Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the new My Magic+ currently getting rolled out across much of WDW. I love the idea of planning adr's 180 days out & I'm warming to the idea of booking my fast passes 60 days out. My understanding at the moment is that I can pick 3 fast passes a day & receive a bonus fast pass every so often. I love the idea of being given my time slot to ride rides. I think doing it this way will, to begin with, greatly reduce the fast pass queues right across the parks as there's only so many time slots that can be allocated? This should in theory make the stand by lines longer but also make them move quicker, as less people have fast passes? Now I'd be stupid to think Disney ain't got cold heart $ in mind here & I'm guessing hotel guests, depending on their grade, will receive extra fast passes on a daily basis. The higher the resort in stars, the higher the cost to the guest & therefore the more fast passes issued. I would also imagine that for a price the guest who chooses not to stay on property will have the option to buy extra fast passes. As I write this Disney is currently only issuing 1 fast pass per ride per day, however I'm guessing that if the price is right then guests will be able to buy multiple fast passes for the same rides. Canyou imagine riding the haunted mansion 3 times on the bounce using 3 fast passes on the bounce? Universal has been doing this for years! You can prebook their version of fast pass or buy in the park on day of arrival but you only get 1 ride of each ride in the parkes (excluding some of the biggest rides) We are a family of 4 & for only a few $ more we can book a hotel room on Universal property & receive unlimited fast passes on check in day & check out day! You'd be a fool not to do it! You'd also be a fool to think Disney ain't gonna pull this stunt on us all soon. Give them a few months to bed in the new system & they'll start rolling out tiered pricing on the fast passes, granted you'll get brilliant upgrades to your basic fast pass package if you stay on property but it'll cost an arm & a leg. Trust me & get your $ $$$$$$$$ ready coz you gonna need them.
