Disney’s Water Parks Testing Virtual Lines

Water Parks
┬ęDisney

Universal Orlando Resort is going to be doing it with Volcano Bay, so it was only a matter of time before Disney tried their hand at virtual lines. The Walt Disney World water parks, both Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon are currently testing a virtual line queuing system until April 7.

Guests who visit the water parks will be able to reserve a place in line for specific attractions and will not have to physically wait in said line. Instead, they can go ahead and do something else. When their time to ride the attraction is ready, they will then be able to do so with a minimal wait.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Guests are given a printed card with a rubber band, making the whole thing wearable. Guests are given a 15 minute time window with which to return to ride the attraction.

This test is currently taking place at Blizzard Beach on Summit Plummet, Slush Gusher, and Downhill Double Dipper and at the all-new Miss Adventure Falls attraction at Typhoon Lagoon.

This current test is not connected to FastPass+, therefore, you cannot book reserved times ahead of your vacation via the My Disney Experience app.

    Would it be accurate to describe this as “legacy fastpass with no standby line”? Or is there a subtle difference I’m missing?

    Nice! I hope the test goes well and they decide to stick with it for the summer.

    So it’s paper Fastpasses with a 15 minute window? Paper at a waterpark? I want to believe they thought about paper at a waterpark but it says “printed.”

    We were at BB yesterday and it was a laminated card attached to elastic band you wear around your wrist. They were only doing it for Summit Plummet. Worked great for us- only issue was that most people aren’t wearing watches at a water park. Also a little awkward going in between two lines of people to get to the front of the line.

    Ok but we don’t wear watches whilst in water parks, how are you supposed to know when your window opens and if you have more than one reserved how are you supposed to remember which one is when without them all written down.

      The plastic card has the time window printed on it. It was only a 15 minute window
