  • 2-hr Fastpass Window at TDR

    Last week, I noticed something interesting that I have never seen before at TDR or any other Disney Resort before.... FPs with a 2-hr return time window as opposed to the customary 1hr window. I do not know if this is a permanent or temporary change due to the fact that TDR was forced to close fr 8 days in a row due to extreme attendance and crowd conditions.... But wonder if any of the other parks will also adopt this change to FP....

    Interesting...but I don't really want to see that happen at WDW...imagine how screwed up it could get unless they keep shutting FP off at certain attractions (HM and Philharmagic :thumbup

      They look so... so... exotic. Does anyone know if they're enforcing the two hour window or letting things slide for the rest of the day like DL?

          Doubtful. The CMs at TDR *never* let anything slide. They are very proffesional and military-like the way they handle the park's rules and regulations.

            That's good. Letting guests in with expired Fastpasses only delays the standy line.

              But you're assuming that the real rule is the same as is printed on the FP. I could easily see the official rule being that they don't enforce the end of the return time.

              Also, when I was there last month, I noticed that the return window was only the usual 1 hour. I wonder what was up with the 2-hour thing?

                The two-hour rule is still being tested at the both parks. One hour return times are still the norm. There have also been different return times offered, like 55-minutes.

                  55 min? Does that cut off of 5 min make a difference?

                    That is correct. I got me a Hunny Hunt FP on tuesday with a window of 8:25pm-8:55pm, and keep in mind the park closed at 10pm.

                      A 30 minute return time?! When did you get the Fastpass? Maybe it was because the park was relatively uncrowded...

                        No, the short return time might be due to the fact that the Dreamlights parade ends about 8:15pm in that area of the park. Since many guests will try to get on the attraction during that time, FP's are limited.

                          No. That is because the ride will stop and close at 10pm sharp. That means they will close the line at about 9pm so they can filter everyone in line (stand by and FP) thru the ride before 10pm. This is not your average WDW operation here... Most CMs do need to be out of the park by a certain time so they can catch their trains home that evening. Everything at TDR shuts down at closing time, unlike the other parks where shops and some restaurants stay open past closing time. Reason why you will never see such WDW perks as "Extra Magic Hours" offered past 10pm at TDR, ever.

                            So it's not like the US parks where you only have to be in line when the park closes? They really start turning people away an HOUR before park closes? Seems a bit harsh, but I guess it's best to know it advance.

                              It depends on the wait time for the queue. If the sign reads a one hour wait, then they will close the entrance for other guests one hour before. If it says 30min, then they close it half an hour before park closes.
