    I don't get how it makes the line "longer"

    In fact, forget the queue, don't even look at it.
    Instead look at the boarding.
    When you see guests getting on Big Thunder, Space, or Splash... aren't they getting into the ride a continuously flowing rate?
    The only reason it makes the queue longer is because it creates two lines.
    If you get rid of fastpass, all those fastpassers will have to get into the regular queue, making the queue line longer in the end.
    *Sigh*

    So, when you get a Fastpass you are virtually waiting in line for a ride. So while you are virtually waiting in one line, you are off in another line making both lines longer.

    Not to mention the fact that virtually waiting and waiting are two different things. Fastpasses mean that CM's have to stop the line to keep the line beyond that point under 10 minutes. By doing this it drastically lows down the line.

    I would be okay with Fastpasses if they reduced them down to Space, Indy, and Splash, and then cut the amount of Fastpasses they give out by 30-50% that way there are less fastpasses given out and less people waiting in two lines.

    The queue beyond the Fastpass collection point is what the entire line should be like. Fastpasses should have a slow drip into a line instead of a wave.

    Plus, ever heard of a thing called patience?

    Yes, that will make the queue longer. But why wait in a queue when there is a fastpass for a ride.
    Especially for rides like Big Thunder on the days where the queue is 30 min, and fastpass return is an hour and a half. Yes, 30 min isn't a long wait at all. But why wait 30 min in a line when you could be enjoying a show at the Golden Horseshoe while you wait?

    The best way to hit that ride is when the park opens.

    Yeah but I also remember in the movie Doc had some sort of room to help cars.
    Oh, yeah, he also had the courthouse, and he would go on something that lifted him up that was like the lifts they had at mechanics. I wonder how much of the buildings from the movie they'll include? That would be cool if it was done somewhat like Toontown, where you can explore all the different buildings.

    It's been more of the range of what you said, but still it's doing a lot better than everyone thought it would. I was trying to say that just because we expect things to die down in a couple years OTHER things are most likely going to keep the lines just as long as they are.

    However, there needs to be a balance. You can't have fastpass on everything. Toy Story as is, sucks up some of the people waiting for their Screamin or Soarin fastpasses to become available.

    I would support adding fastpass to Toy Story if they removed it from one of those other two attractions.
    I'll give you that.
    The queue line could def use some imagination in it.

    Can you explain what ramones, firehouse, and courhouse are going to be. I didnt know they were rides.

    I only thought there was going to be the Test Track Type one and Lugis.

    I was talking about where they were going to put the Fastpass distribution for the Racers ride, those aren't attractions. Ramone's is the paint and body shop, which is one of the buildings in Radiator Springs. The Firehouse is another building in RS, the building right at the end of Route 66 where you enter the Radiator Springs Racers ride. This firehouse building was also used by the characters in the movie as a courthouse. There are three rides in the new land, Radiator Springs Racers, Luigi's Roaming Tires, and Mater's Junkyard Jamboree.

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.
    I don't think I've seen it over an hour since the week it opened. I have seen it 20 minutes many more times then I have seen it over an hour. Usually it's in the 35-40 minute range, which is still way longer then I'm willing to wait.

    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.
    Oh, I see now. Fastpass seems like a good idea, with good intentions, but it just doesn't work unless it's on rides who currently have short wait times(which, then, don't even need FastPass added)

Even on hot days, they don't go that quickly. And I go every month, on Saturdays, several times a month, all year long.
    The times I've been there .. the return time for FPs are late, close to park closing. (NIGHT time) And I'm in no mood to be getting wet at night OR when close to leaving.
