    Re: Should Toy Story Mania get Fastpasses?

    The last ride to get FP is Buzz. Nothing that opened after that did. We shall see if anything else ever will.

      Im hoping ariel does... but I doubt it. Buzz doesn't really even need it... the longest I have ever seen it was 30 minutes. All the others were 10-25. Nemo is crazy too.

      Anyways... yeah I am hoping TSMM does but who knows....

        A common misconception is that FP makes standby lines shorter. It does not; it makes them longer. Indy before FastPass had MUCH shorter standby times than Indy now.

        FastPass, to work as intended, needs to be used by people who KNOW how to use it. If that were true, then indeed FastPass is a good idea.

        Unfortunately, 95% of people don't. That's why FastPass is not a good idea.

            NO.

            I've never liked how the system makes stand-by lines significantly longer.

            I'm sure there are those who are willing to run up to rides early - commando style .. in a race to get a fastpass.

            But not everyone wants to turn their trip to the DLR into The Great Fastpass Retrieval Race.

            I haven't ridden Splash Mountain in a long time .. because by the time I get to the DLR .. fastpasses are gone, and I'm not in the mood to stand in a 90-120 minute stand-by queue. Same problem with Space Mountain. If you are not there first thing in the morning ... you're looking at long stand-by lines for the rest of the day.

If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

              I agree. I would really like to ride Splash or Space... but Fastpasses are always gone, and the standby time is terrible.

              It should be fair for everyone... one line. No FastPass.

                I voted NO.

                If I want my TSMM fix, I'll wait 30-40 minutes. It's not like there's anything around it I like to ride so I'd have to make a long trek for a Fastpass just to make the trek again later. I'm patient to wait for a good ride, bumping it up over an hour to add the FPes would be a bad idea IMO.

                  Re: Should Toy Story Midway Mania get Fastpasses?

                  I vote no for Toy Story Midway Mania.

                  As for Toy Story Mania? Never heard of it. There is no attraction called by that name.

                  Single Rider line gets you on the ride in less time than it takes to walk from the front of the attraction to the loading station (in the general pathways, not the queue, of course).

                  Splash hasn't run out of FastPasses in a long time. I don't remember the last time that I saw them all gone. They're always still available until sundown, and sometimes after then. Even on hot days, they don't go that quickly. And I go every month, on Saturdays, several times a month, all year long.

                    In Hollywood Studios they do appear to advertise it as Toy Story Mania rather than the added Midway.

                    TSM gets upwards of 60 minute lines constantly. DCA gets 20 minutes....

                      As of D23 Convention, Radiator Springs Racers will be getting FP and it will be the only new attraction to have it. Of course plans can change, but that was the plan according to WDI in September.

                        For those of you who don't know... Fast past makes lines longer, not the other way around. Logically, people get a FP, then go wait in line else where thus making all lines longer.

                        Let's take pirates: 0 min wait @ 8:15 PM with out past pass... anyone remember what happened when they added it? 20 min wait! why in the hell would we go from never having a line to always having one?

                        The only time I ever saw FP shorten a line was when Space was the only attraction with it. The line got shorter, but thats because people didn't want to wait in Standby when they could just get a fast past. Now with lots of attractions with FP, the lines went right back up again.


                        by the way... I think FP works in WDW. Mostly because guests there tend to not use it as much. My theory on that is they get less "locals" that know there way around the system.

                          Before the ride even opened, everyone on here was trying to estimate when lines for TSMM would drop from an hour plus to 10 - 20 minutes. So far, that hasn't happened and it's been open for a year and a halfish. Oh, and with all the construction that's going on in DCA at the moment and everything that will be open in 2011/2012, expect longer lines all together.

                            Well, WDI tends to hate FastPass. TSM wasn't designed for it. WDW Management made WDI install it out there, along with singles as well. Well, FP didn't work well in Florida because the queue was always backing up into the hybrid singles/fastpass queue, so WDW Management got rid of the singles line. Yeah, that makes sense.

                            Trust me, you don't want FastPass on TSM in California.

                            Radiator Springs, on the other hand, NEEDS FastPass.

                            And for people saying that FastPass works better in Florida, it doesn't. It's just that the Guests don't complain as much there because there's a higher percentage of non-locals.

                              Like wait in another line.

                                I don't quite understand how Fastpass makes stand-by lines longer. I know the lines have gotten longer after Fastpass was added on them, but why is that? Is it because the Cast Members switch between the lines?

                                  I think its because your techincally " waiting " in line Disney Princess which adds to the time.

                                  Yeah bexington. I get a fastpass and go wait in another line or my dad gets a place in a long line we go do a ride get a fastpass and go with him.

                                    Oh, okay, I see how it can be a problem if it's not used correctly or on the right ride. I don't really think it'd work on Toy Story Midway Mania then, because the queue is nice right now because it's always moving. I also don't know how they could fit it in. I don't think the former single rider line will work, that area will become too crowded, and the machines will be hard to squish in somewhere.

                                      After seeing what Fast Pass did to Indy and Pirates I don't know how people could want them installed on ANY ride.

                                          This is not hard .............
                                          You have a CM holding back the stand-by line. In the meantime .. that CM or another one is taking FPs from guests coming in. And sometimes ..... there's no break in between a herd of people with FPs .... and the stand-by line is still holding before one person is let through.

                                          As a regular annual pass holder for years ... I clearly remember the wait times on rides (Indy, Space Mountain, Big Thunder, etc.) .. then the FP system came in .. and what was once tolerable wait times .. turned into really long wait times.

                                          It changed the whole dynamic of a trip to the DLR.

                                          Unless you are there early ... and willing to run around both parks .. first thing .. to get your first fastpasses ... the day is semi wrecked.

                                          Or ... I just simply don't go on those rides that require FP anymore.

                                          And in light of all that ..... FP brings on more headaches .. whereas the time period prior to FPs was more tolerable.

                                          Visiting a theme park should be a relaxed, take-your-time sort of day. Now .... it's evolved into a "better run over to _______ ride as fast as you can for fastpass" - before you start to do anything.

                                          It shouldn't be that way. But I know some people prefer to hit the parks commando style. But not everyone wants their day turned into a stressful day .. running around for Fast Passes all day long.
