Fastpass attraction strategy
The best strategy for the "independent" machine
The sole remaining independent machine (World of Color) is nice and simple. Yyou can get one Fastpass (or "Showpass") without affecting any other Fastpasses you might want.
Note: All times are an example, and should not be a reflection of the time you really get on your Fastpass.
As of February 19th, 2013, the Disneyland Resort has started enforcing the end time on the FastPass, which means that you have one hour to use it. (This is a major change from the past, where Disney didn't enforce the end time). If you are a few minutes late, more than likely the Cast Member will accept it if you have a decent explanation why you were late. But if you are over 15 minutes late, more than likely you will be turned away. Also, exceptions will be made if the ride breaks down during the valid period of the FastPass, and you can use it at a later time.
So what can you have, before you've even used one of the "networked" machines? Currently, you can have one World of Color Showpass. And if you remember to pick up a new Fastpass before using one, you'll always have an current Fastpass for these attractions.
The best strategy for the "networked" machines
You can have, in most cases, one Disneyland and one DCA networked Fastpass in addition to the above standalone Fastpass. Once you get one networked Fastpass, you are not allowed another "networked" Fastpass within the same park (either DL or DCA) until one of these two events happens: * It is later than the beginning time listed on the Fastpass; or * Two hours have passed since receiving the Fastpass
* It is early in the day, and you go to get a Splash Mountain Fastpass at 9:15 a.m., the Fastpass issued to you is valid from 10:20 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. In this case, you could get your next "networked" Fastpass in Disneyland at 10:20 a.m., and that would be the time printed on the bottom of the Fastpass * But let's say it is a bit later, around 10:30 a.m., when you get a Splash Mountain Fastpass and it is instead good between 2:40 p.m. and 3:40 p.m. In this case, the next networked Disneyland Fastpass would be available to you at 12:30 p.m., two hours after the Fastpass was issued. There is one additional rule in that you would not be allowed to get another Splash Mountain Fastpass, until the window opens at 2:40 pm. At 12:30 you could get a Fastpass for Autopia, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Indiana Jones Adventure, etc.
One of the most important tricks to maximize your "networked" Fastpass usage is to get a new networked Fastpass prior to using the one you already have. Let's look at an example: * You have an Indiana Jones Adventure Fastpass that will become good at 12:35 p.m. At 12:35, you could get a Splash Fastpass (let's say it is good for 2:50 p.m. to 3:50 p.m.) and then go back to ride Indiana Jones Adventure. Then at 2:35 pm (don't forget the two-hour rule), you might pick up a Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Fastpass, before riding Splash Mountain. Continue this throughout the day.
So, at any given time a Fastpass user can theoretically possess one or two Fastpasses for each of the stand-alone Fastpass attractions plus one or two of the networked attractions in each park (depending on return times in relation to the two-hour rule).
Another thing to think about to maximize the number of rides you get into a day are the Single Rider Passes available on Indiana Jones Adventure, Splash Mountain, Radiator Springs Racers, Grizzly River Run, Soarin' Over California, California Screamin', and Goofy's Sky School. With the exception of Soarin' Over California and Radiator Springs Racers, use of single-rider lines is generally faster than Fastpass, so if you are willing to use them this will free up the list of attraction for which you will want Fastpasses.
The best strategy for using Fastpass
Rather than thinking of Fastpass as two systems (Disneyland and DCA) think of it as thrree systems (World of Color, the Disneyland networked system, and the DCA networked system) and that you can have one or two from each system at any given time. To make best use of Fastpasses, do not use a Fastpass from one of the systems (with the exception of World of Color) before attempting to get a new Fastpass from that system.…...

I was able to find a company whose headquarters is located in Fairfax, Virginia. This company is in the process of developing not one but five major initiatives. Even though all of these initiatives are currently being worked, they all have work to be done with them.

WetStone Technologies (The Company) was founded in 1997 but it did not relocate to this area until 2007. Giving the need for this type of software, the company set out to develop an intrusion detection system that would be used for not only the Government but also for the private sector.

Trip to Malaysia

...A Trip to Malaysia Travelling is a sense of adventure that excites people, and also is a big chance for us to learn about other cultures and the way people live their lives. While many tourists travel to France, England or some famous countries in Europe, fewer travel to a small country in Asia. As someone who loves to explore and enjoy new things, 3 years ago in the summer, my boyfriend and I decided to backpack to Malaysia. It was a fantastic trip and an amazing experience for us that you should definitely try it. In this country, there are three destinations that travelers should not miss: the Petronas Twin Towers, Golden Triangle area, and The Genting Highland Park. When we arrived into Kuala Lumpur, we headed straight to the Petronas Twin Towers, which are also known as the world’s tallest tower. They are an impressive icon of the capital of Malaysia that are visible from about everywhere in the city, and dominate the night sky. The Petronas Twin Towers are 1,483 feet tall, have 88 stories, and were completed in 1998. The architecture was very magnificent from the outside, especially at night, they look like ice sculptures. The most attractive architecture of the tower is that at the 41st and 42nd level, there is a skybridge connecting the two towers. The bridge is 170 meters above the ground, 58 meters long and weighs 750 tons. My boyfriend and I drove the high-speed lift that zooms up to the skybridge on the 41st floor; we walked across the skybridge to take some......

Buxton Trip

...According to the knowledge which I have possessed over the years is that the education system in United Kingdom was based on practical application of theories. Surprisingly, the Professional and Academic Skills Support (PASS) module of MBA course in Staffordshire University helped me to gain the experience of applying the acquired theoretical knowledge for the accomplishment of the assigned outdoor activities in the Buxton Residential trip. Although, the module was meant for learning from those outdoor activities to develop one’s managerial skills, I have seen it as a continuous learning process that started from my under-graduate course, where I had the opportunity to come across some theories of leadership and team management. According to Knowles (1975), “We must learn from everything we do; we must exploit every experience as a learning experience…. It is a lifelong process.” Keeping all these in mind, the PASS module has arranged its courses accordingly and thus gave us the opportunity to go through various outdoor tasks in Buxton Residential, with the help of which we can analyze and assess our personality to work accordingly in an organization. Also, the indoor task of Poster Peer Assessment did the needful in understanding what team work is in an organizational background. The purpose of writing this essay is thus what we learn from this module and accordingly how can we improve on it, so that we could fit properly in our respective career jobs in the world of......

Once I saw what my mum and my son pulled, my paper got tossed over my shoulder. The challenge now were to pick from the two options trip to the Wallowa Mountains or the trip to the Oregon coast. We ponder on what the Oregon coast and the Wallowa Mountains offered in actives, accommodations, and weather in late March. We were down to trip to the Wallowa Mountains and the Oregon coast. As we looked at these two, we noticed these were just a few of the more common spring break trips. These two place Oregon coast and the Wallowa Mountains are still far from being a like each other. Then my family was curious about other things such as accommodations and the weather in late March. The weather in Oregon can be unpredictable in late March at the Oregon coast also at the Wallowa Mountains. The weather can be sunny one moment to down pour rain. The Oregon coast often in late March can be foggy and stormy with high winds.......

Trip Report

...TRIP TO DERANGALA TEA FACTORY TRIP TO DERANGALA TEA FACTORY GROUP MEMBERS Roshan Madushantha - 3889 Dilshan Sandaruwan - 3871 Thivanka Vithanage 3730 Aisha Al- sheraim - 3729 Acknowledgement This report is based on the trip to Derangala tea estate which is situated in Akuressa. This report is made for Mr. Indrajith Aponsu who is our Microeconomics lecturer. In this report I and my group members have gone in death of the process that we learnt at the tea factory. The process that we learnt briefly and the main points, we have discussed it in detail during this report. Furthermore, we enjoyed the entire trip and I think we are really fortunate to learn about tea. To learn a subject like this is a once in a life time opportunity. This opportunity will not work to all the people. We drink tea in large scales, but we don’t realize how this is processed and graded for consumers. Though we don’t get a chance to taste the highest grade in Sri Lanka it is good that we saw how the tea is processed in a factory which is situated in the south. As we all know the highest grade is exported to all the European countries and other countries all around the world. Finally we take this opportunity to thank our instructor for taking us on this trip and also for joining with us to go on the trip. History of Sri Lankan Tea The Sri Lankan tea history goes back to 1824 where British brought the very first tea plant from China. This tea plant was planted in the Royal......

A Trip to France

...We calmed down and followed our parents around. After some time, after seeing where all the princesses lived, we came to the conclusion that Disneyland wasn’t as fun as we had imagined it would be. We saw the princess parade and a place where you could see animals like horses, chickens and rabbits. I think that was the highlight on that trip. Anyway, sometimes it doesn’t matter what you do, but who you do it with, so I would say that I was very lucky to have my sister with me. Of course my parents were to have a bit of ‘fun’ too, so they chose for our family to take a guided trip on a boat. I remember we sailed past Notre Dame. At the time I only knew the building from the Disney movie, so I think I was expecting a man jumping around on the top of the building or something. Another thing I remember was that, when the guide on the boat first mentioned Notre Dame, all the Chinese people raised and for some seconds I only noticed the sound of their cameras. My parents found them quite funny, maybe because the Chinese are known for taking pictures of everything. Pictures of things many people would consider unimportant. Suddenly the boat trip was over. I realized I had fallen asleep. I don’t think it had anything to do with me being tired; I simply believe I was extremely bored and I couldn’t find anything more exciting to do. We got off the boat and walked to the Eiffel tower. When you see the Eiffel tower in TV or in pictures, you don’t get overwhelmed by its size, like......

Trip On car journey I would like to talk about today was my visit to Mount WUYI which is located in Fujian province. Last winter vacation, my family and I decided to go to Hainan. Unfortunately, we were informed that Hainan was hit from typhoon 2 days before our departure. As the city repaired damaged, there were still powerful following storms threatening this region. Out of a choice, we canceled our trip. However, it was not often the case that my family and I could get time together to have a holiday trip. In order to fully enjoy our vacation as we planned, we changed our destination to WUYI city. Due to the sudden change, we failed to buy train tickets and had to drive there on our own. It turned out that visiting places like Mount WUYI is perfect for self-driving. It was estimated as a 3-hour driving so we rented a SUV and switched drivers on the way. Each of us were responsible for a part of the highway, and whenever we saw something fascinating, we just pulled over the car to have a closer look at it. I guess those are the merits of renting a car and going on a trip with family. Mount WUYI, a very popular scenic area in China is famous for the natural conservation of numerous ancient plant species and wildlife. The popular activities there include hiking and drifting. The first day we rode a raft down the streams. The raft we took was tied by bamboo, and there were two men using long poles to steer the craft down the water. When drifting smoothly on the......

Disney Trip

...Where Dreams Came True The 3000 Festival Disney was an action packed adventure full of music, performance, roller coasters, and Mickey Mouse. The trip could not have been better planned and executed by Mr. Band Teacher and our tireless chaperones: Doug, Amy, Nate and Laura , Terri Dona , Don and Renee l, Holly, and Dave and Lorri . Best of all, the students managed to follow the rules and have the time of their lives. We began our journey with performance Friday, where we not only toured Disney’s Hollywood studios, but performed our concert Music and Marching music as well. Our afternoon concert performance in regal black concert attire took place within an extravagant Disney performance hall. After the 50+ performers of the wind ensemble and symphonic band played, an upbeat professor spoke with us about our performance in a short clinic. What an indescribable feeling? Later that same evening, the band dressed in their favorite uniforms marched through Disney Hollywood studios! As we marched past the giant blue Wizard Mickey Hat, massive spot lights hit the Marching Band. This march was a great moment for the entire band, a fantastic final march for this year’s graduating members. The following days Saturday, Sunday, and Monday were full of Disney parks, and band members collectively stormed every attraction throughout the Magic Kingdom, Typhoon Lagoon, and Animal Kingdom. Sunday evening, however, was quite Blue. After a sumptuous, pleasant dinner at Bubba Gump’s,...

Slip or Trip?

...Brandon Lamarre 6/17/2016 English Composition and Rhetoric Slip or trip? Arthur Volupides, the husband of Queenie Volupides, was murdered by his wife, Queenie, that night or early the next morning. The reasons for this claim are many, as all of the evidence is pointing towards a very guilty Ms. Volupides. For this reason, I don’t believe that the wife is telling the truth. As the testimony goes, Mr. Arthur Volupides and his wife, Queenie Volupides, had gotten into an argument that night, just as Mrs. Volupides was leaving to go to a country club where a party was being held. After having a few drinks, Queenie returned home shortly before one o’clock in the morning. She invited her friends to come over for one last drink, but returned ten minutes before they arrived at her house. When they showed up, Queenie explained that Arthur had fallen down the stairs and died, with his glass still in his hand. The autopsy shows that Arthur died by a head wound and was drunk. There are many aspects of this story that simply don’t match the picture. To begin with, let’s look at how she answered the door. She exclaimed, “Something terrible has happened. Oh my God-what should I do”. This sounds too scripted to be a real reaction, especially when she didn’t shed a tear the whole time. As a rule, when your husband or a loved one dies, you call the cops immediately and you’re going to be in a very emotional state. Queenie didn’t show signs of either of those two things, as...

A Trip to Dubai

...through one of its many exits by accident but luckily you always have the world’s tallest building to help you get your bearings! We went on a number of trips outside the hotel including a trip to “Ski Dubai”. If you had told me ten years ago that I would be skiing in Dubai I would have said that something drastic had happened to the climate. Instead they have built the world’s largest indoor ski centre which has real snow and even a working chairlift! I spent a whole afternoon skiing down the slopes with my dad while my mom sat on the chairlift and enjoyed hot chocolate in the restaurant halfway down the slope. At the bottom of the slope was an area for children where they can play amongst snow figures and have the mandatory snowball fights! During our stay we also travelled to the Atlantis Palm, Dubai. This is an ultra-modern hotel based on the end of the manmade Palm Island. To give you some idea of the scale of the island it took us 15 minutes to drive from one end to the other.... and the traffic was pretty clear! At the Atlantis we saw their huge indoor fish tank which was host to innumerable fish, rays and sharks. Some of the suites have walls of glass up against the tank and so you can get a nice shock when you wake up in the morning! Other places that we visited and enjoyed were the local markets and a boat trip on Dubai creek. We also had a fantastic lunch at Jumeirah Beach hotel which is just opposite the world’s only 7 star hotel the Burj Al Arab. We were......
