Unghh, got my 60 day email. From bad to worse
 
So I got my 'yeah you! 60 days out pick you fp+' e-mail today. This will be our fourth trip in just under 4 years and it all just sucks.

This was supposed to be our take it easy trip. First non deluxe dining take it easy, enjoy ourselves and bounce around happy fun time no schedules bonanza.

Given my FP/FP+ combo testing from our last trip, I was already not looking forward to being forced into Fp+ only but now that it's upon us... I want to cancel the trip.

Our touring plans make fp+ at MK a night mare. We'll spend 4, possibly five days in MK as it's our favorite park.

I think the only way to hit WDW from here on out will be completely off season with crowd levels of 3 or below.

Given unbiased reports of some friends , changing on site with crowd levels over 6 is difficult at best.

It could be worse, I could be living back in FLA and stuck with an AP right now.

I have been through your level of mourning. We choose to not be in the MK midday but for a parade or special event. We FP+ evening slots and use opening and closing times to avoid crowds. This plan may not work during rolling closures...

If u go a lot and u said u want a "take it easy" trip so why not just wing it. No plans no nothing just go. Do whatever get on whatever. People watch. Just chill and hang out. That's my idea of a take it easy trip. Hotel hop. Those r our best trips. Even with kids now. I wouldn't let u get it down and the more u try to plan the past passes the more u will get upset. Just go and be. And be happy! I bet u would be.

:confused3 I'm confused...... I would LOVE to have a vacation planned for 60 days from now and also have on the plans 4-5 park days.

No one is FORCING you to use FP+. Yes, FP- isn't available, but if you want to take a relaxing vacation, why are you stressing about the FP+ situation to begin with? Like another poster said, why don't you just take it easy, not plan so much and enjoy just being in the parks, seeing the details, spending time together, plan some nice dinners, etc.? You said you would be spending 4-5 days in the MK, thats a lot of time to be able to spread out seeing lots of different things in one park without having to schedule and go commando.

I just don't get posts like this. If you really are that down about going on a vacation in 60 days, why not just cancel? Like I said, I would LOVE to have a trip in the works, it just confuses me so much that people are upset about going on vacation?? :confused3:confused3:confused3 It's vacation. It is what you make of it. No one is making you to do anything.

Just my opinion - from someone in the north (where it's currently snowing for some reason) who has no plans for a vacation to WDW anytime soon, but would literally love to just go down and just BE there right now.

This.

It could be even worse than that, you could have no foreseeable vacation in your future whatsoever.

If you say "I want to cancel the trip" and it seems like you pretty much know that you aren't going to enjoy it.... Then why not cancel? Plan something else during that week that you will have the ability to "take it easy"?

hallie 03-21-2014 11:26 AM

If you really feel that way I think you should cancel. You can always go back after all the quirks are ironed out.

bella2117 03-21-2014 11:27 AM

I know for me and my family we love having plans for each park. My husband always tells me when we are in Disney "just go and I'll follow you" lol. If your not happy then cancel and find something that will make you happy.

Ravenne 03-21-2014 11:29 AM

Yeah, that doesn't sound like fun. You stay home and relax. I'll take one for the team and go in your stead. :thumbsup2

I completely agree with this. FP+ really isn't the end of the world, and certainly no reason to want to cancel the trip completely - especially when you will be spending several days in MK anyway! I guess I feel this way because I have never heavily relied on FP to begin with.

Good luck finding when that is - maybe the week or two after Labor Day. We thought we were going off-season in February (after President's Day week and before spring break). There were way more people at the parks than anticipated, including lots of school-age kids, foreign visitors, etc. Hate it that we're not bound to school schedules any more, but we still can't get a break from crowds.

Best you don't go then.

If you go wanting to have a terrible time, you will and you'll probably affect others with your cr@p attitude.

Do us all a favour - cancel and go elsewhere.

I don't understand how the email made it go from bad to worse. Was there something in there you weren't expecting?

Having 4 days at MK means you could pick 12 different rides to go on for sure when you want or if there's one ride you love, you could be sure to do it every day and you wouldn't need to be there for rope drop. Sounds more relaxing, overall.
