ride it said it would take 15 mins...but took an hour

    Re: Fastpass to be inforce starting tomorrow

    What's funny is everyone is thinking this is meant to help the FP system work better. The only reason it's even changing is to accomodate the new FP system or mymagic+. This will not help the stand by lines like everyone hopes. In all reality it will be about the same just like WDW has been. It's not like everyone who gets FPs decides at 8pm they are all going to cash them in. I have always felt this is a exageration of how many people abuse the system. The real test will be when the new system comes online. If it pulls from a different pool of FPs and adds it to the current pool the lines technically would be longer. That's what I am more curious to see the effect of.

    Holy geez a lot of people sure are getting upset about a FREE service. You do have the option of not using it if it impacts your life that negatively. Now you can say that you paid for the service with your park admission but it is optional.

    And for people asking for a longer grace period, why not treat the first time as the time to return rather than the second time as the return time. That way you have an hour grace period.

    Attack me if you want. I fully admit that I have abused the system and rarely returned during the marked time. Am I going to stop going to Disneyland (or Disney World) because of FP changes...absolutely not. It just means I (and my party) will just have to go with the flow.
    I actually heard this said by a CM over the loud speakers at Big Thunder in 1995, "Please do not sit on the rocks. You will fall...and you will die."

    Thanks for the news WoC 95 and Stormy!
    Oh no, you have to follow the rules....glad to see you go.

    At this point I am hoping it is true and does happen, so it stops the FP argument threads every week.

    The main reason people are upset is because Disney has allowed everyone to break the rules by not enforcing return times. Guests have become used to getting FP tickets and being able to return whenever they want.
    Please... put Guardians of the Galaxy in Tomorrowland.

    There is nothing vague about "return between x time and x time".

Abuse is a strong word that insinuates that all those who used their fp's after the return time were doing something horribly wrong.
    Great post.

    This will really change how we go about our day at the 2 parks. For as long as we have been going it has been our practice to hit Space first grabbing a FP then riding the ride. Then before we leave the park for the day we use that FP for Space. It has always been our first and last ride of the day - and it worked becaue we were usually tired and would not wait in the line at the end of the day.

    Oh well, it was great while it lasted.
