    I kind of hope they replace fast pass with virtual queues for all rides and eliminate lines altogether

  3. Initially it was fine with no FP, but NOW, it’s a different story. These lines are insane most days for the popular rides Being able to book 3 FP’s a day ( plus more ), is a perk shared by ALL. Disney stated there was no need bcuz rides were walk ons, which is untrue. Some rides are at certain times of the day, but when “It’s a small world” is a 50 minute wait….u know it’s going to be a longgg day!! BRING IT BACK.

      Do not go to WDW, if fast-passes are no longer available, or you will spend at least half your park time waiting in line.

        Good bob you stay away… bc i never waited prior to fp a whole day for something! I actually saw more wo the stupid fp worry! the regular line never moves now and half the rides at wdw never needed it to begin w now they have it to create lines all it does is create lines and problems!

    Nope, please keep the fast pass system! Everyone who enters the parks can have up to three rides their choosing if they plan their vacations out. Crowds pre covid were crazy so the relief of having the fastpass up to 3 rides was awesome!

    Without Fast Pass and parkhopper, older people and disabled, many of whom are Annual Passholders and longtime supporters, will not find it worthwhile to come. Hope we will not be overlooked.

    FP WORKED ONLY IN PAPER FORM! I could get it when i wanted it not i choose 3 i am done! I want to stay in the park thanks! Beyond it screws up das though disney changing the pass on folks didnt help. That and not every single thing needs FP … fast pass means shorter wait now its,sometimes longer than the regular queue! Thats not a,FP!

    I was a annual pass holder canceled in August. I can’t tell you how many times I tried to get a fast passes and couldn’t. Then I get to the park and waiting on a line speaking with out of town guests just to be told They had no problem getting them. Get rid of fast pass.

    Bring back the FP system. The FP system allows visitors the option to either take what they can get and have a relatively speedy day (Been there, done that) or they can spend half the day in 50+ minute lines.

    ONE CHANGE THOUGH…Save the last 2 or 3 hours of a parks FP’s for day of release to those in park at that last 3 to 4 hour window before the park closes. It would give the visitors that one last chance for a FP to the most popular ride. AP holders would have shots at getting FP’s for that popular ride. AND Disney would like it as it would keep visitors in the park longer. Everybody wins.

      We visited WDW in Oct 2020 and Feb 2021 and there were no FP for the rides. The lines were super long (due to Covid-spacing) but guess what: They. Moved! Continuously! You didn’t shuffle forward a couple feet and then wait and wait and wait while a whole slew of FP people passed by before you could shuffle forward a few more feet again. I can remember going to WDW before FP were a thing years ago and, sure, lines were long, but they moved along at a continous pace. Even tho we do use the FP system when it’s available, I myself would like to see FP eliminated or, maybe, to one FP per day.

    I say get rid of fast passes. Imagine it being your first time at Disney world. You paid thousands of dollars to stay on property to go to the parks. You hear about this fast pass system and you log on and try to get one. Only to find out that they’ve all been booked. You get to Disney and you spend hours in lines. Because you didn’t understand how the system works. You paid just as much as every other guest but yet these guests are entitled to cut you in line. All because they understood how to game the system. Most people going to Disney world get to go once. The people that are taking advantage of the fast passes are people who go all the time. It’s an entitlement system and needs to go. Said by someone who’s entitled enough to go every year twice a year.

      Easy solution Brian, work with a reputable travel agent and your scenario won’t happen. You pay the same as booking direct (Disney doesn’t discount, agencies pay the same) and a good agent will educate and assist. (FP’s, dining res, agendas to make the best use of your time in the parks, etc.). In today’s internet world people may assume they get a better price but do a comparison. A “quality” agent (you need one that is a Disney expert) makes the trip a lot easier and a lot less stress. We’ve used one for years, it works.

      This falls under my “survival of the fittest” mentality. Leading up to my first trip, I conducted countless hours of research to make sure that I had dotted all of my i’s and crossed all of my t’s. Much planning goes into a Disney trip and anyone should know that. With all of the information readily available at anyone’s fingertips, there are no excuses. And just like the other poster said, a good travel agent will inform newbies. “Ignorance is not an excuse”.

    Fast passes were what made the lines so unbearably long. Without having to stop the regular line ALL the time, they would move fluidly. Bye bye Fast Pass, please don’t come back!

    Obviously, once the whole COVID threat is resolved, the parks can resume normal operations. However, WDW should seriously consider applying their advance reservations policy, for that allows them to CONTROL ATTENDANCE SIZE to the extent that FP simply won’t be needed!

    The DVC and AP are the ones that pay for the park with upfront cash. These people should have first crack at fastpasses over the local person that comes once a year. I was in a Disney park that had 2 hours of time after normal park hours for hotel guests. After the locals left, the wait time dropped from 1.5 Hrs. to 15 Min. Without FP, I would not bother to go to WDW. AS far as attendance control, when covid is gone; Disney will let as many people into the park as they legally can.

    PLEASE DO NOT!!!! GET RID OF FP!!! I am 61 and having the FP is GREAT. It always us older people to have a wonderful experience without having to stand so long in lines.

  14. Goodness – the fast pass exist as visible recognition of the fact that you can’t spend money while you are standing in line – it isn’t going to go away

  15. Get rid of FP in their most recent form. Hotel guests could reserve times 6 months in advance of their use date. Annual passholders were allowed a 3 month advance time. at which point most times were gone. Pass holders do support WDW.
