Big changes coming to FASTPASS in March

Feb 06, 2012 in "FASTPASS"

Some big changes are expected to be implemented at all FASTPASS attractions next month.  Starting March 7 2012, it is expected that the FASTPASS return windows will now be actively enforced, with a 5 minute early arrival and 15 minute late arrival to be allowed.  Anyone arriving outside of those times will not be allowed entry to the attraction.  The new validity windows will be required for the future roll-out of more advanced NextGen FASTPASS systems, which will require much tighter control of FASTPASS entry than what the current system offers.

The current FASTPASS system does not allow early arrivial times, but does allow late arrivals up to the end of the day.  Many guests make use of the late arrival tolerance with the current system, so the new enforcement will be a significant impact to those guest's park touring plans.
