If you’ve been using extra tickets or someone else’s tickets to get extra FastPasses at Walt Disney World… STOP IT.
Because if you don’t, Disney might just put a stop to your “line jumping” themselves.
According to soon-to-be revised park rules, Disney will further clarify that guests may only use FastPass+ selections associated with the tickets they used to get into the park that day. Making FastPass selections with another ticket or using someone else’s tickets to score extra FastPasses could result in a temporary or even permanent ban of FastPass+ usage. Yikes!
Apparently a loophole had existed allowing people to use another set of tickets or MagicBand to book extra FastPasses. Some unofficial “guides” have even advertised unlimited FastPass+ usage by exploiting this loophole.
Well, those days are over, pal.
This is honestly the first I’ve ever heard of the ability to cheat the FastPass+ system. But like the Guest Assistance Cards before it, if there’s a loophole that allows for “unlimited magic” some people will find a way to exploit it.
UPDATE: According to WDW News Today, the punishment will be swift and severe.
Beginning today, any guest who books a FastPass using tickets not used for theme park admission that day will have their associated MyDisneyExperience account and the ability to book any further FastPasses locked at the end of that day. (…) Guests with these infractions will have to visit guest relations in order to unlock their accounts. Guest relations will only unlock the accounts if the act was deemed to not be malicious.
Permabanned from MyDisneyExperience? Wowza!
