#News- Fast Pass return times will be enforced starting Monday, February 18. This means that a guest must return within the hour printed on the FP, with the exception of the attraction breaking down during the return time.

Leads will be cracking down big time on CM's for not enforcing them, too! It may not seem that great, but in the end it will help keep wait times down and lines moving like they should be! Truly utilizing FASTPASS (ie. enforcing return times) will be the most efficient way for us to keep wait times at a minimum. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 8:56PM
By cracking down, are you all being issued Indian Jone's whips??? Scary, but gotta keep us in line!! :) - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 2:39PM
I don't understand why this is an issue. It should've been done this way in the first place. I hope it keeps the lines moving at a more efficient pace. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 9:33AM
And thanks for posting BBM! 😊 - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 9:34AM
Yeah. I never even knew they weren't enforced til MW. Would've been nice to know when autopia broke down during our return time 😝 - cesium55  531.8 #390 9:50AM
Trust me folks, from a CM that does work a fastpass attraction: Signs will be posted informing guest that the end times will be enforced. There will be exceptions of course. Down times, special circumstances, etc. We want the lines to move as efficiently as possible and the fastpass system has helped with that greatly. No system is perfect but it is one more step to even better systems that are coming. - JungleBum  1017.0 #182 8:03AM
Well said! Thanks for the quality info lately! You'll have to take over my job when I go on maternity :P - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 8:58AM
Some masked vigilante had already mentioned this, but nice to see it confirmed! - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #341 8:39PM
Thanks for the confirmation BBM...we are so lucky to have amazing CM MWers to keep us updatedπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - Linzee  1188.6 #146 8:53PM
I'm glad they're gonna start doing this finally. Definitely not cool to have to wait extra at the end of the day because everyone with fastpass get priority. - TikiJOSEsWingman  332.4 #733 9:03PM
Thanks!! - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #179 8:36PM
Thanks!! - Armenda  1159.7 #152 8:36PM
Oh no! I am one of those that count on being able to fast pass any time after the time printed! This is gonna require an adjustment!! - DeneciePie  330.4 #746 8:51PM
Sorry! I do the same thing, but if course, the times have printed since day 1 and technically speaking, we should always follow it, enforced or not. But with such large peak season crowds, we need to get used to it! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 8:58PM
Its actually been a privilege that Disney has let FPs go on like this. Now everyone has to abide the rules like they were supposed to do when FPs were first introduced - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:03PM
Thanks BBM! Good to know what I get to look forward to! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 8:53PM
What will happen if you're a few minutes late? Tough luck? Is that how strict it's going to be? - ima-pirateswife  745.0 #260 8:59PM
There's going to be some grace period, but not sure how much. - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:02PM
What will happen if you don't make it back in time? Thank You for heads up MWers , Admin, CM you so totally rock. Now I will have to put that in phone to remember - crazyblktinko  249.6 #1355 9:01PM
like I said above, there's probably going to be a grace period, but the amount of time, we'll have to see. - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:08PM
Wow, this is a big deal. Thanks for sharing the news. Although it's not always something we wanted to happen, we knew it would sooner or later. - Oinker34  1448.8 #116 9:06PM
exactly - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:12PM
Aw man, the rule's going into effect the exact day I'm going to Dland next! Oh well. Thanks for the heads up; I definitely will have to make an adjustment for this. - melamo  7.3 #13638 9:06PM
Cool can't wait! - rbeezy  703.0 #275 9:08PM
Thank you for the official heads up. - LaPearleNoir  1789.6 #94 9:14PM
I honestly didn't even know that you could come back after your fast pass time until I found out WDW was cracking down on that. Thanks for the post. - treradical  126.2 #3096 9:28PM
We always would try to get back on time as we kind of felt like we'd be the first one's they'd try to enforce it with (just kind of felt like it was impending). I guess now it's here, it would really suck to be like a minute or two late and get turned away but where do they draw the line, has always been the tough thing with this. - Mikesaxclar  679.8 #294 9:46PM
Wow thanks for the update BBM - NightmareKaren  364.3 #629 9:53PM
Thanks for the update. Can't wait to see all the angry people now who have trouble following the rules :-p - tiggertwin  331.9 #736 10:20PM
Would it be possible to talk about the new CEV procedure too for those that are disabled? We ran into some issues this trip with my brother who was in a motorized cart...its now basically a hand written "fast pass" type system too? This wasnt pushed during our new years visit. - aphboomwha  137.6 #2925 10:33PM
Thank you for the update regarding this. Personally I think this is a great as it will allow the FastPass system to truly work the way it is supposed to. - Bibba  462.5 #470 10:53PM
πŸ˜” Thanks for the info. - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 10:58PM
Is enforced at WDW. - Winnie111286  12310.8 #4 11:00PM
That's a good thing. It will ensure the Fast Pass system truly works as intended. - Experiment818  1647.2 #101 11:02PM
What happens if the ride is down when you go to use your FP... - RobinandSteve  249.3 #1358 7:18AM
They will make exceptions for this - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 7:28AM
Thanks for the update. Sad to hear it's really happening, but glad we have time to get adjusted. I know it was always a privilege and really loved taking advantage, but now I will just employ a new strategy. - Sarafina  491.7 #432 9:33AM
bump- today is the day! - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 1:52PM
I noticed CM's starting it over the weekend. Go CM's! Big pat on the back to you all! - MeridasHair  346.5 #687 2:45PM
how does this affect guests with gac's with alt entrance(i.e. we can use handicap entrance or fastpass)? We've been able to use the fastpass lines of any attractions that had them as of superbowl sunday. They had signs up saying they would be enforcing return times, but I just renewed our gac, and the CM who renewed it didn't say anything about any changes, nor did any other CM we encountered that day. I just want our next trip to be as smooth as our previous trips...the more I know ahead of time, the better I can plan our trip. Has anyone had any experience with this in the last couple days? - Mandathewitch  355.6 #660 2:11PM
Yes you just use them as you normally have. There are no time restrictions for GAC. I did however had a GAC FP for racers with a return time of 2:15pm it was broken down at that time then I returned late that evening. The cm mentioned about me being late but there is no time widow printed on those. It just said after a certain time. I told the cm the attraction was broken down at 2:15 and he let me through. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #179 2:23PM
