More changes are coming to the Haunted Mansion soon as many may have noticed a couple new additions near the very front entrance of the attraction. The setup for the RFID FASTPass readers are in place now, but have been covered with green tarps ever since being put in place.
A Cast Member at the Haunted Mansion advised that he isn’t totally sure when it will become operational, but it will likely be soon. He also told me that they put it up near the front because it just wasn’t in a functional place during an earlier trial where it was located near the front doors of the Haunted Mansion.
The readers will merely allow guests to flash their FASTPasses against a machine instead of making it necessary for a Cast Member to have to check every single ticket for times.
