Weeks after revealing a new FastPass option for Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at the Magic Kingdom, Chip and Co. has the scoop on a yet-to-be announced addition to Disney’s popular FastPass (FP) service.
No longer will guests have to wait in the long lines to get a FastPass to their favorite attractions. To help reduce the long lines guests may face waiting to get a FastPass ticket, Walt Disney World will offer a Fast Pass option for obtaining a Fast Pass.
You heard it here first – soon you will be able to stand in a line to get a Fast Pass for a Fast Pass!
When asked about the program, a Disney Cast Member, who will remain Anonymouse said, “I’ve never heard of it, wait who are you guys again?”
Although Disney has yet to confirm its existence, Chip and Co. has heard the Fast Pass service will be called the “FastPass for FastPass,” or “FP 4 FP” – because abbreviations with numbers always sound more cutting edge and cooler.
These “FP 4 FP” tickets provide a one-hour window when guests can return and stand in another special Fast Pass line to score their actual FastPass ticket. Once that regular FastPass window opens, guests can finally enter the FP line to the attraction.
Disney anticipates that “FP 4 FP” will help manage lines and prove popular with guests for whom waiting in line is an essential part of the Disney magic. By offering “FP 4 FP,” guests will be able to spend more time in different lines, thus adding variety to a Walt Disney World vacation. Sorta like getting your Fast Passes before you even goto the Disney Parks.
“FP 4 FP” will also allow guests to spend more time enjoying other Disney World experiences – such as souvenir shopping and eating Dole Whips – instead of the attractions themselves.
No firm date has been set for the implementation of “FP 4 FP,” but Chip and Company expects it to be some time soon after the Avatar & Marvel comes to the Disney Parks.
Chip and Co. would be interested in hearing in what you think of “FP 4 FP.” Let us know in the comment box below.
Remember, with a Chip and Co. Scoop – you heard it here first. (And maybe only here.) If you haven’t picked up on it yet this is just a joke 🙂
