    Yah isn't that weird. Even waiting in line for 3 hours for indy didn't seem so bad, (mostly cause you got to be in the nice air conditioned cave that whole time), and because later at night you could walk right on before the days of FP. I remember one trip I rode 4 times after 11 pm. I think back in the day people assumed lines would always be long, so they got their rides in early and then never looked back. Wouldn't that be nice to have again.

    youknow I'd heard they'd consider removing Buzz's fastpass after the 50th or so (basicaly they'd review the popularity vs capacity and decide if fastpass is worth it)

    Usually the wait for ST now is about 5-10 min. On summer days I'd say it's about 30-40 min. The day I went, the wait was about 2 min. So... I don't think it really NEEDS one esp with Buzz all up in its business.

    Actualy between Buzz and Space Star Tours will probably see more buisness as people who have fastpasses to either of those look for something to do while they wait I'd expect to see Star Tours lines a little longer but that's actualy all the MORE reason for it not to have FP

    yeah Just the fact that tomorrowland is more busy will bring plenty of guests to all the older tomorrowland attractions, ie autopia and star tours. Next attraction that needs its fastpass machines permanantly shut off IMO is big thunder mtn railroad. Its got such a high capacity to the point that without fastpass it would almost always be less than a 30 minute wait, similar to what star tours is doing lately. and like star tours that line will immediately begin dropping down to less than 20 minutes the minute the park slows down. It would be a great way to get more guests off the walkways without making them wait in hour long+ lines.

    True about Big Thunder, but I still see no need for Fastpass on Autopia, Roger Rabbit, and Screamin'.

    There's not enough room, plus due to it's such limited cap., it would only lengthen lines.

    The line for Indiana Jones from the hub with a switchback or two on the sidewalk now occupied by an ice cream cart, going through Adventureland with crowd control breaks, into the outdoor queue and through the entire indoor queue was only 75 minutes when the ride first opened. The line kept moving so it never felt long when you waited in it.

    When did it ever have a 3 hour line? Only with possibly Fastpass, but even then it seems a little long.

    Now a 90 minute stand-by is common place for Indiana Jones.

    Think about it 75 minutes from the hub or 3-5 hour return time with Fastpass and a dead slow 90 minute stand-by. I'd opt for NO FASTPASS and having everyone wait 75 minutes. I doubt Indiana Jones would even see lines that long now. Its popularity has diminished some. It's still popular, but it doesn't have that new attraction appeal like 1995 and 1996.

    FastPass is a disaster IMO.

    NO! If DL starts to try to give Fantasyland attractions FP like they have done at WDW it will only make things worse. The line gets longer than imaginable for Peter Pan and Pooh at WDW on slower days. The CMs were even having trouble trying to attempt to balance the FP for Pooh with stand-by and the FP line was constant. That is NOT what DL needs... ever!

    I agree 100% that the small dark rides in Fantasyland are no place for Fastpass. Let WDW deal with that mess. Peter Pan at DLP has fastpass as well......just not a good idea on these low capacity rides IMHO. Mullhollan Madness is another example of a low capacity ride that should not have Fastpass, but since DCA fails to bring in large crowds this has never been an issue.

    I like Fast Pass for Indy, Buzz, and Splash Mountain in DL. It does let me domore of what I want to do with my time, to a degree.

    BTMRR? Eh...I have never used it there and will not stand in the huge line there, period. Star Tours? I just go early or wait until later, when the line disappears.

    To me, the biggest shame about Fast Pass is that I do not get to spend time in the Indy queue, which is amazingly well done.
