[QUOTE=Soundgod;1919093372]This sounds like a fast pass for people who can’t get a fast pass.[/QUOTE]
It was. Then the standby tickets ran out and people got ticked when they were told the standby line was closed. I wasn’t there but I guess there were enough unhappy guests that Disney opened the standby line to everyone so they had all the return standby cards but also walk up standby guests. So at least for now this test appears to be a fail.
The day before the test the increased the number of CMs working in the Land and made traffic one way on each side. There was a rope just inside the doors and CMs directing people to go the correct direction. They also reopened the old fastpass distribution area as the place where the standby cards were handed out.
Honestly, I’m thinking Disney has reached my limit as to how scheduled I want my park time to be. I felt like we had very little flexibility this year and now the testing of no standby at certain attractions really scares me. If I don’t mind a 60+ minute wait I feel like I should be able to get in line and wait it out. We now have to pick one Fastpass between Test Track and Soarin and now we might not even be able to get in standby for the other attraction. We go often enough that one missed ride won’t ruin our vacation but what about the once in a lifetime family who paid $100 each to get in the park and are then told they can’t wait in line because all the cards are handed out for that day?
