As reported last week on the blog, Walt Disney World Cast Members have been instructed to begin strictly enforcing FASTPASS return times, beginning March 7, 2012 (just in time for the Spring Break travel season). They’ve been instructed to allow people to use their FASTPASSES up to five minutes prior to their printed return time (presumably to avoid crowds awaiting their window at the beginning of the FASTPASS queue line) and up to 15 minutes after the close of their FASTPASS window (but no later). Most speculation has centered on this being the next step toward implementation of the NextGen X-PASS system, which will eventually allow on-property guests to make at least some advance attraction reservations, much like advance dining reservations are made. But the important question for the short term is, how will the strict enforcement of FASTPASS return times affect the way you and your family tour Walt Disney World? Will you use FASTPASS more or less frequently? Will it cause you to change anything about your approach? Tell us about your reactions in the comments below!
