If you found them in the ground, would you pick them up and throw them away so that no one else would use them?

Or how about you have already pulled your TSMM FP for the day and a CM offered you some more. Would you turn those down also.

It doesn't really matter since this is an issue that is 100% resolved with FP+/MM+. If you know that you won't use a FP, you will be able to simply give it back. You won't be able to give it to another guest directly because it will be tied to your magic band.

Yes, you pay for a ticket but when you get a FP, there are terms and conditions of that FP. They are not intended to be sold or transferred to another person.

And the intended purpose of that FP that you pulled was for you to fill that seat at a certain time.

Intent or not, you acted as a de facto secondary distributor of FPs and Disney has rules against that no matter how you try to justify yourself in breaking them.

And according to the logic on this thread, if that family in melt down mode would have worked harder or put in more effort and planning in their day then they wouldnt be in such a sad state and should not be rewarded because they didnt put the work and effort into their day that others did.

And nothing is lost if you throw a FP away but others in that line do benefit from it.

And I'm totally cool with that.

I can't help it ...Why should they benefit from my actions but not someone else?

Please...PLEASE don't answer. Seriously. As Dadddio pointed out, it's all a pointless discussion as the new MM+ system will not allow any gifting of FP. Let's just let the idea die a peaceful death.

A lot of people are saying that Fast passes are non-transferable. Could someone please post a picture of where, exactly, on the Fastpass that it says it's non-transferable? I actually do have a photo of the front of one on my phone and it's not there, so it must be on the back someplace. Although I swear I read the back of my Fastpass and did not see that verbiage.

At any rate, one morning I was at MK and pulled a FP for Space Mountain. Sometimes I have tummy trouble, particularly when traveling and eating foods I'm not accustomed to for several days straight. Anyway, when the time came for me to use my Fastpass, my tummy just wasn't going to handle it. I gave the FPs away because, like I said, I must have missed the verbiage where it says on the back that you can't give them away.

I also don't see how anyone can claim "abuse" of FPs when they were pulled legitimately. Different people have different strategies on how they tour. The best time to tour is at rope drop. That's when the park is least crowded. If you elect not to go at rope drop, you're either going to end up in long lines or with FPs that have returns several hours out. It comes down to what is a priority for you and your family, and only you can determine that. It doesn't make someone else's method of touring "wrong" just because it isn't what you want to do.

EDIT: OK fine, I Googled it and found it. Like I said...I wasn't feeling well at the time so I wasn't paying that close attention. And really, how many people ACTUALLY read FPs?? Most people grab them, stick them in a pocket, and move on. It doesn't make "rule breaking" right, but I am betting that there are a lot of people (like me) that have unknowingly broke the rules. Ultimately...giving away a non-transferable FP is probably not the worst thing I've ever done.

It is on the back. And I count really only one--it just seems like twenty.

My wie and I typically rode TSMM between five and seven times per day, all but the first being with FPs.

And besides, they all have the SAME opportunity to be at the park at rope drop just like my family. How am I taking something away from them if they CHOOSE to not do the same. I did not lock them in their room. In fact, I am the first to tell them they should really be at the park at rope drop to be able to do all they want to do with short waits. I ALWAYS encourage everyone to do the same as me!! If they do, then there would be no worry about be getting an extra FP for that ride again because before I am able to get, they will get it. But I also don't think I should sit on my hands or stand in a 2 hour line when there are FPs available so that you can have a swim in your pool before coming to park and still get a FP.
It isn't about opportunity, or effort, or anything like that. It's about maximizing profits by making the most people happy.

Thanks guys...I amended my post.

I can still think of about a zillion things I'd call someone out on before I'd call them out on the transferability of a FP. If that were at the top of my worry list, my, I'd have a pretty great life.

Of those things, the only rule that you have broken is giving away FPs.

WOW

Guess when I'm on vacation I just don't feel that superior to everyone around me just because I'm a Disney nut and love to plan and got lots of help from Diser's gracious enough to share their time .Robo was sooo helpful our first trip...I chose to pass that kindness on. Enough said.


ROBO I'M with you! HELP !

It would reduce the number of people in the FP line for that time period by one. Therefore, it would make the SB line 'faster' by one person.

You are right.

I only bring it up when people claim there was never any FP abuse or they never broke any FP rules as was mentioned earlier in this thread.
