#News- Fast Pass return times will be enforced starting Monday, February 18. This means that a guest must return within the hour printed on the FP, with the exception of the attraction breaking down during the return time.
Leads will be cracking down big time on CM's for not enforcing them, too! It may not seem that great, but in the end it will help keep wait times down and lines moving like they should be! Truly utilizing FASTPASS (ie. enforcing return times) will be the most efficient way for us to keep wait times at a minimum. - dlmickeymouseCM 2404.5 #44 2-3-13 8:56PMLike(14)Reply
I don't understand why this is an issue. It should've been done this way in the first place. I hope it keeps the lines moving at a more efficient pace. - DisneyFanZoe 1106.9 #128 2-4-13 9:33AMLike(4)Reply
Trust me folks, from a CM that does work a fastpass attraction: Signs will be posted informing guest that the end times will be enforced. There will be exceptions of course. Down times, special circumstances, etc. We want the lines to move as efficiently as possible and the fastpass system has helped with that greatly. No system is perfect but it is one more step to even better systems that are coming. - JungleBum 1013.1 #143 2-4-13 8:03AMLike(3)Reply
Some masked vigilante had already mentioned this, but nice to see it confirmed! - sleepyhead_CM 572.1 #299 2-3-13 8:39PMLike(1)Reply
Thanks for the confirmation BBM...we are so lucky to have amazing CM MWers to keep us updated👏👏👏 - Linzee 793.8 #190 2-3-13 8:53PMLike(1)Reply
I'm glad they're gonna start doing this finally. Definitely not cool to have to wait extra at the end of the day because everyone with fastpass get priority. - TikiJOSEsWingman 332.4 #635 2-3-13 9:03PMLike(1)Reply
What will happen if you're a few minutes late? Tough luck? Is that how strict it's going to be? - ima-pirateswife 684.2 #230 2-3-13 8:59PMLikeReply
What will happen if you don't make it back in time? Thank You for heads up MWers , Admin, CM you so totally rock. Now I will have to put that in phone to remember - crazyblktinko 249.6 #1214 2-3-13 9:01PMLikeReply
Wow, this is a big deal. Thanks for sharing the news. Although it's not always something we wanted to happen, we knew it would sooner or later. - Oinker34 1111.3 #126 2-3-13 9:06PMLikeReply
Aw man, the rule's going into effect the exact day I'm going to Dland next! Oh well. Thanks for the heads up; I definitely will have to make an adjustment for this. - melamo 7.3 #11140 2-3-13 9:06PMLikeReply
I honestly didn't even know that you could come back after your fast pass time until I found out WDW was cracking down on that. Thanks for the post. - treradical 126.1 #2903 2-3-13 9:28PMLikeReply
We always would try to get back on time as we kind of felt like we'd be the first one's they'd try to enforce it with (just kind of felt like it was impending). I guess now it's here, it would really suck to be like a minute or two late and get turned away but where do they draw the line, has always been the tough thing with this. - Mikesaxclar 477.2 #377 2-3-13 9:46PMLikeReply
Thanks for the update. Can't wait to see all the angry people now who have trouble following the rules :-p - tiggertwin 329.5 #649 2-3-13 10:20PMLikeReply
Would it be possible to talk about the new CEV procedure too for those that are disabled? We ran into some issues this trip with my brother who was in a motorized cart...its now basically a hand written "fast pass" type system too? This wasnt pushed during our new years visit. - aphboomwha 121.9 #2984 2-3-13 10:33PMLikeReply
Thank you for the update regarding this. Personally I think this is a great as it will allow the FastPass system to truly work the way it is supposed to. - Bibba 333.3 #630 2-3-13 10:53PMLikeReply
That's a good thing. It will ensure the Fast Pass system truly works as intended. - Experiment818 1601.2 #78 2-3-13 11:02PMLikeReply
What happens if the ride is down when you go to use your FP... - RobinandSteve 232.6 #1423 2-4-13 7:18AMLikeReply
Thanks for the update. Sad to hear it's really happening, but glad we have time to get adjusted. I know it was always a privilege and really loved taking advantage, but now I will just employ a new strategy. - Sarafina 425.8 #438 2-4-13 9:33AMLikeReply
I noticed CM's starting it over the weekend. Go CM's! Big pat on the back to you all! - MeridasHair 346.5 #593 2-18-13 2:45PMLikeReply
how does this affect guests with gac's with alt entrance(i.e. we can use handicap entrance or fastpass)? We've been able to use the fastpass lines of any attractions that had them as of superbowl sunday. They had signs up saying they would be enforcing return times, but I just renewed our gac, and the CM who renewed it didn't say anything about any changes, nor did any other CM we encountered that day. I just want our next trip to be as smooth as our previous trips...the more I know ahead of time, the better I can plan our trip. Has anyone had any experience with this in the last couple days? - Mandathewitch 355.6 #564 2-21-13 2:11PMLikeReply
