    Question How do you get the Year of a Million Dreams fastpass?

    i had an annual pass for two years and practically went once a week and my friends and family have never been given those blue fast passes! where about do they usually pass them out? any tips/suggestions for winning them? i'm going in may to celebrate an anniversary & a birthday and would love to make the day that much more special by getting one!

    thanks!

    Go early in the morning and in areas where people don't normally go.

    I've never receved one from Disney, but this is what I was told to do.

    The one I got was given to us by some nice APers who wern't going to use them.

    we one them in the haunted mansion lobby once and on the bridge going to the wharf area in dca once. The same day we won the pass in the haunted mansion we were walking by storybook land ride and they were handing them out at the exit, but those are the only three times we have ever seen them hand stuff out.

    Abandon all hope of ever winning them and that's when you'll get them for sure. At least, that's how it seems to me! Heh.

    I have seen people who've won them at the following places and times:

    1. at DCA --
    a. exiting Mailboomer at about 11am when park opens at 10am;
    b. exiting the library at ToT at about 2pm;
    c. leaving the carousel near Screamin' within an hour of park opening;
    d. walking through the recreation area behind GRR.

    2. at DL --
    a. getting off of Pooh just after opening (these folks had to have made it the first ride of the day);
    b. leaving Buzz Lightyear through the right-side exit, not the store exit (don't remember time of day);
    c. going through the tunnels from the entrance to Main Street (time of day = ?).

    Paradise Pier is a good place to try and find the Dream Squad. We spotted them at the exit to Maliboomer at about 11 and rode. They were handing passes out for an hour or so, considering that Maliboomer was running one tower and had, like, no line.

    I also go regularly and thought I was never going to win anything, then the weekend before Gumball Rally I won ears by ROA and a few weeks later won Dream Fastpasses on the bridge next to BTMRR. Both were early in the day.

    It isn't easy, I went many, many times never even seeing the Dream Squad, but it is possible!

    Good Luck!

    I've won 4 Dream Fastpasses in the following locations:

    1. Exiting BTMRR
    2. On the Bridge near the Wishing Well
    3. By the bathrooms near Zocalo
    4. By the petrified tree near Mark Twain/Columbia

    I won these always in the morning within the first hour or 2 of opening.

    Re: how do you get the year of a million dreams fastpass?

    Myself and two friends won them last weekend on sat. It was at 10:45 at the fountain next to Haunted Mansion. They are pretty covert, if we hadnt of been told by another guy who won, we may not have noticed them giving them out. We actually didnt use ours since by 12:00 noon, we had already ridden all the Fastpass rides.

    One question. Someone mentioned that these no longer expire, yet our had dates printed on them, and specifically said they had to be used that day.

    Last time I saw them giving them out at the exit of matterhorn, so I rode the ride to try to get one, but when I got out of the ride they were gone. I've also seen them at Main Street by the flag post giving them out to people sitting in the benches. I've seen them walking by GRR, and by the bridge of Pacific Wharf. I've never personally won one, but I've seen them more often so I hope I'll be getting one in the next couple of months.

    I saw some dream squad at the exit of ToT they where handing out dream fast passes like around 12:00. And We almost won the dream suite. I was at Space Mountain And everyone in my family spotted the dream squad, right before you enter the building itself the dream squad came the Family of 4, in front of us and gave them the suite, and i got a hat. I Was OMG ARE YOU KIDDING ME OMG.

    The early bird gets the worm. Always got mine before 11am. Twice coming off Pooh and once while entering Frontierland (coming from Fantasyland).

    We got ours at the bridge beside King Triton's water feature near Tomorrow Land They were sort of hidden. It was around 10 in the morning.
    What is this about them never expiring? Is that true.
    We also that day got a magical moment at the Hungry Bear. They seated us by the water with full table service. That was fun. The guy next to us wondered how he could sign up for that. Was it through Disney Dining? No, just be at the right place at the right time.

    I got mine in DCA exiting the maliboomer in the morning. It really seems that DCA in the morning is a safe bet.

    Both times that I got my Dream Fastpasses were in the morning and it doesn't matter whether or not it's a popular ride or not, I got one exiting Pirates and on exiting BTMRR. If you're really desperate for them you could buy a set on ebay :P
