Beginning the week of October 23, 2011, Magic Kingdom will test offering FASTPASS tickets for a restricted-access viewing area for the afternoon Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade. The test will run for approximately one month.

Due to the limited size of the test’s viewing area (reportedly in the Castle Forecourt), few details are being shared regarding how guests will obtain these parade FASTPASS tickets. Word on the street is that there will be a “random selection” of guests.

If further details are revealed, we’ll be sure to share them!

  • Just hoping this doesn’t morph into something like the world of color fast pass system where if you don’t get one early you can’t find a spot to watch. Considering the size of the viewing area that shouldn’t happen in WDW.

  • I’m not really sure why this is necessary. I’ve always been able to get a good spot for the 3:00 parade about 15 mins before it starts, even on very busy days.

    At first, I thought this sounded good, but the more I think about it, the less I like it. I think that the people who are willing to give up an hour (or more) of touring time in order to secure a good view of the parades deserve those views. However, it bugs the crap out of me that this is even necessary. Because I absolutely will not wait that long for a parade spot, FP is enticing, but due to the popularity of the parades, I foresee a Toy Story Mania mania ensuing at rope drop each day. Also, parade times are great times to ride some otherwise too crowded attractions and if “the waiters” have FP, the window for this brief alleviation of crowds will be even briefer.
