Disney to change FastPass?
Written by Bradley Robertson
As reported by the Orlando Sentinel today, it looks like Disney may change not only how FastPass tickets are distributed, but also potentially creating guest tiers. Disney filed a patent application last week that "would use central computers to manage distribution of FastPass tickets throughout Disney World's four Central Florida theme parks and at Disneyland in Southern California." While that isn't very specific, it is thought this may allow guests to get their FastPass tickets via text messages or even email. Additionally, the patent application references "that the technology could be used to give preferential treatment to people who spend more money at the resort."Tweet
When asked to comment on the application a Disney spokesperson told the Orlando Sentinel that FastPass distribution wasn't changing and that they planned to use the technology discussed in the patent for several things.
If you don't already stay on Disney property when you visit Orlando will the possibility of this tiered system make you more likely to do so?
