Have you ever had trouble finding the FastPass+ touch point inside very dark queue areas? If you have a good eyesight, that might not be a problem, but even then, going from an area with bright lights to almost complete darkness may make things difficult. For this reason (and in response to Cast and Guest feedback), a constant light sequence is being added to FastPass+ merge points in locations where the touch point is difficult to see due to low light conditions.

This new light sequence has been tested at The Seas with Nemo and Friends, and feedback has been positive. Effective October 2, 2014, the new sequence will be in place at the following attractions (attractions/shows/meet-and-greets with an asterisk (*) designate location that really needed this change):

Magic Kingdom Park
  • Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid*
  • Pirates of the Caribbean*
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train*
  • Splash Mountain*
  • Space Mountain*
  • Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
  • Mickey's PhilharMagic
  • Princess Fairytale Hall – Blue
  • Princess Fairytale Hall  Pink

We personally saw this new light sequence being tested at The Seas, and we have to say that it is a nice addition, which should contribute in speeding up the FastPass+ redemption process.

Could you please upload a video of the light sequence next time you're there? I'm kinda lost as to what this will do.

Imagine this is the touch point ()

White lights illuminate in sequence from the top to bottom and then back up to the top and repeat. This illuminates the edges of the circle so you know where to touch your card/band. It's a fluid motion and looks pretty cool.
