Anna and Elsa meet and greet offering another “TEST”

Anna and Elsa meet and greet offering another “TEST”

Disney World is set to offer yet another test concerning the Anna and Elsa meet and greet at the Magic Kingdom.  They previously made guests show up early in the morning, with no warning, and pick up a paper return card.  Well, that test has long passed and Disney has decided to confuse their guests again from September 22-25.  It relates to those who were hoping to use the Stand by queue, not those with pre-arranged Fastpass+.

The Cast Members have been told to allow the queue to fill to an estimated 60 minute wait, then guests wishing to join the Stand by line, will be directed to the Philharmagic Fastpass+ kiosk or they are told they can use their My Disney Experience app to schedule a Fastpass+ for a time later in the day.  Once the additional “day of” Fastpasses are gone, you will not be allowed to meet Anna and Elsa.  These additional Fastpasses will only be released at rope drop on the mornings of September 22-25.

This seems even more confusing to me because the cards were told to go to the stand by line, but are all the Fastpass+ people now joining a single FP+ line, thereby congesting the line further?  I’ll head over in the morning and see what is actually going on with the continuing saga of Frozen confusing tests.

I can only imagine, if they did have Anna and Elsa at MK, and EPCOT, and HS, my 4 year old would see them at one place, and then if he saw them somewhere else, he would get suspicious, and it would probably ruin the magic, and make him doubt all of the characters. He already questions Santa, I am glad he is very excited to meet Anna and Elsa and Mickey etc.

Well, if your son can visit all four parks, why can't the characters? That's how I would explain it, because the fab five among many others are at multiple parks....

I was not aware that they did away with the testing of the paper vouchers and does anyone know if that was even successful? If so, why change it? So what I'm wanting to find out now is in regards to the paper vouchers being handed out at Be Our Guest. Are they still doing that for lunch?

They make people get paper vouchers at Disneyland, so I guess they liked it for that park.

Good Grief Disney what the heck ??? Kenny really looking forward to hearing your personal experience with this. There used to be a soap opera on TV called " As the World Turns " WDW certainly is a drama filled cliff hanger lately with all the things thrown at their customers ( formerly known as " guests " ) Don't know how anyone that doesn't know about you can deal with it all. Thanks again !

We had a fastpass+ booked for anna and elsa meet and greet 68 days ago (8 days into our onsite trip, the first available day for us at the time) that we used last night in this new trial system. Basically it means there are no fastpasses anymore. It took us an hour and 10 minutes from joining the fastpass line to getting to see them. It was well over subscribed and I was furious that disney did this change with no warning to guests who had prebooked fastpasses months ago to expect over an hours wait instead of the expected 10-15 minute wait a fastpass would normally take. We missed wishes on our final MK night because of this. Horrible system. Every cast member I spoke to also said they didn't like this trial system that they were informed about only a day or two ago.

This is only a 4 day test as mentioned in the post.

First of all, I just wanted to give a big THANK YOU to Kenny for providing all of the tips and schedules over the years. You have made our last 5 trips to Disney the best they could be! Unfortunately all of the changes DisneyWorld is making show me that they are not interested in having people like me as a customer any longer. We don't stay on site, don't do the dining plan, and plan our trips so we don't HAVE to pay for all of the up charge events to meet all the characters. So it's a cruise for us this year instead. Thank you so much for helping us to meet all of the characters we wanted (inc Anna & Elsa!) over the years - with no hassles!
