    $50/day seems steep for just 3 of them, in addition to the 3 days of a club level stay. I think I would be surprised if this turns out to be true.

    It would only be worth it if you could also overlap them. My strategy is to rope drop and not have a FP booked until about 2 hours into the day. Then, as soon as I use the last one, I book another one while in line, and repeat until nearly the end of the day. Well, as I type this it doesn't seem that bad. Just pricey.

    They are going to find a way to charge for them. Been in the plans all along. This could just be the start.

    I hope if they do eventually charge for them that they won't be at those prices! Yikes!

    I can't see this being successful. The price is just to steep for what you are getting.

    Ask yourself: if money wasn't an issue and you had the option of walking up to a ride and paying $17 per person to go to the front of the line, would you?

    The express pass at Universal would be a steal compared to this.

    $50 per person per day? I wonder if you HAVE to purchase this option for length of stay like the dining plan.

    I am personally not at all angry or worried about the impact this will have. It is so outrageously priced.

    I am angry still at the 30 day for pass holders.

    I am worried about what next for the future of the already broken fast pass system.

    if there are no limits and I could use it for Flight of Passage and both Star Wars rides when they open - then yes, it would be worth $17 to me vs waiting 4 hours

    This may or may not work. But they are looking for ways to charge for more fast passes in general. Have been all along. I just wonder if they were to allow the purchased fast passes to be used on tier one attractions, just how many tier one passes will be left for the rest of us?

    For one ride during a vacation. Maybe. $50 per person per day. Not a chance. And it’s not the money. I don’t like feeling like a fool being parted from my money.

    Not for me. But I also wouldn't wait for 4 hours in line either.

    I still haven't been on Toy Story because I haven't been able to get a FP and won't wait in an hour+ long line.

    If its $50/pp, thats a little crazy.

    But how much was that tour of Pandora? Like $200?

    I could see this test bringing the price closer to $30 per day per person when it inevitably rolls out property wide..(well, the ones with CL).

    Will it ever go to the masses like that? They should just go the Express route and be done with it. (Not advocating it, but seems less complicated from their end).

    Burns me up. you let Disney Springs resorts get fast passes at the same time as on property, and then you turn around and sell more to club level. It's already hard to get fast passes for some things, this is going to make it even harder.

    Really makes me mad.

    I could see this going the route of park hopping and ticket expiration.

    Back in the day, all park tickets were good forever and all were hoppers. Then they re-configured prices to make hopping and expiration optional. I could see a park ticket being priced for day-of only one-at-a-time FP access, and other higher priced tickets offering varied features, with options for the number of days in advance you can book and/or the number of FP reservations you can hold at once.

    I'm thinking that is part of the plan. Make fast passes harder to get first.

    If the extra 3 Fast Passes can be used on Tier 1 rides and are anytime passes, then the $50 may be worth it when Star Wars land opens.

    It’s cheaper then a private tour which pretty much gives you unlimited FP for a day.... so I am going to go with plenty of people would pay it.

    That is what I am thinking it might be. This could get ugly.

    If money were NO issue....absolutely I'd pay for this! Unfortunately, that is not my reality. Especially as a family of 5....
