Disney to beat queues with new pass system

WALT Disney World has introduced a new queuing system at its Animal Kingdom theme park in Florida that offers visitors an alternative to waiting in line at popular attractions during peak periods.

The Fastpass system, which has already been available on a test basis for several months, allows people to effectively hold their place in linewhile they go to visit other attractions.

Customers must insert their theme-park admission ticket into a turnstile to receive a return time. They can then visit other areas of the park until the return time, when they will go to a special entrance allowing them direct access to the attraction or ride.

Animal Kingdom attractions offering the Fastpass system include Kilimanjaro Safaris, Countdown to Extinction and Kali River Rapids.

Fastpass will be introduced at selected attractions in the Magic Kingdom and Disney-MGM Studios theme parks later this summer.

Disney has also introduced two new ticket options aimed at visitors staying at hotels outside the theme-park resort area.

The Park Hopper Plus allows customers either five days at Disney theme parks and two visits to any of three water parks, or seven days at Disney and four visits to water parks.

The World Pass offers 10 days unlimited admission to the Disney parks and the three water parks. It expires 13 days after it is first used.
