Curious what will happen to fast passes that are booked already post closing date. I have a fastpass set for this already on 4/11. Is there any precedent for this. Will it turn to a muliple experience pass?
Closing date is May 26, your 4/11 FP is good.
Edit: unless you mean November 4, in which case you will likely receive a new FP booking, for an attraction at Disney’s discretion.

Last I checked November is well outside the 90 days for a fast pass...

The regulars here know who we are referring to so, in a way, I gave him credit :)

I agree we need confirmation but kudos to him if he is correct.
Ok, who is "He who must not be named" and what web site? I do realize this may be a dumb question considering you stated he must not be named but now I'm curious.

According to the Handy Dandy WDWMagic Calculator (https://www.wdwmagic.com/reservation-calculator.htm), today would have been the first day someone could have booked an SSE FP for 5/26, since CL FPs are based on checkout date, not check in date.

I had a theory about this:
View attachment 452028
Instead of it looking like the Egyptians invented illuminated hieroglyphics, what if that’s the “story light” and it basically illuminates important objects in a scene like that.
It's projection mapping, just like you've seen on the castle.
Along with perhaps a few new scenes built from the ground up.
I'm assuming the two year closure is because the ride track is being replaced.. everything else could be done in 8 months.

I'm wondering how the story light will actually work. With SSE being an omnimover, there are constantly people entering and exiting a specific scene, so I'd be curious to see how the light will "follow" you. Again, it could be a cool effect if done right. Emphasis on the "if", though.
 
Is the "story light" similar to the added effect to the last generation of MSEP at MK? It was a white curly ribbon/string of lights that was added to the side of each parade float, but sequentially lit up in order every few seconds. I thought I read somewhere that it was supposed to "tie" the floats together...?
