I should probably know the answer but the truth is that I do get the Disney parks mixed up - is there only a half hour window on the fastpass tickets at DLRP and did they still let you on the ride if you showed up a little late? At WDW there is an hour window and they are quite lenient about letting you on the ride after your time has passed - as long as you don't try to get on before the time. It's just that I don't think half an hour is very long if you end up delayed on another ride or at a restaurant etc etc

On the whole DLP CM's enforce the time windows on FP's :)

OT - noticed that CM's at WDW were advising guests that any later than 30 minutes from FP window would not be honoured.

Yes it's a 30 minute window, I know they were very strict about not letting anyone on before their time but I'm not sure about what they do if your time has passed, although we were allowed on TOT 5 minutes after our fast pass had run out.

It depends how busy the park is. I've been allowed on a ride 15mins after the window but I've also seen people turned away at 1 min over at Xmas.

We were there at a busy time (Easter) and were allowed onto Buzz about 20minutes past our window. Would not like to bank on it though!

We've ridden a short while after our time once or twice but, from what other people say, on the whole I think they are pretty strict at DLRP. I guess a lot of it depends on the CM and his/her mood. ;)

I think a lot of it would depend on the CM and the circumstances...if you were to casually stroll up to the CM and hand the tickets over they may say no...if it looks like you've just run across the park and need an oxygen tent then I'd imagine they would be far more lienient.

Best advice is to ensure that you are there during your window. Most of the time you'll have at least an hour before your fastpass window even opens so you should be able to plan around it.

... but the WDS windows are only 15mins! (at least, for ToT, so I suppose for the other attractions as well). We showed up 3 mins EARLY and weren't let in there (whereas it was quiet), but at BTM, we missed our (half hour) time window by more than 10 mins, and the CM didn't say anything, just let us in. I must admit he was preoccupied by all these ppl that stood in the FP lane WITHOUT FP tickets, but still. I've seen ppl who were late at ToT, this wasn't a problem either.

I've not been late for a FP window, but DLRP CM's are usually very strict with folk trying to use their FP early, even by a couple of minutes. There is often a huddle of people around the FP entrance to Peter Pan, who have turned up early for their FP timeslot, and don't get past the CM.

Really?! Thats a change of policy then and not one thats being generally spoken about. I'll have to start reading up before my visit to WDW next April as I was sort of banking on saving some morning FP's for the evenings.
