markie_farkie: I would gladly pay $300 to have the following people perma-banned from any public setting:1. People who congregate in groups in the MIDDLE of a farking walkway, full-well knowing they are blocking traffic.2. People who STOP AT THE TOP of a farking escalator, staring off in to space, oblivious to the fact that there are uncontrolled masses of people behind them that can't reverse course.3. People who, after standing in line for 15 minutes at a concession stand, with all that time available to review the menus posted every 6 inches, get to the front of the line and then take 10 more minutes to figure out what the fark they want to order.4. People who have no contextual awareness of their surroundings, and wander aimlessly, 2 feet in front of you, stopping randomly every 3 feet, and somehow managing to anticipate your every evasive move to get around their stupid farking asses...
ChaoticLimbs: If the park does this, I don't go. This is because when they pay the park this extra thing, the park is selling my place in line, which I paid for, without compensating me for the fact that I have to wait. Selling cuts is NOT cool.It's one thing for the rich to be able to pay for things I can't- and quite another for them to be able to take from me without my permission based on their wealth.

doglover: YES!Assume my time is worth $25 dollars an hour, thus every hour I'm waiting in line is -$25.The average wait in Tokyo Disney is 2 hours in the summer.This means that a full day at Disneyland in the busy season each 2 hour line costs me about $50 in lost productivity just waiting to get to ther ride.Now, let's talk utility. I'd pay $25 to do something fun for two hours that's not waiting in line. Be it a movie, a bar tab, or a few rounds of bowling. So the 2 hour line is costing me an aditional $50 in lost utility.So each two hour line costs me $100 in loss to wait for. Thus if I ride three rides(or skip six hours' waiting) in a day, the fast past pays for itself. So if you hit many rides, totally worth it.
groppet: Nope. It sucks wait in line ya lazy farks.I hate being around lots of people when they are crammed into parks ahole to bellybutton, so I learned just go on the off season or during a weekday. We took a Disney trip in the 90s and the lines there seemed to move pretty quick, dunno if that is the case anymore.
farkeruk: "Productive" ain't exactly the right word. Queueing up for rides isn't nourishing your soul or giving you pleasure or feeding your bank balance. It is wasting time.
Sid_6.7: It isn't $300, it's $219 more than you'd normally pay.And it's probably an awesome deal for couples without kids to pay for.
miss diminutive: kingdd: I'm actually in line at the DMV right now. I'd pay $150 just to get to the front if this line.Brace yourself for a long ride, it's a weekday.
