May Brings New Technology to the Magic Kingdom

Disney Pointers, can you believe it's already May? Almost time for summer at Walt Disney World!

Something exciting is happening today at Walt Disney World! Starting today Disney is testing a "next generation" FASTPASS system. How does it work? Guests will be given an itinerary and a card embedded with an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip. Based on this itinerary and the rides they have chosen beforehand, guests will be given time slots to return to the attraction. A swipe of the card will tell them if they have returned in their assigned window.

Guests will be chosen to participate at random during the next couple of weeks.

What does this ultimately mean for you?

Just like you plan your dining reservations 180 days in advance, you will now be planning your park itineraries prior to leaving for your trip. Everything from your transportation from the airport, your dining, and the rides you will ride will be predetermined around the time of your booking.

Sounds like a lot of planning, right? Now more than ever it is important to consult a Disney Vacation Planner like those at Glass Slipper Concierge. Glass Slipper Concierge is a Disney-specialized travel concierge service that offers meticulously-planned Disney vacations. Once this new FASTPASS system comes into play for all guests we will certainly be ready to plan every minute of your Disney vacation!

Happy May! Have a magical day!
