Disneyland Fast Pass for Dummies

Overview

Quote:
Before we headed up to Big Bear Lake and a week of relaxing, we decided to burn what energy we had on a day at Disneyland. We saw it all and never stood in a long line, thanks to FAST PASS.Quick Tips: For the first time we flew into John Wayne airport (Orange County). It's usually more expensive to fly there than LAX or Ontario, but this time it was a little cheaper. And it was great. Within 20 minutes of landing, we had our bags, got our rental car, and were on our way.

Why in the world would you stand in line for 2 freakin' hours to ride Splash Mountain, when you can get a Fast Pass ticket, enjoy other stuff at the Park, come back anytime in your one hour window, and get on the ride with a wait of 5 minutes or less? Do you hate your kids/husband/wife? Do you enjoy shuffling along with strangers who keep bumping you while you sweat in the hot sun and your kids have to go to the bathroom? Are you nuts?...Read More
