    Not true. Since it's tied to the ticket, they still only get their one fastpass at a time. It would be exactly like the system now, but without all the walking.

    Oh, and by the way, if we're talking unfair advantages for a Disneyland experience, there's allready several. Like checking Disneyland.com For times and tickets, using MiceChat to find out Fastpass tips, etc.

    I think it would only work in Tomorrowland. Who wants computers all over Frontierland??!

    Well, I kinda think that right there would be an unfair advantage. Let's say you and I are standing outside Space Mountain and we both want a Splash Mountain Fastpass. You have your PDA, but I have to walk across the park. Now let's say the parade is rolling through right about now. So, who gets the better return time?

    The hotel is good enough for me. I wish it went into the lobbies and not just lost bar but the lost bar ain't bad.

    The person walking, because there are only a limited number of eFastPasses. When eFastPasses sell out, there still may be regular one's available (but never visa-versa).

    If Disney can somehow convince people to spend 50 bucks to come into the park and sit at a bench and surf the Internet - I'd be all for it.

    Re: Wireless Internet Stations inside Disneyland

    I don't think that Wireless Hotspots in DL resturants would be a good idea. At least not during peak season. When it's crowded, I rather not people tying up a table surfing the net when others are looking for a place to sit down and eat.

    In the off season, it might not be an issue.

    It'd be really great if they would put this kinda stuff like wireless internet into Tmmorowland! It would really fit in with the theme and bring the crowds over again!!!

    Thumbs down Re: Wireless Internet Stations inside Disneyland

    This just brings in way too much responsibility for Disney as well as way way too much of the real world. The idea is to escape, not turn Disneyland into a Starbucks. Innoventions access to VMK is good enough for what the park stands for.

    Think about what people would be looking at on their computers, what's to stop them from using it for pornography and so forth. Then again sure say they can block it, people might still have it on their laptops and that computer still comes into the park and can be seen.

    Also with wireless access in Tomorrowland, do we really want people on their laptops during attactions, like Space or Star Tours? We all hate flashes on rides enough this is just something that is not needed.

    Re: Wireless Internet Stations inside Disneyland

    I very much doubt that Disney wants a bunch of AP'ers with laptops turning Disneyland into their own private office, especially when the park is busy and seating for people actually buying food can already be scarce.
