    Yesterday saw the start of the testing of the new FASTPASS+ system at the Magic Kingdom.

    Over the course of the last month or so, Disney have installed blue posts in front of many of the major attractions around the Magic Kingdom featuring a Mickey Mouse icon. These posts are being used as a temporary scanning area to read RFID equipped FASTPASS+ cards.

    According to Jim Hill Media, Disney is recruiting Guests to take part in this two-week-long field test by randomly selecting people at Orlando International Airport as they check-in for Disney's Magical Express and asking them if they wish to take part in a survey.

    Various reports coming out of the Magic Kingdom, say that when Guests arrive at the ride for their reserved time, they scan their card using the a sensor, which sends their reservation information to a nearby to a Cast Members iPad which shows the Cast Member the guest’s name, any special events the party may be celebrating, and if the guest’s return window is valid. The Guest goes through the FASTPASS+ entrance as usual and scans the card again, where another Cast Member verifies that it is valid and the Guest continues on to board the ride.

    The following attractions are currently being tested:

    • Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
    • Haunted Mansion
    • Jungle Cruise
    • Mickey’s PhilharMagic
    • Peter Pan’s Flight
    • Space Mountain
    • Splash Mountain
    • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh


    Once the 2 week testing period has ended these posts will be taken down.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
