Answer to the question: Can anyone buy a FastPass at Walt Disney World?

I found this interesting question on Quora.com: Can anyone buy a FastPass at Walt Disney World?

Although, buying and selling of FastPass+ has happened in the past, Disney has done a good job toward preventing this from happening.

I find it interesting that the question asks, “Can” someone buy FastPass’s. My gut reaction is, “No!” But that’s not entirely true. One could purchase a VIP Tour and, in essence, would be buying FastPass’s.

On the Disney World website, The Ultimate Day of Thrills VIP Tour includes a 7-hour tour with lunch and, “…expedited access to top attractions at Walt Disney World Resort.”

Without really saying it, Disney is selling you FastPass’s (i.e. expedited access to attractions). There’s even variations on the VIP Tours. For example, the newest one is a 4-hour tour of Animal Kingdom that includes a walk on to both of the Pandora attractions, the Safari, Expedition Everest and more!

Of course, it’s not cheap. The 7-hour tour (which you can use to take you anywhere you want to go) costs $300/person. The 4-hour DAK tour will set you back $265/person. That’s definitely something to consider if you’re interested in buying some FastPass’s for your next trip.

 

What do you think? Would you take a tour for the strict reason for paying to bypass lines at Walt Disney World?
