  • [Question] Fast Pass Systems For Parades

    I posted this in the WDW section, as well:

    With the success of the Fast Pass system form World Of Color here in DL, they are thinking of doing it for parades in WDW. If that is a success, they may implement it for DL parades. What would happen if they did this for the parades at DL?

    Where would the FP viewing areas be?

      I don't think it would work at Disneyland due to space issues. They would need to create a viewing area for the fastpasses to access. Not really sure if there is room to put anything like that.

        The Small World Mall might work. The FP machines could even be installed on the old MBC dock.

          But on many shows, the best effects are castle-specific so they'd have to flip to effects, and it's certainly not the same as viewing from the hub.

            I have to admit: I don't really get it from the brief article. It sounds like they are doing a priority viewing area for FP holders and non-FP holders are relegated to other areas....but why? How does this help anything other than reward people for prioritizing the parade? Is this a crowd traffic issue?

            For me, I love wandering out of an attraction, remembering that a parade is about to start and finding a small patch of pavement to catch a fairly decent view. It's starting to drive me crazy that, in order to "fully" take advantage of your day, you're being encouraged to have it planned meticulously. If I want to schedule myself to death, I'll stay home and go to work.

            I just hope that they don't start this with everything. I will lose it if they start to micromanage the fireworks.

              I was talking about the parade, not the fireworks.

                  If the fast pass system for parades would succeed, then the fireworks would be next. Who knows, they might even do it for Fantasmic! I believe if they do this, it would have to do with foot traffic in that area.

                    It would be pretty tough to do it for the fireworks, unless Main Street and the Hub were barricaded off. I don't think Disney is willing to pony up for the extra CMs they would need to keep people without FPs out.

                      I really hope this idea does NOT catch on for the Disneyland parades. I agree with everyone who has said that logistically, it would be nearly impossible. They can't control access to a main entry and exit point the way they can control access to Paradise Pier, hidden in a corner.

                      If they wanted to have a special small VIP viewing area that required FP or tickets--say a small grandstand near the statue--THAT could work. The entire parade route? No way.

                      I also agree with everyone who has said that part of the fun of the parade is its spontaneity. Whenever we have ended up doing a parade it has been a fun last minute thing...we have wandered off a ride, we're tired, we happen to be in the Main Street or iasw area, etc. If we had to plan Parade attendance hours in advance--the way you have to do it with the World of Color passes--we would never end up going.

                          They desperately need a FP system for Fantasmic! before they need it for parades.

                            OR....

                            Maybe just limit access to the whole park thru some sort of "unique" system whereby everyone entering the gates pays market value.
