I hope Disney brings the hammer down!

Nobody likes waiting in lines, especially when you're at the theme park.

But I came to the realization long ago that long lines are just a part of the whole theme park experience. They go together "like ramma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong." There's no getting around it. Or at least that's what I thought until recently.

I was reading an article on Jim Hill Media about how Disney is experimenting with ways to stop guests from creating and using counterfeit FastPasses on attractions at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

Are you kidding me? Are there really people out there who open up their copy of Photoshop and spend time creating fake FastPasses? Even worse, are there actually people who create these fake tickets and then sell them online?

Apparently so! From what I read, the parks deal with hundreds of counterfeit FastPasses a day. Unbelievable!

I'm not naive enough to believe that the world is a fair place. There are jerk-offs around every corner looking to rip people off. But what this shows is that there are people out there who have a fundamental lack of respect for everyone around them.

Yeah I know, they're not actually stealing anything. But you'd be mad if someone forcibly cut in front of you while you were waiting for your favorite ride, right? That's what's happening here! What's worse, is that it throws off the whole carefully calibrated FastPass system that supposedly keeps the attractions running at full capacity.

That's why I hope that Disney brings down the hammer on these fools. They shouldn't just take the fake FastPasses away, they should kick their counterfeiting asses out of the park and ban them from the friggin' property.

While they're at it, Donald Duck should kick 'em in the balls too!

Nothing pisses me off more than someone taking advantage by cheating.

What do you think? Talk about this travesty in the Forums.
