We announced an exciting first for us this week: the opportunity to nail down a time to meet Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World Resort using FASTPASS. That’s right, no waiting in the standby queue. Beginning this spring, you’ll get a FASTPASS specifying a one-hour window when you can return to see Mickey for hugs, photos and autographs at his new home, Town Square Theater.
