I can't say enough good things about these parks and the people of Japan. Absolutely wonderful country. If the parks introduced the fast passes on the app like Disney World it would be complete perfection and it's pretty damn close to perfect even without that.
^ Honestly, I'm sure that if they offered FastPasses on the app, every attraction with Fastpasses would probably be "sold out" that day, before anyone who doesn't have a cellphone (shock I know, we don't own them), and has to get the paper ones.
And with Japan's huge local population, that doesn't even count people visiting from overseas. Which, at WDW, there is a huge number of gp from every where else in the world. In TDLR, we (from overseas countries) are not the majority gp there.
I just don't see it happening there in TDLR. IMhO.
Oh god, please no app Fastpass at TDL before I can get there. Just looking at the App right now for WDW for tomorrow at Hollywood Studios, there are no available fast passes for Aliens Swirling Saucers, TSM, Slinky, Tower or Rockin' Rollercoaster for a party of 2 all day. I would have to refresh for 30 minutes or more to find good times for those rides, and If I couldn't find Slinky my options would be 1. Arrive 70 minutes before opening and do Slinky First. 2. Wait 60-90 minutes while the park is open. 3. Keep staring at and refreshing the app tomorrow until some time that may or may not work with my plans becomes available 4. Potentially miss both fireworks shows and wait about 20-30 minutes when the park closes.
At Epcot: Frozen, Mission Space and Test Track are gone. At MK: Big Thunder, Space, Enchanted Tales, Meet Mickey, Seven Dwarves are all out. At DAK: No Pandora, Dinosaur, Kilamanjaro listed as available
MLK weekend obviously, but it's still just Friday.
At every other Disney park worldwide, I could show up at 8 or 8:30 tomorrow and get a fast-pass for anything I want, and probably get 4 other fast passes for the most popular attractions with the longest waits. I certainly have the option to keep refreshing the app and it's nice to get the fast-passes in the comfort on my chair at home, but gambling that the rides will become available is just such a grind, I'd much rather use phone time to play Pokemon Go or PlayDisney than stare at the app refreshing on every visit.
