One of the biggest perks of staying on property at a Walt Disney World is the benefit of the 60-day booking window for FastPass+ reservations. Those who have park only tickets are only able to book 30 days out. Disney has found a way guests are abusing this program, giving some an unfair advantage on those coveted hard to get reservations. Hold on to your Mickey ears, come the beginning of February, a new policy will be set in place to stop the abuse.
Disney has found an alarming number of guests who have been booking room packages to take advantage of the 60-day window, only to cancel their resort hotel room once they are able to book their FastPass+ reservation. This created a “loophole” allowing the guest to keep those hard to get FastPass+ picks ahead of others.
Now, guests who cancel their room reservations will have their FastPass+ reservations canceled as well. This new policy would immediately also cancel their FastPass+ reservations when their resort rooms are canceled. These guests would have to re-book the reservations once their 30-day window opened for their park only tickets.
This new policy would benefit those who book reservations on property at the Walt Disney World Resorts keeping that extra privilege just for resort guests. What do you think of this change? How will it affect your next trip to Walt Disney World?
