One Disney Park has brought back a complimentary “Fast Pass” equivalent for its 40th Anniversary celebration.

One of the biggest complaints that Guests have had with the Walt Disney Company is their removal of the complimentary Fast Pass system at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort and the institution of its replacement, the pricey Genie+, Lightning Lane, and Individual Lightning Lane. Guests were frustrated that they had to switch from a free service that allowed them a shorter wait to their favorite attraction or ride.

Whether its because Disney heard this complaint, or because it had always been planned, beginning July 26, Disney has brought back a FastPass reminiscent offering for Guests at one Disney Park.
