We decided that it was time to heavily retest Line Hacks (even though we do this multiple times per year) and do a FastPass Challenge to see how many FastPasses we could get in an eight-hour touring day at the Magic Kingdom. And, these things are always fun for me.

We ended up with 20 FastPasses! The video is below.

There were some rules to make it legit though, which were:

1. Ride every ride operating that has FastPass at least once, and try to get the headliners twice. 

Peter Pan’s Flight and the Tomorrowland Speedway were the only rides we would also have typically grabbed a FP for.

2. Complete this challenge on a busy day, not a slow day – to show people that it can work great any time of year (except Christmas week!)

It was a crowd level of 8 out of 10 per TouringPlan’s measurements, and it indeed was quite the busy day at the Magic Kingdom.

3. Not use FastPass on “easy” attractions

This would not be that impressive if we just used multiple FastPasses for things like Mickey’s PhilarMagic or Monster’s Laugh Floor. So we didn’t do that. 🙂

4. Minimize walking as much as possible

We always aim to have a more relaxing day using Line Hacks, and not run around or be rushed. In the afternoon, we did run into problems with both Splash Mountain and Space Mountain shutting down for long periods of time and had to do some walking. We like to think we could have got 25 FastPasses otherwise 😉

5. Not rush, and have fun!

Disney is a vacation, and it needs to be fun. So again, no rushing around or crazy planning. We used a pretty normal walking pace throughout the day (although Amy’s a New Yorker and her normal is quite fast). We arrived at the park at 9 am, got some Starbucks, and hit our first ride at 9:30 am. We took a lunch break and snack break in the middle of the day, and then finished our last ride before our 7 pm dinner.
