Since the parks reopened last year, there have been quite a few changes.
To name just a few, Annual Pass sales have been suspended and many locations around property remain closed (although several are reopening!). And of course, FastPass+ is still temporarily unavailable.
FastPass+ was suspended with the parks’ reopening to utilize “additional queue space to manage capacity and maintain physical distancing.” Since then, we haven’t heard word on when it could return! However, Disney has removed the feature from the My Disney Experience app altogether and removed FastPass+ signs from various rides.
So…will FastPass+ return sometime in 2021? Well, there’s no way to know for SURE until Disney makes some kind of announcement themselves. But we were curious what you, our DFB readers, were thinking…so we asked you on our Instagram! And here’s what YOU said when asked if FastPass+ would return in 2021.
The results are split prettyyy evenly, but a small majority of you think that no, FastPass+ will NOT be back in 2021. After all, we’ll have to see quite a few changes to the parks (like shifts in social distancing guidelines — which Disney just announced are starting in select locations — and maybe even increased capacity) before it could return.
There’s also the question of if FastPass+ will return at all. With the use of the virtual queue system and the new Disney Genie planning app on the horizon, some of our readers thought that FastPass+ could be eliminated altogether. Of course, Disney hasn’t provided enough information to make an for us to comment on whether or not this will be the case.
In defense of FastPass+ returning sometime this year, we HAVE seen a slow shift back to normal in the parks. This includes reopenings, the elimination of temperature checks, social distancing changes, and changes to the mask policy. Maybe this is a sign that FastPass+ could be back sooner rather than later, too.
While we can’t know for certain what’s goin’ on with FastPass+, you can bet we’ll keep ya posted every step of the way. Stay tuned to DFB (and keep an eye on our Instagram for more fun polls!).
