    Don't count on it. Just because it's patented doesn't mean it's going to happen.

      Yes, changes to the FP system might be underway as Kevin Yee has mentioned in previous articles but for what you mention here Parisi I have to go back to your sources. While they might be true, the credibility of authors does come into play, so I would like to put this one in the rumor pile.

        I do not believe that they will ever prioritize the higher spenders (i.e. Grand Floridian guests over Pop Century guests) in the Fast Pass system.

        I think it's plenty OK for them to give perks to ALL their resort guests, but I think it would be dangerous to set up a class system within the Disney World Resort.

          If Jim Hill thinks that it's going to happen the way Jim described it, he's a complete fool. The very idea of flashing a cell phone to a CM and using it as a Fastpass is utterly ridiculous. This system will work differently then described in the Jim Hill article, as well as in the patent.

                  So I am confused, does this mean that fast pass is only going to be available to Disney resort guests? I hope not. We never stay on Disney property, its much cheaper for us to stay at Hilton Grand Vacation clubs. And if we can't get fast pass then, my family will most definetly opt for Universal instead.

                    LOL Jim Hilll actually wrote an article about one question back in the day on Laughing Place.com. ) Basically I asked what happened to the Roger Rabbit project for the Disney-MGM Studios and he wrote about it and said that he was saving it for his book on never made Disney atrraction but decide to post it because I asked. Back then, I was Abu233 on the laughing place. Good time, Good time. Speaking of Jim, What ever happen to Fab, his exwife and lover of all things Tony Baxer?

                        all this would do is cause mayhem...can you imagine how people would react to being treated as "lower class" visitors! i would imagine some people may act out seeing a GF guest get on a ride and they having to wait who knows how long! not a good idea !!!!!

                          The only improvement to the FAST PASS system that I want to see is the COMPLETE ELIMINATION of it.

                            I've never used the fastpass system...is it really THAT bad?

                            Also, this story was in the front page of the Orlando Sentinel today so for those of you who wished that it wasnt true...well...sorry

                              Speaing as someone who used to LOVE Fastpass. If you work the Fastpass system, really work the system, it cuts your wait time. But it changes visiting the parks into a logistics exercize. If its 3:35 PM, then I must be at Splash Mountain.

                              Fastpass increases the wait time of the standby lines. People will argue this, but here are some ways to look at it.

                              1) If you get a FP for Soarin' and then go wait in the Test Track Standby line, you have make the TT Standby line longer. We can all agree on that I hope. Now because you are "reserving" spot in the Soarin' line, you have also made that line longer at the same time you are making the Test Track line longer

                              2) Or lets look at it this way. Disregarding breakdowns ets TT and Soarin and process a total of X number of people per hour. FP does not change that. IF somebodys average wait time (the FP holder) has gone down, then somone elses has gone up.

                              I don't hate it (yet) but because my method of going to parks has changed (I no longer want to schedule the crap out of my vacation) it no longer suits my needs. It used to, but now it does not.
