Today In Disney History ~ July 21st


Guests use their park ticket or Key to The World at Fastpass distribution centers, and receive a paper ticket with a one-hour return time printed on it.  Fastpass allows guests to avoid long lines at the attractions on which the system is installed, freeing them to enjoy other attractions during their wait. The original paper Fastpass was the world’s first theme-park attraction reservation system, which allowed guests to get a return time for select attractions, and return during that time and use a shorter Fastpass Queue to enter the attraction.
The service is available at no additional charge to all Disney park guests, unlike at many other amusement parks that charge an additional front of line fee. Originally all the Disney parks used a paper Fastpass option, but in 2013 Walt Disney World started moving their parks to the new digital FastPass+ system.
In December of 2014 Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel that the MyMagic+ technology that FastPass+ is connected to, should start appearing in Disneyland and other parks during the next couple of years.

Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
