It was recently revealed that select off property hotels in the Disney Springs area would now have the ability to book FastPasses at 60 days out. This is something that seemed to be coming for quite some time, but it finally happened.

Now, reports claim that guests who book club-level rooms at Walt Disney World Resort hotels will the ability to purchase additional FastPasses. According to Chip Skambis of WFTV, this is Disney’s effort to expand premium services at a surcharge with hopes of convincing others to book higher level rooms.

While this is not yet set in stone or confirmed by Disney, Skambis states that he has received this information from a source who believes it to be true.

Not only has Skambis’ source come through with this information to start with, but they also revealed the possible price these additional FastPasses will cost.

As Skambis stated, Disney officials did not return a request for comment, but that is not unusual. If this is something that is truly in the works, Disney isn’t going to comment on the new procedure until they are ready to officially announce it to the public.

For now, this needs to be taken as speculation, as nothing has been confirmed by Disney at all. Still, with the number of details that Skambis has received, it doesn’t seem like something that came out of nowhere.
