Beginning soon, an all-new kiosk will allow guests to select their FastPasses for the Space Mountain, Star Tours, and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters attractions in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park. The new kiosk’s premiere is part of a pilot program similar to Walt Disney World’s digital method of reserving ride reservations.
According to OC Register, the new touch screen FastPass kiosk will be located at the front of Tomorrowland Theater and after its premiere in the park–guests will no longer receive paper FastPass reminders to take with them to remind them of their scheduled ride times. Instead, your FastPasses for these three attractions will only be listed on the mobile app.
For those wondering, guests will still only be able to obtain one FastPass at a time at the Tomorrowland kiosk, similar to the current attraction reservations system.
For guests who do not have access to or choose to not use the Disneyland app, they will have the option to take a photo of the Tomorrowland FastPass kiosk touch screen with their phone to retain proof of their return time to the three attractions.
Currently, guests to Disneyland are able utilize the Disneyland mobile app when booking FastPasses through the MaxPass system, which allows guests to schedule ride times throughout both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure for an additional $15 per person, per day visit.
At this time, it is not known if Disneyland will expand its usage of FastPass kiosks beyond Tomorrowland to other areas around the resort’s two theme parks. However, if Disney sees success with this new pilot program, Disneyland guests may be forever kissing paper FastPasses reminders goodbye in the near future.
If the system were to be utilized with other attractions, we’d assume it’d be with high-traffic rides, including Thunder Mountain, Toy Story Mania, Pirates of the Caribbean, and both Millennium Falcon Smuggler’s Run and the upcoming Rise of the Resistance at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
As a tip, when visiting Disneyland, be sure to link your park ticket to the Disneyland mobile app so you can see all of your FastPasses together in one place on your phone. Even if you don’t have MaxPass, you’ll still be able to keep track of your scheduled ride times throughout the day.
