Disney Upgrades Fast Pass
In response to guest feedback, Disney says its Fast Pass computer has been
upgraded so that it can now issue a second ticket within 45 minutes of the
first one depending on guest demand. It is now possible for a guest to be
issued two Fast Pass Tickets within the space of an hour and attend both
rides within that timeframe. Apparently, processing power prevented the
previous system from keeping track of what tickets had been already used.

World Resort. Designed as the ultimate place for kids to play, Once Upon A
Toy officially opens its doors Aug. 1, at Downtown Disney Marketplace.
Reopens a Day After Closing
A small fire in an electrical substation near the Test Track building caused
Epcot to loose power and close for only the third time in it's 20 year
history. The cause of the fires is still under investigation. Diane Ledder,
Spokeswoman for the Walt Disney World Resort said the fire which occurred
while maintenance personnel were working on a "switching gear" caused no
injuries or major structural damage.
A small fire Wednesday forced officials to close Walt Disney World's Epcot
theme park to tourists, according to Local 6 News and apparently, the park
remains closed this morning as well. Reports state that flames were
reported at an electrical distribution center at about 3:30 a.m. Walt Disney
World spokeswoman Diane Ledder said that a small fire in a transformer
apparently cut electricity to several areas of the resort.
