New fastpass system at AK

Parks, resorts, dining, attractions, vacations

Saw this on allears.net this morning.  Hope they do this!  It doesn't
say if you can get FPs for more than one attraction at a time though.


Last week, Disney's Animal Kingdom began testing a new, centralized
method of issuing FastPasses. During this test, you can get FastPasses
for several popular attractions at one location -- the FastPass
machines near It's Tough to Be a Bug, which is located near the Tree
of Life in the center of the theme park. FastPasses are available at
this single location for the park's most popular rides: Expedition
Everest, Dinosaur, and Kilimanjaro Safaris.

While I like the idea from a conceptual standpoint - this is going to 
create a perpetually crowded area.  It'll choke the bridges to the ToL.  
I hate to think about where they'd put such a thing in the other parks.

One of the good things about keeping the machines in their current, 
distributed places is that it forces people to move about the park.  If 
you create such a centralized draw, you're going to see an uptick in the 
placement of kiosks for other stuff... giftshop movement, etc.

I would think a better idea would be that EVERY FP machine, wherever 
located in a park, can distribute FPs for EVERY attraction in that 
park... maybe a push-button system?  That way, you accomplish the same 
goal, but people won't head to one certain location.

I dunno, though.  I'm not a capacity/space planner.  :)
