Disney Fastpass+ Updated News

This week we have more news on Disney’s Fastpass+ system.  Changes to how you get fastpasses and some updates from the Disney parks on when FastPasses are running out by.
Also we have more news about FastPass+ testing out which attractions and rides you can pre-book.  One idea floating around is ranking Disney attractions, kind of like the old E Tickets.  The idea is that you get to book one “E Ticket” attraction with FastPass+ when you schedule ahead of time and Two other rides and attractions.  These Other rides and attractions would be equivalent to A-D ticket attractions.  There are some stories being posted that testing for this will begin November 1.  As more information comes out on FastPass+ changes and testing we will let you know about them.  I would expect several different tests like this until Disney get the right mix.

Glow with the show at WDW premiered at Fantasmic.
These are a special pair of Disney Mickey Ears you can buy and wear.  They light up in sync to several Walt Disney World and Disneyland shows.  So Wishes at Disney World, World of Color at Disneyland, the Castle show at Disney World and Fantasmic and Disney World.  The Mickey ears are $25.

Jingle Cruise

Yes the Famous Jungle Cruise is turning into the Jingle Cruise at Disney World and Disneyland for the holidays.  We will be riding it in a few days and will report back with an update, but it sounds like a fun idea.

Downtown Disney Valet Parking 

Now – January 1, 2014 there is Valet Parking at Downtown Disney 4PM – 2AM $15.00 plus gratuity.
This might be worth it especially with the construction at Downtown Disney and Holiday shopping.
I believe the drop off spot is over by Cirque like it has been in the past.
Parking garages should be complete in 2015, which will be very nice and help with the parking issues at Downtown Disney.

  1. I think that fast pass plus will cause a similar problem that booking dining had before the 10 Dollar no show penalty was introduced. Guests that are staying for 2 weeks might book fast passes for every day of their holiday, even on days where they have no intention of visiting a park. I think there will be many wasted fastpasses as a result if this.
