    I think in all the years we have been going I have never taken advantage of FastPass Why I just don't know, maybe because we don't tend to stay at the parks for a long time and so the return time is too late.

    Do you use FastPass and could you imagine visiting WDW without it?

    Yes, Maam we do. Every time. First thing we send out our scouting party (either my brother and myself or me and my daughter) with all the group's passes to hit our favorite in each park. We then meet by an attraction based upon our fast pass return time. We have it down quite well by now.

    We never have until this last trip. We were having lunch near Soarin' and when I ran in it just so happened that the return time was just before our reservation at Garden Grill. So I got the passes and we (except for my Mom and Marc) got on just before dinner. There was an 80 minute wait, but it took us about 20 minutes to get on.

    We almost always have a fast pass in our possession. As soon as we enter the parks we get a FP for one of the big rides(Space Mtn,Splash,Soarin,TSM) and then we take it from there. I think it's one of the best ideas that Disney has come up with in terms of making our park experience more pleasant. I would never wait on a 90 minute line or even a 60 minute line and with FP I don't have to.

    Almost never

    Occasionally we ll be by a ride and it'll say 60mins and we ll think ok fast pass and come back later but we re definitely not going all out to plan them or anything. I'd say maybe one the whole trip

    We generally do. However, most of the time when we are there the waits are not too long, except for Soarin' and TSM. At TSM we have actually had the chance to grab a fast pass and ride twice before we even used our fast pass.

    Very very rarely, the timing has never worked out great for us - if theres a big queue for something we will give it a miss and come back later.
    I remember doing a fp once for RnR and the ride broke down, so it actually wouldve been quicker for us to stand in the normal queue earlier on!

    We do for some things. Especially if it is in a decent time frame. I do not like getting a FP in the am and not being able to ride until the evening. We tend to hop around so this does not always work out for us. AND we have tried to give or FP's to others so they can use it. THis is much more difficult than one would imagine.

    We never did, and sometimes would take fps and forget tocome back on time, but this past trip, being Easter, we were only able to do as much as we did, because we used fps wherever we could!
