Former FastPass kiosks uncovered in Tomorrowland and Adventureland
Posted: Tuesday July 20, 2021 11:38am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The original FastPass+ kiosks that are dotted around the Magic Kingdom continue to be uncovered, further fueling speculation that Disney may be preparing its next generation of ride reservation system for Walt Disney World.

Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen kiosks uncovered on both sides of Tomorrowland, near Buzz Lightyear and the former Alien Encounter area.

In Adventureland, the kiosks outside of the Jungle Cruise are also now uncovered.

None of the kiosks are powered up during guest hours, but this doesn't mean that testing has not occurred out of hours. Disney's mobile Genie app is likely to be the primary method for guests making ride reservations. Still, as with FastPass+, some guests will require a physical in-park method of obtaining reservations - which these kiosks may well serve.

Learn more about Disney's possible plans for the successor to FastPass+.

I can see scenarios where "standby" closes once they reach capacity on some combination of standby/FP/FP+/Lightning/etc.

You heard it here first - Disney Magic Tickets!!! For a price, you can get what will be considered “A through E” tickets. Each one will… oh wait… 😂

That's fine. And will be an option. If I intend to wait many hours on headliners when I'm there on a busy week. I've accepted I'll need to pay more. But allow it so that I can buy multiple attractions at once.

I hate all these what if’s that are swimming around my head but, will you still be able to join a standby queue a few minutes before park closing? Or will you need a standby pass for that time frame that you got in the genie app several hours prior?

DLP's DPA is pay per ride. There are only two per ride or buy a package of rides. What else can there possibly be?? I've seen responses above mentioning packages might not be am option.

Chapek feels that any time spent standing in line is less time shopping. Now, he wants us standing around so we can be shopping for lines.
