    R.I.P. Paper Fastpass

    Just heard that the Magic Kingdom has officially removed all paper fastpasses as of today. It is the beginning of a new era. Comments? Opinions?

    According to this website Fastpasses are no more at Magic Kingdom. It is only the FAstPass + now.New tests at Disney World signal the end of paper FastPasses and FastPass machines - Orlando Attractions Magazine

    That article only mentions the test at AK, which had been mentioned previously. It doesn't say anything yet about when it would be expanded to the other 3 parks.

    So for awhile it seems like you will only be able to Fastpass + or whatever while staying on Property...

    who knows how long that will last, maybe they are going to try and bring the whole thing to where it's a privalege you get for staying at a Disney Hotel and that's going to be their way of charging for it instead of blatantly saying it's X amount of dollars like Universal and 6 Flags.
    The test of success is not what you do when you are on top. Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.

    ^ I must admit that it would be logical on Disney's part to do it like that. Give the free FPs to the hotel guests and make non hotel guests a fee

    Re: R.I.P. Paper Fastpass

    As a first timer who is going to be staying on the disney property, do I have to use FP+ ahead of time for Magic Kingdom? I'm so confused...

    14th was the first day for MK. AK was done before christmas. The other parks are just a matter of time. Permits have already been filed for FP machine removals, etc. I would expect the other parks to happen by Feb if the MK transition goes smoothly.

    What does this do to the lanyards and pins and pin trading?

    I don't see any connection at all. How do you see a relation?

    I'm sure pin lanyards will still sell.

    Vinylmation is the new pin trading craze.

    The Magic Bands, can be bought in special editions if you want to upgrade from the plane one you get. And there are accessories, so that is a new collectable in itself.
