  • Wonder why all of us didn’t get an email? I have reservations for that week. Called around 11 this am and the spots were booked. 😞

  • Thanks Disney. Want to know when my email came…12:36 pm THIS AFTERNOON!!!! How in the heck was I ever suppose to know about that AFTER THE FACT? There are no slots available anymore.😭

  • I wish that Disney actually sent the email to all the passholders. I never received it. I have checked my info and they have my correct email but i never received it. But this is the Disney way. They are happy to tKe my money but not send me info that i should get with my annual pass.

  • My email came at 4:36 pm and everything was gone by then. Disappointed that the email was sent so late, when many of the slots were taken.

  • We are disney pass holders and we didnt get a email either . And I try to register on the site it just says event is full . Are they going to open up.any more ???even being pass holders we can never get on new rides when they open :(

    • I seriously had no idea about this. How do we get opted in to these kind of emails alerting if there is an AP only event thing?

  • We have been passholders for 5years and never get emails to ride rides before the public . Why is this ?????and it really stinks knowing we live here and only get 30 days put to get a fast pass. It will probably be over 6months before we can get one

    • Diane, I am with you!!! We never receive ANY notice of ANY special perks for being passholders. To have to read about it after the fact is just annoying. We shouldn’t have to search for our benefits that WDW sold us on as perks of being passholders. Disappointed to say the least!
