I like this better than an escort, because the FastPass line is often as large as the Stand-By line. And even when it isn't, it's not like it's a 'right-to-the-front' pass, anyways. There's still waiting to do.

Oh, and Robert -

Tournament idea - I know a lot of people on here fantasize about being able to design their own ride.
How about people are given a week or so to come up with a short description of their best idea for an attraction, including what it is, where it would be, the theme, the technical specifications, the layout, etc. The best ideas would be pitted against each other and voted for.

If we wanted to get into it, a concept art picture (or something of the like) could be thrown in the mix for added depth.

When my sister used to work at EPCOT in the mid 80's, she told me once after the park had closed, Michael Jackson and a couple of people with him had the park all to himself for nearly 4 hours. Of course that might be because at the time, they had the Captain EO film at the park at the time.

Yeah, thats a better idea than the escort guys. Having a fast pass all day is a whole lot better.

My story:

In 1998, I went to the magic kingdom with a bunch of friends... just chillin... Anyways, it was our 5th time on space mountain and we got all the way to the point where you go through the bars to enter you "ship" and this two guys went passing through, I said: What are you doing? Wait like everyone else!"... Well I guess it was a celebrity and a body guard or somthing because this one dude turned around with this ANGRY FACE and told me I had no idea who I was talking to.
It took me a while to figure out the other guy was a "VIP"

But thats good, they can wait like the rest of us.

Of course, this opens a new game of one-ups-manship, as getting the FastPass is now the "entry level" of VIP status, and having a tour guide becomes the "elite level."
