WDW Opinion Ep. 9 – FastPass+ Tips and Tricks

In 1999 Disney released a new technology that revolutionized the theme park going experience. The virtual queuing system known as FastPass, pegged the simple question “what if you could reserve your ride time?” What came of that question was a tool that has now been implemented in almost every major theme park theme park in some form or another.

But in 2013 the FastPass system Disney park fans had come to know and love would be changed forever. With the advent of My Magic Plus and My Disney Experience, Disney began to take a technology first approach to much of the daily routines the average theme park guest would encounter. This meant giving guests the ability to book FastPass months in advance and change, edit and adjust reservations on the fly from the convenience of their smartphone. Love it or hate it FastPass+ is here to stay. Rather than complain you should embrace this incredible tool and use it to its full potential.

In this segment Hank and I will be giving you tips, tricks and tactics you can use to get the most out of FastPass+. By the end of this episode you’ll be a pro when it comes to reserving rides and you’ll be leaving other guests in the dust when it comes to experience the attractions you want to.

Plus we also talk about Pandora the World of Avatar making Time Magazine’s list of Greatest Places for 2018, a new giraffe makes its way onto the savannah at Disney Animal Kingdom Park and we share our Disney legend of the month. All that and more on this episode of WDW Opinion.
