  1. It’s really upsetting that Disney hasn’t brought back fast pass. I had never had the opportunity to visit Disney until a few years ago, but since I’ve been, I’ve gotten used to the “Disney magic” that comes with spending hours of fun trying to get the perfect fast pass before you come to the parks. It’s almost like a pre-curser to the actual vacation and it feels almost empty without it and it kills me to think that the one or two times I get to go a year, I’m spending the whole time in line like a noob (haha). THE PLANNING IS HALF THE FUN DISNEY
