Orlando, FL -- Disney's FASTPASS, the revolutionary, computerized virtual queuing system that's winning over guests -- and winning awards -- is being added to two more Walt Disney World attractions soon, with two more before the holidays.
In late August, "Jim Henson's Muppet Vision 3-D," the interactive, 3-D adventure at the Disney-MGM Studios starring the lovable Muppets, will debut with Disney's FASTPASS. Then, in mid-October, guests visiting the Grim
Grinning Ghosts at The Haunted Mansion in the Magic Kingdom will be able to take advantage of the free and timesaving technology.
Since its debut last summer, guests have raved about the time they saved when using Disney's FASTPASS. Just this month, the Florida Engineering Society honored FASTPASS for its ingenuity and innovation by bestowing it the 2000 Governor's New Product Award.
In addition to "Jim Henson's Muppet Vision 3-D" and The Haunted Mansion, Disney's FASTPASS is scheduled to debut on two more Walt Disney World attractions by the end of 2000. That will bring the number of FASTPASS attractions to 19 across all four Walt Disney World theme parks.
Currently, Disney's FASTPASS is offered on the following attractions:
MAGIC KINGDOM ATTRACTIONS
Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Jungle Cruise, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
