Testing the New X Pass/Fast Pass
The second dayworked out great. We had fast passes for Splash Mountain for between 9:10-10:10, Peter Pan's Flight between 10:55-11:55, Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh between 12:05-1:05, and Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin between1:35-2:35. When you get in the fast pass line, there is a scanner for your fast pass card. If the scanner turns green, you are in the time frame. If the scanner turns red, you are not in the time frame. The process itself was very easy.
We were also allowed to use our regular passes to get more fast passes. We get to ride a ton of rides the day we tested out the new fast pass. Keeping track of the times was easy. They emailed the confirmation of times and we could check our smart phones.
The possibility of being able to plan your fast passes before you even go on your trip is so incredible. It makes the idea of going during a busy time more appealing, since you know that you are guaranteed to get on some of your favorite rides. A Christmas break vacation is no longer out of the question.
