Disneyland will be getting the FastPass+ system in 2016.
Since the introduction of the MyMagic+ system to the Walt Disney World parks in 2014, many have speculated if or when this system would rolled out to Disney’s other theme parks, namely Disneyland. Opinions varied if Disney’s MyMagic+ or the Florida Disney World version of the FastPass+ system would be a good fit for the California-based Disneyland park.
WDWNT reported a few details on what the forthcoming FastPass+ system will look like when it eventually rolls out later in 2016. Here are a few of the details:
- Paper FastPasses at Disneyland will be eliminated.
- Guests will only be able to reserve a single FastPass at a time at Disneyland, unlike the maximum of 3 at Disney World.
- Guests will only be able to reserve a FastPass the day of their visit. No advance reservations will be available.
- Once a FastPass has been either used or the window of return has expired, guests may reserve another FastPass.
- Guests will be able to reserve FastPasses at Disneyland via smartphone (mobile) app, online, or an in-park kiosk. Guests will be able to reserve FastPasses anywhere in the park and will no longer need to go to each individual attraction to obtain a FastPass. In-park FastPass kiosks will be available in certain locations throughout the park.
It appears, however, Disneyland will not be getting the Magic Bands. Instead, guests of Disneyland would potentially be given some sort of RFID card or a hard ticket with a bar code.
As with anything, plans could change at any point with this rollout of the MyMagic+ system.
Let us know what you think. Should Disneyland even take this step towards introducing the MyMagic+ system for their guests, or is this something that’s long been overdue? We’d love to hear from you!!!
