New Fast Pass PLUS converting paper tickets and passes

The description of the new Fastpass+ system has some potentially nice features. But the worst part of this announcement is the fine print in the terms and conditions about being required to convert paper tickets to electronic in order to participate. That makes sense since you're using a new electronic system.

But where I have a problem is when it says... "once you convert the tickets or pass to FP+, you will no longer be able to participate in the regular fastpass system in the parks". That's ridiculous.

Also, currently people can use the regular fast pass system in multiple parks in one day. Now, if it's implemented as described it's a huge downgrade to covert annual passes or regular tickets to "paperless". The terms say ONE park only for FP+. That would be fine if you could still use "regular" FP at another park you AREN'T use for FP+, but you can't. The Dining equivalent would be like saying if you made an online reservation you then aren't allowed to make a reservation in person at a restaurant. Doesn't make sense and I certainly won't be converting my annual pass to "paperless" if it prevents me from using the regular fast pass system. The new FP+ should enhance the experience not limit it.

And if I'm reading the details correctly, annual pass holders would need to carry around an RF device (I'm assuming bracelet) and also our "de-activated" paper pass in order to still get discounts at the parks. I like that Disney is investing in making the "experience" better for guests, but they need to re-think some of the details of this plan.
