End of Fast Pass...

Chip+co is reporting MAJOR fp changes coming at the end on this month....


Quote:
The short and skinny is all Fast Passes will be eliminated for everyone except resort guests with Key to the World Cards or linked Magic Band. If you are staying on property you will be limited to 3 Fast Passes per day at only one park. If you are a local no Fast Passes for you unless you are staying the night. So basically no room, no Fast Pass!
is this accurate/to be trusted?

I'm not buying it.

Doesn't sound like a trusted CM or higher up. It's already been said this will be linked to tickets, not resort stays.

Wow if true forcing me to stay on resort for three fast passes a day? Ok then I won't stay on the resort...for three measly fast passes a day. Thanks Dis as staying off site just got easier with this move.

I agree with the above response. If Disney did this...most people would drop their Annual passes (locals for sure) know I would.

My understanding was with the new Magic Bands that let you pre-book your Fastpass return times was limited to resort guests. But regular FP was still going to be available to everyone.

I hope that the 3 a day part is completely, and utterly false. Especially since that would make it moot and pointless to get Park Hopper. If it's true, then it's completely weaksauce.

Not really thinking this is going to happen. Disney has already said they will continue to allow all guests to use MyMagic and Fastpass +

How is this going to work for Annual Passholders? So far it sounds and looks like something to give Disney hotel guests a leg up on the rest of humanity. I would love to be able to arrange my day at any one of the parks. Everyone should be equal when it comes to being in the parks!!!!
Tom Staggs on January 7th, 2013 at 2:15 pm

Thank you for the comment, Dan. I see there are several questions concerning Annual Passholders. Our Annual Passholders are very important to us and we’re taking extra care to provide access to all the features and benefits of MyMagic+. Stay tuned as we are finalizing our timeline and we’ll keep you posted.

Looking for the other entries in this same official blog where Disney says they will include everyone.

This can't be possible. They haven't rolled out RFID to all the resorts yet, have they?

What about those of us that stay off site? How is this going to work? We will have paper tickets that will need to be converted? What will they be converted too? A plastic card with RFID in it, or a wristband? Or will we still use the old FP system? Very confusing, lots of questions…but no answers here yet?
Thomas Smith on January 7th, 2013 at 6:07 pm

Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels, and Annual Passholders will receive a band, as well as those guests who purchase a photography package. All other guests will receive a ticket with features of touch to enter the park, touch to redeem FastPass+ and touch to pay. These guests can participate in My Disney Experience and purchase a MagicBand if they wish.
Found it. So, back in January the Disney official line was that Fastpass+ would be available to all guests. The only difference I see is that resort guests will get a Magic Band and others can purchase them if desired. The tickets for guests staying offsite will have all the features of the RFID system.

I wonder if she got confused and what she actually means is that the paper kiosks will be gone by the end of September and they'll go solely to touch screen.

If I were Disney... I would not want to do anything to shoot myself in the foot when catering to the frequent annual passholder visitors

Until we hear this from Disney, or a more reliable Disney source, seems hard to believe, particularly since (as PPs note) it is contrary to things Disney has released on MDE and FP+

But, as many will recall, there were similar arguments about EMH and locals or offsite guests. Yet EMH is still only for on-property (plus S/D and Hilton) right?

I will put this in the utter nonsense category.

Sorry to say but Disney is all about money why would they do something like this to shortchange themselves.

You can put this rumor in with a grain of salt.

FP+, EMH, transport, these are all on-site benefits.
If I can get FP+ and FP with on-site, I'm perfectly happy.
If the non-onsite people can get FP but not FP+, I'm perfectly happy.

Honestly, if the non-onsite people can get FP and FP+ but we get to keep the original EMH (3 hours, etc) I'd be perfectly happy.
