We're at the Tokyo Disney Resort for the first time this week and loving every minute of it! Before the trip, I'd read, from multiple sources, that the cast members here would accept Fast Passes until close. However, we found that that THEY ARE (albeit in a very polite way)! When we arrived an hour after our return time to STAR TOURS, we were (politely) asked if we were delayed on another attraction. We were. (If stuffing our faces with Honey Popcorn counts.) They called someone who called someone else who explained (politely) that they'd let us in but please be mindful of the time.
The next day, we were late (we truly thought the return time was later) at TOWER OF TERROR and were (politely) declined. We didn't fuss, as we'd already ridden it earlier.
So, is this rule for the newer or most popular attractions?
