|There are several strategies that people employ
while using FastPass.
lazy approach: As you wonder around the park you come upon an
attraction you wish to visit. The standby line is 2 hours long and
you see people getting FastPasses, and decide to go for it. You
get your FastPass and then look at your group and say, "Now
two-for-one approach: You send a member of your group to
get a FastPass for an attraction (ex. Splash Mountain), while
the rest of your group heads to Space Mountain to get in line.
Your other member joins you in line at Space Mountain with your
FastPasses. You wait and go on Space Mountain together, then
all walk over an use your FastPasses to go on Splash Mountain.
You get to go on two rides with the wait time of one.
Geek's approach: This is a much different approach than the
Geek uses at WDW, mostly because at WDW the Geek gets a week or
two every couple years, where as with Disneyland I get to go about
every three weeks or so. What I usually end up doing is getting
a fastpass for an attraction and then either wander around the park
and watch some entertainment, or go see a classic attraction that
usually has a small line (like the Tiki Room, Great Moments with
Mr. Lincoln, or even just ride the train
around the park.
