Wait, do you hear that? Off in the distance. The faint sound. Growing closer. It’s the hoards of entitled WDW fans whining about a completely optional service as if it’s the death of the parks as we know it.

I wonder if there is a limit to the amount of times you can ride each traction? Because if this means I could ride fights passage 10 times in a row without waiting SIGN ME UP!!

I’m having trouble seeing the value here. Six FastPasses (several of which aren’t needed during much of the year), plus a little food. For a *really* high cost. This is more than the seven hour Backstage Magic.

Is there something I’m missing?

So it’s only ONE fast pass per ride? That I would skip, and totally see your point (aka, NO value there!). But if you could ride each attraction multiple times? Then I can see it. For the chance to do Flights of Passage alone over and over again in a row — I’d pay!

Is there an actual tour or is this a glorified fast pass?

No more annual passes for my family. Disney is not what it was at all. Transportaion sucks. Long lines even if you have a fast pass. Its all about money. They sold out customer service to make money. And they will but they will lose this long time annual pass holder thats for sure.

I don’t mind paying for extras at Disney, however, this is a ridiculous amount of money per person! Is it the same amount for kids too? Do you get unlimited rides? Yeah, this needs to be explained further.

This is just plain rude.

They could charge $1000.00. Here’s the thing, It’s optional. You don’t have to go. You forget that WDW attracts some rich people that are willing to pay, what seems like a lot to you, for something extra. Quit whining.

If you’re complaining about the price of this completely optional experience, the rest us just hear “I can’t afford this.”
