I have witnessed a lot of FastPass bashing in the forums again and it got me thinking, now before I get drawn and quartered for asking this remember I am a management type and as such I have to say that its very easy for us to armchair quarterback the fast pass system, some love it some hate it but lets face facts its there, in place and a good chunk of of Disney's customers have come to depend on it. So the big question is for those of you who seem determined to see its demise: What would you do in place of the current FastPass system?
Before you answer just think about it, FP does add a benefit to its users, it gives them freedom from waiting in line. Parents with small kids will tell you most children just will not wait for an hour or more to ride a ride without driving someone (their parents or other guests) nuts from sheer boredom. The parks are a lot more crowded than they where back in the late 70's and all when I started visiting, without the ticket books the lines grow longer at some rides more so than others, and I for one do not miss waiting in line for two hours for Splash mountain and other E ticket rides.
Fast Pass also benefits Disney since instead of waiting in line the guests are hopefully spending money on food, highly marked up junk in the gift shops or at least waiting in a shorter line and having a better overall Disney experience which in turn means repeat customers. (insert "cha-ching sound here")
So for now assume you are the person in charge, responsible for replacing the FastPass system or keeping it in place: What is YOUR solution that would please both the current FastPass Users and Disney Park Management what would you do?
