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.

Happy Birthday America!
In our hearts, in our minds and in our actions, we work daily to uphold the principles on which this great nation was founded. Liberty: for no one can constrain or remove our belief in our government by the people, for the people and of the people. Freedom: freedom from fear, freedom from strife and freedom to continue to build a nation in which democracy, debate and truth will always reign. On this, our 226th Independence Day, the staff of INTERCOT wishes The United States of America a happy birthday, and we salute each and every American who fights to uphold those ideals which we hold so dear.
