Testing The New Fastpass

A cast member friend invited us to come along with them as they tested the new fast pass system this week and it was an awesome experience.

When we arrived at the Magic Kingdom we were handed the new fastpass cards (as seen below), which already had a schedule set up for us. We first proceeded to the Jungle Cruise were we were greeted by a guest relations representative who helped us use the touch screen kiosk to view and edit our reservations for the rest of the day. The system worked flawlessly, and at every attraction a cast member eagerly greeted us with questions about our experience.

The system is not too different from the traditional fastpass systems so don’t expect any over the top changes. The convenience of this new system is that you will be able to edit your reservations via a mobile app or through the various touch screen kiosks located throughout the park. Overall, we did not encounter any major issues. Ariel’s Undersea Adventure was broken down during our fastpass window, but the system automatically bumped us to later time period. Pretty nifty!

We reported previously that a fastpass wristband is being developed. No new word on this yet, but hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to test the band out as well.

I was told if your staying in an onsite Disney owned resort you will be given the option of the new fastpass when you check in. Let us know your thoughts.
