I cant wait till all attractions are required Fast Pass admissions. an outage would cause the chaos this system deserves.

I took screen shots of all of our fast passes & dining reservations that were in the app just in case it went down. It was a good thing too because the app did have issues twice while we were there last fall. Cast members appreciated it & honored them. The magic bands were great too.

Also always print a paper copy of all your fastpasses

We were there and although you could not check on the app, each attraction were able to check the next fastpass on your band. This ensured you at least knew where you should be next. Upon completing the ride then you could check your next one. The staff coped well and we didnt see any issues with guests or staff. As usual Disney coped well with the glitch and it was back up by late afternoon.

Well said!

Technology has spoiled us in so many ways!! This is such a well written article. I feel Disney is THE leader in family entertainment and is amazing to have quick contingency plans and well-trained cast members .

We all lived without fast pass as kids and we loved Disney enough to bring our children . So we adapt if it goes down again . Besides the worst day you could have at Disney parks is still 10x better than the best day at work
