    Again, people have become so dependent on Fps that they don't see that often times you don't really save a lot of time....

    Re: Disney Fighting 'FastPass' Sales

    Using a FastPass the same day it was issued, but after the recommended time-window of return is not misuse. I never thought to even try this on my own. Only after taking a behind the scenes tour at Animal Kingdom, where our guide strongly suggested we grab them as we passed by and assured us they'd be good through closing despite the printed times, have I adopted this technique. I've never been denied a tardy, same-day return even when hours and hours have passed.

    This makes for a great day. If the lines are reasonable I *want* to stand in them. Some lines are as much a part of a ride as a ride itself. (There are many exceptions to this statement, of course.) So I spend my day waiting in lines and collecting FastPasses, then have a marvelous wait-free evening re-riding virtually everything in a very short time.

    Work the system, baby!

    I would never try and buy a FastPass or re-use one from a previous day...

    Boo to you who do!

    I can't believe people would spend THAT much on fastpasses. CRAZY!

    I am also a little ticked about the VIP fast pass....way to weed out the "normal" people.

    Are you kidding me with that statement? Really? Honestly? Wow.

    If they have a problem with old fastpasses, all they have to do is color code them and mix up the days of the color.

    Why introduce technology for something the CM can do easily and quickly? All they need to do is enforce return times and dates.

    Tickets without dates? They are obviously invalid or special case tickets. This article doesn't say the tickets are being counterfeited...

    This I actually don't have a problem with. Having seen some celeb's go to the parks, and seeing how they get mobbed when they are just trying to spend a day with their family is justification enough IMO.

    I mean, I realize they are in the spotlight, and a certain amount of hassle when they are out in public is to be expected, but when they are with their kids ... I think people should just leave them alone and let them enjoy a day.

    I mean, I saw Neil Peart (drummer for Rush) at DCA one day. I know he's a private guy from reading his books, etc ... nobody else would have probably recognized him, so he wasn't with a "plaid" or anything, but I didn't bug him. Let people have a life.

    That makes a lot more sense than barcodes.

    If Disneyland removes fastpass less people will go.

    Simple solution: ENFORCE THE FREAKING DATE!

    There's a reason the Disneyland ones now have the year printed on them. Just train the attraction CMs to look at the time and the date. How hard is that? It would add about 5 nanoseconds to the time it takes to check a FP ticket.

    It's amazing to me that while Disney is so afraid of enforcing its own rules, it's apparently completely blind to the fact that failure to enforce rules may solve the problem of dealing with an unhappy guest, but it creates a far larger problem in things like these Ebay auctions. Ebay's passing the buck doesn't help, but they do have a point in that it IS Disney's responsibility to enforce their own rules. Just enforce the date Disney! It's not that hard.
