Call me crazy, but Disney’s fast pass service is something that we have never and will never use. For some, this is the most convenient and efficient way to see everything that Disney has to offer. I can remember vacationing to Disney as a little girl and standing hours and hours in anticipation waiting for our turn to ride. It made waiting for the attraction so worth it. It was what made Disney for us… well, Disney. You stand in lines and you wait. That is how we have always seen Disney. Now that Disney has fast pass, you can get your stub and return to the line later with little or no wait.
For us, that’s not Disney. Call us old fashioned but standing in line doesn’t bother us. On a recent visit to Walt Disney World, we learned that some of the attractions fast pass lines were longer than the stand by line. That was very surprising. In some ways, I think that they shouldn’t have a fast pass system, as in, everyone has to wait their turn but I know and understand that waiting 2 hours for a ride such as Toy Story Mania, isn’t for everyone. How do you feel? Are you a new state of the art fast passer or are you old fashioned like me and stand Disney style in line and wait it out?
