Rumor Version of MaxPass coming to WDW in May?

Not that they'd listen to me but what I think they should do with FP going forward is:

1) Get rid of the reservations and turn it into an app/kiosk based version of the original paper FP system. Use the same rules that you can only hold 1 FP at a time unless the return window is over two hours away.

2) Have a maximum number of FP per day for each person. Maybe something like 4 for guests not staying at a Disney Resort, 5 if you are staying at a Disney resort. Then sell add-ons at like $5 per FP if you want more, charged as you book them in the app.

To prevent the popular rides from running out of FPs before 11 AM, they can only distribute return slots for a capped amount of time from the current time. If you made that cap 3 hours, for example, no ride could run out of FPs until 3 hours before closing.
I wouldn't even do that. The only way to limit FP is to charge a premium for it. Follow Shanghai and charge $100 per person for 8 attractions

I could see a 3 tiered fast pass offering @WDW, that follows same system as Shanghai

Probably a Multi Park Offering for 1 day of your vacation

And then a One Park Offering by Day

And then a Vacation long offering. ( They obviously give you a cut on the per day price if you take this one)

I cant see them moving to a pay per use fast pass system on either coast, only way they would do this is if its a live dynamic pricing model based on the current wait time, but that could get ugly fast from a PR perspective being compared to uber ext

Any updates on the FP 'on' glitch that was talked about last week? We're heading down to the world on the 24th, so if there is a possibility of any sort of FP turning on, I'd like to get ahead of it.

It was the app's built in way of seeing if their was park reservations. Somebody interpreted the code wrong when they made that guess.

So no FP coming ..

The park pass system was certainly cloned from the FP system.

Pretty sure the FP system is still there, it’s just turned off right now.

It appears they used the infrastructure of the FP system to accommodate the park reservation system.
It’s not like they permanently deleted the FP code but it actually could make it more complicated to bring it back. Can’t just be turned back on.

The odds seem against the return of the pre-existing FP+ system.

I agree the odds aren’t good for the return of FP+

Talk about testing the market value of ride values. We would get a quick idea of Max time waits for rides.

I was scrolling one of the DVC member newsfeeds this morning on Facebook and someone dropped on instagram how her and her family were able to do multiple FOP rides in one day due to something new that was coming out in May, but she couldn't go into detail just yet. Lots of comments were thinking that MaxPass will be showing up in WDW.

I searched the WDW forums and it doesn't look like this has been discussed yet. If it has, please delete and or send me to the right thread. Thx.
What is fop?

Not until they ease social distancing. Which is topical right now, so watch this space.

I will add that just because they can do so doesn’t mean that DIsney will do so immediately.

That's exactly it. The Fastpass lines are still being used right now, for DAS mostly, and can actually back up pretty far for some attractions. FP won't be back until that issue is resolved, and that's the earliest possible time point.

If they offered something similar for a similar price at WDW, 80% of the guests would buy it and it wouldn't be useful.

It should be a lot more then that. Make it over $100 per person per day. It's got to be priced high enough that it deters most from buying it.

All MaxPass got you is the ability to collect “paper” Fastpass on your phone. You were at very little advantage over those who don’t buy it so I don’t think there was a need to up the price. Things like Universal Express pass that guarantee low waits need higher prices to limit the amount of users. Whereas with MaxPass it didn’t really matter if everyone in the park paid for it, as everyone in the park could collect the same Fastpass at the kiosk.
