WDW: FastPass+ Cheaters!

Its crazy to think there are cheaters at WDW when it comes to the FP+ system because its Disney, but then again I’m not shocked about this either. In this post ill be talking about the “in-park validation” along with consequences if you are caught cheating and the third party guided tours.

11813298_958351714216614_4040428913830536595_n.jpg

The “in-park validation” means validation of the park admission ticket. Until just recently there has been a loophole with the FP+ systems kiosk. The loophole with the FP+ system kiosk allowed bookings with expired tickets or by using a second ticket on their account to book another set of FP+ for the day. Basically tickets that were not used to for park admission could get you a valid FP+ reservation. Similar loopholes were found with the cast member passes…where 3+ guest passes which allows friends and family entry to the parks with limited restriction on the FP+ booking without redeeming admission.

marceline-tour_998The third party guest tours where people find and book tours though the numerous Disney fan sited, craigslist and more. The tours guarantee FP+ usage for all the attractions for their paying clients. What this means that the employees of these third party tours are at the parks during rope drop with handfuls of expired tickets and cards to book all the major attractions at the kiosks for their clienteles.

fastpassplusThis becomes a problem to the thousands of guests who are playing by the rules and paying admission for that day and now can’t find anything they want to do available during their stay. So Disney has decided to do is the in-park validation, which will check to endure that guests are using an active ticket for admission before redeeming a FP+. The consequences if guests are caught cheating, a cast member can deny entry, ad if you are caught multiple attempts you will be locked out of the MyDisneyExperience accounts so you can’t utilize the FP+ booking option. If the behavior was deemed non-abusove guest relations will be able to unlock the account.

 

 

Unknown-1The situation reminds me with the whole thing about the Disability passes when it was a thing to abuse them and now they are impossible to get to the point of non existence. I think what Disney is doing is pretty fair in my opinion because they could take it to a bigger extreme and band you from the park but they’re not. What are your thoughts on this topic? Is it fair? or no? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

The Haunted Mansion!

The Haunted Mansion opened at the Disneyland Resort on August 9, 1969 but has been in development since 1958.  The outside of the attraction was completed six years before it opened. In the ballroom you can see the Organ from the 1954 Live-Action film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Eleanor Audley is the voice of Madame Leota, she is also the voice of Maleficent and Lady Tremaine. On the ride you can also find 999 happy haunts, but the newest one is The Hat Box Ghost which was actually there when the ride first opened. Unfortunately due to technical problems he was quickly removed from the ride and then found his way beck home for the Disneyland Resorts 60th anniversary in 2015.

Since 2001 its been Jack Skelingtons tradition to take over the attraction not just for the Halloween season but for the Christmas season as well. Buddy Baker was the master mind behind the song “Grim Grinning Ghost” he also wrote the music for the stuffed with fluff Winnie The Pooh. Someone personally purchased a tombstone inside the Haunted Mansion in 2004, they paid $37,400.
