Thread: Fastpass Booking Window

  1. #26

    Thanks for the info. As I said, I'll be trying the test seat in September, and then going from there.

    I can understand the claustrophobia. From my experience, it really felt much more "open" than one would think.

    Also, as for the test car... the CM said I didnt "fit." I tried anyway.
    I fit. It was a great time!

    I don't mind pushing myself into the test vehicle. I'd have a BIG problem with waiting for the ride, finally getting there, and THEN finding out that I don't fit.

    If the picture you use on here is fairly accurate you're about the same size as me and I had no issues at all.

    Good to hear! I don't think I've gained that much since that pic.

    But that is kinda what I was getting at... the vehicle - which is manned by a CM, tries to determine if you would or would not fit on the actual rilde.
    AND - If I would have listened to him, I would have missed out - and so would have my friend that was traveling with me.

    What I am getting at is that I thought the same thing as you. I would have been beyond disappointed.... but I am glad I took the chance... dare I say gamble... that I would have fit regardless.

    Since we are going to be staying off property (gasp, I know!) In November, I guess I'll have to wait for the thirty day AP window to try to get FPP for Pandora and the rest...

    We're just closing out our 30-day window for our trip in September staying off-property. Indeed the FP booking window opens at 4am Pacific, 7 am Eastern and you can only book one day at a time when staying off-property. There were no FoP fastpasses available during our booking days (my wife has been getting up before 4am every day to book FP). I think we got one for Navi River. We plan to be at AK prior to rope drop and head to the line for FoP on one of our days.

    And that was what I was afraid of. Perhaps next year, after the new has worn off a bit, I'll be able to stay off property for about a third of what they're charging nowadays even for value resorts, and still get the FP+'s I want.

    Well I really hope we can get FoP at least once. Joey's neighbor has a conference in Orlando that well and we are going to meet them for the weekend on their first trip so we aren't going to wait ten hours for anything. It's highly likely, after all, that we'll be back!
