Cheaters Beware! Walt Disney World Cracking Down on FastPass+ Abuse

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!

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.

  1. The line cutting has also gotten really bad . A mom or dad will wait in line and when they are getting closer call their family to tell them . They all show up and say my mom is up ahead can I get past . People did this all day . The cell phone just gave them another fast pass . Please if you do this stop. Show up as a family and wait . I am not talking about fast pass . This is happening in the standard lane . Let about thirty people pass and it gets old !

    • I second that! It is VERY Frustrating. If they are unable to wait in line medically, they should go to guest services and get the medical pass.
