It's a Small Line After All: Disney Cracks Down on FastPass Abuse
For those who have not had the pleasure of parting with mortgage payments at Disneyland and California Adventure within the past 13 years, a FastPass is essentially a reservation ticket for a place in a shorter line feeding into a popular ride.
First, you pick up your FastPass near the ride's entrance. Stamped onto it will be a one-hour window when you can return and get in a fast lane to almost the front while all those suckers experiencing sunstroke wait it out in a line stretching to the Brea border.
The Mouse recently disclosed it is cracking down on FastPass abusers. The goal, says a Disney spokeseteer, is to maintain a fair system for all guests. How? By having attractions hosts deal with pass holders who arrive past the specified time window on a case-by-case basis.
And if that doesn't work, there is still the slave camp under Tom Sawyer's Island where they can and will send your sorry ass.
