With the official opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on May 31st comes several changes at the Disneyland Resort. Many of those changes have involved enhancements to the physical aspects of Disneyland Park, like refurbishing Sleeping Beauty Castle and changing curbs to have slower inclines. But that’s not all. Changes have recently gone into effect on the Disneyland App, involving the new Replacement FASTPASS experience.
Guests of the Disneyland Resort can redeem FASTPASS for attractions either in person at designated kiosks or on their smartphones by using the Disneyland App and paying for the MaxPass system. In the past, when a guest had a FASTPASS for an attraction that temporarily closed at the time of redemption, the Disneyland App replaced the FASTPASS with a Multiple Experience.
Multiple Experience allowed guests to use their FASTPASS at any FASTPASS attraction throughout either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. However, Multiple Experience has since been replaced with a tiered system called Replacement FASTPASS.
With the new Replacement FASTPASS, guests will only be able to use their FASTPASS on an attraction that falls into the same tier as the initial attraction they obtained their FASTPASS for. For example, if you redeem a FASTPASS for Buzz Lightyear Astroblasters (a Tier 2 attraction) and it temporarily closes, you cannot use the FASTPASS on a Tier 1 attraction, like Space Mountain.
Most FASTPASS attractions are in Tier 2, however, there are some in Tier 1. They include Indiana Jones Adventure, Matterhorn Bobsleds, and Space Mountain at Disneyland Park. And Radiator Springs Racers and Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney California Adventure.
How do you feel about this new tiered system to FASTPASS at Disneyland Resort?
