Readers weigh in on Disney’s FastPass+

Commenters say new system is disappointing and has “zero appeal”

Not so fast

I spent four days in different Disney parks over the last couple if weeks. As a non-annual pass-holder and not a guest on-site, there are little to no advantages to this new system for me (“The wins and fails of Disney’s new FastPass+,” March 26). I wasn’t able to use the app to view or obtain my FastPasses, so changing any of my selections required a wait in a long line. I didn’t see a reduction in any waits at popular rides. In fact, the standby wait time at Peter Pan was never under 75 minutes the whole time we went and FastPasses were never available, so we missed out on that ride altogether this year - a big disappointment to my 5-year-old!

In all, I’m very disappointed in the new FastPass system. Yes, it benefits annual pass holders and resort guests, but for pay (and) go types like me, there are no benefits. I can see why Disney would want to benefit resort guests - which they already did with extended hours - but I don’t see why they would want to cater to annual pass-holders over pay-and-go given the latter pay a higher price per visit. All Disney staff reiterated to me that this is a ‘work in progress’ so I’ll be interested to see how things change.

I am in the same boat. For ad hoc visitors staying off-site, there is zero appeal to this new system. Throughout the summer trip I have planned, I will be forced into colossal standby queues whether or not I make it to rope drop. And my “reward” for that will be – a 30 minute wait for Muppet Vision? I keep hearing about how the new system is still being tested, and is still subject to change, etc. But something tells me we are not going to see any changes beneficial to the non-annual-pass offsites. Maybe I’ll just skip it. See you at the Wizarding World.
