Word on the street is WDW is enforcing Fast Pass return times starting March 7. Meaning guests will be allowed to return during the time frame indicated -- not anytime after, which is what the policy is now. thoughts? yay or nay? can any DL CM's confirm or deny? full story is here: http://blog.touringplans.com/2012/02/06/fastpass-return-time-enforcement-begins-march-7th/?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed

Lies. 😏 - Nyghtngale  572.3 #355 4:44PM
This really makes the fast passes worthless. All this ends up doing is wasting people's time while in the park. You can't get across the park during things like fireworks or parade times when areas are roped off or you have one way traffic etc. You can not control if you are in line for another attraction and your window happens to come up. You can't control if your child is sleeping or your eating and it's taking a while for everyone to finish your meal. A 1 hour window that isn't until 6 hours later you can not plan well for or you find yourself wasting a ton of time around the attraction waiting for your window with nothing to do. - Autoalice  161.4 #2545 6:27PM
Hmmmm I see this causing problems. - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 4:41PM
I guess I can't blame them if they start enforcing it at DLR.  It would be nice if they would expand the window to 2 hours instead of 1 hour if they do this.

Yeah, I would be ok with 2 hrs. I mean, i know rules are rules and all, but it sure makes it easier. - Ricko19  818.1 #224 5:15PM
Fast passes IMO just hold up the regular line. I don't use them unless I'm w my kids that swear by em. But eh I'm old, time in line is all I got. - 559MickeyLover  334.6 #725 5:19PM
Oh I'm sure the CMs are looking forward to the grumpiness that will ensue. - lostboy20  31.9 #5803 5:26PM
It would fix the end of night super long space mtn fastpass line. I could see them doing it & I can't really be mad cause that's what it says right on the pass. - supertracy  471.9 #453 6:02PM
I really hope this isn't true!!!!! - nodell111  166.4 #54 6:29PM
Well I don't go to wdw so I don't care - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 6:43PM
Going to wait for a CM to weigh in before I whine about it. Although I am prepared to whine vigorously. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #218 7:06PM
lmbo! - Ricko19  818.1 #224 7:13PM
I hope DL dosnt start doing that! :( - 1derland  124.8 #3133 4:45PM
That's what I'm thinking, but idk. It seems like something Disney would do. - PrincessMacy  536.5 #385 4:45PM
That would not be cool. We tried doing this before we knew you could go anytime after the time, it was not real easy.

Indy time is already ahead by about 5minutes.  - Applek_CM  246.0 #1402 5:33PM
WDW wouldnt have a problem with their Space Mountain because there two different loading areas. I would totally believe this if it were starting in Disneyland. But I highly doubt this is actually hoping to happen. - Nyghtngale  572.3 #355 6:06PM
I really hope this isn't true. I remember the days of trying to run from one end of DCA to another end of DL and having to rush out of the hotel to try to make the fastpass window, and that wasn't fun. Sometimes you can't help it if you miss the window. - Bo22  394.2 #570 6:11PM
Probably due to a big RAK problem. :-) - SorcererBHhaha  409.0 #548 6:53PM

I was told by a CM that they were having a big meeting in January to decide on the issue for DL.Β  I am hoping that since they did not annouce it for DL they decided to wait.Β  She said as long as it does not get out of hand at DL, it works well but some people in the company feel that the lines are actually longer for non fast passers if they allow us to come back anytime.Β  I told her it really helps us be able to go to better restaurants, etc., if we know we have some time to get back to a ride.Β  - secretagentangel  4658.5 #28 7:20PM
My concern is what if the ride is broken down during your fastpass window?? Then you can't go later?? Or will they bend the rules then? - SarahLovesDisney  85.2 #3836 7:24PM
Before we knew you could use them the rest of the day we tried to get there in the window. Do you know how many passes we threw out because we couldn't get there or how fast we ran or how long we stood around waiting for our window because we already did that land when getting the passes. With kids this is torture! Telling them we couldn't go on something afterall because we missed the window. Talk about meltdowns!! - Autoalice  161.4 #2545 7:27PM
I think it would be like now that if the ride breaks down, they will give you your pass back if you are in line or just let you come back later.  that happens a lot on Indiana Jones.
