    Beginning in Tomorrowland, Disney's now testing paperless fastpass distributions in a centralized location; with 3 attractions testing the new system.



    If this sounds familar, then you will recall that Shanghai Disneyland actually does this for area-by-areas.

    I like the bridge connecting the parking garage to the walking path to Downtown Disney/Disneyland. Seems like a nice walk. My only complaint, and it's really nothing, is that they could have made a "natural" bridge like Universal has from Cabana Bay to the walkway to Universal Studios/IOS.

    Without paper reminders a lot of people will forget their fast pass return times.

    These days everyone has s smart phone. They should be using max pass. Or use phone to keep track of next fp time. Its not rocket science.

    ^You'd be shocked how many people do not have a smart phone.

    Or don’t have the DL app. Or don’t want to use the smart phone. Or it’s not charged. Or they can’t connect to a signal. Or....

    Also I go to theme parks to get off my phone. I hope most experiences in the future at any major theme park don't require your phone to be your main entry or ticket scan. That'd get tiring and just simply annoying.

    They should do like the stupid plastic straw ban in CA and provide a paper FP if the person requests one in case they don't have or want to use the app as a reminder.

    You might not need MaxPass anymore with these one location fastpass systems. It's still worth it if your a park hopper and want to get FP for rides at the other park.

    While I think those centralized FP distribution for various lands will be an improvement, for me MaxPass still has the edge of reserving anywhere...including the FP line of the attraction you just entered. Same goes for the shorter time window wait, the unlimited photopass downloads etc.

    As I've said, the centralized FP centers will be nice, but it's still something you have to physically trek to and wait in line for. It's an aspect which can take up time, and MP eliminates ALL of that.
