This Disney World Sign Looks a LITTLE Different…

When Walt Disney World reopened its theme parks to the public back in mid-July 2020, several changes were implemented — one of them being the elimination of FastPass+. It was indicated that this would be a temporary suspension of FastPass+ for the time being due to the pandemic. But still, several months after the theme parks first reopened last summer, the service has not yet returned.

At this time, the official Disney World website states the following regarding FastPass+:

FastPass+ Selections

As a result of the COVID-19 impact on operations, the FastPass+ service is suspended for the time being. FastPass+ service is not offered with the purchase of tickets or annual passes. We will share future updates at a later date.

Currently, Disney has not stated when FastPass+ will return to the theme parks; however, on a recent visit to Magic Kingdom, park-goer Mitchell Lancaster noticed that the FastPass+ sign at Space Mountain looked a bit different.

In fact, the FastPass+ wording has been completely removed from the sign! This queue sign used to read “FastPass+ Entrance” in large white lettering (which you can see in the photo above), but now, the sign is completely blank (which you can see in the photo below):

At the time of publication, Disney World has not given any indication that FastPass+ is gone for good, and as mentioned the official Walt Disney World website still notes the service is suspended.

This Space Mountain sign could be an indication that Disney has plans to change the FastPass+ for Space Mountain (or in general) in some way, but it also could just be a regular maintenance job that Disney World workers could be performing. Perhaps they are even planning to utilize the FastPass+ queue space for the regular standby attraction queue. Or, it’s possible that they are performing maintenance on the FastPass+ queue sign in order to get it in tip-top shape before the service returns to the Disney World theme parks. However, all of this is speculation, and for now we just know some Guests may be a bit befuddled at the current signage!

Stay tuned to Inside the Magic for updated information regarding FastPass+ and Disney World.

Over in California, Disneyland also has a FASTPASS system, which will be temporarily suspended as well once the theme parks reopen to Guests on the West Coast.
