Disney Testing New FastPass

Disney to begin wider MyMagic+ testing

Walt Disney World, which has been slowly rolling out elements in its billion-dollar MyMagic+ technology project in recent months, is about to launch one of its broadest tests yet.

Beginning Wednesday, Disney will have all visitors to Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park — including day-trippers and guests staying at off-property hotels — use its new “FastPass+” ride-reservation system, which will allow them to book times for up to three attractions.

At the same time, Disney will for the first time turn off its existing FastPass system in Animal Kingdom, the paper-ticket-based reservation system that Disney World visitors have been using for more than a decade. Under the paper system, guests can generally get only FastPasses for one ride at a time, though they can also ultimately obtain more than three per day.
