A FASTPASS Runner is the person in your group who volunteers to get FASTPASSes for the entire group for an upcoming attraction. The rest of the group saves a bit of walking, and it cuts down on the size of the crowd around FASTPASS machines.
A new FASTPASS Runner checkbox is available in our computer-optimized touring plans, located just above the walking and waiting preferences on the optimization screen. Select this box if you want the optimizer to use a runner when obtaining FASTPASSes; leave the box blank if you don’t want to use a runner.
When the FASTPASS Runner option is enabled, the touring plan’s walking, waiting, and ride times will not include the runner’s effort to obtain FASTPASSes. For example, if it takes the runner 10 minutes to walk to Splash Mountain, get FASTPASSes, and meet the group back in Fantasyland, those 10 minutes will not count against the touring plan’s overall time.
The optimized touring plan guarantees that the FASTPASS runner will meet up with the rest of the group in time for everyone to experience the next step together in the touring plan. And if the group gets to the next step before the runner, the touring plan will indicate how much free time the group has before the runner arrives. The group can use this time to shop, snack or rest before continuing with the touring plan.
