I just wanted to thank everyone for sharing and supporting our first April Fool’s Day article last week here at Theme Park University. While most people got the joke, we did get a few “bites,” so I figured I would share with you the clues that were dropped throughout the article to give the readers an idea that this was total bunk.
First of all, the date the article was published on should have been a tip off.
The very idea of Carousel of Progress needing a FastPass is absurd. Sure, Disney has handed out “bonus” FastPasses for attractions that are underutilized for quite some time during peak seasons, but adding them to the list of options is crazy, but just believable enough.
Tom Williams is actually the CEO for Universal Parks and Resorts and has for many years. He is not affiliated with Disney in the slightest. Finally, I literally spelled out April Fools in the article. No, seriously… starting with the first letter of each paragraph at the top of the page… follow with me…
That’s right, it was spelled out for anyone who was looking for the answer. I do this not to pat myself on the back, but rather to make sure people aren’t storming Guest Relations and writing letters asking why Disney would do such a silly thing.
