    Confused!

    Some people have bought fast passes via for example ebay, but they say they are for life.

    How does it work. If you put your fast pass into the entrance to the ride would you not just lose them, therefore only able to use them once?

    The easiest way to describe it is that it's like having another park ticket that won't get you in the park.

    You put the ticket in the fast pass machine and you get a fastpass ticket. These fastpasses are bound to the same rules as normal fastpasses (1 every 2 hours or after the first one expires) etc.

    Once you put the ticket in the machine it comes back out. The fastpass ticket is a seperate ticket that is printed out of the same machine with the times that you must go back for your ride.

    A quick google suggest some doubt as to the bona fides of such "lifetime" passes and notes a significant likelihood of fakery. Anyone actually ever tried using them?

    Okay, I was tempted to buy some. But the googling seems to flag up suggestions that (a) they're dated and hence expired or (b) fake. Presumably you've not had any problems and jsut pop 'em in the machines in order to solicit a "normal" fastpass which is then handed over to a CM?

    They're not, for example, like VIP Fastpasses which you just wave at the CM?

    Yes as Ive say they've been fine. And yes you put them in the FP machine to get a FP just like you do with your park ticket/AP
