    Indiana Jones Without Fast Pass

    Edit: I know I'll hear it....there is a typo on the subject.

    Since the Fast Pass debate is always an interesting one, I wanted to see what people thought now that we've seen a major attraction go without its Fast Pass service for a while.

    From my observations the standby line waits have gone down signifigantly. Of course I'm not there every week, so maybe I'm not seeing the whole story.

    So is Indy better or worse off without its Fast Pass?

    Since the queue area is so well placed, I doubt a spillage of guests out onto the already-cramped Adventureland "Stroller Gauntlet" will occur. It really is a well-designed piece of business. But better or worse, I can't say for sure.

    Re: Indiana Jones Without Fast Pass

    Fast Pass works on some attractions, should be left out on others. Matterhorn works just fine on standby, and so does Indiana Jones. It was 30 minutes this past saturday night when I went. Iit went by real fast.

    And if there IS a queue to swallow guests up, there's no queue better to do that.


    And on a side note, star tours should get rid of those fast pass machines in front. Absolutely no need for it on that ride.

    Re: Indiana Jones Without Fast Pass

    Speaking of Star Tours, why isn't the second line in the queue used?

    All I have to say is that during the hot summer months I will enjoy the cool darkness that is the Indy queue.

    It is on peak periods. You'll see it in the summer I'm sure.

    I think the idea of Fastpass is great and all, but I don't think it' really works all that well - especially in crowds. I can't tell you how many times I have gone to get a Fastpass and they are either for a ride time that is like 9 hours later or sold out.

    Re: Indiana Jones Without Fast Pass

    I think it's worse, and I'll tell you why....Come back with me, into the year...err...90's ish...

    When there was no fastpass, everyone got to enjoy the completely incredible detail of the queue line. They could use decoder cards, touch the walls and feel around, and just take it all in. Now, since the fastpass, you are almost always rushed to the projection room. After the projection room, there isn't much. A lot of the detail and stuff, in my opinion, is in the caverns and rooms before the projection, But you almost always walk straight through that area into the clogged area around the well,

    I miss being able to take it all in and I think people miss that experience.

    They've been gone for a while now. I've seen the area used for both extended queue and stroller parking since the machines were taken out. All that's left is the awning overhead.

    Re: Indiana Jones Without Fast Pass

    Technically, Indy still has a Fast Pass if you get your hands on a Dream Pass (which I managed to get twice last week). On a Tuesday in the non-summer months, you don't really need one. It was pretty worthless.

    Now on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday or during the busy summer season, I think it still is necessary.

    You mean Indy is BETTER without Fast Pass right? Look at the question again.

    Very true, so can we get ride of the HM ones? Really, just for HMH? The line is longer with it.

    And what's funny, the Millionaire ones at DCA are still there.
