A wave of big changes may be about to arrive at Walt Disney World in the next few weeks. For starters the next annual price increase for [COLOR=#1B8EDE !important]admission[/COLOR] to the Walt Disney World theme parks is expected to take place sometime in the next 2-3 weeks, possibly as early as Feb. 1st, so if you were planning on buying tickets in advance, do it sooner than later to take advantage of the current lower pricing.
The other rumored big changes may have a lot to do with Disney current FastPass+ system. We know some charges are already taking place over at the Hollywood studios in terms of the attractions available for Tier 1 and Tier 2 reservations, along with adding Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run to the system on Feb. 19, but other more significant changes could be afoot.
One rumor says, Disney knows the current FP+ system is a bit of a mess, with too many advanced reservations taking place, making it impossible to even get FP+ reservations for the most popular attractions, even years after they have opened, such as the case with the Pandora area attractions. I’ve also wondered about the new systems Disney has been testing out with the Galaxy’s Edge attractions, having guests clumped together into Boarding Groups, and not allowing that system to be accessed until guests are actually on-site within the theme park itself. Logic would dictate that Disney may be testing out future concepts that could possibly be rolled out as a replacement for the current FastPass+ system.
The other big rumor, and this one is gaining more and more steam behind it, is that we may see Walt Disney World launch their own version of the MaxPass system as early as February. MaxPass was launched at Disneyland a couple of years ago as “paid” version of the FastPass concept. Guests can still [COLOR=#1B8EDE !important]get free[/COLOR] FastPass access, but they can pay extra to have several more added to their accounts for the day.
Again, these are all rumors right now, but something to definitely keep your eyes open for as it is only a matter of time before a PAID FastPass program is added to Walt Disney World as they have already been rolled out at most other Disney owned parks around the globe. This includes the previously mentioned MaxPass at Disneyland, the Disney Premier Access pass program at Shanghai Disneyland and and a couple of paid tier programs in effect at Disneyland Paris under names like Super FastPass and Ultimate FastPass.
