Walt Disney World has informed it's Cast members that from the 7th March 2012 the enforcement of the FASTPASS return time window will begin. At present Disney don't allow guests to enter the FASTPASS queue before their ticket window, but Cast Members have, up until now, allowed guests to return anytime from the start to the end of the day. Disney have said: “Guests can now arrive 5 minutes before their scheduled start time and up to 15 minutes after their scheduled end time. Guests arriving after this time will not be permitted to ride” It is thought that the next generation of FASTPASS is in the pipeline and this is why Disney are changing the rules. UPDATED INFORMATION From Wednesday, March 7, 2012 all guests will be expected to return within the return time window that is specified on the FASTPASS ticket that they received. This means that if a guest received a ticket that states "Return Between 10am and 11am" they will have to come to the attraction and use their Fastpass only between 10am and 11am Late arrivals will NOT be honored any longer. There are, of course, some exceptions. Guests that arrive either 5 minutes in advance or up to 10 minutes later will still be able to use the FASTPASS queue. Late FASPASSes will also continue to be honored in case of an attraction downtime, a delay in meal service or personal emergency.
