DVCNews Debates: FastPass+

DVCNews Debates

On Thursday, January 23, 2014, Walt Disney World will permanently shutter the last of its paper ticket FASTPASS machines.  Going forward, all 4 parks will only support the FastPass+ product which features precise online scheduling of attraction return times while (presently) allowing only 3 FastPass entitlements per guest, per day.
